I Don't Get It
By Kickntrue on 1/7/11
I'm usually all for anything golf- even pure goofiness- but I've got to admit- I don't get this at all.
This video was featured on the front page CNN.com today. I guess I watched it and passed it on- so mission accomplished as "news" on CNN's part- but ... seriously, how lame.
At least white 'fro guy gets the "glory." What a sad and lonely life 300 days of traveling for "Speedy" the ball feeder must be. That can't really pick up the chicks, right?

"The sport of speed golf."
Gotta love the hair.
which is worse? the hair or being "Speedy" the ball feeder?
Wonder how many times speedy has had his hand smashed.
@Merlin - I was thinking that to, ouch! I wouldn't be placing them there with anything less than a hockey glove!

I didn't listen to the sound - what's the deal with the ball-setter reaching up at his neck? Is he flicking a ball up there with his left hand, and grabbing it to place down with his right?
Speed Golf...another event to fill up the silly season on the Golf Channel...maybe in 2011
Dang it , you made me look at that stupid video(and the 30 second intro) again. I couldn't figure that out either, unless it was a timing thing to get his hand out of the way.
Couldn't a person do it even faster if the balls just rolled out of a chute ? Sorry to give something so dumb so much thought. It's kinda like punkin chunkin, people with too much time on their hands.

I think it's just the speed he takes his hand away to keep it from getting hit. Looks like he just gets into a rhythm that works.
Moron. The point of golf is to take as few strokes as possible. What's next, high volume golf, where the winner is the one with the most strokes? Yay for people!!!
