Why Golfers Need Gravity
By Torleif Sorenson on 11/7/13


Here's golfer Chris Como at the A.R. Barr Aquatic Center at Southern Methodist University, illustrating exactly why golfers need both terra firma and gravity in order to play.

Even the late NASA astronaut Alan Shepard needed gravity during his golf expedition on Apollo 14.

Now, we need some enterprising golfers to take their clubs, some practice balls, and at least one video camera aboard a "vomit comet."

You may not drop in the water hazard. You may drop within two pool lengths of the stairs and not nearer the changing rooms or the hottie lifeguard on duty.

What was in the water before he jumped? Looks like it's about to erupt.

biglou11: that's a bubble machine - it's used to greatly reduce surface tension and water density.

You do NOT want to do a belly flop from 10 metres onto still water.
