Whoa....glad I am not there.

I hardly ever play in such weather...or rain.  We have about 350 good days a year...why bother with the other 15!

I was struck by lightening 30 years ago.  Still makes me jump and flinch.  I ran off the golf course yesterday when the thunder got close.  Be safe out there.

That is more frightening than Mordor.

I was -7 after 13 holes once, absolutely feeling it, the best Iíve probably ever played. Then I heard thunder on 14, and ran straight for the clubhouse and never finished the round. Iím wimpy for a Canadian, but my Italian born and raised mom told me a few too many stories from her childhood about lightning bolting through her house that was essentially a hutt.

My playing partners thought I was an idiot. One of the guys held his club straight in the air and dared god to strike him down (he actually said that out loud). I canít be sure, but Iíd guess that guy is dead now.

We had lightning above our heads in a tourney a couple years ago. A playing partner commented that lightning goes from the ground to the sky (it does) and that we don't have anything to worry about since we don't have metal spikes.  I thought, IDIOT, and said I am driving to the halfway house with or without you.  He said I made the right call after we got to the house.
