Golf cart chop shop, meth lab busted at The Villages

Published

on

Let this be a lesson to you: If you’re going to run a combined meth lab/golf cart chop shop out of a house in a gated retirement community, don’t be conducting front-door drug deals as well.

Ultimately, it was neighbor suspicion and calls to the authorities that led to the Sumter County sheriff’s deputies and SWAT team descending upon a home in The Villages.

Seriously, where are you more likely to find nosey neighbors peeking out from between their curtains than a retirement community? It’s not like anyone has to go to work! Everyone is home. And you’d imagine word travels fast. It’s not surprising, then, that authorities received no shortage of neighbor complaints.

But back to the golf-related element of the story: the chop shop. Per Deadspin, golf cart theft in The Villages (where everyone drives golf carts) is a big thing. Three men were arrested last month with one of the man copping to swiping more than 30 golf carts per month.

According to a report from the Orlando Sentinel authorities found evidence of a golf cart chop shop operation: Golf cart windshields, seat cushions, tires, and other parts.

“There have been some golf carts stolen in the neighborhood in The Villages here, and we’re trying to tie some of the parts to some of the stolen vehicles,” Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Robert Siemer told reporters.

It wasn’t the elderly homeowner who masterminded the drug ring/chop shop, but rather his niece. Kathleen Unrath moved in with her uncle under the pretense of caring for him, which she may have done, but she also invited four other individuals to live with them to run the operation.

Here’s WFTV with the report from the heart of the golf cart thoroughfare.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons which he has in the bag at this week’s CJ Cup. WRXers have been commenting on the switch and the clubs themselves in our forums.

For lots more photos, check out the full thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • btyh: “Holy offset.”
  • Glf_LU: “These are interesting. Not going to make a rush to judgement until I see them in person. It does look like a little more offset than I would expect to see in this model.”
  • bcflyguy1: “Kisner is not one to make a lot of equipment changes (see the GBB driver he’s still using), so if these do have staying power in his bag that will be interesting to see. I have to wonder if there’s something different about his set, because like others have mentioned there appears to be more offset on his than I recall seeing in the samples I’ve had in hand.”

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.
