Wack Wednesday: The Quickest Round in Golf History


You just can’t make this stuff up.

In 1997, Bill Morse, a 7-hanidcap form Hartford, CT, celebrated his 51st birthday with a quick round of golf.  And boy do we mean quick. 

Standing on the first tee of the Country Club of Farmington, Morse launched his drive into the welcoming branches of a nearby tree.  The ball sailed through the air, rattled around inside the spruce tree, reversed direction and shot out toward the 18th green.  It landed on the front fringe and rolled, tracking like a well-struck putt, right into the cup some 30 feet away.

Hence the quickest round in America was started, and finished, in a time frame of about 30 seconds.

Slow play, never heard of it.
