Shot From Rough Sparks Golfer’s Round, He Proceeds To Burn Up The Course – Literally

Jeez, talk about your tough round.

A golfer at the Shady Canyon Golf Course in Irvine, California made what has to be considered a one-in-a-million shot Saturday after finding himself stuck in the rough that lines one of the course’s fairways. Trying to blast his ball out of the rough, the unidentified golfer presumably struck some kind of a rock, sending off a spark which ignited what developed into a 12-acre fire. It took nearly seven hours and two hundred firefighters to finally contain the blaze.

Now that’s some serious on-course pyrotechnics. Take that, Tiger Woods.
