This past weekend the Waggle staff took a road trip to Morgantown, WV for the WVU/MD football game.
[ Note: Lefty and Bogeyman are both West Virginia University alumni.]
On the drive up Friday we decided to squeeze in a round at one of our favorite courses, Whitetail in Mercersburg, PA (Look for a review here soon).
During the round we decided to have a long drive contest on #11, a drivable downhill par 4, for a $1 a man.
So here is the situation…
Lefty hit a solid drive down the middle of the fairway.
The I hit one further than Lefty, slightly left but still in the fairway.
Finally Righty aka Notorious H.B.G. (our new Harrisburg correspondent and guess who’s brother) blasts his drive further than both of us but it is not in the fairway.
So who won the $1?
Lefty and myself agreed that the ball must be in the fairway to win a long drive contest. While Righty argued that is was never declared so it didn’t have to be.
This point was debated ad nauseum during the ride to Morgantown and during the weekend at various watering holes throughout Morgantown.
So what do you think it should be? Does it need to be declared that it must be in the fairway or is it that by default?
