Shotgun Golf: the rules

Shotgun Golf: the rules :: The London News Review OK, I will say one thing about Hunter S. Thompson; he had a great sense of irony.
Shotgun Golf: the rules
  1. The game consists of one golfer, one shooter and a field judge.
  2. The purpose of the game is to shoot your opponent's high-flying golf ball out of the air with a finely-tuned 12-gauge shotgun, thus preventing him (your opponent) from lofting a 9-iron approach shot onto a distant "green" and making a "hole in one."
  3. Points are scored by blasting your opponent's shiny new Titleist out of the air and causing his shot to fail miserably. That earns you two points.
  4. But if you miss and your enemy holes out, he (or she) wins two points when his ball hits and stays on the green.
  5. And after that, you trade places and equipment, and move on to round 2.
