| | Michael Douglas and friends - cheating phuckers!
I know I know it is just a silly made for tv BS charity thing that NO ONE TAKES SERIOUSLY but I have this "pet peeve" about cheating being tolerated and exhaulted on national TV.
The winning team teed off into the rocks and desert to the left of 18 fairway and decided to play from there in this scramble. The BIG DUFUSS Tom Arnold, who has no business on ANY golf course at all(though I think he is kind of funny as an actor he is not even a faux golfer ), then CLEARLY WHIFFS and the announcer jokes about it as a "practice swing" and he hits again and they take that shot. Well when he whiffed that was his SHOT. By any reasonable standard when he hit again they were laying 3 there not 2! Heather "nice tatas" Locklear made a long putt to WIN ( and Arnold took every opp to maul/molest her a couple times after as if he was interested in the game LOL ) but it was really for a par not a bridie and the last team tied them. The least they could have done was to EDIT OUT his whiff and not let kids see people cheat on TV. There may have been many other incidents of cheating NOT CAUGHT on camera or broadcast so it is probably a stupid thing to say but I just don't like seeing cheating and rule breaking made light of in golf - even silly celebrity golf!
The other thing that stood out is that Mark "Marky Mark"/"Dirk Diggler" Wahlberg has got some SERIOUS game to him! He was not only bombing about 100 yds past all the other celebs he really had a clue and some intensity! Interesting that he plays lefty and putts righty too. They said he actually HAS aspirations of being on tour and while he isn't THAT good, as a reported 8 capper, he was impressively long and made a few decent putts at it. He certainly could be a future contender on that other CELEBRITY TOUR if he put some time into it. It amazes me that NON-GOLFERS would agree to play in this thing and absolutely embarass the crap out of themselves on national TV. I do get a kick out of watching Joe Pesci and a Haley joel Osment bang away, plus Heather and her tatas was pretty SWEET!
