Golf and Politics

November is the month elections, I asked myself who in the world of Professional Golfers might be active in politics? We don’t really hear about Golf Pro’s and their party affiliation, which is probably a good thing.

Let’s pretend for a little bit. Which Professional Golfer would make a better politician? John Daly or Ben Crenshaw.

John Daly would probably legalize marijuana and he would probably allow high-fatty foods back in our school cafeteria. John has a carefree attitude, perhaps our national defense would suffer?

Ben Crenshaw would keep a lot of things the same. He probably would be a big support of history in schools. We all know Ben is a big golf historian. Ben would probably be a bigger supporter of building a fence between Mexico and his beloved Texas.

THE “CHUNNEL” vs. CHARLES BARKLEY’S GOLF SWING

Today’s scholars have long debated replacements for the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; with modern marvels such as Europe’s Channel Tunnel and The Petronas Towers in Malaysia in hot debate. There are many options in the modern world to choose from, but who sets the criteria for becoming a “wonder?” Must a “wonder” be a structure or useful tool of civilization? Can it not be simply something you “wonder” about? Could it not be something that is so indescribable and mysterious to our modern universe that it defies explanation? If that be the case, I can think of no better wonder than that of the wonder that is Sir Charles Barkley’s golf swing.

To truly understand what constitutes a modern marvel or wonder, one must first look to the past. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are classified as the Great Pyramid of Giza, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Temple of Artemis, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Mausoleum of Maussollos, Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Some may mock when comparing Charles Barkley’s golf swing to the Great Pyramid of Giza, but both appear very similar upon serious scrutiny. Facts: Sir Charles nor the Great Pyramid have ever shot below par and neither have successfully hit a golf ball from the sand they are constantly surrounded by. Both rest in the “100’s” and both are very powerful forms that once dominated their environment, but now are resigned to obscurity in the desert. Both have countless videos being made regarding their construction that fascinate and confuse several experienced professionals. While all other original wonders have been destroyed by fire and earthquakes, both the swing and pyramid remain.

For a more modern comparison, I compare Chuck’s chunk to that of the total earth removed from the Channel Tunnel project. Both have removed vast tonnages of soil in order to simply get something from “A” to “B.” Both are constantly in danger of collapsing although authorities have assured the public that both are completely safe. At any moment, due to the enormous complexities of the endeavors, both can serious cause death or injury to those in their path. The Channel Tunnel is also featured in the climax of the1996 film Mission: Impossible, while Sir Charles swing is... well, you get the idea.

For those more mysterious wonders; how about the monuments on Easter Island vs. the Sir Charles swat? Countless discussions continue to evolve by leading scholars and tradesmen regarding the nature and origin of the two with little conclusive results. How were they built? What is the purpose? Are aliens involved? Should children be allowed near them? These and other similar questions remain closely intertwined as both Charles Barkley’s golf swing and other modern wonders fight for a legitimate place among the world’s greatest.
