Man Shoots Perfect Round of Putt-Putt Golf 13

netbuzz writes "Rick Baird, a 53-year-old IT manager from North Carolina, recently accomplished a feat seen only twice in half a century and not once since 1979: a perfect round of Putt-Putt golf — 18 holes, 18 shots. He tells Network World: 'When I got ready to play 18 everybody was still gathering around to watch. I had to back off once since people were moving and I did not want there to be any distractions, and I needed a deep breath to calm down.'"

  • He's obviously qualified to complete projects with the minimum of resources. He should be elected president to trim down the bloated federal government! Probably more qualified than most politicians.

  • I've seen courses where a perfect game is relatively easy. I've seen other where if you get a perfect game, you're cheating your ass off.

      Apparently there are tournaments with regulation courses. Who knew?

      From TFA:

      Putt-Putt is the name of the franchised courses we play at. Most people call it miniature golf but there is a difference to us. We have no pirate ships or animal figures on the playing surface. All the holes at a Putt-Putt are designed to be able to make a hole in one if you can execute the correct shot. And all our holes are par 2, like regulation golf is designed.

      Seriously, not that this is a big deal for humanity, but trust someone on slashdot to call anything "relatively easy" while sitting on his 4' ass munching ring dings... "Yeah I know, but that's like, one of the *easiest* cancers to cure..."
      • I'm not saying what he did is easy, as I know nothing about this particular course.
        The whole point of my comment was "what is the standard, and is this really worth giving this guy a pat on the back for?"
  • he really Putt that one away!

  • Tiger Woods was excited to try out this course, until he found out it was Putt Putt and not Butt Butt.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
