Lord, Make It Even Harder to Hit a Fairway Why Don't Ya?
After reading this over at Sports By Brooks, it was all I could do not to think of the "Entourage" episode when Vince, in always perfect acting form, tells the boys he's "arranged to skip" traffic by use of a helicopter.
I guess this is pretty similar. A man, who obviously was channeling his inner Howard Hughes, landed his Piper PA-16 Clipper (or, just, airplane) on the seventh fairway at the Marriott Lincolnshire Resort.
The pilot didn't need to emergency land or bail out because of a smoking engine, he just needed to get his kid to tennis practice on time.
I'm sorry, but this guy really has no clue at all. You're so rich you own a plane yet so dumb you land the damn thing on a fairway? What if some granny was going for the course record? What if a kid was running out because he'd fanned one over from number four? None of this is important because "traffic on Saturday is really bad?"
I would hate to see this guy in a traffic jam after work. I'm sure he'd just Monster Truck it over everybody in hopes of not having to wait for a table at Applebees.
