A little birdie told us that the number of bogey men still sand-trapped in the golf club has fallen by 13 percent since 2000. By which we mean, golf is becoming less popular in the U.S. Guess it’s just par for the course, as the golfing green is anything but green. If golf enthusiasts are gonna swing it, they’ll need to get a grip. OK, we’ll stop this w-hole golf pun thing, be-fore it gets old. Tee hee.
