      Wherever did you find this? English golfers are very serious about sticking to the rules, but I guess modifications must be made when dealing with bombs. Sometimes I drop a bomb on my scorecard. I know I have blown up during many rounds of golf.

      I honestly can’t remember where I found it – on one of the sites I was trolling today.

      “A ball moved by enemy action may be replaced….”

      That has to be one ballsy golfer!

      I was reading a book by the historian Jack Wheeler-Bennett the other day, and saw that he’d been shell-shocked as a youngster by a German bomb dropped on his school in southern England in WWI.

      The club survived the bombs:

      Snopes says it’s true — and has some links.
