skeet golf

one person drives, the other shoots
  [vote for,

There are a two possible incarnations of this sport: 1: If you have a buddy that likes golf (and you can stand this person's company), have the golfer hit drives while you attempt to pick the balls out of the air with a shotgun. You might have to limit the golfer to a sand wedge to make this possible, unless you are an incredible snap shot. 2: Set yourself up quickly at a driving range with a 12 gauge shotgun. Try to shoot any ball that comes off the line. If people stop hitting balls, yell 'Pull'. You might have to persuade them with the gun to get the balls going again.

I have yet to try either of these out. I'm guessing it will be much more challenging that those big, slow clay pigeons.

       this sounds like a twisted olympic event.   

       but can countries without golf do well in this? :)

       C'mon now. I saw the same Just For Laughs pranks that showed someone doing exactly this at a driving range as you did.
If you did not see this on TV. before you thought it up then you have my apologies but it's very suspicious.

       Really? I'd like to see that on video as I have not worked up the balls to try it. Chicago cops will not hesitate to fill me with lead for discharging a firearm in public, even if I was just shooting at golf balls. The driving range idea came second to the original idea, which I thought would be more fun. I enjoy walking about the golf course, but unfortunatly I can't hit drives well myself.
