Tektite golf   (+2, -1)  [vote for, against]

Departs from regular golf during the drive, which is executed by swinging into a pool of molten lava. The player employs a club (really a spoon with a long handle), sending a clump of lava skyward, where—hopefully—it cools into a more or less spherical object before it hits the fairway, rolling to a smoking stop.

Would it actually cool in time? I guess it doesn't matter.+

Watch out for those duffers - they tend to splash.

You may want a set of new graphite club heads to go with the graphite shafts.

Hehehe, it's genius. This is definately what the Devil would play while not playing the fiddle.

It also doesn't matter that the lava ball would be pretty damn heavy. [+]

Swing that club polo-style from the back of your pterodactlyl.
