"Ok, you can owe me."


The Messenger referred to the golfer as a former Decatur resident. The Star-Telegram has more on the story and a portion of the 911 call.

Edit: I'll give the Messenger credit. This story is picking up potentially nationwide steam tonight. I'm not sure how they learned of it in the first place, but Bud Kennedy sent it out to his followers this morning. Shortly thereafter the Star-Telegram ran with it.  Now the SB Nation blog world has picked up on it (giving only credit to the Star-Telegram) so it might really pick up steam.  It makes sense. The slow foursome on a golf course that almost results in death will get your attention.

Edit the following morning: It's in the USA Today with, once again, the Star-Telegram getting credit.  I bet the Messenger's paywall is preventing them from getting credit.

Edit: So let it be written. So let it be done.

I guess he really shanked it.

He got his first "hole-in-one".

Oh....he sliced it.

Maybe he expected a different kind of threesome and just lost it.

He'd decided to play through. Think about that, next time you decide to launch on a slow foursome up ahead.

Welp...I guess that'll help his handicap.

Well hello Lacey Underall, it has been a long time, too too long.

Messenger source may well have been some of the Decatur Golf team since they are required to play the resort weekly.

Word that was circulating before this ever printed made it sound as if Mr. Carpenter himself might have been the prime instigator.

Is that Tim Carpenter's little brother?

House of York said...

11:13 I wondered as much since he didn't file charges.

Jack Daniels said...

Yes, he's the brother they call Gimpy.
