Columnist Has Idea For New Rain Dance
Mark Woods, a metro columnist at The Times-Union in Jacksonville, is at The Players Championship this week, and apparently, has figured out how to bring some much-needed rain to the area: Leave your umbrella in the car. Woods writes that is exactly what he did Tuesday, and sure enough, the rains came down leaving him all wet. Wildfires keep popping up in Florida, and more than 100,000 acres have burned in Georgia. Rain is being forecasted for the rest of the week, and if any of the visiting PGA golfers complain about the precipitation, Woods suggests this punishment: "Any golfer who complains about dry, windy conditions making the greens unfair shall be immediately taken to the nearest wildfire and handed a hose." Not a bad idea. You can read Woods' column in its entirety here.
