A white guy golfing in the streets of Detroit would appear to be so out of this world crazy that nobody would mess with him. Pretty damn brilliant actually. The next cracker who tries this probably won't be as lucky.

No way is it 18 miles from 8 Mile Road to Belle Isle no matter how circuitous a route you take.

Google Maps shows the most direct route between the state fair grounds and Belle Isle being 14 miles. With a few deviations, 18 miles is certainly doable.

That means you have to be 2,525 strokes under par.

Yawn.

/my (white, middle aged, suburb-dwelling) dad bikes through Detroit (on a Schwinn) pretty much every weekend, as long as there's not snow on the ground
//that said he isn't planning to bike down Cheyne street from the park again

He was armed (with golf clubs), so wasn't an easy target.

// you leave the armed people alone and go for the unarmed folks.

If I was going to go through detroit on foot I'd want a club for protection too.

My Google maps had it at 11.3 miles walking a route involving Conant and Mt Eliott. I forgot 2 miles for the bridge and distance within Belle Isle. I'll concede it's way more possible than I initially thought.

Par 3,168? WTF?

Whoever wrote this shouda asked someone that plays golf for help.

18 miles is roughly the length of 5 regulation golf courses... which even the saddest sack golfers can complete in 600 strokes... and that includes 2-4 putts per hole. Just one hole to putt? 500 strokes.

//that guys swing is f-ing ridiculous

Oh Mrs. Crane, you're a little monkey woman. Yeah, you're lean, mean, and I bet you're not too far in between are ya. How'd you like to wrap your spikes around my...

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

"It's a hundred degrees, I'm wearing black, and I can't play golf".

/that's OK as long as the beer is kept cold.

The great thing about golfing in Detroit is that you don't have to worry about hitting anyone, and the green fees are really cheap.

I love Charlie LeDuff and what he's trying to do around here.
