A hundred dollars for whoever hits the plane.

Funny enough, the failed engine may be the only major component that could be restored for flight.

Either the plane ran through a ditch or sand hazard on landing, or the pilot did a full, full stall landing.

I've been told that any landing you can walk away from is good.

If you can use the plane again, then it was a great landing.

You could say the engine...

I've never had that happened before.. I'd assume it can't be any worse than being stuck behind a group of females.. They don't know what "ready golf" is. They sit in their cart until the person who's away hits. Then the next person will walk the 100 yards to their ball.. Practice, then hit.. Then this proceeds until all are done hitting their ball 15 yards further.

What, AGAIN? That's the third time this month!

Yeah, can't criticize the pilot - especially without knowing more about what happened.  Crazy words on the internet, I know.

/That plane was about the best design you could have to try to pull this off.
//I think it was the '90s, a Mooney landed successfully on the Daytona Beach Golf Course without damage.  That fairway was about 400 yds and mostly straight - so pretty much plenty of room, even for a heavier, speedier plane

And I thought making it through the windmill was a challenge.

They found the Malaysia Airlines thingee?

I've had to hit a golf ball into a clowns mouth before, but never over/through an aircraft.  What's the penalty if your ball gets lodged in the engine intake?  Do you take a "MH370" and declare your ping to be dead?

I would say the same as a water hazard, especially if you can't trace the ball before the batteries die down.  But you must start by looking in the wrong direction for several days.

LOST would have been far more entertaining had it taken place on a golf course.

Impressive. Someone un-made a birdie on that hole.

Sometimes happens when you over shoot an eagle attempt and find a bunker.

I love the way the photographer framed the three cops standing there next to the plane.

"Uhhh, so what do you think happened here, guys?"
 
2014-04-14 09:58:22 AM  
I'm going with Crash landing.
 
2014-04-14 10:16:15 AM  
I think this is the first time a golf course has actually been useful.
 
2014-04-14 10:19:56 AM  
Can't they just play through?
 
2014-04-14 10:31:41 AM  
From the looks of the plane, it wasn't a very good landing.

I crashed into a paywall trying to read the article.

Free relief from an immovable obstruction, and the Committee should declare any ruts to be Ground Under Repair. Now, let's play on.

And they wonder why the popularity of golf is declining.... When you shun half of your total possible viewership you get what you deserve.

wouldn't be so bad if they played faster. Most Asians are the same way.
