Bad Ernie, Bad Sergio

Ernie Els and Sergio Garcia threw golf clubs at the Sun City Challenge over the weekend. Both were fined the Sunshine Tour maximum of 1,000 rand for the offense. That's $138.

"Both players handed over the cash immediately," reported Reuters, "which will be donated to the South African Golf Development Board."

I threw my golf clubs in the basement for the winter. My fine was 0 rand, which converts to $0.

I've thrown one club in disgust in my golf career. It was a Nickent Pipe. I broke the pipe right off it. I was disappointed in myself and also sad that the putter took the blame, when clearly the crappy greens I was on were the reason I missed the putt.
