Something Green for St. Patrick’s Day

GREEN CLOTHING, GREEN BEER … how about green golf balls? The above shot is of green putt-putt golf balls. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, y’all.

One thing is certain about St. Patrick, whose life is somewhat of a mystery. The patron saint of Ireland didn’t play golf. He couldn’t have—he was born more than 700 years too soon for the game, or at least the modern version of the game, believed to originate in Scotland around the 12th century.

But even had golf been around, St. Patrick might have avoided the game. Because it can be hard to be a great golfer and also be a saint.
