I watched a guy shoot in a hanger in a game of golf once and as the cb rolled the ob fell into the pocket. The cb lipped out on the corners and they marked a hickie up for him.

Stated like a man who has lost games ducking when he had a shot. Lose a good 200 or so games over the years ducking when you had a shot and things finally start to dawn on you. The interesting part...

another idea for a tie breaker shootout, just in case anyone happens to be listening, is a one hole ghost shootout.

id say the best way to do it is let each player rack, they pick a pocket,...
