Did you know why Golf Courses have 18 holes - instead of some other number?


Here's why -
During a discussion among the clubs membership board at St. Andrews in 1858, a senior member pointed out that it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of Scotch.
By limiting himself to only one shot of Scotch per hole, the Scot figured a round of golf was finished when the Scotch ran out...

Interesting.  Problem is, Scottish drunks drank pints.  A fifth is commonplace today so it should be more holes or until you cannot stand up anymore...

cool video - shows it penetrating several until it is caught by one - and the slug flattens out.
