When I first started driving, who would (7 comments)

No not me - but Jason Hargett, from Springville, Utah just did. Jason got a phone call early that morning asking if he could be in a golf tournament at Red Ledges starting at 10:00 a.m. and he said no.

He then proceeded to do what every golfer dreams of -- sank it. After the rush and disbelief of what had just happened he texted his wife, Amyee, and said... "your life (16 comments)
