GOLF BALL'S WIERD FLIGHT GIVES A 405-YARD DRIVE
Seattle, Wash. -- Here's a golf story sworn to by Eg (Egbert) Brix, former Washington football and field star, and attested by the men he was playing, two club professionals and four other persons.
Brix, the story goes, drove off the third tee for the longest hole on the course, 405 yards.The ball sliced out of bounds, hit the concrete highway, bounced onto the top of a Ford; teetered on the car's top; rolled off under the rear wheel, where it was pitched in such a manner as to cause it to leap into the air, fly across a ditch and land on the No. 3 green, which had been Brix's objective, and roll to within four feet of the cup. ====================================================
