So, what do you do when there’s a ton of traffic (If you live in Chicago then you would know!) on the roads? Hit golf balls of course! That’s exactly what soon to be PGA Tour rookie John Peterson did while in traffic on the I-20 in Texas. I’ll let the videos speak for themselves, oh and did I mention it was at least 21 degrees outside? No? Well, I just did, here’s the videos courtesy of Golf Digest!
I bet the people in the cars were probably like “What in the world does he think he’s doing?!” “Wh- why is he pulling out that golf club!?!?” “What do you think you’re going to do with that?!”. All kidding aside, I think I already like this young rookie who has a very good-looking golf swing. I appreciate the fact that he’ll hit shots no matter where he is. Back in my old neighborhood, I used to go out to the elementary school around the block in at least 20 to 30 degree weather to hit golf balls with my 7-iron and pitching wedge. I had to use yellow balls of course because there was ton of snow since you know, Chicago is known as like, Alaska’s sister or something.
It can be one of the coldest places on earth or it can be really hot, take your pick! Yes, I was wearing a puffy looking coat so it was harder to swing but I went at it anyway and it wasn’t really that bad. So that leaves me with this question for you guys. Have you ever hit golf balls in the snow? If so, tell me all about it, I’d love to hear it! I love getting the community involved so I really would enjoy hearing your thoughts! John, keep doing you buddy, looking forward to seeing you out on the course during the new PGA Tour season!
