FIRE IN THE HOLE

When you are conducting a campaign against the forces of darkness, details mean everything. After players nt he golf course at the Millington naval base reporrted "slow players" -- sometimes referred to as "evil golfers" -- modern technology was deployed. A global positioning system was installed in golf carts to help clubhouse officials hunt down and eliminate unpunctual putters. This is modern golf and it can't be played in a conventional manner. Civilian courses have been experimenting with the GPS for years now, while our military, due to poor funding during the Clinton administration, lagged behind. Partisan squabbling over the implementation of a satellite-based "sand trap defense system" continues to rage in the 19th hole.
