J-Mac: Santorum Hit Floating Green

Jimmy-MAC: Update on “Floatergate”: Got a call from Cd’A Resort GC from an eyewitness to THE SHOTS HEARD ‘round Cd’A and got the okay to post this. Distance was set out at 230 yards. Santorum hit a higher lofted driver. Three balls hit. First one went in the drink. Don’t recall order of next two balls but one ended up in the trap and the other held the back rough. No wind that day. I was told Santorum has a pretty good swing and actually gets (or had gotten) lessons from a pro in Texas that the eyewitness actually knows. I had gone on and on about the hardness of the green’s surface being closer to a tarmac in February but apparently they keep a cover on the green during the winter months. That coupled with the interior makeup of the floater (the inside is pretty ingenious if you’ve ever seen pictures or the clips that has aired on the Travel Channel) keep the green at a warmer temperature. I should have taken that into consideration. (Jesse Tinsley SR file photo: Jerry Jaeger of Hagadone Hospitality & Rick Santorum joke about Santorum's golf shot at rally in Coeur d'Alene in February)

Question: Can you hit the floating green at 230 yards?
