It is Monday morning, and I am sure all around the golf playing world there are conversations going on in many a workplace about their disastrous weekend round. I doubt though, that there are many golfers who had quite the same sinking feeling while standing in a bunker as did Mr. MacArthur.
Unfortunately for Mr. MacArthur during his 1931 game at Rose Bay Links in Sydney the sinking feeling was all too real.
During his round with Mr. Pope, Mr MacArthur stepped into the bunker to play when he slowly and unexpectedly sank to his chest in sand and mud.
He was so firmly stuck that assistance was needed to liberate him. I can imagine that his walk back to the clubhouse was a very uncomfortable one.
At least he had a good excuse if he lost the round!
