On This Day…

It Takes Balls….

February 13, 1971…..

U.S. Vice-President Spiro T. Agnew hits three spectators with golf balls during the Bob Hope Desert Classic. On his first drive, he sliced hitting a man and his wife with the same ball. After apologizing, he hit his next shot into the gallery striking a woman in the ankle, sending her to the hospital for x-rays.
The previous year at the same tournament, he hit teammate Doug Sanders in the back of the head.
