I watch a few golf matches on TV each year. The ones I do watch, I find them entertaining with or without Tiger Woods in the hunt on the final day. But I guess ratings used to show that without Tiger Woods having a chance to win in the final round, TV ratings on Sunday dropped. I don't know if it's still that way.
Anyway, a golf course in Pennsylvania may have the idea to increase ratings for golf matches by borrowing a page from pro wrestling.

Fore-play. How about that. The alternative action occurs near the, uh, ball washer.

Jul 3, 2007 Toledo Blade story Democratic Party treasurer teed off over golf outing's strippers
Employees of Scarlett's Cabaret in Toledo and Club Diamonds in Oregon provided beverage services last Friday at Spuyten Duyval, a public course in Sylvania Township with a Dutch name that means "In Spite of the Devil."
Lucas County Treasurer Wade Kapszukiewicz said he witnessed one woman lift up her top and reveal her chest to a group of golfers. She then lowered her shorts for their benefit.
Ryan Kemp, a general manager for Scarlett's, said he paid for four people to golf at the outing and had club waitresses staff it. The chairman and executive director of the Lucas County Democratic Party each claimed to have no knowledge of strip club employees at the fund-raiser, which cost $150 per golfer and drew more than 130 people.
Domenic Montalto, the executive director, initially pleaded ignorance. But after learning of Mr. Kemp's comments about the strip clubs' participation, Mr. Montalto changed his answer to "No comment."The golf outing comes at an awkward time for Democrats. Laborers' Local 500 officially kicked out two of its elected officers in May for embezzlement, after the men charged more than $21,000 worth of strip-club visits to their construction union.
