Can’t resist pointing out this photo by Matt Sullivan for Reuters, taken during practice for this week’s PGA Championships. The tournament is in Wisconsin — hence the cheese head atop the tiger. (That is, atop the tiger with giant biceps and claws holding a golf ball on a tee. Atop a baseball cap.)
So why didn’t anyone tell me that there’s a scene in The Girl WIth the Dragon Tattoo where a young Swedish woman waving a golf club chases a sex fiend out of the house and into his SUV and then, as he tries to careen off down the driveway, she bashes in the driver’s side window with the five iron?(It looked like a five iron to me, though that’s not specified in the movie. Just like real life!)
