66 - The score posted by Angelo 'America's Worst Avid Golfer' Spagnolo in June 1985. Spagnolo, a grocer from Pennsylvania, knocked 27 balls in the water, and ended up with a 257 total for his round. OUCH!...
1,650 - Back in February 2005, during the Super Bowl XXXIX media party, 1,650 shots were hit on the 17th. Only 101 balls found the dance floor. DOUBLE OUCH!!
4 - The amount of time divers from The Best Balls company enter the pond every year to retrieve lost balls, selling them for seven cents a pop. CHA CHING!
