1) Yes, that's what Roger's sniffing all right. Either he's going to get the giggles or tell the officer the truth.

2)"a little" to Doc = a lot to anyone else. But what can a tinkerer do to a golf club? (...just curious...)

Have you ever seen a club testing machine?

Now amp it up so the machine can impart enough energy to make a golf ball go 344 m/s...

Those would be as damaging as hailstones

Take a large headed metal wood. Mill out the sweet spot in a circle. At the bottom of the hole, put a pin, a holder for a .32 blank, then an anvil mounted on a replacement surface plug. Add a restraint system.

When the club head hits the ball, the surface depresses until the .32 hits the firing pin. The force of the blank is transferred to the ball, in addition to the club energy.

Also, a 1.68" cohorn mortar, a Parrot or Swivel gun, a linear accelerator with a iron-cored ball, a 2.75" rocket with a small payload, exotic club shaft materials.

What can't a tinkerer do to a golf club? (Except make it into a coffee maker or toaster.)

For the REALLY old players (we are talking Geezerriffic old)they use a .22 blank and it imparts a bit of extra oomph on the ball .
