How absolutely beautiful. When I was a kid, we used to drive from Riverside, CA to Big Sur (and eventually up to San Francisco, where my great uncle lived).

He started a string of three consecutive birdies on No. 5 by rolling in a 20 foot putt. He hit his second shot on the par 5 sixth into a greenside bunker but blasted to 3 feet and holed the putt. Maybe Oakley and a few of his art students could go to the south side and collect all the ammunition. A sort of “leave the guns, take the ammunition” initiative. Even he knew about the violence, commenting how difficult it was to find the bullets in his native Tennessee but figuring it might be easier on the South side of Chicago.
