If you’ve ever helped plan a local golf tournament or scramble, you know that one of the biggest challenges is how to obtain sponsors or donors to reach your fundraising goal. Selling is just hard – especially to businesses who may not have anything to with your cause or charity or be a little reluctant to shell out cash for an indirect marketing gain.

Last week we shared some of the luckiest golf shots made by professional golfers. Today, we thought we'd change it up and go the other way. Let's talk about the unluckiest and just plain bad shots. We've all had these shots - some probably more than we are willing to admit - where the ball just does the most bizarre thing at the most unexpected time. The difference between you and me doing it and the professionals is that we don't have television cameras watching every single shot and the luxury (curse?) of having our shots posted on the internet and replayed in blogs like this.

We've all had our share of lucky shots while playing. Whether its a lucky bounce off a tree to bring your ball back into play, a fortunate lie in the wetlands, a fortuitous bounce off the cart path, or even a skip off a random rock onto the green, there are a number of different ways to have an otherwise poor shot turn into one you'll remember forever. The pros are no different. Let's take a look at some lucky golf shots from professional golfers.

It's spring in central Pennsylvania. That can only mean one thing... rain and wet golf courses. This year is no different. After having a snowy winter and a late thaw, the ground on many local courses is bound to be wet. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, is it? Sure playing a wet course can be annoying (nobody likes wet feet!), but wet conditions can actually improve your score if you know how the moisture affects things.
