What the WHAT!?!?!

GHETTO GOLF!?!?!? Yahoo news reports...
A video game developed by Illfonic and seeking a publisher, it's billed as "Billy Madison" meets "Friday." (Perhaps they meant "Happy Gilmore"?) MTV Multiplayer more accurately nails it as "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" meets "Tiger Woods '09."
And based on that screenshot above, you can get a pretty good idea of what's involved -- cruising through a blighted urban landscape using your golf club to bash the heck out of stuff. You know, just like Davis Love III and Charles Howell III used to do when they were kids.
Anyway, you're supposed to play an 18-hole "course" here, but you've got to traverse all kinds of terrain and dodge any number of bad guys to even find the freakin' holes. Plus, you get to make use of explosive golf balls, rubber golf balls and spiked golf balls, just like Stevie Williams keeps tucked away in Tiger's bag.
You shoot golf balls through dumpsters and abandoned buildings, working your way up from mean, gang-ridden, war-torn streets all the way to the country club, exactly like Phil Mickelson did.
UNFREAKINBELIEVABLE!!!! This is real people.....some one is trying to make a video game called "Ghetto Golf" to inspire black kids to play golf....3 words....WHAT THE WHAT!?!?!
