Urban Decay Golf Classic

New, 2 comments

Journalist Charlie LeDuff set out to golf his way through an 18-mile course across the length of the city of Detroit for Fox 2 News. Somehow this was meant to "illuminate the faces and places of a city facing hard times," as he swung through scenes of decaying architecture and overgrown fields. Says our local would-be Tiger Woods to the camera “Right from the get go, I’m realizing this here might be the stupidest idea I’ve ever had” (correct). He goes on, “It’s 100 degrees, I’m wearing black–and I can’t golf. But I’m committed because they’re talking of reinventing this city.”As he later explains to a police officer, his game is "on fire;" the officer responds that the city, too, is on fire.
