Beer Golf, an offshoot of beer pong, looks like a great time


SHARE THIS STORY

If you haven't played beer pong, you either didn't go to college or have lived quite a sheltered life. It's fun, pressure-packed and a delight.

So, imagine our joy when we saw the new game of beer golf. The idea came to life in "Celebrities in Golf Carts," a digital series produced by the Southern California Golf Association. In this episode, host Mark Willard plays nine with Brian Baumgartner, who most people better know as Kevin from "The Office." After the round, Willard challenges his guest to a challenge, and beer golf was the one he devised for Baumgartner.



The idea is pretty simple. Instead of tossing ping-pong balls into six red Solo cups, half-filled with beer, in a triangle shape, the two golfers chipped golf balls into six full pitchers of beer in a triangle. The first player to three won, with Willard eventually taking the title.

Unfortunately, a whole lot of trash beer was wasted here since no one had to drink after each successful chip, which is ridiculous. We'd suggest a penalty pitcher with lines to mark sixths of the pitchers, which should be consumed after your opponent makes each chip.

But we'll let it slide for now.
