Gabe was nuts.

Had 'em too.

"Let's climb the water tower," he suggested.

THe water tower was standing within the area of play at The Ponte Vedra (FL) Club. Adorned with the Club's logo, it was its iconic landmark.

And so, he climbed up it.

Right up the center of the tower.

Upon reaching the summit, he popped open the top of the tower's bulbous head and bellowed to the players below, "This is God and I have your balls!"

The he showered the people, not with love, but with beat up Titleists.

So many moons ago.
