San Diego Navy League’s Golf Scramble

An unexpected sprinkler pipe rupture during the Navy League Golf Tournament provided an interesting problem for some golfers on the first tee. It should be noted that Navy and Coast Guard players went around the new hazard while the Marines went straight through it.
