Sports cars in sand traps: Never not funny

Say this for Tiger Woods' performance at the PGA Championship last week: the one thing he didn't put into the sand was a sports car.

No, the driver of that Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder wasn't trying to get a better parking place for next year's Pebble Beach Pro-Am by parking in a sand trap, though we wouldn't put it past some of those drivers to try that. This particular driver had been leaving the Concorso Italiano in Monterey, Calif. when he took "a wrong turn" and, hey presto, ended up right in a sand trap.

Hey, could've been worse; it could've been one of the cliffside holes. That'd cost a lot more than a little lost dignity. (May want to get a ruling on that tow truck, though; it sure looks grounded.)

Yes, we can laugh at this poor misdirected goofball, but he's still a goofball with a Lamborghini. Might want to spring for a GPS soon, though.
