As with any professional sport, it’s not difficult to understand how golfers can turn into entitled jerks. Maybe it’s the fame, the prize money, the celebrity status, or a cmbination of factors that turns them into people who behave terribly.

You can find out in person if you take the time to travel to India to play the Yak Golf Course. This course sits at an altitude of 13,025 feet, and with the air thinner at this level the ball tends to go higher and faster. Any higher and you might need to play vertical.
