Golf Course Adds A 26-Foot-Tall Roaring T-Rex Robot, Pisses Off Pro Tour
Meet Jeff, the giant dinosaur on the course at the Australian PGA Championship.
The Australian PGA Championship begins tomorrow at the Palmer Coolum Resort in Queensland, where some of the best golfers in the world will have to navigate an unusual hazard — a 26-foot-tall mechanical T-Rex named Jeff.
According to the AP, Jeff the T-Rex is situated between the ninth green and tenth tee, and "flips its tail and opens its mouth to unleash a menacing roar when anyone approaches." Jeff will be powered down during the tournament.
Predictably, the Australian PGA is pissed off, and will be moving next year's tournament to a new course after 11 years at the Palmer Coolum Resort.
