College golf team penalized for going pantless in photo

This is not proper attire for the golf course

Athletes posing for risque calendars is nothing new, so perhaps the 15 members of the Bethany College men’s golf team figured it was no big deal to strip, place their clubs strategically in front of their groins and say cheese.

And then post the photo on Facebook.

Unfortunately, Bethany is a small Lutheran school in Lindsborg, Kan., that plays in Midwest events like the Evangel Tournament, the Central Christian Tournament and the Oklahoma Baptist Tournament.

Christian college golf takes a dim view of nudity, even partial nudity. So athletic director and golf coach Jon Daniels, who was emailed the picture by someone, suspended the team for three tournaments.

“I’ve been around a long time and I think this is a case of young people who just don’t think beyond the moment and don’t realize who they’re hurting,” Daniels told the Witchita Eagle.

Yes, and those harmed by viewing bare legs and torsos cry out for suspensions.

Bethany, by the way, is very good on the links: The Swedes have won 11 of the last 15 KCAC championships.

Captain Jack Hiscock reportedly said the team would appeal the suspension to the school president.

In their defense, it should be noted that the golfers seem to be covering up mostly with drivers. Could have been worse. They could have used their putters.
