LONGVIEW, Texas (Reuters) - Looking for a way to help relieve stress in a heated political season, a Texas golf course owner has given patrons the chance to whack their balls at large posters of the leading presidential candidates affixed to hay bales.
In the Republican-stronghold of Longview, where Alpine Target Golf Center is located about 120 miles east of Dallas, Democrat Hillary Clinton has been the overwhelming target for patrons’ golf balls.
"Hillary Clinton is taking it a lot on the chin," owner Mike Williams said on Wednesday of the promotion that started about a week ago.
The Trump poster has suffered little damage, Williams said, noting "he is still in great shape."
