    This is just great. The continuing plight of our troops (not to mention the natives) in Afghanistan has remained all but forgotten by the media & the public. Soldiers continue to die, the Taliban is rising, freedom & democracy remains weak in that damaged country. But thank God we brought golf back! What a nice warm-fuzzy to remind us about how we “liberated” that place. It must be just a step away from being like Hilton Head!
