There’s a copy of the NES classic “Golf” inside every Nintendo Switch, apparently

Anyone who plays video games and grew up at a certain point in time likely remembers many of the Nintendo classics of the mid-to-late 1980s. Although Nintendo wasn’t the only video game company in town, it managed to mainstream the concept of the home video game console in a big way on the strength of a library of simple and straightforward, yet hugely playable games. And from the sounds of things, one of those games―the 1984 sports game Golf― is apparently still lurking around in the depths of the Nintendo Switch.

According to multiple reports, it’s been discovered that the data for the NES classic is actually inside each and every new Nintendo Switch console, although it’s not at all clear how to actually access and play it or if it will ever be possible. It’s no secret that Nintendo’s latest console contains an emulator; Kotaku reported on the existence of one in the Switch’s files, under the codename “Flog,” back in July.

Even though past Nintendo systems have included built-in emulators―to facilitate playing retro games purchased from the company’s online Virtual Console store, for example―it’s nonetheless notable that Golf is apparently already loaded into the Switch.

It’s unclear if and when it’ll actually be opened up for people to play, but there’s reportedly been at least one major tweak from the original NES version. Namely, mined data suggests the Switch version can be played with motion controls, rather than strictly with the system’s JoyCon controllers.

Again, unfortunately for anyone who fell in love with Golf when it was first released, the game can’t actually be played yet on the Switch. But if Nintendo eventually decides to roll out this new re-release, especially if it involved swinging a motion controller like a club, it could be a very fun time.

Police pursue speedy 79-year-old onto golf course

A high speed chase in New York started on the freeway and ended up on the fairway.

State police report that on Tuesday afternoon a trooper clocked a 2010 Toyota Corolla doing 93 mph on Interstate 81 near the town of Kirkwood and tried to pull it over.

The 79-year-old driver, identified as Freddie P. Maliwacki Sr., ignored the lights and sirens of the patrol car and led it on a pursuit that continued onto local roads. Then off them.

A Broome County Sheriff’s deputy in the next town alerted to the situation via radio laid a spike strip in the road in in front of the Corolla and flattened its tires.

The car didn’t stop, though. It pulled onto the Golden Oak Golf Course and drove around tearing up the grass until it finally got stuck in the rough.

Police arrested Maliwacki and charged him with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. He is currently being held in Broome County jail without bail.

According to a post on the golf course’s Facebook page, no one was hurt in the incident, but six greens were damaged. Repairs were completed in time to open the following afternoon.

“We are resilient! We can be knocked down, but we get up stronger every time!,” the post proclaimed.

Couple busted for having sex on golf course

Well, that’s not par for the course.

A frisky South Carolina couple was busted on a golf course Sunday for allegedly having sex near the eighth hole.

Authorities responded Sunday night to Tega Cay Golf Course after receiving a call about a possible medical situation involving two people lying on the fairway, according to the Fort Mill Times.

Other witnesses, however, said they thought the couple were deer, but then realized that it was “two people having ‘doggy-style’ intercourse,” police said.

Officers arrived to the scene to find Dakota Payne, 19, between the legs of Kiernan Hennessey, 24, performing oral sex, the Smoking Gun reported.

Watch Obama Drop The Mic After Sinking 40-Foot Golf Shot

President Barack Obama comes through in the clutch — at least when it comes to sports.

On Monday, while golfing during his Hawaiian Christmas vacation, Obama sunk a 40-foot chip shot at the 18th green of the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club.

Approximately two dozen spectators had gathered to watch the shot, and his reaction to the round-ending chip-in can definitely be added to the list of reasons why he’s the coolest president in history.

The scene was perfectly set for the picturesque mic drop. As Obama walked down the 18th fairway, the sun set behind Oahu’s Ko’olau Mountains

“The president, wearing a grey golf shirt, dark shorts, a cap and a white glove on his right hand, took his position on the fringe about 40 feet from the hole, squatted down for a better view, then took a few practice swings before chipping the ball in,” Julie Hirschfeld Davis, a White House correspondent for the New York Times, wrote in a press pool report.

As the video shows, Obama victoriously drops his wedge before spinning around to point at nearby press and spectators.

“A cheer went up when he made the shot, and POTUS raised both arms in triumph, then turned and pointed in your pool’s direction, in a ‘You guys saw that, right?’ kind of a gesture, although he didn’t say a word,” Davis wrote.


Ironically, as Obama was stunning spectators with his short game Monday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was attacking the president during a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan for how much time he spends on the links.

It was reported today he played 250 rounds of golf and he’s going to be in Hawaii, I think did they say for three weeks?” Trump said of Obama. “Two hundred and fifty rounds, that’s more than a guy who plays in the PGA Tour plays. He played more golf last year than Tiger Woods.”

While Obama is definitely an avid golfer, Trump’s statement is misleading for two important reasons.

First, CNN reported that Obama has played 247 rounds of golf since taking office in 2008 — which averages to about 35 games a year. And while there are around 47 events in the PGA Tour, it should be noted that, at his peak, Tiger Woods’ daily golf practice sessions last seven to eight hours in length.
