Golfers swing at Clinton, Trump at Texas driving range

LONGVIEW, Texas (AP) — Stressed voters can swing at Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at a driving range in Texas where photos of the presidential candidates are displayed as targets for speeding golf balls.

Alpine Target Golf Center in Longview has hung the portraits on round hay bales since late October. The photos show the Democrat and Republican candidates for the White House with mouths wide open, as if ready to catch a ball.

It’s hard to tell if golf balls count as votes for or against the candidates, but rancher Craig McAlpine says the balls amassed around Clinton’s hay bale indicate more people have teed off in her direction.

Mike Williams, the owner of the center about 115 miles southeast of Dallas, says it’s just a “touch of fun in this stressful election.”
