Robert Trent Jones Jr., the Philippines and an AK-47

Bloomberg News, which isn't typically known for its strong features, has done this amazing piece on Robert Trent Jones Jr. and his involvement in the overthrow of the Marcos government in the Philippines. Worth a read just for the bit where Jones goes back to the Philippines and is told he'll be tortured for info, so his driver hands him an Ak-47. Catch it here.

That is a courageous act if ever I heard one...but with that tough an attitude, how the hell did John Cleese ever tie him to a chair and redesign one of his courses? ("The New NXT DIISTANCE....OOOOOOOH YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THEM!")
