3:24 Murphys Laws regarding brand new golf balls: somehow new golf balls are water-magnetic. Though this cannot be proven in a lab, it seems to be a temporary phenomenon. It is a known fact that the more expensive the ball, the greater 'attraction to water' magnetic value it contains. Also Expensive clubs have been known to possess a sudden death syndrome in most unusual circumstances.
Note to self: Take a couple extra older balls when driving over water and laugh in face of Murphy Laws ... Out Loud!!! FORE!
