Famed prognosticator, Kurnczie the Greek, was seriously injured while on a recent trip to Manistee, Michigan. In town to survey the grounds for this year’s TPC golf tournament, the Greek was injured while venturing into the waters of Lake Michigan on the grounds of the rented TPC home. Early reports indicate KTG was inadvertently speared in the left testicle by a 200 pound Bull Stingray, similar to the fish that tragically killed famed alligator hunter Steve Irwin just days ago.
In an exclusive interview with the NGA, KTG was asked why he was swimming in the lake. He responded “Didn’t you know that Manistee was the Sting Ray capitol of Michigan??? I wanted to be able to swim with one of these majestic creatures that are so common on the shores of Lake Michigan during this time of year.” Asked where he got the information that “Manistee is the Sting Ray capitol of Michigan”, Kurnczie the Greek had no coherent response. It is believed he is still suffering from the after effects of his recent accident in Brazil and the toxins that were pumped into his sack.
