Golf is a game with a long and rich history. It has rules and regulations. It has pageantry. And in Southwest Florida, it also has French maid costumes. That’s thanks to a group of local men who call themselves the 7½ers Golf Society. Led by Neapolitan Jim Albert, the league gathers regularly to play a friendly-but-competitive game of 18 holes. After hitting the links, the league typically hits a neighborhood bar, which is where the golf gloves start to come off. Now, they hope to put all their antics on television. Working with a professional director, the group has filmed a pilot for a reality television show they’re calling “Penalty Shots.”
