LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – Mother Nature pushed back the finish to the Barbasol Championship this weekend and created quite the spectacle on a golf course.No one was on the Lakeside Golf Course when Friday’s big storms moved through. On Saturday morning, golfers noticed a crazy scorch mark on the second green. They say it appears lightning struck the hole’s pin, creating the widespread burn pattern on the grass around it.
