Awesome Timing of
STS-119's Sonic Boom

Well, I guess it would have been more perfect had it been after Tiger's tee shot... After Vaughn Taylor's tee shot at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando there are two sonic booms from the space shuttle landing sixty miles east. Someone in the crowd can be heard saying "Wow, nice shot Vaughn!" I don't think Tiger is confused as the announcer suggests (he has a house in Florida and if I can hear the booms at my house in Houston some times, I am sure he has heard them before). He is just standing there looking at Vaughn awestruck by the timing and it stole a bit of his thunder. Classic! I wish Dad was around to see this video - he would have really appreciated it!
