Should golfers have to pay the bar tab after making a hole-in-one?

NCGA Golf;Summer2011, Vol. 31 Issue 3, p20
In this article, the authors discuss whether golfers pay the bar tab after making a hole-in-one. The authors who are in favor of golfers paying the bar tab state that it a golf course behavior, sets back the reputations of golfers-as-athletes, and an act of spreading the good cheer friends. Meanwhile, authors who say no state that attaching the bar tab to a hole-in-one is unfair, illogical, and plain dumb.
