SPORTS BIZARRE

Golfers, welcome to hole No. 7 at Mosholu Golf Course.

Length: 400 yards. Par: 4. Obstacles: two sand traps; one fleeing criminal; cops pursuing in golf carts.

The last two obstacles came into play when a chase involving a fare-beater and Transit police officers went from a New York subway to the fairways Thursday.

After a lengthy foot chase, the officers borrowed two unattended golf carts to speed after the suspect.

Jeffrey Shook, 26, was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, theft of service and possession of a weapon, a .38-caliber revolver.

The chase over, golfers got back to their games "as if nothing had happened," officer Felix Padilla said.
