Hit by Tiger’s ball or Rory’s tee? A very important golf-related “would you rather?”

Published

on

Redditor Tijuanas posted the broken tee featured above. He claims it’s Rory McIlroy’s and that it hit him in the face while he was in the gallery at the British Open.

Now, the half tee has the look of an official Open ball-perching device. We’ll assume Tijuanas is telling the truth, but even if the story is a fabrication, it brings to mind an excellent golf spectating dilemma.

Would you rather get hit in the face with Rory McIlroy’s tee, ala Tijuanas, or plunked with Tiger Woods’ tee shot, ala Colin Hauck?

If you missed the Clauck incident, he captured the whole thing on video. Woods’ second shot hit Hauch, dropping him on the spot.

So, what say you, GolfWRX members, do stand in the path of the projectile for a meeting with Tiger Woods and a signed glove or is the pain not worth it?

    Give me the tee from Rors. Nothing against Tiger, but after seeing a woman get hit on the head by one of Tony Finau’s drives @ Colonial, I want nothing to do with that scenario.

    Is this topic worthy of its own article? Probably not. But then again, here I am commenting on it.

    The choice is an easy one…I would take one off the chin to get a signed glove and a hand shake from Tiger. Opportunity to go meet and interact with arguably the best player of all time.

    I love Rors too and think he will go down as one of the game’s greats but a tee just doesn’t compare.

    If you get a signed glove for getting hit with a ball, then you gotta go with getting hit with the ball – even if it hurts a bit. If you get ht with a t all you get is a broken t and a bunch of people who don’t believe it’s really Rory’s.

    Hauck, Clauck or Hauch?
    Tiger’s tee shot or approach shot?
    Meh…

Although World Woods is a bit of a drive from Tampa, it is well worth the trek north for a great round of golf! The whole area had a crazy amount of rain the past couple of weeks, but besides a few flooded bunkers you wouldn’t have known (at least the Pine Barrens course)- evidence of great course drainage. The whole round I had to remind myself I was in Florida and not North Carolina. The course is tight, tree lined, and so many waste bunkers that each golf cart comes with its own sand rake. Don’t be deterred by the description though. There are plenty of “redemption” holes which help to keep scores low. I only had time to play the Pine Barrens course, but look forward to coming back to the area to try the Rolling Oaks course. The great rack rate and the proximity of other great golf courses makes this a great location for a future FL golf trip (who’s in?!? ????).
