Most embarrassing shot you ever hit....
Posted 02 March 2016 - 12:58 AM
Playing at my fav local muni with 2 fellow Wrx guys and our buddy who was a teaching pro/our collective instructor at the time.
First hole is a par 4, staging area as well as a marshal/starter.
Groups behind us waiting in line as we are getting ready to tee off, group ahead in the fairway about 280 out. We are on the back tees, marshall tells us to go ahead. We kinda chuckle and say no we are good, we'll wait til they clear out as they were well within range for all of us.
Long story short(ish), all 4 of us cold top our tee shots and barely make the fairway haha!

I was so pissed, I stripped off a layer and promptly piped the next one down the middle, stuffed a wedge and rolled in the putt for a 5.
The caddie looked at me and said "that may have been the best bogey I have ever seen". I went on to fire a 77, so it wasn't all bad.

Probably most embarrassing shot was in high school. A guy bet me I couldn't hit a 3W between the goal posts of the football practice field maybe 150y away. I took he bet. Necked the 3W low and left into the Janitors minivan window. Shattered it. Parents homeowners insurance covered the window...got away with a store that I was just practicing wedges and skulled one off the side walk. haha.

First hole short PAR 5. Decent drive leaving 230. I manage to hit a weak 3W with a little fade that found it's way between the 2 front bunkers to 2 1/2 feet off the green. 40 feet to the ping.
My shot from there is a bump and run putt with a 7 iron. I managed to bang it into the ground about 6 inches behind the ball and completely whiff it. Second attempt ends up 2" from the hole. Tap in PAR.
The embarrassing part was explaining to everyone why I scored a PAR and not a bird. They were all looking for their balls scattered all around the green in the rough (we play ready golf) and did not witness my faux pas, only seeing the 2" finish putt assuming it was for bird. Ouch! Never whiffed that shot in my life.

The thing is, the course we are playing has those plastic globes that resemble golf balls to mark the tees. My ball completely obliterated one of the globes marking the ladies tees ahead of us and sent plastic shrapnel everywhere. My ball ricocheted up into the air and back towards me. Naturally i ducked for cover so that I didnt lose an eye, and my ball landed perfected back in my divot on the teebox.
Couldnt even attempt to play the hole we were laughing so hard. I picked up my ball, and the remaining half of the tee marker that made it out intact, and moved on to the next hole. That tee marker now sits on my desk... a perfect little bowl to hold stuff and a constant reminder of that beautiful shot.

I hate seeing people whiff. It's more embarrassing for me to see others do than if I were to actually do it myself for some reason. Do I laugh, cry, give them advice, hold them? It's a sh*tty situation all around.

Second most embarrassing I was playing with the father in law for the first time at their neighborhood course. There was a group of 5 in front of us on the green in a par 4 so we go ahead and tee off, I crush my drive and end up about 5 yards off the green. we finish up the hole and head to the next tee box where the group is waiting to let us play through. They start asking who hit the tee shot and and saying how good it was so I'm feeling pretty good as I get ready. I proceed to top the ball and dribble it about 50 yards down the fairway and into a creek. Felt completely deflated after that.

Playing in last year's State Sr. Open, I birdied the first hole with two nice shots and a hard breaking putt. 7 holes later I'm 8 over par.
The embarrassing thing is that I quit. Not walk off quit, but stopped trying. Shot 87, 86 for the two days. I can live with the big numbers, but the bad attitude bugs me even now. I was terrible company for those two rounds, and I knew it at the time, but couldn't get past the disappointment.

The guy didn't even look back at us. He just drove right through the fairway without knowing.

I've had a couple over the past year :-) First one was at my old home club, playing the 7th hole which is a fairly short par 4 dogleg left, with a road down the left hand side. There's a metal sign post for the club, right on the bend of the road. I proceed to take driver to try and cut the corner, except I completely snap hook it low and dead into the center of the sign. There's a massive bang, a big golf ball dint in the middle of the sign and the ball ricochets right back at us. One of our group then says 'well that sign has never been in play before...'.
Latest one was where I was playing with a group of people at my new club - I didn't know any of them, and I was nervous. I was playing terribly - couldn't get a drive off the tee at all, or any shots really. I completely duffed one off the tee, and it comes to rest about 20 metres away on a bare patch of dirt. My playing partners had already gone ahead, leaving me to stew in my own incompetence. I then angrily take my 4 iron out, swing wildly at it and of course it comes off a low screamer slicing right at my playing partners ahead. I yell out, just in time for one of them to cop my ball a glancing blow across the throat - thank god it didn't hit him full on in the adams apple, or we would have been in major medical trouble. He's lying on the ground, clutching his throat and I race up there apologising profusely and checking that he's ok.
Needless to say, that was an awkward round of golf after that - they made sure to stay behind me on every shot...
