Fess up: Your worst golf shot ever.
Posted 11 January 2018 - 05:26 PM
I was a freshman playing #6, which meant I went off in the first group for my school and what seemed like a ton of people were watching. On the first tee, I swing a driver and didn't even know where the ball went. I turned around and luckily my teammates were able to point me in the right direction while trying to hide their laughter. I somehow hit it almost dead left, it hit a tree and kept going left and ended up in the 9th fairway about 100 yds left and 50yds forward of my original position. I had to hit it over the range with a 5 iron over everybody that was still warming up to get it back on the 1st hole.
Not a great way to start the round....but I did get away with a bogey on that hole.

As a side note, Hondo is a good player 2-3 hdcp.
Rainy evening, so our men's league was cancelled but a few of us went out to play 9 anyway. First hole we are playing is a 550 yard, par 5. Hondo hits it in the right rough and has to punch out leaving himself about 220 yards in.
He decides to hit his hybrid.
He swings at it and just catches the top of the ball and drives it straight into the ground - but it doesn't stay there! Instead, it goes backwards about 15 feet in the air and lands about 10 feet behind us...it takes one small hop and then the bizarre spin on the ball catches and it comes zipping forward and stops right in the hole created when he topped the ball originally.
Left us all in stitches laughing and then arguing whether that was actually an imbedded ball ruling - since the ball didn't actually stay in its own pitch mark.

Here is the approximate location of the old bunker in front of the green and said Dining Room window that, mercifully, didn't break.

Nothing was OB yet, so he made the long trek over to the drop area hitting 3 wood to continue play (mind you over the fairway, cart path, street, cart path, etc...). I had never even contemplated it was possible!

And Jim is also the only guy I've played with who has had a hole in one--that one managed to hit the cart path first.

Proceed to tee up with my 4 hybrid. Hit it probably around 70 yards left into the deep woods, ball completely lost.
Buddies laugh and requested that I shoot again since they were making a lot of noise during my back swing, which I didn’t mind really, but accepted their kind offer and proceeded to hit again.
You know what is going to happen….. Daft it, now right into the deep woods as well, even worse than the first one.
Lost 2 balls by now and proceed to the drop area about 100 yds from the green up hill, hitting 3.
Thin bullet past the green, everyone laughing hard. Chipping 4, 2 putted, 6.

1) I was hitting driver off a slighly elevated tee going out with a fairway parallel on the left coming in with no protection either way. Straight air. The foursome in the other fairway was about to hit their approach shots when I corkscrewed my driver and sent a laser right at them. I was yelling fore as they were hitting the deck like colorfully dressed bowling pins. I reteed under withering glares ... and did the exact same thing. One of the older gents was really pissed and hollered at me to watch what I was doing. Wtf? So I yelled back “If I knew what I was doing I’d be on the Tour!”

Good god, that's just awful. Did anyone try to put it out of it's misery? I'm not sure what's laugh-worthy about this...
