In the hole.

Skins game with lots of carryovers on the line. My shot landed in an impossible position in a bunker behind a tree and well below the green. All I wanted to do was get it out of the sand, avoid as much of the tree as possible, and perhaps get it up and down from wherever it ended up.

I hit it high, it bounces off a limb, lands on the green and rolls in.

The looks on the faces of the other three fellas was priceless. All I could do was walk up, take my ball out, proclaim my birdie and sit back and watch them all make par.

No way could I, or the Bryan Brothers for that matter, pull that one off again. But I have a feeling it was funnier to me than it was to them. (Although they were laughing at the shot and ribbing me for the rest of the round about it)

In a high school golf match this guy comes and shows up to the first tee bragging about his new r7 quad TP (the $800 one) . First shot, with everyone watching, he hits it dead off the toe, the ball his the tee marker, goes backwards onto the practice putting green OB.

I've hit a few into swimming pools. Luckily both places the pools were not open yet. You have to play early in the am to avoid the swimmers.

I don't know if this is a funny place at least not to me but I hit a chip over a green and when I walked over I saw my ball laying at the base of a tree. I reached down to pick it up because I couldn't play it not noticing it was laying on top of a curled up baby cooper head snake. He had second thoughts about me retrieving my ball. I jumped 4 ft in the air and went running away. I HATE snakes.

Many years ago I played a course that had a huge palm tree right in the middle of one of the fairways. Of course I hit my ball dead center right into the low hanging palm fronds and watched it drop straight down.

There was only one big problem. The ball that fell out wasn’t mine! Apparently my ball dislodged another ball and got stuck there instead.

About a foot from a breakfast burrito at the local muni.

An entire breakfast burrito.

Just sitting in the fairway.

Middle of the fairway, normal right? Well a coyote came trotting out of the desert had a little sniff of my golf ball then proceeded to drop a deuce right on top of my golf ball.
We have a fox who thinks it's perfectly fine to steal your ball after you have hit  the fairway on this phone booth tight tree lined spectacle they call a golf course.  Cute little bugger but pain in the butt.  lol

I will never forget I'm playing with my ex and she hits a nice 2nd shot on our finishing par 5. The ball is still bouncing down the fairway and from the trees on the left comes a juvie redtail hawk and he proceeds to play with her ball. He would grab it and fly a few feet and drop it, and repeat. We were speechless, esp as we are both bird and wildlife enthusiasts. That really made our day.
The absolute perfection of existence, life, and aesthetic beauty is the work not only of evolution but of a powerful being.

I was playing alone after work one afternoon when I was setting up to hit my approach on hole 9, I heard a thump then a ball bounced off the top of my head and dropped down right onto my ball. The guy behind me literally hit his drive, it took one bounce, skipped off of the top of my head and dropped directly on to my ball. It didn't hurt and I literally almost fell over laughing. I wish someone could have seen it.

On a chubby mga rules officials lap as he was spotting balls for groups on a blind tee shot hole. We didn't even know he was there until we walked up and He laughed and said I have a titleist on my lap. I gotta say that I lucked out since it prevented my ball from going into some nasty wet fescue on that rainy day.

When I first started playing golf, I hit my tee shot on a par 3, & it landed "inside" the golf bag of the players driving off from the green.  He stopped & had to empty his bag for me to find my ball.  Embarrassing, to say the least.

Wedged in the bark on the down range side of a large fir tree stump.
Pushed my drive a little on a dogleg right. Drove past it in the cart probably 3 Times.
Not expecting to find it 3 ft off the ground on the far side of a tree.

My ball has ended up in a tree a few times, once it was in a little tree about a foot off the ground and fortunately managed to advance it.

As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.

In my playing partner's pocket when he picked up my ball.  Incidentally, I was 3up with 6 to go.   :busted_cop:

I bounced an approach shot off a cart path that landed DOWN INSIDE the golf bag of one of the players on the next tee.  Fortunately they found it funny.  Things could have gone the other way.
