I was going through a real weird period a few years ago. I was swinging kind of like Annika and Duval where they look ahead of the ball during impact. This occurred as a result of practicing without a ball, actually. I was making tons of practice swings at home thinking I was practicing but I really just developed this weird habit.
Sometimes I did hit it great, but I would occasionally shank it as I looked ahead and spun out of the shot. So for a couple months my game was just horrid.
Fast forward to one round where I was walking 9-holes. It was probably a weekend. I was coming up the 2nd hole and during a lay-up on a Par-5 I hit a cold shank. Okay, that's not the bad shot. Just saying...the round was kind of crap.
So eventually I make it to #6 which is a Par-3. I tee up a 6-iron and flush it. Beautiful tight little drawn to a center pin. Couldn't see exactly what happened but I get up there and it's in the cup. Fantastic...my first (and only) hole in one.
So I go to the next hole, #7, a par-5. Can't remember what happened. Who even cares, right?
Anyhow, I catch up to a guy who's practicing and he lets me through so we're both standing on #8 tee which is another Par-3. He asks how I'm hitting them and of course I tell him about my hole-in-one. He congratulates me and I tee one up.
I swing and BOOM...a cold shank into the trees. Okay...whatever...tee it up again and redeem yourself cowboy...
...so I tee another up and BOOM...another cold shank into the trees.
I can't imagine what that guy probably thought. If that's not the most f'd up 9-holes I've ever played I don't know what is.

The funniest shot was a hole with water on the left (lake oconee) and there was a guy in a boat. I hit a hook into the lake in his direction and everyone in my group yelled “fore in the boat”

Doing the same thing on the same hole the following summer this group comes to the tee a member and his 3 guests... they all place their bets and the member (who had a mid to high 6 figure income) declines to bet... so I hit a good shot to maybe 6 or 8 feet one of the three guests beats me the other 2 don't... so the member gets up and .. you guessed it... knocks one in the hole.... talk about embarrassed... they were still breaking his balls at dinner 3 or 4 hours later, telling anyone that would listen how cheap he was.. he never declined to bet again as long as I worked there anyway.....
