My guess is that he broke maybe $300 at most market value of irons.   He was venting and having fun at the same time.  If he was totally out of control he would not be able to shake hands and joke with people much less pick and choose clubs to break.   He's probably blown $300 before and not had nearly as much fun.   Nothing out of control about what he was doing.
If I was the judge at sentencing, after paying restitution I'd sentence him to a year of golf every weekend.   He thinks his ex-girlfriend frustrated him....stand by for the ultimate in frustration.   He'll likely commit suicide in a month of golf with his coping skills.   That is if he doesn't get off with the defense that he had a handicap flag on his truck.   I'd say that I see old guys driving right up to the green everyday with those flags so I figured it would be...
I tend toward sandbagger but there are things that can explain it.   I thought a guy at one of our events was a sandbagger.   He came in with an index of about 6.   He shot par to 2 over for the entire event.   Guys obviously began to question it.   I then got curious and dug into his posted scores.   He practices on really hard courses from the tips.....75/145 type courses.   Even when accounting for the course difficulty his 82 is about a 5-6 differential.   Pretty easy...
I'd start talking about dudes in such a manner that would really creep him out.   By the end of the round he'd be begging us to talk about chicks.  
This is the first time in my life that I actually read 15 pages of a forum but I've found it interesting.   I'll be honest, I never really considered this device and we actually joked about it at the golf shop but now I am somewhat intrigued.     I like the fact that it shows your average club distance although it may humble those that hit every drive 320yrds. We will all know the truth if you post!   We all think we hit a certain club a certain distance but solid...
I can tell you all about courses an hour north at Lafayette but I've haven't played Indy.  I've heard positive reviews from those that have played The Fort and I've heard mixed reviews about Purgatory.   I've also heard good reviews about the Trophy Club(Lebanon) and The Golf Club of Indiana but they are just north of Indy.
I've played dozens of different private clubs as a guest.   Without exception every member provided a quick rundown of the expectations.  They almost all know that each club is different so there is no universal rule that applies to all.   If he hasn't told you what's up you NEED to ask.   You simply explain that different clubs have different expectations and seek clarification for his club.   99.9% of members that invite you expect to pick up the full tab unless you have...
LOL  Yes it is.  Not my biggest, but one of my most memorable.   It's funny how I find a lot of similarities between deer hunting and golf.   I'm a die hard bow hunter(like the purist golfer) but there is always a time and a place to break out the big gun and have fun......kinda like relaxed rules.  
Agreed that no one is born pro.  MLB players grew up with alum bats and likely tee-ball or slow pitch.  It's a transition to the pro ranks.   No reason golf can't have a similar transition as far as different rules. The rules are complicated.  Period.   I don't mind them being penal.   They should be.   None of us like stroke and distance but that's part of.   The problem is that there are times when you can't find a ball(lost) that you didn't think was in trouble so your...
I think the improved lie was summed up perfectly today on MD.   Pros never hit out footprints in bunkers.   They are all raked to perfection.  Not true of places in the recreational world.   It is odd that we are supposed to play by the exact same rules as pros yet we don't get the same course conditions.     I like the idea and personally I think it should be applied to ALL amateurs.   Even in tournaments and for handicaps.   We are not pros.  Period.  Obviously tweek...
