I reckon a main difference between a 20 handicap and a 15 handicap could be the number of melt-down holes. Think about your previous few rounds and try to figure out what caused the melt-downs. Is there a pattern?   For example, I naturally draw the ball on a course where most of the OBs are on the left. Occasionally I hit a hook off the tee which, if done on one of these holes, causes a card-wrecker. I worked like crazy to reduce those hooks and my scores are now much...
My 60deg low bounce only comes out when it's off a fairway lie near the green and I have a hazard to get over but on those occasions I'm glad I have it.   If there's no hazards to get over then it's a variable bump and run.   Any sort of fluffy lie or rough to content with and it's normally the SW, since the high bounce generally results in more consistent contact.
I always chuckle at the thought of an irate golfer chasing a giant rodent down a fairway with a pitching wedge shouting, "give me back my ProV1 you little bastard!"
  There's a small course in Bristish Columbia called Marmot Ridge where the local rule used to be that you got a free drop if a marmot steals your ball. Happens quite a lot apparently but it would make a great excuse.
Ah yes, the unmistakable sound of golf ball hitting wood. That reminds me of a time I saw a playing partner have to duck as it bounced straight back at his face.
An easy solution would be for me to aim directly at the guy in question which would mean I'm assured to miss.
Ah, now that's a better idea. Or you could just "accidently" step on his ball as you walk off, heavily.
You're right of course but we were only 14 when my friend did it and it was a lone player so no chance of hitting innocent parties. I wouldn't dream of acting in such a fashion now that I'm a responsibly 30 year old...
Another random thought; does anyone else get nervous when watching the crowds lining the tee box as a tour pro is getting ready to drive? I know these guys are pros but a shank off the toe isn't completely unheard of for them, right? I mean, one really ugly swing and someone is digging a golf ball out of their head.
I once had to apologise to about 30 people stood on the first tee after nearly wiping them out once.   I was playing down the 18th par 5 of my local course where the 1st tee is only about 30 yards from the 18th green to one side. I was hitting my second shot with a hybrid into the sun and hit a great feeling shot that went straight at the green and then disappeared into the glare. Unfortunately it must have been turning over because I then catch sight of it hurtling...
