Yeah, my 6 yr old boy saw that ... I told him, "it happens. When I was young, I'd lose my temper. But remember, like you tell me, you can only do your best. But sometimes it's not as good as you think it should be. You expect more, and that is what happens sometimes."

My boy said, "I bet he forgot to eat breakfast this morning..."

Nothing like a good old fashioned flare up on the golf course.

Unless it's herpes.

In all seriousness that move could have really hurt him or a bystander.  You can see the clubhead piece (read: piercing steel arrow at high velocity) rocket off to the right.  A very dangerous way to express anger.  What happened to the old fashioned (and controlled) snap over the leg?

This has happened before and people have died from it.

This.

A guy I was playing with a few years ago did that with his driver on the tee and the head flew right at the rest of us standing to the side. We literally had to dive out of the way. I never played with him again.

I can't imagine just breaking or spiking my club like that. Of course that's because I don't have the money to just replace my clubs whenever I want, and I'm sure he doesn't even pay for his clubs to begin with. This also makes people think it's ok to act out in this manner, not that people really need a reason but they can use it as an excuse "hey, even the pro's do it!".

For the record players and caddies were standing to his back right and the caddie retrieved the head portion of his club after what seemed like just a few steps.  This was very close to being a serious issue.

Watch the video, when it pans out and shows the sky view of Charl walking you can see how close everyone was standing to him.

Imagine if Tiger would've done this! Lol

The "deeply religious" players like Bubba, Zach J. and Schwartzel tend to be a bit like this at times.

They are the grimmest and dullest of personalities.

But in their press conferences they go back into charade mode.

Looked like it was a good 5-7 yards in front of him. Not excusing him or saying it can't be dangerous. But if you're going to throw/break a club, that was probably the best direct to do it.

Watch the video and tell me the clubhead part of the shaft didn't ROCKET directly to his right.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?
    • Share a Fact from Your Job
      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
