Weird things that happen on your round... - Page 4

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

It was on the way home from a round, out of nowhere lightning struck the tree next to our car. One of the loudest things that I have ever heard, a big tree branch fell and landed like 5 feet from our car.

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

100 yards to the flag...
i thin one really good and ends up behind the green on the back of a hill near the edge of the woods...
i go back to hit my ball and i hear something really big walking thru the woods behind me... i turn to take a look but the woods were pretty thick and i couldnt see anything... all i can hear is heavy slow crunching leaves...
needless to say i hit my ball as fast as i could... no practice swings or anything... just to get it on the green an put it in the hole away from the sasquatch that was stalking me... hahaha

Nothing really crazy. I've seen a few deers that cross the fairway. It's pretty cool.

Goose-Mooning. By the goose.

When we first joined our club, there was a goose on the eighth hole, that when it saw our friend, stuck it's head in the water and it's butt in his direction, until we were about 100 yards away.

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

I swear this is true.

My friend and I were at a muni course and a single joined us. Around the 12th hole we look up and can see someone on the side of the fairway. As we get closer, we see that it's a NAKED CHICK, and she's reaching down and swatting at her legs. We play our shots and as we get closer, we can tell she's either nuts or on drugs. The guy we're with goes over and checks on her. After talking to her a bit, she gets in his cart and he starts to drive back toward the clubhouse. But after a few feet he stops, she gets out, and then heads over to a hole in the fence and leaves the course. He then comes over and says that she is out of her mind and thought that she was in the middle of some brambles (she wasn't) and couldn't get out. He offered to take her someplace safe but she decided she was OK on her own. We reported it to a marshal but I don't know what became of her. (By the way, she was skinny but not much to look at!)

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

last week i got paired up with the strangest guy...
i was on the putting green waiting for my teetime and he rolls up in his cart with 2 bags... i thought his partner was still on the range... we check in with the starter and he says he's alone... the starter asked if he had someone coming with and the guy asked why... because of 2 bags... the guy says theyre his and that he needs all the clubs to play... well we get out on the course and the guy isnt too talkative except to himself... he wasnt too bad of a player but he was weird and entertaining to watch... he would pull 5 clubs at a time and swing each one of them talking to himself the whole time... he had 3 putters... a belly putter... long putter... and a regular one... strange

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

a week ago during one round i only hit four fairways..

1) duffed the ball off of the tee and the fairway happened to be close in, so that's one.
2) ball caught the trunk of a tree in the rough and landed in the fairway, that's two.
3) refer to #1
4) refer to #2 but was a small tree branch

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

I guess technically he didn't exceed the legal amount of clubs in the bag if he had two bags lol

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

This didnt happen to me per sea, but a friend i was playing with over thw weekend had his drive into the left rough picked up by a squirel. It actually nibbled on it for close to a minute, and it then dropped the ball some 5 or 6 feet away from where it originally lied.

This might be a little OT, but what would be the ruling on that? LOL. He just walked up to the ball, replaced it and played on. But im interested if there is an actual rule for animal interference.

i think it was a legal setup cuz he was riding with his imaginary friend that he talked to all round... i still question the 3 putters tho... maybe one was for his imaginary golfing dog... hahaha

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

I was playing on a local course with some friends, we had just finished the one hole and it was about 150 yards to the next tee, my one friend then says "im going to hit this in the bin next to the tee", takes out a random iron from his bag, drops his ball, gives it a wack, straight into the bin 150 yards away! We were laughing so hard, bearing in mind this bin was about 1 foot high and 1 foot square it was pretty impressive. He then proceeded to lose 4 balls on that hole, demonstrating just how flukey that shot really was!!

I have also played in wind so hard that i hit a shot with a wedge that wnet about 50 yards forwards to the top of its flight, and then came backwards 30 yards to land 20 yards in front of me!! Crazy stuff!!

Rule 18-1 says if the ball is moved by an outside agency it must be replaced at no penalty.

Rule 4-4 a. just says no more than 14 clubs, not 14 per bag

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

2 things I recall in my life.

1 - Was playing with a guy who ripped a tee shot right down the center and his tee flew straight up bounced off his driver head in his follow through and landed perfectly right back in the pocket he pulled it out of. He was so confused as to why we were laughing so hard after he hit such a dead perfect shot. From that moment on we had a new definition for a perfect tee shot. Needless to say I haven't seen a perfect shot in 20 years since this happened.

2 - During a high school tournament, an opponent dunked his approach shot on a par 5 straight into the pond in front of the greeen. Dead eye, splash right in the center of the pond. As he was putting his club back in his bag, note about a 20-25 second lag....his ball inexplicably shot back out of the pond and landed on the green. After discussing with the officials. No explanation, no penalty, he made par. We later learned there used to be a fountain in the pond and the maintenance crew was trying to get it up and running that morning. The ball must have landed on the fountain head when they were trying to turn it on.

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

this was probably 2 years ago. i was about a 20 something handicap at the time. 1 round i hit a tree on every par 5 and half of the par 4s. but nature was w/ me, the ball would kick back out and on the fairway. i almost over hit one hole but was saved by an overhanging branch, which dropped the ball 3 ft from the cup. i ended up shooting +19. that was the weirdest round of golf ever in my life.

Re: Weird things that happen on your round...

I found my ball inside the red line, but not in the water. I went to play the shot, upon taking my stance my legs and butt are leaning into thistle. After I played the shot I was walking back to my bag and started feeling stings all over my back, stomach and legs. I looked down and was COVERED in ants. 50 to 100 maybe.

Took a while to shake them all off and regain my head for the next shot.
