Best club throwing, breaking, or angry outbursts you have seen or done - Page 6

post #91 of 116

About 5 years ago in a high school match when I was a senior this kid I was playing with 3 putted 3 holes in a row and then proceeded to hit his putter for every single shot for the rest of the round.  He had 7 holes remaining when this happened.

Now that's strong. 

 

How much distance did he get with the putter off the tee? I'll have to admit that I've thought about it.

Those are the days when you stop pitching and just try little bump and run shots with a 7 iron...

There's a video of Jamie Sadlowski hitting a putter 300 yards off the deck.

I hate to admit it, but this is me about 15 years ago at Singing Hills GC in San Diego, CA (now Sycaun Resort). I was golfing with my Uncle and Dad and something irked me on my backswing and I went nuts. For some reason my father was filming me at the time. I am not proud of this moment and have never lost my temper since. I did par the hole though LOL

I only have one question: are you naturally left-handed?

I just started playing. I had a day were absolutely nothing went right and I had a talk with my self that went like that. I stopped trying so hard and had a great rest of the round.

That sandwedge is never going back in my bag though.

Yeah, I've heard that. I've even tried to convince myself of that. I've never agreed. Actually, I usually get more angry after thinking this very thought.

Once played a round with my then boss..came to a long (180 yards) par 3 with a large pond in between the tee and the green.. He hit first putting the ball ,it appeared, into the pond.... His iron was then flung into the air after the ball and that went into the lake ... My shot landed safely on the green ...When I walked to the green ... to the other side of the pond..I found a ball on the edge.... asked what he had played...Titleist Prov.2.... told him that I found his ball and his club.... the club was stuck in the mud in the middle of the lake.... The ball cost a pound   ( second hand ... cheap skate)   the lost club 150 pounds .... I could not stop laughing :dance:

I would say this is the best I've seen.

That is pretty funny! Usually when I play bad I'm just relieved it's over and draw a line under it as a bad day! I've never once thrown a club or lashed out, I guess I just kinda sulk instead.

My clubs cost me too much to damage them.  If I had one of those $9 Kmart drivers that sound like someone is hitting a ball with a fence post though who knows what I might do.

I'm actually doing a lot better with my own temper tantrums this year. My club throw has been down-graded into a light toss. My swearing has generally been in a conversational tone and I haven't thrown any balls into hazards in quite a while.

Yeah....it's the club's fault ;-)

My best one was playing league golf match. One of the guys hit a bad shot and went off. He was hitting trees, the ground, etc. when his partner just looked at him and said "You are not good enough to get that mad". I thought about it and he is right. When you play nine holes a golf a week, don't practice and only have a 6 month season you should not be that mad about a bad shot. I use that saying to myself when I hit a bad shot and my temper starts to rise.

I said it earlier, but ... that particular line is like dumping gasoline on the fire. Great if that works for you, but it would be exactly the wrong thing to say to me.

Best one I think I ever saw was this year, back early summer.  One of our members who almost never plays, except to hit balls and watch himself hit in front of a mirror.  He does push-ups on the range, triceps dips using the only bench at the range and is just a unperson-able guy.  And he dresses and acts like he should be a pro.  I've seen him on the range and he looks like he has a decent swing.

 

So I was going out on the course and I caught up to him and another member on the 2nd hole.  As we played I don't think he spoke at all and he barely acknowledged if you said nice shot to him.  His on course swing was nothing like his practice range swing and he was hitting all over the place.  

 

So...we get to the 8th hole, which is a 320 yard par 4 dogleg left, houses and OB right. He hits his first ball dead left pull into the trees about 50 yards off the tee.  He slams his club in ground and definitely used some nice language, which whatever.  So he re-tees and hits it OB right, another verbal outburst, drops another ball and keeps it in play edge of right Fairway.  Doesn't even bothers to look for first ball and he hits his next shot, shanks it right off the roof of a house and it rolls onto the back deck of the house.

 

Next thing is he swears really loud.  Takes his club and swings and hits his bag breaking one of the stand legs.  Bag falls over, of course and then he kicks the bag.  Realizes that he broke one of the legs, so he chucks bag and clubs over the sand trap which he was standing beside.  He walks over gets his bag, picks it up and clubs are hanging out, gets pissed again, throws the bag to the other side of the fairway.  Picks up the bag, throws it over his shoulder and walks in.

 

Not sure if I have ever seen that kind of an explosion before.  So we get done with 9 and I go into the pro shop and not only did he break his bag, apparently when he either swung and hit the bag with his club or when he kicked it, he broke his driver.  

 

Not a good hole for that guy.

 

His new nickname is now Postal.
