Only a month into golf, this is definitely the craziest/luckiest thing I've ever seen in golf. What's yours?
Hit another guy's ball w/mine mid-flight at the range last night

Trying to get a pitch up through a big "V" in a tree to land on the green. The tree was right next to the cart path, and my ball was behind the tree, so that the tree separated me from the green. I had enough room to pull the shot off though because it was just one giant V with no misc. branches/leaves until you got up like 80 feet.
I set up to hit the shot, make it up to the V... my ball never came back down. I hit it high and short and it landed in the "V" which was either hollow, had a hole, or something... and my ball was stuck up there and never came down!
Everyone was cracking up pretty bad at that one and we all had a beer and took a break to laugh it off because no one was behind us.
The very first time I played golf (I was probably 11 or so) my dad entered me in some kid's tournament on the local par three. I had no idea what I was doing out there but I had played baseball pretty much my whole life so I at least knew how to make decent contact. I came to a long par three (170 yards or so) and I hit my driver as hard as I could and hit a wicked slice into the woods. The ball hit the top of a tree trunk about 70 yards from the hole and bounced hard left onto the green within three feet of the hole. I won a prize for closest to the pin. Ha, those were the days...
I tee'd up at a course one day where the tee box was across the street from the fairway. It was a slow country road so hitting cars wasn't really a problem. What was a problem, was my ball flying right off the tee, and smacking a power line that ran perpendicular to me along the road. The ball hit the powerline and shot straight down onto the asphalt, bouncing away into the woods. Left a big black mark on the ball and the power line bounced for a little bit after that, but no harm just some laughs about never being able to do that ever again!
That is amazing......I've been playing 20yrs.......and I don't think I can top that story. LOL
My old home course had a "Road Hole"...............A road tightly hugged the entire left side of the hole and I hit a low slice that should have landed in a field OB across the street, but the ball perfectly struck a telephone pole and the ball kicked back into the fairway. LOL I still think your story is better!
When I first thought I was going to try out golf about 6-7 years ago, I was at the range for the first time and did this exact same thing. I was so mortified that I never went back...to any range, until now.
I punched a shot into a tree so hard it wound up about 50 yards behind me on the opposite side of the fairway. Six inches to the right and I'm probably putting for a birdie.
