Certainly when you've got one, adverse things happen. Had the disease years ago. Playing Longmeadow CC in western Massachusetts many years ago. The first hole has evergreen bushes on left side and runs along a relatively busy road. Unfortunately about 100 yds up the fairway there was one bush that had died and was recently removed leaving a three foot gap on the bushes. Running late I arrived at the tee as my group had already teed off. I put the peg in the ground, took a mighty swing and snap hooked on right through the gap in the trees and could see a large windowed dry cleaner type truck get smashed in the window with a plasma -like thud. As he came around to the clubhouse and there was a large spider web smashed window. Asking if he was alright he acknowledged he was. However, his partner was sleeping and according to him he "sh.t himself".
My second memorable snapper was on PGA West. There was a par four (right after the par 3 with water around it if memory serves my correctly). I was playing with a colleague and hooked up with two members. I had a big snap hook that hit a house and there was a tremendous crashing sound. We all went up to investigate and thankfully it wasn't a window. Unfortunately, it hit blue tile roof and some of the tile came crashing down on the patio. The member requested I leave a note with my name and phone number. Knowing that his homeowners would pay for it I took an extra scorecard and proceeded to write a note to satisfy the members. My colleague asked why I left that note and what I had written. I didn't have to leave my name and number. I told him I didn't, I left his. In reality I left a note saying I was sorry.
Sad to say there were many more. Now it rarely happens. Thank goodness!
