Worst shot ever. Or. Drivng range doesn't prepare you for this one.

So I'm on a par 5 today and pretty proud of my drive and take my second shot. Adams 3 wood ( if anyone from Adams is reading) and as I watch my ball headed for the near right side bunker guarding the green, I figure I will have a simple bunker shot onto the green and possible birdie op. Well you have to see the bunker. The bunker is cut out of the side of a nice hill. The far side is about 6 ft high from sand to top. The height to it is all bank, or grass. Well there was a rake propped up leaning on the bank and guess where my ball landed? Right on top of the handle. It looked like a lollipop. After laughing it was decided that if I move the rake and the ball falls into the bunker I should be able to drop somewhere behind the hill, no nearer the hole and take a shot. Well I moved the rake and the ball stayed put. So I had to take the most ridiculous stance and the ball was about chest high. I took a 9 iron and choked down so much that the club was under my arm pit. I though its gonna fly to the left so aim way right. I had to pitch it over the bunker I was in, and not hit into the bunker off to the side. Just a small portion of grass separates the two. Well, needless to say I have never practiced that shot on the range and popped it into the adjacent bunker. Got out, and wound up two putting and for a 6. hehe funny to me

I have plenty of bad shots to choose from but this is my choice. Playing to the island green and missed my tee shot so badly that I hit it across another fairway and into a pond 270 yards away and about 170 yards off line.

To quote the PureStrike commercials, "HOLY MOSES!!":bugout: It's rare to see someone generate that much distance with a shank! 270 yarder, that's gotta be a record of some sort...:beer:

I don't know, try this one out. 

 

Short par 3. I hit the ball with the back of the hosel, think about that for a second. The ball bounces off the tee, hits the ground and then bounces up and hits me. 

 

So not only did I hit the ball, I had to take a penalty for having the ball hit me. Then I had to play the ball from were it lies on the tee box further away from where I teed it up.
