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

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