6 inches from hitting my head. No fore, no acknowledgement from nearby folks, just dumb looks. Didn't hurt, but J. H. C. I go to this range because it's incredibly convenient. Yeah, I can't help but laugh at it. .
Wow, that is impressive. Kinda crazy what type of shots can come from a bad swing. The near 90 degree toe shot is pretty impressive.
I was at the range last week and I went to the right of this one guy. There was this wood plank on the ground that holds the ropes down to mark the area where we can hit. Well I was standing behind the ropes practicing some stuff before stepping up to the ball. He was hitting a driver and clanked a few right against that plank. I am just standing there not wanting to move up to hit the ball. I was thinking, "I am going to take a driver toe shank right in the back"
Ha ha. I thought two things. Some kids threw it at me because kids are kids, but none that I could see. Or there were 3 who looked like beginners in one stall and they had a dumbfounded guilty look to them.
This range is a perfect synopsis of New York City. Smokers, people walking out to get their balls, like 5-10 yards out, hearing metal hitting metal all the time - shafts hitting metal supports, keep your head down repeated over and over, etc... People bending the rules, doing whatever the hell they want.
