Saw this on the 9th tee at a local muni. It wasn’t worth rescuing. 😜 Not mine BTW.

I can’t disagree more. Bad putting days suck, but bad ballstriking days are so much worse.

I threw an Odyssey 2 ball putter up in the air and it got stuck about 30 feet up in a tree, no branches to climb to get it. Major storm came through the next day, must have knocked it loose, someone got themself a two timing betraying no good disappointment to her dad putter

I only ever broke one club and it wasn't intended or in anger.  I used to carry this seven iron I had found on a course around the farm with me and every now and again take practice swings to keep my game in shape.  Unfortunately I decided to use that as a pole to sit on and it worked for quite a while.  Unfortunately, one day, I put too much pressure on it and had it angled wrong.  The shaft snapped in the middle and if memory serves I fell backwards.  I keep that club as a paperweight, but more as a reminder not to do stupid things

I have picked up on a course the business end of an Odyssey putter and a Cleveland wedge in the past. Re-shafted both and gave them to the grandkids.

I always thought it might be fun to stick a very old club in the bag. Then, as a joke during a round, pull it out, have a tantrum, and break it against a tree or toss it into a pond. So far I have successfully resisted proceeding with this plan.

    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
    • Day 24: putting practice at home 
    • And yet we both made par.  Maybe drive for dough isn't accurate after all  Definitely had some helping wind on mind, it was blowing 15-20mph all day. Yours looks like a fun hole too. Looks like a couple different ways it can be played.
