Depends on how loud the yell is.  I usually just duck my head and put my arms up over my head.  But if it is a loud yell... I'll dive to the ground.

I got some good advice once. When you hear someone yell fore run next to the flagstick, it is the safest place on the golf course. :-D

Haha. Funny

That's usually what I do when a wasp or hornet starts buzzing around my head.

Ha.  I hadn't thought of this ... but realistically, most fores I hear are as a result of one of my bad shots as well.  I guess I could have added one more answer option.

I go diving into the cart like I'm diving into 2nd base on a steal.

Just kidding, duck...and cover! Just like an atomic bomb is about to blow up down the road.

arm helmet and back turned and hope I take it on the ass if I do wind up getting hit.
Just a reminder...make sure you cover up the base of your skull in the back.  Get hit there just right and you can be instantly dead.

I think it's funny when you hit towards some people and yell fore, and all they do is run from where they were to another spot 10 yards away...they might be running right into the ball for all they know.

I just croutch and cover the brain..

Thanks ... I did not know that.  That's where my "arm helmet" is going to be from now on.

Maybe we should discuss the mechanics of the Arm Helmet.  It would be nice to have a diagram to illustrate, but I'll just have to describe:

I wrap my palm about the back part of my head (covering the base of my skull in the back), and my forearm lays over the top of my head, with my elbow pointing away from my forehead.  Basically, most of the back and top of my head is covered, and then the side of my face down to the shoulder.  This is the proper Arm Helmet technique.

You're welcome.

Look down, cover head with "arm helmet" (best new golf term I've heard in years) and turn my back to the sound.

If it seems real close, I'll also squat down and try to become small.

If you do a double arm-helmet, get down on the ground, tuck the knees into the chest, back of the calves firmly pressed against the hamstrings, and head facing down towards the knees, that is called the Roly Poly.

Man, this is getting technical! I'm going to try this at the range while I have a buddy toss balls at me while yelling fore. (This would make a great 'hidden camera' stunt to capture the looks on other people's faces...)

I squat and cover my head. If there is a tree close, I hide behind it. Although I did have a ball hit a tree and bounce back landing about a yeard from me. There is no where safe when playin golf.

this.

So many people I've played with look up to try and see the incomming high speed projectile.      Not a recommended practice ...

    • Day 20: Played 18 today. Foggy at the beginning. My rangefinder didn’t work!😜 Played OK. My driver is coming along nicely. My long irons, 3W and hybrid need work.
    • Not that drill, this one. Low point control.   
    • Golf is a safe activity until irresponsible golfers get in the equation. My current club caters to visitors, mostly from out of state. The parking lot is full of out of state plates every day. There is supposed to be a 14-day quarantine/travel restrictions but I doubt any of them are following the order.  My club is not enforcing it either. From what I have seen in the last few months, many people came as a group in the same car. No masks. They shared carts and sat next to each other at the bar/patio to hangout. They pulled out the flag and they spit. Eventhough masks are required in the proshop, I have witnessed many who didn’t wear one because they were just going in “for a second”. At my old club, masks and social distancing does not exist. People do whatever they want because they say it is a private club. Large groups congregate at the tee boxes and they hangout on the patio afterwards. Many times I couldn’t even walk thru the patio because there were so many people (and I didn’t want to either). There has been multiple positive cases at my old club, I am surprised there aren’t more sick people there yet. My husband works at a hospital and he treats covid patients. So far, they have zero cases in the department staff because everyone takes covid seriously. Unlike the idiots who think just because they are outdoor playing golf, they don’t have to follow safety protocols. We cannot have nice things because of a few bad apples.
    • Thanks for the input @boogielicious.   I've seen, but not in detail, the COVID drills,  I'll take a closer look at them.  You also mentioned the "Towel Drill", is this what you are referring to? It was posted by @mvmac a few years back on TST.
