Vehicle damage

Recently, an errant golf ball (slice) shattered the back window of my Jeep. The golfer left his business card. His homeowner insurance covered it in full. That's why we have homeowners insurance.

Good to see a golfer owning up to his responsibility having hit an errant shot. Sadly, not all golfers are willing to do so.

Yes really...this was originally posted in Rules of Golf, or whatever that part of the forum is called.  I didn't think that was the proper place for this post.  Nothing wrong with it, just wrong section of the forum.

what were the complete circumstances of the incident? Was you car in your driveway which is adjacent to the course? were you passing the course on the highway and struck? I often wonder what the course of action is if you're driving past a course with fairways parallel to the highway and a ball gets to the road and strikes a car?...

I park very far away......in a distant corner of the lot where nothing can hit it..........................no stray shot can hit my car.

Can U blame me?  The car isn't anything great, but I refuse to park where some diKKweed can possibly hit a slice into my ride.

I see you are one of those guys who has a car so fancy that you find it necessary to use two parking spots when everyone else requires one .  Like you, I park in a spot that is least likely to get hit by a ball.

diKKweed?

I doubt anybody that's hit a car on a GC lot or road intentionally did it.

I'm surprised GC's don't do more to protect patron cars in their lots when those lots are close to tee areas or along the lines of fairways.

Fore Left    2

I had someone back into my car in the parking lot of a golf course  (not the same thing I know)   with a decent sized pick-up-truck with a trailer-hitch on it based on what the top of my hood looked like.

Someone saw the guy,  watched him take off,  and wrote the License plate #,  make/model/color etc.

I called the police  (because it was certainly significant damage)  only to find out that since the guy who actually saw it didn't leave any contact info for HIM,  to confirm his "Story"  the police wouldn't dispatch their "Hit-and-skip" team for it.....

Very nice....  I was told there basically was "No witness"

It's nice to see that someone would own up to their accident.

Can't say I've been to a course where the parking lot was close enough to any part of the course where this could happen. Typically the tee's are heading away from the backside of the clubhouse. One has the 9th green of a par 3 course somewhat near the back edge of the lot, within 40 yds or so. But it's a 100y hole so hard to get squirrely there. The juniors and noobs that frequent that course usually can't hit it to the green and it's a lofty wedge shot for anyone out there practicing.

When someone does this, I'm always tempted to park across the line immediately next to their "precious" car.

I refrain because if they drove off and left my car sitting alone like that, I'd be embarrassed if anyone thought I was obnoxious enough to park like that.

After taking a peek around to make sure no one else is looking, I like to kick a nice dent in the door when I see someone taking up two spaces.  It's the little things you do that make life fun.

I live in NYC where finding parking can drive any person insane so if someone takes up two spots I make sure I go back to key the car after I find a parking spot (if its basically the direction I want to go).

...anywayzzz this year I hit a drive way left and it curved around a tree and I assume onto the road (I couldnt see) and hit a car because I heard the thud but none of the cars driving by turned onto the golf course so I assume they didnt care.

You are indeed fortunate.  Lots of folks would have just left your insurance to fix damage.  Seems as if personal responsibility is in somewhat short supply in our population these days.

My favorite course of action when someone takes up two parking spots is to back into a "spot" right next to them so my passenger's door is so close that they can't possibly open the driver's side door far enough to get into the car.  I only key a car when someone jacks the parking spot I am patiently waiting on.

    • There are plenty of threads here about putting.    3 keys to better putting If you want to work on the starting line, buy a metal yard stick with a hole on one end and practice putting the ball down the yard stick.   
    • Honestly, I feel like I'm hitting a little of everything.  When at the range off mats, I tend to graze the bottom which I can tell from the feedback of the rubber tee's.  When on the course/grass, I tend to top the ball.  I have noticed my heel shots as the ball direction is unmistakable.  Off to the left, sharp and extremely short and low.  I hit far better shots with my Hybrids than almost any club.  Then my wedges, then irons.  Driver, the least well.  I think I'm trying too many setup and swing techniques almost trying too many corrections.  I over pivot a bit and struggle with stable feet tending to come up on the ball of my left foot.  I played baseball for nearly 14 years so I'm trying to keep from feeling like I'm stepping (or want to step). So, my next real question... is it worth it to try and replace the shafts if the manufacturer ignores me?  I never really hit the GBB as I'd just bought it.  The XR16 definitely felt the best, went the longest and gave me the most confidence.  The Ping G SFT, I also didn't hit more than a few times but I enjoyed it.  I'll try and post some pics of the leftovers and driver murder scene.  "Driver-homicide" is going to be my new nickname.   Thanks Lihu!  
    • Hello guys I've always struggle on short putts and it is why I'm here. Well, when I'm witha shot putt, I realized that my backswing is not Ok, I do not feel that the line stays correct, it seens that my hand shake. There is something that I can do? Change my putting grip?   Thanks
    • Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  
    • I had a buddy film a few drives during my round yesterday.  I am still diving down towards the ball with my head.  No idea why this is still happening, but it does not feel as if it is happening while I am swinging.  Plane seems a little better, but still very erratic. I got the first one off the toe. Started right and stayed right.  The second one was better contact but pulled left.
