I honestly think keying a car is one of the most cowardice acts a man can do.  Maybe when you decide you have a pair you'll stop doing cowardly things, perhaps.

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 g

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.

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.

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.

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.

    • Calkins: Bryson DeChambeau is unvaccinated, unrepentant — and delusional - Memphis Local, Sports, Business & Food News | Daily Memphian Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? Then why is it, when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine, he sounds like such a dummy?  Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? That’s his schtick, isn’t it? He studied physics at SMU. His nickname is the “Mad Scientist.”  He can talk endlessly about training his brain to find the proper balance between the “parasympathetic and sympathetic states.” Turns out that’s bunk. DeChambeau is a dummy. Indeed, he is the worst kind of dummy, the kind that likes to pretend he is smart. You know the type, don’t you?
    • I don't know if it can be repaired and if it's even worth repairing. That said, the metal in the dented area has been severely stretched so it will need to be shrunk to get it back. I think you're on the right track with heat and cold but I see a couple of potential issues. First, I'm not certain a heat gun will heat a small enough area and, second, it actually needs to "bubble" out a bit in the opposite direction of the dent - if that makes sense. I think you can get it to come back some but I don't think it'll "pop" back with the rounded shape it should have. Good luck and please let us know how it goes.
    • Hi Everyone, I haven't responded in a while because I started taking lessons and I wanted to see how they pan out.  I've improved greatly, though I've only been using my pitching wedge and 7 iron so far.  I've used both my blades with the stiff shafts and my "game improvement" irons with regular shafts. and the flight trajectory and distance is the same.   I just thought I'd give an update since I haven't replied in a little while.  Thanks.
