I just started playing a few months ago.  Tonight was a VERY odd and a bit scary ha.  I was teeing off and a bear came out of the woods about 90 yards from me.  What made this even more insane for me was that I am 36 and I have never seen a bear in my life until tonight!  What about you ?  What are some of your odd experiences?  Anyone ever get hit by lightning etc

I've been chased by geese and hit strange shots that have even gone backwards due to obstacles. Haha. This happened when my friend was playing a round. The dog jumped a 5 foot fence... [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8eJDNRKiTM[/VIDEO]

Ones played with our man's competition in Belgium at the Five Nations golfclub.

They placed a flag in the bunker

Not my experience, but my gf was playing golf last weekend with her mates and they found some guy nude sunbathing and later on found him beating off in the trees...

On a fairway in Virginia (BRGC) had a red fox lurking in the OB area. I was told later they snatch food from carts.

On the first tee a couple of years ago, about ready to tee off when we hear a bunch of shouting...... above us.  A hot air balloon is coming right at us.  Landed right on the box!  Pilot apologized profusely.  Seems that that was the only option he had at the time having somehow misjudged his altitude and was unable to get back up in time to avoid other obstructions.

I play a course that is bordered by a county park which is bordered by a local college....... It was early fall and we here on the 7th hole and we seen a bunch of clothes piled on the ground next to bushes. As we turned a corner about 15-20 college chicks and guys came streaking our of the bushes screaming like crazy.... Was the strangest but funniest thing I ever saw. I try to play that course every fall! :)

I played a few weeks ago on a very nice course that is in the woods. On about the 7th hole, there was a snapping turtle walking across the fairway. He was probably a foot and a half long. Walked on down and into the woods. The strange part was that this hole was elevated and there was no water with at least 500 yards of the spot he was at, so I'm not sure where he was coming from or going to.

I had seen several times young, very attractive females out there with tiny volleyball shorts on.... off topic, but your comment made me think of them.

I regularly golf next to the Air Force base I'm stationed and last fall I saw an aircraft that I never knew existed, at the time at least. I watched a NASA Super Guppy come in and land and then take off about an hour or so later.

    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
