Cart girl came around a hill cutting the fairway next to us and in between the trees. I think she saw everyone about 10 to 20 yards behind. I never saw or heard her to my right I was just 5 feet out of bounds second shot. Line drive with a 4 iron from under the tree. Went in the cart right behind her and missed her head, then hit inside the front window and out the other side. When she ducked I thought I hit her. I was shaking so bad after that I could not hold my club. She just keep apologizing, I think she saw how big my eyes got.

I have never hit anyone and hope I never do that had to be the closest and could have been the worse, I laid into that shot.

Par 4 - 340 yards.

A beautiful fade off the tee to land about 60 yards out (I had the wind with me). From 100 yards in to the green there is no hazards at all, just lots of green and space.

Step on and maybe I was thinking too much of a birdie chance and didn't fully commit to my pitch and fatted it - the ball went about 20 yards or something.

Came out with a 5 after my 3rd shot got up on the dancefloor, but missed the par save putt.

The worst part of hitting a bad shot I always feel is if you do it on your final hole.

I'm 3 over through 17. Sitting in the middle of the fairway on 18, an uphill par 5 and a definite birdie opportunity. Jack a 3-wood OB left.....and when I say left, I mean 70 yards if it was an inch! I have absolutely NO IDEA where that particular swing came from. Lipped out the bogey save for a nice finishing double. I'm an idiot.

Par three hit behind the ball left it  way short, pulled out a 58* wedge and blast it high and long. The rough behind the green was really thick took an easy swing twice before I got it on the green, 2 putts so the card had a 6, bummer!

That was my one blow out hole this weekend.

This was my second round in the last month and my worst shot this week was simply a mismanaged wedge shot.

Situation : 14th hole, par 5, at River Forest - After two well played shots, I only had 70 yards to the hole for my approach. The pin was back, left on the green.

Mental process : With only 70 yards, I wanted to go pin seeking. My lob wedge is 60 yard average, my gap wedge is 80 yard average.

The shot : I hit the gap wedge over the green into an absolutely terrible lie and ended up with a double bogey, my only double of the day.

The Mistake : I should have hit the lob wedge and settled for a 20-30 foot putt for birdie.

140 yards out, I bladed my wedge, flew the green and went out of bounds on the 9th hole when I was only 2 over. It was a sad double-bogey. And then I ended up doing the same thing half way through the next 9. I missed some strokes this weekend.

Sounds similar to my last round. Driver OB on a hole. Retee. Hit driver so low on the face almost blocked by a tree and sea grass from getting to the fairway. Next shot I don't know the distance so I am just trying to layup before the green. Pulled 6-iron and hit kind of a knock down shot and the contact was so pure. About 105 away from the hole now. Pull a gap wedge. Proceed to thin said gap wedge into the pond in front of me while a group trying to let me play through watched. It was a miserable hole that day.

Yesterday played a really nice course down in Md for the 1st time w/a good friend. "The Woodlands" Par 4 #18..... Very short hole only played 317yds yesterday from the whites....Tee shot is up hill slightly then back down and funnels into the green..... Use a 3W off the tee and leaves me a 2nd shot of 118yds left center of fairway (sitting beautiful) use my PW looking to place it center of green with the flag dead middle, and what do I do? Freakin chunk it and the ball goes maybe 20yds lol

Played Links at Galloway in Memphis last weekend.  Fun course.

Anyway, one of the par 4s was about 280 yards with a slight dog-leg over a pond.  Green well-protected by the water.  Naturally, one would throw it up there with a 7 and have a reasonable approach shot over the water.  Well, I'm 21 and definitely not that mature in the head so I reach back with my driver, stick it into a green-side bunker, chip on (poorly) and 3 putt while watching my smarter mates sink birdie and par putts. :-X

My worst shot of the week was a drive shot that I skulled in which the ball only went approximately 50 yards. Just wasn't focused on that shot.

Yesterday in match play. Mid round, just missed birdie and pared the #1 par 4 beast hole. Then relaxed mentally on the shortest drivable par 4 and drove my ball into the box making a corn row trench "U" shape 6" long. :- Luckily it peeled out right 35 yards to where I could touch it from the fescue rough with a 5. Played in for a 5.

I am not sure what was worse:

75 yard shot which is about a perfect distance for a full 60 degree wedge for me. Yanked it 10 yards left, off the green into a hazard. Ended up carding a double bogey 6 after being in near perfect position off the tee. It was my first hole of league play and it pissed me off enough that I ended playing the rest of the 9 at 3 under.

Drunk female bartender driving around on a cart with her drunk guy friend where we 'caught' her in the act of finishing off her friend right next to the green of the par 5 we were playing. She was NOT a porn star in the making.

So I sliced one on my second shot of a straight 380 yard par 4 with a tree line on the right with a fairway on the other side of the trees. Well I went through an oak tree thought it had knocked it straight down turned out to be leaves falling and after looking for a few minutes I see a pine tree about 40 yards down with what just cant possibly be my ball in it. It was about 3 feet up in the tree resting ever so gently on a seemingly flawless ball catching limb. I was about 15 short of the green and the ball was on the opposite side so I decide to take a hack at it left handed and just try to get it out in the open. With a mighty hack I take the branch out from underneath of it and the ball falls straight to the ground. I take another left handed swing and punch it out to about pin high. After rolling off the green with my approach I hit a little chip to within about a foot and tap it in for a crowd pleasing triple. Not sure which shot was worse the one that ended up in the tree or my first attempt to get it out.

Thinned a 3 wood off the tee into a drainage culvert (OB).    Grrrrrrrrrr :doh:

I like this thread better than the Best Shot of The Week ... gives us space to rant and vent frustrations.

Snap hooked a drive into a pond on the right. Dropped. Snap hooked a 3 wood into the same pond on the right. It was glorious.

Been working on trying to hit higher trajectory tee shots to gain extra distance.  Instead I topped the ball for a 25 yard drive.  Failed to get it past the ladies tee box. :loco:

/fortunately I was playing alone, with no one there to witness my shame.
