Most Embarrassing Moments on the Course?

For me two come to mind.

1: Years ago before I'd ever taken any lessons, playing with friends and a borrowed set of clubs from the 70's.  Something I've fought for years is a tendency to get completely tilted and unreasonably angry (especially unreasonable given my skill level...).  After whiffing twice then skulling 30 yards with like a 8i, getting back in the cart I whacked the tire with the club, not that hard, and snapped the shaft.  I felt horrible since the clubs were actually my friend's grandfathers' old clubs...  (related: this is something I seem to have finally made progress on, I haven't gotten mad on the course in a couple of years beyond maybe a muttered swear word or two)

2: Last round I played actually, was playing extremely well for me since +22 is still my best round ever, and was only like 3 over through 5.  Had a little fringey chip to try and get up and down for par, and decided to play a bump and run.  Grabbed a 6i and hit the ball to exactly the spot I picked, and it rolled about a foot or two more.  Realized I had a PW not a 6i...  Then managed to drag my putter on the next shot and it went another foot, still leaving me about 10 feet. At this point I overcompenste and send it 15 feet the other way and then 3 putt from there for a good old snowman.  This was my standard approach to chipping and putting until a few years ago...  Amazingly I was able to just laugh it off and still wound up with a decent-for-me score of +25.

Was out with a few friends enjoying a friendly round of golf and consuming a few beers. There was a ladies league out at the time quite close to us. My partner really had to releive himself quite badle, and there was no where for him to go. I told him to just stand next to the cart and pee. He thought that would work, so I waited for him to "get it out" and when I was sure he was doing his business, I pulled the cart out of the way for all to see...LOL...Quite the moment...

    • 104 rounds so far for 2020. Not likely to add much to that number as the weather has made a turn for the worse.  Thirty different courses but only four were new to me.  A pre-COVID trip to Reunion, FL, in February, otherwise all the rounds were in the SE section of the Mitten.
    • Day 336 - November 30, 2020 Did some backswing work with MirrorVision after the demo time limit expired. 🙂
    • Name them. Your list below doesn't really do that. It just says "football games" and "weddings" and things. I hadn't gone searching specifically for this before today, but I also haven't heard of any super-spreader events held entirely outdoors. Was the White House event a ‘superspreader’? Experts explain the phenomenon Superspreader events can lead to dozens or hundreds of COVID-19 cases. Experts explain what the biggest risk factors are. Being outdoors doesn’t mean you're safe from COVID-19 – a White House event showed what not to do The outdoors is less risky than an enclosed room, but it isn't a COVID-19-free zone. Here's what you need to know. Look, even if there were none (super spreader events entirely outside), I'm not saying "being outdoors is 100% safe." I'm just asking a question. Trying to gain some knowledge here. This is not me arguing a point, and is separate from (but related to) the DMM stuff. Sturgis Bike Rally: Superspreading Event or Not? A new study says that the recent bike rally in Sturgis is linked to 260,000 cases of COVID, but South Dakota officials don't agree. There's disagreement over that one, and was the bike rally outside, or did the bikers stay in hotels, go in bars and drink and eat together, etc.? Do you have a specific example? Indoors. Be specific. A quick search on that gave me this: Big indoor portion to that one, and nine people were later positive after that.
    • I love golf hats. All kinds. But this thread is for those special hats you own that are in your personal Hall of Fame. Preferably non-OEM. Let's see them!    First up is Seminole. I have played in three stroke play tournaments there and its an incredible place. Second up is my Crosby hat from the Clambake. I have never been but it was a gift from a great friend of mine and tied in the black and brown I used to wear. The logo is supercool and a suede bill that screams 80s.
