Most Embarrassing Moments on the Course?

Par 3, 3rd hole at Blackmoor GC in Richmond, Ohio. I reversed shanked the ball. I hit the outside of the ball with the outside of the hosel. The ball bounced and hit me. :doh:

That takes some considerable skill!

Not mine, but my partner had a "bathroom accident" on the course in the middle of a tournament. Not a pleasant experience at all. Luckily there was a restroom nearby and he could tie a sweater around his waist.

i hit a terrible shot with my hybrid.  turned and with mild vehemence slammed (really, slammed is almost too strong a word) it on one of the tires of my push cart.  the head snapped right off at the hosel.  i was ashamed and embarrassed by my childish behavior.

Playing in a tournament. First hole. I kinda thought I needed to fart, but swung anyway, and farted after impact quite loudly. Had only known the guys 10 minutes but we all laughed and carried on

You were just adding some power to your swing, and it least it shows you that you swing relaxed!

Last year at my company golf outing that had 2 deep shotgun starts as we had so many people. On the 3rd hole that had to have a sponsor table at it I had a wicked tee shot so wanted to take a provisional and did not have a ball so a guy in my group gave me one.  Yea it was an exploding powder filled ball. It did not feel odd at all.  I did not expect it at all.  That thing busted in to a huge cloud of white dust.  Oh yea it was in front of about 20 people as well....

Following up a 72 on day one of an amateur event with an 87.. wanted to quit so bad.

I noticed that as golfers get better, their embarrassing moments seem to be score related.

Yeah, I have to admit that 15 strokes is pretty bad. The "87" would be pretty darn good for me though.

c'mon - you can do better than that

I have one for about every round - here's one

warm ups before my first ever league tee - hitting and putting really good, some of the guys know my game is 'ok' and they are embarassing me about me 'taking' away the low handicap position from the current guy, in the league, etc etc etc....

so 1st hole driver - sculled to just barely in the fairway

Meh. Bad golf shots don't embarrass me anymore. Just last weekend I was playing with @saevel25 and chunked my opening tee shot then chunked my next attempt to advance the ball up the fairway. I was ticked because I doubled the hole after wasting two perfectly good shots though.

Welcome to my world. I think I'm the only person to get within 30 yards on a tee shot of a par 4 hole and double it.

I'm really sorry to say that it's not embarrassing for my skill level.

great point - bad shots shouldn't be embarassing

let's get back to stories about people crapping their pants and falling into swamps and getting shot down by the cart girl in a very public manner.....

Any time a slower group allows you to tee off and pass them up is nerve wracking for me.   I don't like an audience and these are the times that any kind of mishit seems to be pretty amplified.

Speaking of cart girls, a guy in our league asked our cart girl Brandy, who is quite stunning BTW, if the "Brandy" tattoo on her shoulder meant that she was that sweet. He didn't know her name and about fell over when she replied without hesitation that it was her girlfriend's name.

Yeah. Quite often can count my score as par + stupid shots.

Had one of those really nerve-wracking moments when I first started playing a few years ago. Got on the first tee, small crowd as the club team had tee'd off before us. I stepped up to the tee and proceeded to throw my driver about 15 yards, while the ball and tee remained untouched.....

When I first played on a full size 18 holer around 12 yrs ago! 1st tee, bit of a crowd watching, I'm trembling like a shitting dog, took an awfully fast swing attempting to knock the ball into next week, but missed the ball completely! I Could hear all the sniggering as I re composed myself, did exactly the same thing again! The sniggering became a loud laughter, I re composed myself again, thought to myself I just need to hit it this time, then sliced it 50yrds into the trees! I was mortified! It still gets a mention even now after 12 years!

    • Day 16: Putted for 10 minutes then did some 9-3 swings with the new 716 AP2s. The more connected backswing is feeling so good. Hitting mat will be here tomorrow and by an awesome stroke of luck, the net I ordered that was on back order until the end of the month ended up being moved up to delivery this Friday.
    • I'm presenting this video without any comments. I endeavor to "hang up and listen." I'm curious what everyone thinks of this video. Chuck posted it on his YouTube channel. So, post away, and discuss amongst yourselves. I will work very hard to not post in this topic (after this post, of course).
    • It's not there now, so I'm not saying that, but obviously please tread lightly w.r.t. making anything political. I imagine perhaps hospitals will send the data to both places. I don't know what powers the White House has to mandate where hospitals send data (outside of laws like HIPAA regulations, etc.).
    • I got 18 the other day. 292 off the tee, 104 to the hole, hit it 103, and tapped in. That left only 1, 2, 4, and 8. Today I was eager to knock off a few on the front. On 1, 280 or so, slightly thin 9I from 140 to 15 feet over the hole. Putt broke 18" when I'd planned on about 15". On 2, chipped an 8I a bit past the hole. 12 feet, but 5' of break. Putt just slid by low. On 4, hit a good hybrid out to the right, good lob wedge to five feet. Putt broke 8" left to right. Made it in the heart. Great putt. On 8, I pushed a PW from 128 after hitting a decent driver about 280 (downhill, but into the breeze) to five feet. The putt broke just over two feet and had to be a perfect combo of line and speed. It was a 5% slope. Putt slipped by just low (the putt before mine, from 8', missed just low and kept rolling… to six feet. So I babied it a little, though I'd played enough break at that speed). Oh well. Three holes remain. I'll get 8, and 2, at some point. One will be the tough one, but if the course remains this firm and I can hit 8I to PW into it, I'll get it too. When it's soft and cool we hit 5I or 4I into it. 10.5 rounds in the books (the 0.5 round was the front nine, annoyingly enough).
    • Not enough details in this article to know exactly what this means... But it does have me concerned.  1st the attack on Fauci and then this.  https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/14/politics/trump-administration-coronavirus-hospital-data-cdc/index.html?fbclid=IwAR0R2nT1cScOT50Nw6EcI6b5BuWnE4ruK7_f2pEIkWiRqDZjnI6UKLvWJ4Q
