This was a good one from Sunday's round.  The course had a windstorm during the week that broke off hundreds (!) of trees.  You can see the flag left-center of the photo.

I went for it...why the heck not.  Tried to punch a 5-iron through the "window"...ended up catching one of the overhanging limbs and dropping down about 10' later.  Fortunately clear of the trouble, so I was able to hit onto the green with my next shot.

That shot sets up perfectly for a duck hook, doesn’t it?

Interesting day today regarding this thread.

Not so much a death shot but interesting enough to share, here’s the tee on #3:

Rangefinder said 22 yards 😃

Served myself breakfast on #12:

And finally, my lie on #14:

I was surprised I even found it.

My 7i shank would put me  nicely in the fairway around that tree!

This is a wonderful example of the joys of shanking. From my practice area I actually had to yell ‘Fore!’ I mean, who does that? 
 

The red line is where I intended to hit my 8i. Our practice range uses floaters hitting into water. The yellow line shows my ball flight. Yep, right onto #10 tee box. Not even on the practice range can I be spared from humiliation.

So again, spare me the sorrows of your pushes, hooks/pulls. Child’s play.

It's still not the most embarrassing shank story you ever told me.

2 questions:

1.  Was there anyone on #10 tee?

2.  What's the range cart look like that picks up those balls on the water?

Lol...yeah true. I’m sure the group was wondering where the hell the ‘fore’ was coming from. I guess when they saw I was left handed they just drove by and said nothing and figured let the poor bastard alone....

Offffff course there as a group on the tee. Yeah it’s a mess....poor guys get out large nets and scoop the balls that collect along the banks. So when there’s no wind...it’s an oar boat...

What is that course? I remember playing one down there with a water range to the left of #10, but I can’t remember what course it was.

This is a new twist on the whole Death Shot thing. I didn’t mean that anyone was at risk of actually meeting their maker. @Vinsk has taken this extremely literal. 

Good thing he's a doctor.

My first instinct whenever I hear fore is to turn away from the source of the noise and cover my head, so had that been me on the tee, it wouldn't have even occurred to me that it was an odd place to be hearing it.

Didn't yell fore on a particular one, but I probably should have.

Couple of years ago, I got a bad case of them and limited myself to the range for two weeks trying to sort it out. 

Some where in that fortnight from hell I was set up in my customary spot on the far right of Kittyhawk's range. The idea was to not scare the other guys on the range. Problem is that the first tee of the Eagle course is just right of the range. 

The very first ball I hit on this particular day was with a PW. It's my most reliable club. So it was a paralyzing sense of horror when my first effort crossed five feet in front of that No. 1 tee box with some wide-eyed fellows getting ready to start their round. Too stunned to even get a sound out of my mouth.
