Anyone else hit a car?

We were playing a scramble at the local semi-private country club several years ago.  The 7th hole is a par 5 along a 4-lane city street separated by a chain-link fence and a row of very mature trees.  When they were giving out the prizes at the end of the tournament during the banquet, the announcer held up a golf ball and asked who's it was.  He described the markings on it.  A lady jumped up and said: "Oh, that's one of my husband's balls."  When the laughter subsided, the announcer said it was found out on the street.

A driving range just outta town has 3 or 4 cars parked down range, so yes! While really golfing though, no.

 

My second year of golfing, it was just my mom and I out. Either 9th or 18th hole with houses and very tall, mature trees lining the fairway, but nothing on the other side of the houses. Stepped up and hit a huge, high slice. Stood there ready to grimace, but never heard anything. Drove down the street on the way out very slowly. Didn't see any damage, and couldn't find my ball. Shame too, cause it was a ProV1

Never hit a car- although have bounced one into parking lots once or twice.  The "broken glass" moment for me occurred when I was in high school, working on a shot my father taught me- open stance, open blade, vertical (V shaped) swing with the objective of popping the ball almost directly up in the air (to get over a close obstacle) then land like a butterfly with sore feet... well, I thought with a little more UMMMF I could get it to clear our house ( I was in the backyard, our house was a typical 2 story brick cape cod).  What I didn't count on was blading it a little and having it go right thru the second floor hallway window.   So I had to take what little $ I had earned from lawn cutting and such,  and spend it on a window that was usually open anyway (there was a fan in the window, window itself never closed) but that excuse didn't fly...  1 hour and 25 bucks later, I had the new window and much less expendable cash for the weekend!

Yes,and was very costly.Was invited to play a great club locally a few years back.The 8th hole is 290 ish par 4 that runs parallel to a side road framed with members homes.A elderly member was driving her vintage Jaguar down that road when i teed off.Hit a viscous low snap hook 3 wood right into her front window.Right when I hit the ball I knew it wasn't going to be good.Had to pay for a vintage jaguar glass replacement which is wasn't cheap.Was never invited back either

I've hit everything but a car. Most memorable hit, a metal shed, but it was situated on the corner of a dogleg right a few paces from the rough at a course called Chesapeake Hills. I knocked on the door and left my info but they never called. Of course I wasn't the only one as the thing looked like the surface of the moon, lots of pock marks and plenty of golf ball caused dents. Very bad placement of the shed.

My worst was hitting an outhouse that was occupied.Really hit a clunker that hit the side and made an ear rattling "boom".Poor chap came out in shock.I didnt have enough courage to say it was me that hit it.Playing partners laughed about that one for years

I think I hit my own car today, but I didn't see any damage done. I was the only one at the course so I put in some practice with the big stick. I sliced one left and it was heading right towards the parking lot, but usually never goes that far with a slice, but today it did. I saw it bounce, hit what I thought was my car, then bounce back the opposite way. I for sure thought it cracked a headlight or something. I was freaking out the entire time walking up to my vehicle. Didn't see any damage, so it either lost speed or hit something else close by my car. Got away unscathed.

Holy smokes!! For that price, it should've been bulletproof and never shattered in the first place.

While on vacation this past May, we left my Granddaughter (18) with our Mini Cooper. She went to a soccer game and the windshield was smashed with a soccer ⚽️. Since windshields are covered without fault my INS replaced it with zero deductible.

Lol I've actually hit a moving truck! First hole is close to the road and back then I had a vicious slice. I swung and it was heading towards the road and all of the sudden this comes comes flying up and the ball was heading right for it. I put my head down like I was putting a tee in the ground and heard the BANG! The guy kept driving and honked his horn at me lol not my best moment to say the least

I've have personally never hit one, but one of the guys I play with had his car hit twice in the past month. He has parked there for years with never being hit. I don't even know how it got hit. You would almost have to dead sh**k a driver to hit that direction. I guess that's just golf.

I've never hit a car but I've been in a group where a buddy broke the passenger window on an Escalade as it was driving down the road...very luck it didn't cause a wreck.

Unfortunately I have, sliced my second shot on a par 4 that has the road run next to it on the right. I started praying after I hit that shot that it didn't hit a car. Nailed the car right above the passenger side window. They pulled over and we talked. I offered to have it looked at a body shop. They took me up on the offer. I gave them the address of a shop where I know the owner. On the way there the car was t boned by a car that ran the light. Their insurance covered all the repairs and fix the dent.
