Describe some of your Worst Shots of all time

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

One of my first few rounds out, I was with my cousin in MD golfing at a course built in a residential area. Was in the right rough with a row of houses to my right. Shanked the daylights out of one and watched it in slow motion head right toward the window. Luckily it hit the shutter and missed the window by inches...but turned around to jump in the cart and my cousin was already a good 50 yards away

Easy... so I cut a corner on a dog leg left par 5. I was 147 yards out... wind at my face I have 9 allll day. Go up to the ball confidently and swing away. Hit the ball clean as all hell. Except I accidentally grabbed my 5 iron. I’m not even sure how I hit it so pure thinking it was a 9i

Are you playing one length clubs?  I feel like thats a tough mistake to make but crazier things have happened I'm sure ;). Good job!  😉

I don't even know where to begin with this one!

I guess I should start at the beginning. My very first time at the driving range was in high school with my dad. Obviously wasn't hitting it well, but was enjoying myself. Decided to call it a day after I let go of the club and it flew OVER the fence to my left about 75 yards away!

My second story involves a course with houses lining nearly every fairway. I was slicing soo badly that day, that I hit 10 houses! The only good thing is that 8 of those bounced back into the fairway 😂

Ryder Cup Style Team Event, Alternate Shot.   515 yard par 5.

I'm on the tee,  and I'm stroking on this hole, and the sequence goes like this as I tee the ball up:

My partner: Just keep us in the short grass, I'll get us home.  

I proceed to absolutely 99% whiff the tee shot, I say 99% because somehow I nudged it about 8 inches off the tee to the right.  I'm standing there stunned.

Our opponent says: "Well there's your pop"

My partner looking at me with lasers that could cut right through me

I reply: Well it's in the short grass.  Everyone cracks up.

He hits it off the deck, we get to the ball and I have about 260 left, back then I had a bit of length, but still came up about 10 yards short right of the green on our 3rd.  He chipped to about five feet.  

I've never been so nervous over a 5 footer in my life, but rolled it in for a par net birdie.  

As we walked off our opponent, said, "I'm not sure that's how the architect drew it up, but nicely done guys!"

3 years ago I hit a driver into a fairway bunker. I have 170 uphill to an undulating green. I choke a 5 iron in an attempt to hit a high cut to the green. I blade the SOB and leave myself 150 uphill on the same line in the rough. I take a 8 iron and blade it about 3 feet off of the ground. I’m watching this ball roll and roll onto the green. We drive up and my ball is 12” from the cup.

 

It was the absolute ugliest par I’ve ever witnessed....a par nonetheless.

This is a funny topic! Nice choice. I definitely remember 1 shot @B.Boston (I don’t remember the course) but was a par 5 had a great tee shot With about 220 to go over a large pond on the right and the green Started to curve on the left side Around the back of the pond and the pin was back right. Good layup area on the left for an easy chip and bird. 
Of course @B.Boston knowing my thought process says “you know it’s going in the drink right?”.....well layups are for basketball my friend and I take out my trusty 4 iron and proceed to chunk it right in the middle of the old pond.....didn’t even have a chance SMH image.gif.01ee1859836974e64cd179cc9cd1a4a9.gif

Not to THAT extent. Haha

Oh, but I've had SO many!  One that I recall was early in my golfing career, when I couldn't break 100, we went to a fairly nice course (why I went is beyond me).  Standing on the number one tee box, I (for lack of a better word) shanked my tee shot.  As it shot hard right and into the parking lot, we yelled fore as 4 or 5 guys dove for cover.  Miraculously, I did not do serious damage to any of the parked cars or cause bodily harm in the process.

Key phrase in there is: “Most 2nd shots will go in the pond if you go at the pin unless you’re an ace.”

Someone didn’t listen... The approach looked something like this:

As you can see, it brings a whole lot of water into play. It was a glorious mishit indeed! Can’t say I faired much better, I ended up under the tree next to the pond just trying to lay up.

That might be my favorite hole on that course.. Now I want to go back and play there again.

I was playing in the Delaware am and on hole 15 there is a small gully off to the left of the tee box, about 15 yards.  This gully is NOT in anyone's thoughts on the tee because of its location.  Anyway, my best friend and I were playing a practice round there and he hit a shank into that gully, I don't know how because he is a 1 handicap, he just simply shanked it.  So, back to the Delaware Am.  we get to that tee box (and this is my home course nonetheless) and he says to me before I tee off, "oh this is the hole I shanked one," followed by a small chuckle by us both.  I was hitting the ball decent that day off the tee.  Yup, you guessed it, pull out my trusty 3 wood and turn on it like I was a top!  Shanked it off the tee and into the gully it goes!  That was one of the worst shots I hit!

1. This priceless gem from my father.

Dropped that Noodle right into the water.

2. And this from the same tee from my brother. Love you bud.

1. I don’t have videos of myself making bad swings because I don’t make bad swings.

2. I have no recollection of ever hitting a bad shot.

Maybe you have one two saved on your phone somewhere? Haha

I’ll have to think of what my worst was. I promise to add back my worst once I figure out what it was. I’ve got plenty of poor shots, but gotta think of what the worst was.
