This Weekend, this caveman was teeing off at Newport News Golf Course at Deer Run, and let me tell you, this shot felt amazing. Everything was all lined up. from head to hands to driver. The Ball, on the other hand, didn’t quite agree. As soon as it left the tee it began to slice right. I quickly realized what was happening and yelled “Fore.” I am not sure if it was the timing or if I didn’t yell loud enough, but some poor guy cruising along in his golf cart took the ball to his arm.
This got me thinking, what are some of the worst golf shots I have ever seen? Well here are a few that I came up with:
- Tiger Woods hit 3 Fans at the Memorial Tournament a few weeks ago.
- Phil Mickelson’s Tee shot on the 17th hole of the 2006 US Open which landed in a Trash Can!
Michelle Wie’s 3rd hole Drive during the 2007 Ginn Tribute which hits a parked car and leads to a 10 stroke hole.
- Scott Hoch’s missed 2 ft putt at the 1985 Masters. This Putt could have won him the tournament. Instead, he never won a Major in his career.
- TC Chen, the only Pro Golfer to ever have a shot named after him, had a 4 stroke lead during the ’85 US Open, when he double-hit the ball from the rough of the 5th hole, causing him to score an 8, and blowing his lead.
Can you think of any more? What was the worst golf shot you have ever taken?
