I listened to the latest Sweet Spot podcast on Grit, and @jon and @Adamyounggolf both shared some good blowups they experienced on the golf course. What’s the most memorable blow up you’ve had or witnessed?
I have a few that come to mind. The last one was the cure.
HS golf tournament, 3-putted a couple holes in a row and hit my bag with my Scotty. Pull the driver out on the next tee and the shaft is broken in the handle. I used 3 iron the rest of the day and hit every fairway and almost every green and shot 78 w/ 40 putts.
Another HS tournament, playing against one of the top players in the district. I was actually making putts and a couple strokes up on him. He missed a short putt on 13 then turned around and chunked his putter and hit me in the leg 30 ft away. His dad, in the gallery walked onto the green and pulled him off the course.
Playing with my parents, I had been steaming/pouting for a few holes, then slammed my club into the ground. My parents said nothing. Next tee my dad hits a great tee shot then snaps his 5-wood over his knee. A few seconds pass by, then he looks at me and says something like ‘I thought you’d like to see what a jacka** looks like on a golf course’.
