This is a golf thing isn't it.
Might as well post a headline about HAHA moments in synchronized swimming or air hockey.

I just want to know how the shot ended up and he saved par.

You can die in the pool, but I'll kill you at air hockey.

Imagine how sad your life would be if that was something you wished for.

If it was the first hole you can call breakfast ball and it doesn't count.

/Also lunch ball for the 10th hole and 1 mulligan per 9.
//Still barely break 100.

I'll be utilizing the ZJ rule a bunch this year. "Naw, that was supposed to be a practice swing."

Well, shiat, then every time I hit a crap drive I'll just say I didn't intend to hit it.

When you said "hit his ball"  this is not what I imagined

You can break 100? You some sort of golfing god?

/seriously though, I never actually broke 100

I have a kind of CSB from my golfing days. I used to go to this 3-par course pretty regularly. Like most courses, they have different tee off locations.

Well there's this one spot on the course which is basically an island surrounded by water with a very small 'fairway' I guess you could call it. The white tees have to hit over the water, but the red tees (women's) are allowed to play it from the 'fairway'.

I wish I could explain it better, but let's just say on this 3-par course, the red tees were literally 60 yards from the green, and the water is directly off to the right side. You almost can't miss the green unless you hit it over, and it's a big island.

So I'm watching this scene unfold. This guy, a grown man, decides to hit from the red tees, probably to avoid his ball going into the water. He then proceeds to take a live swing. The ball somehow hits the wooden tee marker, and plops right into the water.

Funniest thing I've ever seen in golf.

He got a hole in one?

This is a strange practice swing. He's clearly not ready because his knees aren't even flexed and the ball is aligned to the toe of the driver. Now, I'm at least a club head away from the ball on my practice swing but these guys can be 5mm away and swing all day without even hitting it.

Sure when either one of those become a multibillion dollar industry.

I looked it up.  Article said the ball went off the toe of the club, struck the round tee box marker near it, and landed just a few feet in front of the golfer.  According to the rule book, it was an "inadvertent contact" and there was no penalty.  I'm a duffer, but I always thought if the club head touches the ball and the ball moves, it's a stroke.  I was always taught that if you're in a sand  trap you can't even touch the  ball with the club  before your swing.  But I imagine The Masters has people who know the rules and carry the book with them.

Which makes sense. If you stumble up to the tee and drop the ball against your club that would hardly count as a stroke. (Unless you were having one.) A stroke should only come after a legit play on the ball.

I did something like that once. Except off the heel of the club face. I topped the ball. It went sidewise away from me, hit some kind of rubber thingie that marked the  edges of the tee area and wound up behind me. It has been said that it took over 2 weeks for the echoes of laughter to die away.

My only defense is that I had grotesquely out-grown my clubs. (I had bought them when I was 12 when I was 5'2" and in the interim had grown to over 6' and had never replaced my clubs. Who knew that you were supposed to have clubs that fit your body?)

Since the ball was on the tee it was not in play, if he had done that in the fairway it would have been a stroke.

Years ago I used to play with a few friends of mine and we were all pretty shiat. One round, my fried tees up, swings and whack, his ball hits the tee box of the women's tees in front and bounces back behind the tees we were on, for a drive of about -20 yards. It took us about 10 minutes to recover enough to be able to carry on.

You cannot touch the sand with your club in the sand trap prior to swinging for the ball.
