Worst shot your kid has hit?


Recommended Posts

Just to lighten things up I thought I’d ask what was the worst shot your kid has hit at the worst time?  Thought it might get some laughs. 

 

The first one that comes to mind for me was when a manufacturers rep was watching my son on the first tee and he cold topped his 3W 50 yards into the rough off the tee.

 

Another was in a qualifier event where he pumped 3 OB on his 10th hole after going 2 under on his front 9.

There's definitely something more important that I should be doing.

Oh this is easy. 

 

Last year at a tournament. Downhill Par 5. Kid strokes it off the tee. Hit a mid height piss missile that went on downhill the hard pan like a prostitute running out of church. He had 300 to get to a creek that is literally 10 feet wide at most and was sitting 20 yards in front of it. Mind you kid was 11, he could hit it nowhere near that length but on the hard pan and downhill it just kept going so he had 160 left in to the pin. Told him to just hit a smooth 7W and go make an eagle. Cold topped it right into the creek right in front of him. 

 

Funny thing is he dropped right at his feet and stroked it to 10 feet and made the putt.

I don't remember a worst shot.

 

One hole recently during a college tournament he put a 3W into the woods after trying to use it as a fairway finder.  Pulled driver for the next shot.  He landed the provisional in that thick rough that the mower never cuts.  He whiffed his next shot.  It was that deep.  Next shot he put it to within 10 feet of the hole.

 

A few years back he was playing in a tournament.

 

Him and his playing partner disagreed on his relief.  He kept dropping and it rolling down.  The false front was pretty bad, so he hit two bad shot trying to be cute.  I think he made quad.

It was a putt, a 12 foot putt lol. Very first tournament. 9 years old. Had been playing for a while, but never any tournaments. I was nervous as hell as he had driver into the 140 yard par 3 1st. Absolutely smoked it, baby draw that settled 12 feet from the hole. I walked with a little strut (proud dad of this stud golfer), thinking damn he’s ready to play. He promptly hits the 12 ft putt about 25 ft. Then hits the come backer 6 ft. 2 more putts to get in the hole and he walks off with a 4 putt 5. We still laugh (well we laugh now) when he plays that hole. What a start to tournament golf

I don't have a kid but since I'm 16 i'll play along. 

When I tried out for my HS golf team last year (playing ~11-12 HCP), during my tryouts I had this tee shot on a long par 5 (picture off the CC's website from our teeboxes) and I don't know what happened but next thing I know my ball hits the water and skips over for a drive of ~95 yds. And that is all with the coaches standing directly behind. Humiliating.

We have had plenty but this one hurts the most given the circumstance.  4 under after 8 in the third round of a AJGA event , he is sitting 1 -2 back of the lead.  

 

9 is a short par 4, hits drive slightly right, partially blocked by a short tree..proceeds to attempt a low cut around the tree for the green.  Skulls it, past the green, past the road and OB!!  I do not know if it is his worst shot.. but definitely the stupidest shot he has ever hit!
