when i was younger my moms bf took me golfing and i wasnt really all that good. I was on a par 3 with a iron, not even a wood with a tee. He was sitting in the golf cart about 20 feet to the right of me and a little infront. I shafted the ball and it hit him in the head, bounced off his head to the roof of the cart and bounced off there and hit him in the head again.

hes head was split wide the hell open and blood was everywhere.

luckally it wanst all that bad and he just had to have some stiches. but that was with a iron and a pre teen kid who dont really have alot of power in his swing. Id hate to see the damage a full grown adult with a wood and some power could do off a tee

I must be a little off, but that image is really funny. I guess it's because it turned out ok.

Question...did you ever go golfing with him again? :devil:

Never stand anywhere but behind an active tee box.
But not too close! When I was 7 I definately caught a driver with my forehead and shattered my skull. Several hours of putting the bones back together like an expert level puzzle and 2 months of healing and I was good as new! Sort of.. what's my name again?

:laughing: I joke I joke. It did suck, though.

Stray balls can be dirty, much better to leave stray balls alone.;)

:laughing:
The "Stray Balls" were one of Jills' favorite bands in the 70's.:laughing:
