How Did I Do That?

23 Nov

I have been playing golf for a long time but this does not mean I am consistent at it. There are good days and there are bad days on the golf course with or without injury. Last year during a span of slightly over a week for two games, I did the most unimaginable. I hurt some trees…

It was a good tee off. But the second shot went wayward and to the right. I was in between the trees.

Hmm… How do I get out of this? So in this first game, I stood over my ball and looked ahead. I could punch my ball out in between the trees to the fairway, I thought. And so I did.

But of course, me being me, my ball accurately hit the first tree and deflected forward in the direction of another tree only to deflect backwards off it as well! The poor trees… I lost some distance obviously.

Two deflections off two trees! How accurate is that?

Then during the second game, a similar scenario occurred. I teed off into a tree again. But this time, my attempt to get the ball out onto the fairway deflected off the poor tree so badly, I ended up a good ten feet behind the tee box instead. How did I do that?

Golf is a funny game. Thank goodness when I played yesterday, none of this tree-hurting deflections occurred. Phew.
