I let rip with one today. First time I can remember doing it in a long time.

And it felt good!

Anyone else want to cleanse their soul and declare a club throw?

Ive been known to throw the odd wedge out of a bunker. It can be cathartic

I probably should've launched my driver today

I'm caddying at the boroondora cup and on the first 18 one of the guys in our threw a club at his bag and smashed his iPhone 6 to pieces. He didn't come out for the 2nd round.

So what caused the momentary laps of anger?;)

Mate tossed his Nike driver off the tee, went about 40mtrs and has been lodged up a tree near the top for approx 3yrs.

Still there, we try and shake it out when we visit that course.

Might need regripped if we get it back.

I've been working on my swing a bit. Been hitting it awful but managing my game to get around it. Made a fairly large swing change to sort myself out.

I was even par through 8 in the monthly medal. All good.

Made a quad down nine. Pissed off internally but I make a point of trying not to get emotional on the course one way or another.

Make par down 10 and 11. Find the fairway on 12. Then hit the dirtiest pull hook 7 iron second shot. Was aiming left of the pin and missed the green by 20m right. Just a shithouse swing that was nothing like what I've been working on. Lazy.

I guess there was still some residual anger from the pent!

Of course not. They know that I am a person of good character and this was a momentary lapse of judgement.

I did apologise to my playing partners and told them that I was embarrassed by my lack of self-control.

Here is a pretty good reason to NEVER throw a club.

 

"A GOLF club carelessly thrown has left a young man no longer able to work, to play sport or read and write after it caved in his skull.

The club was thrown by a frustrated mate after he played a bad shot on a Noosa golf course.

Dane Parviainen – who was 25 at the time – collapsed immediately, bled profusely and needed two emergency surgeries to relieve brain pressure from the life-threatening injury.

Now 27, the qualified carpenter and chef is no longer employable because of the brain damage.

The man who threw the club, Daniel Patrick Betts, was jailed when he faced Maroochydore District Court yesterday.

He had been charged with causing grievous bodily harm at the sixth hole of the Noosa Par 3 Golf Club on December 13, 2009.

Judge Michael Shanahan said Mr Parviainen was no longer able to drive, socialise or participate in recreational activities.

“He has been permanently and severely disabled,” he said.

“The degree of negligence is a high one. You clearly threw the club with some force in the direction of people.”

Betts must serve six months of a two-year jail term.

The balance will hang over his head for two years.

A statement of facts tendered to the court detailed how Betts, the victim, the victim’s father and another friend were 15 holes into a 27-hole game when the injury occurred about 3.30pm.

One witness told police Betts regularly threw clubs in frustration over his poor form on the golf course, “at least twice every round”.

He said Betts, on this occasion, bashed a wedge into the ground and then spun 180 degrees and threw the club at shoulder level towards a golf cart.

Mr Parviainen had stopped playing because he had no more balls and was standing with Betts’ children, aged six and four, beside the cart.

“The golf club has gone over the heads ... (of) both the kids, missing their heads by about four inches, the club then struck Dane on the head,” the witness said.

The court heard Betts had done something similar when he was about 12 years old, hitting his own father in the mouth with a club.

Defence barrister Steve Courtney described the injury as “awful” but not a deliberate action.

“It was a brain snap, it happened in a split second,” he said.

Crown prosecutor Greg Cummings said Betts had originally tried to downplay his action, claiming the club had slipped from his hand in a practice shot.

He said evidence he had previously thrown clubs out of anger and that he had hit his own father should have taught him the danger.

“(The photos tendered to the court) show how severe the force was,” he said.

“He is now effectively unemployable.”

A piece of bone from Mr Parviainen’s skull was removed and left open until May last year when an acrylic cranioplasty was inserted.
