Gday All

 

I taught myself a great lesson on Saturday and i am embarressed and ashamed of myself

 

I admit i can have a bad temper at times but i did something i frown apon  and that is chucking a club to the ground.

 

well  i did it in anger  and i am certainly not proud of it..

 

 

I was having a reasonable round on Saturday  and when i got to the 9th my tee shot went wayward left hand side rough i accepted that then topped the ball 5 metres  then did the same thing  3rd  then 4th shot  hit it marginally better  to the right hand side rough still I am calmish  next shot 5th  back to the left side rough

now I am getting  bit heated  6th shot topped it again  now boiling point and through club to ground and twang  8 iron snaps   7th shot onto green(best shot I did on this 9th hole then 2 putted to walk of with a 9....

 

I don't know what possessed me for loosing my cool as normally I would brush it off pretty quick and not worry about it    wether it was just frustration that things wasn't going the way I wanted it to  or just because I could loose my cool.

 

I am not trying to excuse the fact I did chuck a club and break a club in the process  because I only have myself to blame for it , as it wasn't the gear  or the people I was playing with or how the course was playing it was just a stupid nuff nuff on the end of the club.....

 

 

looking back and thinking about it now , there really shouldn't be any reason to do such thing.  as you only  humiliate yourself  and start to make others feel uncomfortable around you  when ya get fired up...

 

I feel ashamed of myself and I am embarrassed about my actions

Just make sure you chuck it forward.
Otherwise you end up looking like a knob end walking back to collect it

I used to kick them, got pretty good at hitting the midpoint/flexpoint. Current 50degree has a slight bow as evidence from the last time, which was first in a decade or so. Sometime you just let it out Oz :)

Are you sure you only got a 9? Stroke can do that to you Oz, I hope you were able to keep going, for there are those of us, that do not. 

If you were playing with me, I'm sure it would have given us a giggle a couple of holes later.

Don't beat yourself up over it, its only a game.

We all  get angry, and make choices. You have owned yours. Move on.

I did the same with my driver as I don't really care for the shaft. Can get it quite high on occasion. Tried with the 4 iron one day and the steel did not respond as kindly I learnt my lesson that day that as well as looking like a fool it also costs a fair bit of time and money to replace.

Was it a par 4 or 5? Were you playing stableford?

You probably should have picked up at some point before the 9th shot.

You're welcome.

I figure chucking a club is preferable to just snapping it over you knee.

 

At least when chucking it, the club has a chance of a full recovery. :)

 

(Last club I chucked was at Moonah a week or two ago. It wasn't you're typical hammer throw of 100m plus, but just enough to get it away from me ....... so that I wouldn't snap it over my knee)

This shows that sometimes it's for the good of the club.

 

So it must be a good thing.

Posted 14 November 2016 - 03:21 PM

my last "incident" was 23rd June 2012. Probably says more that I haven't played many games since then than it does about my temperament.

 

I was playing in the semi-final for the Club match play, I was 5 down after 10 holes and got it back to dormie on 17. I think he was on in three and I was about 15m off greenside chipping my second. I knew I had to land my ball near to Dad's but he was too far away to mark it and there was no way I was going to hit it, surely. I chipped it well, landed it where I needed to at the right speed and it tracked straight for Dad's ball, it hit it and knocked my ball off the green, down the ridge, into the water.

I had taken a few steps back and swung the club around me in absolute frustration. Turns out I had stepped close enough to a big gum tree that was stronger than the shaft just above the hosel. I got up and down for a half and to lose 2 and 1

New shaft, but it still wasn't my fault
