That'd go a long way to explaining some of those 40 point rounds...

 

They're few and far between !!!!

I'm having trouble winning a ball DTL.

May I suggest that if you are going to ask "what do you do when someone throws a club" and you give 5 alternatives, is that all of them are things you can do. Not things that you just think or cross your mind. Otherwise the question is, "what is your reaction".

"think it was funny" and "feel uncomfortable" are not things you decide to do, they are reactions.

If you are doing a survey, you need to think about the questions. Seriously. Cheers  John

https://iseekgolf.co...t-golf-tantrums

Every golfer has either thrown a tantrum on the golf course or seen a playing partner throw one. Miguel Angel Jimenez had his own outburst at last week’s Senior PGA Championship - a major in the 50-plus ranks - when he drop-kicked his putter after a missed putt.

Yeah, I just find it funny when guys go off.

 

I watched a playing partner hurl his wedge over a green one day and it lodged itself 40 foot up into a gum tree. (3rd green Olinda GC)

 

20 minutes, and about 4 or 5 broken clubs later (he had been throwing clubs from his bag up at the wedge to try and dislodge it from where it had got stuck in the fork of a decent sized branch) .. he finally got the idea to park his buggy next to the tree, climb up on the buggy and then climb up into the tree to retrieve his wedge.

 

Oh, I should mention that he was known for having a "bit of a temper", as his golf bag had about 4 or 5 different holes in the sides of it from previous tanties. :)

Is there a question?

Question: What would you do if your playing partner kicked or threw a club to the ground after a poor shot in a regular club competition?
 Nothing
 Think it was funny
 Feel uncomfortable
 Verbally criticise the person
 Report the person to your club
