On Sunday, I was playing River Grove Park (Kingwood) and hole 18 is a blind, sweeping anny hole.

I told the group I would spot for them, so I walked up to the bend in the fairway and watched the tee. My friend threw sidearm, and his throw turned and then headed straight for me.

I had my hand in my pocket, and I couldn't get my hand out of my pocket so I could duck, so I just kicked my feet out from under myself, and landed flat on my back, just as the disc sailed over me. I felt like a dumb ass, and everyone got a great laugh out of watching me bust my ass so I wouldn't get hit in the face by a driver.

i was playing at 7:30 AM, a half hour after the park was open, and there was a crazy amount of dew on the course. i go to cross a bridge that's like 4 feet long and 2 feet wide, very small, and bust my ace on the bridge, bend sideways cause i landed on the edge of the bridge, and ended up toppling over. kinda did a sideways summersault, and spilled my bag in the process...

A tract of farmland separates the course from the airport, so they don't fly over the course.

My son and I had just teed off on a hole, and as we started walking up the fairway I look up in time to see one of these planes in the midst of doing a loop and heading in our direction. I jumped out of the way, the left wing missed my son's head by about a foot (he didn't see it coming) and crash-landed right next to us. The cockpit cover came off on impact and inside was a Winnie the Pooh figurine in the pilot's seat.

Needless to say, we were pretty freaked out. Those things are huge and it would have messed me up if I hadn't seen it.
I love it. That is a great story. My wife , being a Winnie The Pooh collector also enjoyed it.

Ok, not funny or weird, just aggravating.

Yeah, I felt bad for a buddy of mine who must not have gotten much guidance from another friend who I think got him into the sport. One of his first drivers was the groove, he has had a good toss or two out of that strait, and decent distance, but I still would have suggested against it.

I went to meet a buddy of mine at a course but he was running late as normal. I ran into a kid who showed me another course when I was a first timer and he asked if I would play with him and his friend. His friend brought a unicycle and was riding that between holes. He was also only throwing rolling discs.

I only played about 3 holes with them but it was pretty funny. Some drunks walked by and made fun of them and then told him he over stepped his putt.
