Is there anything worse than...

hitting the damn basket on a tee off?

Happened to me AGAIN today

Then I lost my favorite putter when I was screwing around after my game...

I think it is worse when you hit the tree 6 feet from the tee. At least more embarrassing.

Yes... Losing your favorite putter is worse than having a drive hit the basket and not stick.

And, Yes... there is something worse than having an ace fall out. Having the ace fall out and roll/fly far enough away that you don't even get a birdie. That suscks.

Ya throwing a bad shot into a tree off the pad is way more funny(or sad) then hitting the baskets!! Depends what side your on and if you had to pay the dollar.

The funny thing, is the putter was lost when I was

teeing off on a hole located next to the parking lot with a short distance, but a severe slope...so I wind up and release a tad late, and it flies into the nasty bramble at the bottom of the hill. On a positive note, I found an unmarked Element near by.

I am still taking hitting half the chains on a tee shot and then having it not go in is worse.

Yeah, the dreaded "almost" Ace. It's like kissing your sister

Yeah, the worst is, you KNOW it's an Ace. You can feel it, almost from the release. Oh my god, it's an Ace. Then it's not. I'd rather hit the tree six feet from the tee.

Getting your foot caught in a wood chipper... way worse
accidently poking your eye out with a lawn dart " "
Getting kidney punched when you're not looking " "
complete destruction due to meteor strike " "
Being a smart ass when someone is trying to be serious......
Oh..... Sorry....

Jarts rocked! Then they had to ruin them by making them look like upside-down Pac-Man ghosts.
