On the tee box getting ready to drive when we hear 2 riders on motorcycles start street racing. We can see the street from the tee box. Just before they come into view we hear them get off the throttle and also hear metal scraping pavement. One guy flies past our field of view and then shortly the other arrives, sliding on the pavement with his bike on its side. He crossed the intersection of a side street and his bike hit the curb on the other side and flipped him up, over the street sign. He landed in the weeds and didn't move so we dropped our gear and ran over to see if there was anything we could do. There wasn't, he didn't survive. None of us felt like finishing the round.

Definitely not a nice situation, but I did give it a nice.
As a State Trooper for 25 years I saw a lot of dead bodies, mostly from car accidents...NEVER nice.

I think the worst for me was playing a course just outside of Harrisburg, PA (this was many years and pounds ago), and I went to retrieve my disc from the edge of the creek (it was OB but maybe by about a yard). Unbeknownst to me, when I slid down the embankment to the creek, I slid on some poison. Now normally I break out in small rashes at poison ivy, but this must have been oak or sumac. I broke out a day later so bad that I needed antibiotics and a few days off of work. I just couldn't stop the pus. I don't wish that on anybody.

Not really horror, but things that make you go...what now?

A course my co-workers and I play often, when in the area, seems to be THE place to take pictures. Engagement, senior, family, newborn, etc. pictures. An usually in the first or second fairway, sometimes near the 18th basket. Played that course 10 times and more than half, we've seen (or had to throw around) picture takers.

Not remotely in the same league, but I got a bit cocky when my disc landed in a somewhat thin briar patch. I thought I could get in and out without getting too tangled up. I was very wrong. Legs looked I had been attacked by a pack of feral cats.

Ditto. I've had incurred a few minor injuries on the course, some of which were the result of particularly clumsy and/or embarrassing moves on my part.*

But never anything that that couldn't be handled with some peroxide, antibiotic ointment, and some bandages, or a few days of rest.


*To that end, a few years ago, I started accepting that I'm simply not as agile as I used to be. Now, I'm more likely to walk around obstacles like fallen trees, etc, than stepping or climbing over them like I used to - specifically in hopes so I don't have to add to this thread.

Round these parts... in tourneys before covid times... we hand out the;

Smooth Move Award

To the person incurring the largest injury or stupidity on the tourney weekend... its been gi ven to people who broke ankles, fell of teepad... this one time...

There was a guy who lost his license drinking and driving on Friday, Saturday night he was hitching a ride with his buddy.. Who got pulled over, possibly under the influence haha, so he strips naked and runs down the street... the cops leave his buddy alone and chase him down the road. He spends the night inthe drunk tank and his buddy doesn't get a DWI
