    Helicopter Driver

    Ashamed to say I threw my driver today so high into the trees left of our 16th tee it nearly lodged itself up there 🚁

    I had a dreadful front 9, really struggling off the tee but scrambled 13 points somehow with only 2 decent pars and 1 blob.

    Then after an unusual nett par on the 10th by going down our 16th fairway I parred the next 5 holes, mainly due to a good short game after poor but not as bad drives as what I was fighting against on the front 9, and then I stood on the 16th tee after amassing 17 points on the last 6 holes and.........off my ball went miles to the right never to be seen again with my driver closely following it 🚁🚁🚁

    I finished with 30 points, 5 straight back to back pars on some of our most difficult holes (7 in total) only then to implode 😡

    Stupid game 👆

    Did you actually throw it or was it the follow through of your swing that caused your driver to take off?

    I'm surprised he didn't shoot it, or at least blow it up with a custom made pyroflashbang

    thankfully he has calmed down in recent years

    The ball went right, well right and lost, I then launched the driver high into the trees left, there was then an eerie silence as my pp's waited for my next reaction not knowing to laugh, stay silent or commiserate (or run) after 6 really good holes😜
