    I just don't get it. Snap/lose a club and you have a £50-£200 bill to pay. I'd rather spend that cash on my kids.

    I can understand (just) snapping a shaft but losing a club and trying to source a replacement, especially on older models seems daft

    I played a few months ago with a guy who hit a terrible shot on the par 3 14th hole, he then tossed his club into the dense woods and I asked him if he wanted to throw provinial club coz the first one was sure to be lost.

    One of my putters is in the lake by the 18th green at Pyrford alongside the four koi carp. I told my playing partners it was going in there a few holes earlier and one of them had the head cover first. It had been on the BBQ a year before so it hadn't learned its lesson. Now it swims with the fishes.

    Handed both into the pro shop.


    costly fits of temper for two players!
    On reflection, it could be that, in each case, the golfer was in the gorse and took in a couple of clubs as he was unsure what to play. Having decided which club to use, he put the other down while he took his shot ... and just forgot. Admittedly not as likely as a tantrum.

    Oi, we don't do serious explanations or sensible probabilities, they were chucked in anger, ok 😜

    As Canary kid says

    The assumption is that they were chucked in.

    A players takes two clubs with him when looking for the ball, puts one down while playing with the other and forgets to take them both back.


    Been there, done that and got the tee shirt.
