    No one on the green when I played the shot. Even my PP's thought the group in front had moved on, with no players or bags visible. Blinding shot I played too but was emotionally scarred by the reckless vandalism of my ball and failed to make the putt

    Something we have all done at least once.

    Usually it's that perfect angle where all players and bags are hidden and the green looks little lovely and clear.

    Not one of our group could see any bags and all said I was good to go. I'm not good enough to hit a moving target so the old boy was perfectly safe

    Was a good shot. Shame about the putt

    I was emotionally scarred by the attack on my ball. A quivering husk of a golfer

    You have a point. I'm sure you were on the cusp of single figs then??
    Is Chris to blame for the slight hiccup?

    Now that is a very interesting point. Now you've brought it up it could be the source of all my problems. He's scarred me mentally and ruined my game. Where's there's blame........
