I’m guessing it’s tough if the ball falls off the tee during the swing?

1st tee for me today, driver, coming down to hit the ball it starts falling over 🤯 amazingly I thought I made good contact and off it flew... turned around and all my partners are looking in shock on how I actually hit it! But after all the banter.. no-one has looked where it went 😖 blob first hole

Yes, tough. You made your stroke and it counts.
If you had realised soon enough and pulled out or steered your club past the ball, it wouldn't have counted

The Tiger and the bird defence! At the Masters.
Good luck with that with most ordinary golfers
“Yes lads I deliberately missed because the ball was falling off the tee”
Don’t think mere mortals have the reactions to play that shot/miss but you never know.

I hadn't seen this happen for years but in the last month I've seen it happen twice!

In both caes the guy made decent contact and it went straight, if not very far.

Wonder if the soft ground makes the tee move?

“One!”

*much laughter ensues*
Just in case anyone doesn't know, it is compulsory, should a ball fall off a tee when no stroke is made, for some bright spark to come out with this ...
They then wonder why they have trouble walking to their ball with their 9 iron shoved where the sun don't shine!!!

I was on a mat, it was just wind 💨
Or maybe I’d not pushed the castle tee far enough in... but I’m sticking with the wind theory
