It is always when you think you won't hit someone that you amaze yourself and send it straight at them. And you know you couldn't hit them if you had aimed for them.
I have been hit in the calf when a competitor across the other fairway grip-locked a fairway drive 90* the wrong direction. I saw it coming and tried to jump but I'm white, so it still hit me and left a big welt and bruise. I still had to laugh because I fell down when I landed. It had to look hiliarious.
The roles are reversed in this story. I was at a tourament in ann arbor, the first time I ever played in advanced am's. It was also the first tourament in advanced for two other people on my card, quite a coincidence! Everyone on the card was feeling anxious, and there we stood waiting for the 2 minute warning to end. I was last on the card, and I dont remember the names of the other two that threw before me. The horn blows and its game on. So there I am, behind the tee, watching the first throw in advanced am's ready to see a new level of competition. To my horror the fella on the tee grip locks so wildly that he reverse drives... right into my head. My ear to be exact! Talk about pain, it took a while to walk that one off.
