It occurred to me during a rain-sodden day on the golf course that everyone suffers gremlins in their game – but which are the worst?
Are they the ones that cost you a shot or three or merely those that cause acute embarrassment and make you the talk of the clubhouse.
An instant survey was required among my playing partners and those lurking around the bar.
So here are the ten worst shots in a golfer’s repertoire. See if you recognise them. Maybe you would like to add a few more to the horror list on The Forum.
No.10 – The sky-er
Usually with a driver or fairway wood off a tee peg. The deep-faced clubhead slides under the ball, sending it high and nowhere.
Good news – it usually goes straight.
Bad-news – look for an indellible ‘roof’ mark on top of your beautiful club.
