Beginner’s Lesson Leads to a Club in the Water


Golf is a social sport, and we think it’s fun to share golf experiences; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Partnering with our friends at gottaGolf (The Ball Tracer & Social Golf App), SxS is proud to bring you “Golf Fails brought to you by gottaGolf,” a weekly reminder that golf is… really hard.

Growing the game of golf is always at the forefront of the golfing discourse. And while getting new blood into the game, especially women and children, is paramount to its sustained vitality, this video provides a word to the wise: never give a beginner a golf tip around a water hazard.

Lakes, ponds and any other form of hazard is surely to plague any player over their golfing life, so it’s probably best to not introduce them to the debilitating nature it can have straight away. However, the displeasure that comes from splashing a ball into a lake is only surpassed by what this young golfer did above, launching her club some 50 yards behind her back and into the water.

This isn’t the golfer’s fault, it’s whoever is behind the camera teaching her.
