A Very Expensive Driving Range Prank


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.

The driving range is oftentimes misrepresented. It doesn’t always have to be a place serious golfers go to “dig it out of the dirt,” as Ben Hogan put it. Maybe some guys want to head to a heated bay in the winter time and smack some golf balls. There’s no harm in that.

Inevitably, boys will be boys, which is simply a nice way of saying that groups of friends tend to do some stupid things on occasion. “Stupid things,” however, should not include throwing your driver into the path of your buddy’s swing. Most people just toss a tee or another golf ball to cause a friend to hit one sideways or, if you’re really lucky, whiff. 

It’s just a lose-lose situation to throw quality equipment in there.
