There’s No Time To Yell Fore! To Yourself

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.

One of the biggest draws to playing golf is spending time with your buddies. More often than not, that camaraderie includes some good-natured ribbing, a little trash talk and some friendly competition. There’s also the onus we instinctively put upon ourselves to show up our friends or prove them wrong.

So when something happens like the video above, it’s literally adding insult to injury when you have a friend who pulls out his phone and says, “Don’t hit yourself in the face.”

If there’s a bright side for the down and out golfer, if the sound is to be trusted — and we hope it is for his sake — the two click sounds in quick succession lead us to believe that the ricochet hit his sunglasses and not his flesh. Sure, there could be some collateral damage, either to the glasses themselves or where the impact pushed them onto his face, but it could have been much, much worse.
