Hit With A Golf Ball...Ouch!

Two weeks ago I was out on the golf course and a guy shanked his ball and it nailed me right above my eye. After laying on the ground for a minute, I discovered there was blood everywhere. So I went to the hospital where I got a CAT Scan and 7 stitches and am all fine now except for a scar, which I'm trying to get rid of by using Mederma. Looking back, I'm just so lucky it didn't hit me directly in the eye, temple, nose, or mouth (it was very close). Anyway, it sucked and hurt like a B****. I've been on the golf course for nearly seven years and never had anything close to this happen before.

Does anyone else have a freak accident that happened to them?

That was you?!  duck   Wink

I did hit someone in the ass with a golfball on the driving range once. The thing is, they were standing ahead of the area where you were supposed to hit from. Of course I should have shot better, but if they stood in the correct place, there wouldn't have been a problem. Never been hit myself though.

Not me, but 3 years in succession when my parents were in the US visiting my brother we had

1) my father tore his achilles tendon a couple of weeks before my brother's wedding while playing with the step grandson to be.
2) my father was fishing, caught a sting ray and got spiked in the wrist as he tried to land it. Went very grey apparently.
3) my father was doing some diy and managed to drill through his hand between thumb and index finger. By this time the doctor was saying "not you again".

 Wow!  Wow!

I literally spat my coke out laughing from that!

As for me, I was learning to drive, I was at the parking lot of Fazolis, and Mom threw me the keys to drive home. So She got in, I pull the door open, and in a SECOND i was under the car on my left side. Apparantly there was Ice on the ground, and when I thrusted myself to open the door I lost frcition and just flew under the door. Mom heard me thud, and looked out the door , door was open but I was no where to be found, however my feet were sticking out like the evil witch in Wizard of Oz....  rotfl   rotfl   rotfl   rotfl   rotfl 

I got up and got right into the car, and I noticed i fell right in front of the entire restaurent in front of an open window where everyone could see......

My mom stifling her laughter goes "did you just fall?"

I said "you....shut...it...now"

 ouch

I've never been hit hard with a golf ball before, but I've had a ton of close calls, balls landing within 3 feet of me. I've been lucky I guess.

However, on the flip side, I did hit another person with a golf ball, in the nards no less, on the freaking practice green. I was practicing out of the bunker towards the green and behind the green was a hill that people go over to the parking lot. I sculled one out of the sand and at the same time a fellow was coming from the parking lot and right at the top of the hill it hit him right in the nuts. Not only did I feel bad for doing it, it occured right before a HS golf match against our rival school, so I didn't hear the end of it for a long time.

I was in the backyard playing cricket with my brother and he bowled the ball, I took a swing at it, missed the ball which went on and hit me on the toe. The bat swung around and whacked myself in the head and lost my balance and fell on the stumps.

I got hit by a flying hockey puck on the inside of my thigh once. Didn't really hurt much, but left a bruise. A little higher and it would have been trouble, though.

Almost like one of the early scenes in Caddyshack where Rodney Dangerfield hits a shot, rather queitly says "Fore", and drills the judge right in the nutsack and then says "Shoulda' yelled 'Two.'" One of my favorite movies and your little incident reminded me of it.

I've had some near misses on the golf course before (and once from a foul ball at a Red's game) but fortunately, no direct hits.

lol I have not been hit but the driver of my cart was hit pretty damn hard by my own group.

We had just finished the first tee, just putted and just got into our cart. From about 200+ yards back with a very slight dogleg to the left is the green. The cart path is a circle at this point and is head on from the fairway. He just leaned forward and suffered a direct hit to the shoulder. If he hadn't leaned forward at that exact moment, I would have taken the hit to the skull.

Imagine being hit at full throttle from a perfectly hit 3 wood. Ya, he hurt. I laughed. We drank. Life is good.

Take a pic of your war wound and post it! If we can read Nike, or Calaway or..., Ill be impressed Just kidding. Happy Healing man  bigthumbsup

Not quite an accident, but damn close!

I was at my son's Track/field practice for his school. They were throwing the discus (i think thats how you spell it?) back and forth while i sat in the stands and tried to figure out my new camera. So eventually i heard someone scream "Look out!" and i just put my head in my knees......the thing flew about 2 inches over my head from what ive heard  scared

I nailed a 911 turbo's rear window once. I also hit a goose, I was actually aiming for it.  Smile I was once sitting in a friends house when a ball came through the window, scared the crap out of us. He has since put up GE lexon due to all the golf ball incursions. My mom once took out a bird in flight.

I have a similar golfing story, but it wasn't myself who got hit...

I used to go golfing on a 9 hole course with my old next door neighbour before he passed away when i was a kid.. I used a driver and hit my first ball and messed it up totally, he took his shot then started walking down the fairway... I took another shot with my driver whilst he wasn't looking.. and smack, right in the back of the legs....

Needless to say he didn't ever go in front of me again..  covereyes   innocent

Me, my ex, and her father were putting when suddenly she gets dropped. Never heard/saw it coming. Right between the shoulder blades. Actually gives her pain to this day, but all things considered, it could have been worse as it could have literally done spinal damage.
The topper was the bastard that hit the ball walks up to the hill above our green (he could not see us from where he hit it) and yells "Anyone see a ball come this way??!!", as she is lying face down on the green sobbing, almost screaming.

Been there, done that as a catcher...I guess I was a really really good catcher. Anyways, I had to ride my bike home after, not the most pleasant times.

Not a personal experience but once in rounders (oh what a fun sport) my friend was batting at the time and was having an argument with the bowler and the bowler decided to say something really harsh (while ago so i don't remember) and everyone was a bit "OOOH cussss" about it, and when my friend swung for the ball she accidentally hit the bowler in the face, with the rounders ball, lucky for her it was only a tennis ball but ahhhhh was that a good sight.

Unluckily, the bowler's mates have been out for my friend ever since...
Fun P.E. lessons.

Fortunately, i've never experienced anything as much as a golf ball.
