WTF!!!!!! Almost got hit with a golf ball!!!!!

As if ducking idiot drivers weren't bad enough. Be careful riding through Tom Bass on that narrow road between the the golf course and the walking trail along the lake. Some dude sliced his shot and the ball bounce in front of my front wheel. I guess the plus side is that I had my gear on just in case he did hit me.

a golfer didnt almost hit me, but i was coming into my neighborhood today and a little (about 8yrs old) threw what looked like a golf ball at me. i didnt think i could stop and u turn so fast. after i scared the out of him myself, the expression on the little face when i marched his up to his dad was almost worth him throwing the ball. even better, i know the dad and that boy is surely set up for an whoopin.

Dude, what is it with kids and golf ? This in the neighborhood adjacent to ours was hitting golf over his fence into our neighborhod and my neighbor's wife's mazda DEAD CENTER in the windshield. Luckily, some kids heard the bad azz kids from their back yard and let us jump to fence to confront them. My neighbor Fred (who rides a chromed out ZX12) knocked on the door and just held up the golf ball. The look on that idiot kid's face was priceless. Needless to say, his father had to un- $300.

When we used to live on the golf course there would always be golf near the back of the yard.. I would just wait till people were out there playing golf and wing them back to them with a baseball bat. They were miraculously able to control their slices a bit better after a few weeks of having golf volleyed back at them
