10 Terrible Amateur Tree Fails

Golf is game that is played outside on rolling fairways and through scenic — and often wooded — terrain. While trees can oftentimes be a nice accent mark on a hole or course, it’s less than ideal to get stymied by a tree or group of trees. 

With many people going out this weekend to cut down trees for the holidays, here are 10 terrible golfer tree fails that will make these golfers out for revenge against the woods.

There it is…

We get this amateur tree fail list started with this guy and his two buddies out for a friendly round. By the looks of it, he found himself with a hanging lie in the rough and a couple of trees to negotiate. As the saying goes, trees are 90 percent air, so why not take them on. However, judging by his comments, he takes it one step further and claims he didn’t even see them!

After a mighty, unbalanced whack he nails the tree and the ball ricochets right into the cart only to have it come to rest no more than two yards away from where it started. Laughter ensues for good reason.
