The $200 $2.00 putt

The scene: My regular grudge match against the local PGA pro. I’ve beaten him two rounds in a row and won the front nine convincingly. He’s got a putt on #16 to save par, possibly win $2.00 and have some bragging rights. This putt is about a 3-4 footer. I’m closer for par.

They say that golf brings out a person’s inner personality… He somehow misses and throws a fit, throwing his putter up in the air and slamming his hat on the ground. He didn’t realize his $200 Maui Jims sunglasses were on his hat. His putter hits the ground, his hat bounces toward the hole, and his Maui Jims split in two.

Being the opportunist I am, I always carry my camera. I snapped the picture below, which couldn’t have been set up better intentionally. I wait for him to clean up his mess, then I calmly walk up and drain my dagger-in-the-heart putt.

    haha classic! And nice HOGB poker chip ball marker 🙂

    It’s no fun to play with people that can’t control their temper but since you play often with this pro I bet it’s very rare for him to do something like that – eventually it’s bound to happen to everybody.

    Hey, nice job making your putt just to rub salt on it 🙂
