Bonehead “Influencer” Busted for Hitting Golf Ball into Grand Canyon

Been awhile since I’ve posted a “bonehead of the week” post. How dumb do you have to be to hit a golf ball AND throw your club into the Grand Canyon, then post it on your social media?

Bonehead of the Week – Errant Tee Shot

I live fairly close to my home course. My place is about five houses down the street from the 8th hole.  On the way to work this morning I couldn’t help noticing a golf ball in the gutter.  See below.

The home in the background sits about 10 yards from a fence.  Roughly 30 yards on the other side of the fence is the green of the par-3 8th.  The 8th plays about 150 yards for the average player, 175 for better players.  This tee shot, on a 150-175 yard hole, finished about 80-100 yards left, out of bounds of course.

Naturally I stopped and grabbed the ball.  It’s a cheapo Callaway golf ball.  It will come in handy on my next range session, in 2020.

Bonehead of the Week – Golfers Target Jaguar Driven onto Top Golf Driving Range

Thanks to for the bonehead of the week report of a Jaguar driver who found his way onto a Top Golf driving range in Houston.  He then, of course, became a target for the golfers.  Sounds fun.


A man in a white Jaguar gave a new meaning to the term driving range last Saturday.

Houston police said they went out to Top Golf along the Katy Freeway and State Highway 6 after a man reportedly started driving his car over the course.

Viewer Josh Putt sent Local 2 pictures of the car. Putt said patrons apparently made the Jaguar a target, and began pelting it with golf balls.

Workers were eventually able to corral the car into a corner with a ball-collecting cart.

A security guard detained the driver and called police, but no one was arrested.

I wonder if the driver politely asked to play through?

Bad 9-11 Golf Course Promotion Idea – Other Suggestions

Yesterday the web and social networks were buzzing with with a large backlash over a 9-11 promotion a Wisconsin golf course advertised. The “12th Anniversary of 9-11” ad offered a round of nine holes for $9.11 or 18 holes for $19.11.

Many thought this was in poor taste, as did I. The course received so much bad press and so many negative social comments that they offered an apology, then saying they’d donate the proceeds to a 9-11 charity. Now it seems they’re considering closing the course today (9/11/13).

I have some other bad golf marketing suggestions this course can try throughout the year:

Columbine High School Massacre Madness Sale

Hurricane Katrina Disaster Discount

Kennedy Assassination Pricing, $19.63 per round

Pearl Harbor Pricing, $19.41 per round

Titanic Golf Savings, $19.12 per round
