Most embarrassing moment:
When I first started to play golf, I took my future father in law out to play. After stepping up to the tee, I swung my driver as hard as I could in an effort to show off about how good I was. As he looked down the fairway to see this perfectly hit shot he called that he could not see it. A second later, it landed two foot infront of where it was teed, having travelled a 100ft upwards and in the process leaving a huge dent in my driver. He then proceeded to include this story in his speech at my wedding!
