I do NOT have the Family Golf Gene.I hate the sand.
I was playing with my brother who always spotted me two strokes** per hole -- and never lost to me, ever. My ball rolled casually into a deep sand trap. The pin was quite close to the sand trap.
So I figured I had to get the ball UP, but definitely not FAR. Therefore, I got a good grip, and swung sooper-hard -- with the intent to take a lot of sand with the ball lobbing up with it to the green.
Since the ball had simply rolled in, it was sitting right on the very surface. Instead of scooping up a pound of sand, I managed to hit the golf ball with the very edge of my club:
The ball went screaming out of the sand trap, clearing the edge by about an inch. It went nearly a hundred yards, landing on the fairway of a distant hole.
**Technically, he would need a hole-in-one to break even on a Par 3 if I parred.
