Don’t drink too much on the course…

Drinking on the course relaxes you, makes you laugh, and sometimes… it helps you get your head stuck in the trash can.

Here’s what the culprit, 49-year-old Dave Sayers had to say:

“We were coming to the end of the day and I had been losing it a bit with a few bad shots. We’d all had a few beers,” he told The Telegraph. “I said, ‘I’m going to bin these clubs’ but they wouldn’t fit. I decided to go a step further … I went to put my head in the bin, but then I couldn’t get it out.”

Let this serve as a warning to you all. Don’t drink too much on the course this weekend!
