I've been playing golf for 27 years and have had mud on the ball several times before but today was a first for me. It was the second shot into a long Par 5. From the right side of the fairway there was a noticeable clump of mud on the left side of the ball. I remember hearing talk about Mud balls when I'm watching the Tour on TV but i've never experienced it myself. I figured the mud would just fly off at impact and the ball may fall short or go a little off line but Wow was I surprised when I laced what felt like the best hit 3 wood I could hit and the ball started right at the flag then while still climbing about 100 yards of the club it just went dead right. Not a slice or a push I'm talking 90 degrees to the right to never be seen again into the trees.
Has anyone else ever experienced this?
