Golfers do some really dumb things when they’re having a bad round. They cuss, they slam and break clubs, they might jump in a water hazard to cool off. Then there’s what 49-year-old Dave Sayers did.
Sayers, who was drunk at a charity golf tournament, decided he wanted to throw away his clubs after a bad round. Instead, Sayers, according to The Telegraph, somehow wound up with his head stuck in a trash can.
“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,” Sayers said. “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.”
The 9-handicap player had his head stuck in the trash can for about 90 seconds as his wife, Allison, and two children looked on, laughing hysterically along with others. Eventually, a couple of folks applied enough Vaseline so that Sayers head could slip back through the opening.
Still no word on if the clubs were still thrown in the trash.
