What was your Shot of the Day?

Absolutely CRUSHED the 3 wood today. I usually hit my standard shot around 240-250 with a light draw off the tee. This particular swing flowed & connected SO clean with the ball mark dead center after. This is the reason I use my 3 wood off the tee a lot more than my driver. Now if I can get my driver swinging like this, my long game will be set for life.

Par-3 145 with a crazy A$$ green. A foursome was letting me play through. I get up to the tee swing a nice light 9 iron. It flies right over the pin land 12 feet over and spins back down the slope to 2 feet. After I hit they said to me "strange action you've got there; kinda like John Daly". Yes, exactly only difference is I am 300 pounds lighter.

Par 5 ..2nd shot ended up in trees in the right rough about with about 140 to the stick. Thought I would punch out leaving as n easy wedge shot and hope to get up and down. After looking over the shot i said to myself "i got this". Opened uo an 8iron just enough to clear the low left side of the tree and set up to cut the ball in. Played it perfectly but about a club as short as i expected as I didnt think a 7 would clear the tree. My game shots are expanding as I woulda have normally punched out to a likely bogey. Instead I played a s*** I work on on had a 2 putt par.

Hit a 315 yard drive on a par 5 dead center. Followed up by smashing an 8i to the green to leave me with a 25'(roughly) eagle putt. It ended up short by about 2' but putted our for birdie.

Holed a chip from 30' this morning (distance from GPS).

 

Recent practices have been a lot of 1 on 1 time with my wedge. It felt even better thinking it's helping.

I guess the 300 yard drive that I crushed to 58 out. What y'all don't need to know is that I missed the green and made bogey. 😱😬

I've been on the DL, so I'll have to give you a shot from a while ago.

 

 

Despite our short New England season, there are more golf courses, private and public both, all within 45 minutes of my home, than I could possibly count off the top of my head.

 

Curiously, none of the public courses are muni facilities. The George Wright Golf Course within the city limits of Boston itself, roughly an hour from me, is the only muni that comes to mind.

 

Most of the public courses are laundromats for local "legitmate businessmen," which makes them somewhat of a bargain because they don't actually have to make a profit on their own.

 

 

A really nice one is less than twenty-minutes from my front door. It's a gorgeous 1906 Donald Ross layout which was private but the equity members, a touch less affluent than those at several other nearby private clubs, couldn't really keep it up.

 

One of those aforementioned legitimate businessmen took it off their hands. It was closed for a massive restoration which took three years Housing on also purchased abutting land was under construction at the same time. I would not have believed that natural earth and landscape could be worked the way this property was worked. These people, for all intents and purposes, recreated 1906. Modern ball be damned, all reworked holes were restored to their original locations and dimensions. Reopened in 2009, it looks like it looked when Donald Ross left it.

 

I was five years old the first time that I saw the place. My youngest uncle, my dad's little brother, got married and they had the wedding reception there. I was mesmerized by the shear beauty of the place, and I'm sure that the seminal urge to take up golf was born at that wedding.

 

 

Curiously, I have not played the course since it reopened. The last time I played it, my 44-year-old son was eight years old and pulling my Bag Boy. I shot 37 on the front only to shoot 48 on the back. My boy still talks about my barefoot pitch into the eighteenth green, played from the back seat of a four-door Lincoln convertible in the parking lot (remember those?). The car had tufted leather upholstery, and the ball came to rest in a tuft, this preventing it from rolling to the seatback and costing me an unplayable lie. For a horrible back nine, it wasn't a bad shot, although it did tear a leather button out of the tuft.

 

 

The place was private then, and I wasn't invited back. My host had a fatal heart attack a year later.

 

 

If I get back in action as I plan, I'm going back to play it again.It's now 1906 short, which is just the right length for a golf course to be.

No 300 yard drives here nor did I see any although my opponent was quite long. Not many 300 yard drives these days here unless you carry it that far a sea level - it's very wet.

 

My third hole, blocked drive, hit tree, took several (but not 5) minutes to find - thick lie148, had the punch a 7 iron through a narrow alley onto the green and hammered in the 20 footer for birdie.

 

But I think the ball would still be rolling had it not gone in. Harbinger of things to come, I never got the speed of the greens and hit people to of blocks.

Played Moose Ridge in South Lyon, MI for the first time. I hit a good tee shot, but the huge tree in the middle of the fairway knocked me down. I had 246 to the flag on the par 5 18. Hit a 3 iron with a fade that landed just short and left and rolled across the green to about 2ft. for eagle.

Can't get over how well I am finally hitting my long irons. This was from today. The hole is slightly downhill, but absolutely pured this shot.

Amidst a large number of mediocre to downright crappy shots .. including two that found bunkers .. I then had two (of two) actually good bunker shots! Out in one and headed towards the hole so happy with those (but, no, did not make the putts...).

 

Had a nice shot from 100 out but behind a tall tree that completely blocked my view of the green. Launched the ball up and over the tree and onto the back of the green behind the pin (but, no, did not make that putt either ... not a good putting day).

Let me set the stage..

Par 4 280 drivable.

I pull out the driver.

Step up to the tee.

Tee up the ball.

Stand over it, and take a rip at it.

BAM!

It hits the tree in the left rough 20 yards in front of me. Rebounds in to the tree in the right rough and drops straight down... Exactly what y'all thought was gonna happen, right?

Anyway after a whopping 20 yard drive. I have 260 pull out the 3W and from under the tree, I hit my shot of the day. Pure strike bounces once, rolls up to 10 feet for Birdie.

Missed the putt of course but......

OK here's a different one...

A few days ago I pulled the first tee shot left, it ended up literally between a rock and hard place ... a foot in front of a very large boulder and directly under a very large fallen tree limb ... that was too low for me to stand under...

 

So....

 

Back against the boulder, crouched down under the limb, and take as much of a swing as I can with .. *putter* .. in hand and punch it out through the rough and onto the side of the fairway!

 

I'd like to think that ClubProGuy would be proud ;-)
