What was your Shot of the Day?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So I was hitting the ball good, but my score was horrible. Hole 16 short par 4, 350 ish, but it's a dogleg left with water that can be reached and it's a pretty tight driving area too far left you go in the trees, to far right also into the trees. Well I hit it high off the toe and hit a nice high fade into the trees on the left, the only shot I had was to punch out to the fairway, but my round was done so it really didn't matter. So I look up and there is a hole in the tree about the size of a small car tire, and I thought why not, if I pull it off it's incredible, if not, it's just another lost ball. No big deal. I had 135 to the flag from that angle, but I had to get this thing up high really fast, so I took 9i. Standing in the pine needles, opened up just a little to hopefully get the ball up, and I flushed it, the best contact on the ball all day, and it went exactly where It had to otherwise it's in the water, I knocked it to 12 feet, my putting was atrocious today, but did make par. After I swung, I just started laughing, because there was absolutely nowhere to hit the ball except for the small opening, and I did it. It was the only bright spot of my round today so it was nice

First hole in One ever today. 173 yard Par 3 Forth at Ko’olina Golf Course in Hawaii. Slightly up hill so I pulled a 5 iron. The ball was on the flag from the time it left my club. I thought it

150 ish 7 iron for my first ever hole in one... came from back there over the water and the high lipped sand trap  and went over the pin into the little hill to  the upper tier of t

Every round we play, and even when we have a bad round, we still usually hit a few shots that we actually tried to do.   I had a 210 yd lie in the bark, under a big tree, with little trees in front

No there were 3. The guy riding in my cart who was 15 feet away looking at me saying how are you going to hit it on the green there isnt anywhere up there to hit it, the other 2 were in the fairway. In order to laser the flag I had to get down on my knees to look under the trees. It was one of those shots where you look like a hero if it works, or you look like the biggest idiot if it doesn't. This time it worked.

Went out for a quick nine.

Hole #5 Par 5 516 yds.

Water hazard in front.

Was 100 yards out just to the side of a tree with overhead branches. Played it safe and aimed left to clear the branches and still land it on the green.

Hit the branches and it dropped straight down. ok. now the branches are not in the equation.

52 degree wedge again. Plunk. right in the water. Went over and positioned myself 65 yards from the stick.Plunk. In the water again. Instead of hitting for a GIR, I'm hitting over the water for 8.

My shots of the day.

It's amazing how there will always be one bright moment in an otherwise dismal round.

 

I think it has something to do with the realization that it doesn't matter anymore and all of a sudden, there is peace and relaxation in one's soul

5 wood from 195 into a light breeze after a pulled drive and mishit punch out. Flushed it to 8 feet, unfortunately misread the putt. Didn't think I had any chance of getting near a birdie after my tee shot.

Many of you will no doubt know that my approach game stinks, so when I get it right, that usually will turn out to be my "shot-of-the-day".

 

I was a bit s*** off the tee to begin the round and the par-5 #4 playing at 471 was no exception. Skulled the crap out of it and it dribbled to a pathetic halt about 50-yds away. Hit the 3w nice and solid but was left with around 200 in. Hit 5w low but it ran just past the lip of a greenside bunker and on to the back of the green. Made par. :rolleyes:

Hit the best drive of the day to 85 yards out, oh oh. Hate that distance, sculled a wedge into the face of greenside bunker. Hacked it out to 2 feet from the pin easy par!

I think that's what they call a "sand save"...Nicely done Rick! My sand play lately has been garbage for some reason, but every now and again I'll do one right.

Hit a 4 iron 210 with a little draw and hit a 6 iron close to 190 with a little draw.

Been working on a little draw to try to bring my backspin numbers down a bit, thus making the ball go a little further

Hmm, I am racking my brain and struggling to come up with anything.

I almost chipped in 3 times but they were real easy chip and when you only hit 5 greens, you will come close on some chips.

I will go with the flop from 6 feet below the green on 18, to 5 feet to save bogey.

Of late, my scope has been on a draw.

Today I hit some draws, meh. Not much control on them for me other than the driver.

 

Today's favorite shot was the low trajectory approach shot. Think 3/4 punch with extra club.

Hop and stop.

That's exactly right. After I missed a 6 footer for birdie on 11, then missed the short comebacker, I sort of checked out of the round, and just hit the ball, stopped thinking, and just played, I still sucked on the greens, but I hit some really good shots.

18th hole, par 5

Solid drive, solid hybrid, then a 40 yard chip to less than a foot.

thats a nice way to end the round.

Par 4 playing at 378. Narrow off the tee so I hit 3w (poorly) centered but short. Hit 5w dead straight (but also short) to the apron 35' away below the pin. Tried a bump-n-run that went long to just on the back fringe...still 30-35' away.

Holed it!

Mic drop…😎

First hole in One ever today. 173 yard Par 3 Forth at Ko’olina Golf Course in Hawaii. Slightly up hill so I pulled a 5 iron. The ball was on the flag from the time it left my club. I thought it would be close but was amazed as it dropped in the cup.
