What was your Shot of the Day?


Recommended Posts

My best shot wasn't so much a stellar result as it was satisfying execution.

I'd pushed my drive right on 18 and was down a hill with tree trouble, 190 out uphill. My only choice, other than punching out, was a low and significant cut under and then around the tree's branches.

Grabbed 5-iron and flushed it. Couldn't quite turn it enough to land the green but turned it plenty, it came to rest just a few yards left off the fringe. Got up and down for par but par would've been out of the question without that approach shot.

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

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

Almost had my first hole-in-one...

It's cool to have Arccos to show the shot.

After trying to flight down a 4i into a pretty strong wind and totally hitting it straight up into the air, I was left with a pretty stock 8i. Stuck it decently close .

Chipped in from about 5 yards off the green, but the cool part is that I chipped in last week from almost the exact same spot. And I chipped in on another hole a few games ago too. Not my strength so quite happy about all of them!

Last Sunday when I played, I hit a bomb,290, right down the pipe. I know that may not be very far for some people on here, but I was pleasantly surprised. I obviously hit the sweet spot on that shot. The straightness of the drive was very nice to see as well.

Hole 8 at my home course (hardest hole). To take that line you have to get it up pretty high to clear the trees. Most lay up, I never do, sometimes it works and sometimes it don’t. I played it perfect, couldn’t hit a better drive than that. IMG_0213.JPG

made around a 20 foot putt to save bogey on the last hole at French Lick. Broke about 6 inches and dropped dead center. Great way to end a round.

Sheesh- that’s a bomb period. For me to get it 290, I need warm, dry, downhill, and with the wind. But every now and then..... bam!

My shot of the day today had to have been my green side bunker splash to within 12” to save par. I really had to take a half swing and just clear the upper lip, and then it dribbled down to the cup. I shouldn’t have been in there anyway after a killer drive which left me 104. I don’t know why I swung the SW instead of the gap W. But it all worked out in the end...

I feel like I'm rapidly approaching those days myself, but I get lucky now and then.

My second par of the day. 176yd par 3. I hit the draw that I envisioned to pin high just to the right. Burned the edge of the cup with my first putt.

I was really happy to drop the par putt as I had trouble most of last season on this hole. IMG_0948.PNG

Par 5 second shot 185 yards uphill (about 20-25 feet elevation change).

 

7wood.

 

In the hole for an albatross. Didn't see it go in though. Kids selling used balls 40 feet from green said itt land softly 10 feet before and rolled dead center.

Longish par 4 into the wind with soggy conditions. Left drive in the right rough. 176 yards to center pin with Id guess a 30 to 40 foot tree to go over about 35 yards in front of me. 

Normally I would flight down a 4i in these conditions but no way to get it over or under the tree comfortably. Pulled a 5i and ripped it pin high to 10-12'. Missed putt. lol

Yesterday, 11th hole, Par 5. Second shot I had 272 to the middle. I grabbed my 3 wood and hit the best shot ever off the deck with it! It hit the front edge, popped-up in the air, and settled 12 feet below the hole! I missed the eagle, of course!!!

I laid-up with a 5w off the tee and struck it to dead-center about 200 down range. Blasted a 3w 210-yds over the water, but left into the green-side trap. The shot was my 3'rd using my 60* well flat from maybe 25'. Hit the stick and it dropped dead 3" from the hole for a "gimme" par. Damn, I love this 60!🤩

I'm struggling to pick a good shot today, but technically the best hit shot I hit today went in a lake. That pretty much sums up my round.

Played just awful at the new "club", but I hit a very nice 4 iron 182 yards to just short of the green. That's a big hit with a 4 iron for me.

Have a new to me TM mid rescue 4h I'm new still learning my ball flight on.  Thanks to a bad drive on a par 5,  my 2nd shot left me  about 195 to a middle back pin.  Usually hitting wedge on my 3rd shot.  Uphill lie, over a creek, and I had to draw it just a hair around the 150 marker.  Let er' rip and she ended up 15 feet short of stick.  2 putt par which is good on this hole as I've been struggling with it as of late.
