What was your Shot of the Day?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Played my first of the season today with my dad. Was a nice 9 hole walk on a surprisingly dry course. I hit a lot of good shots today but my best was a knock down 7 from 120 into a stiff headwind. Managed some good rhythm and stuck it to 3 feet.

Got my flu shot today, only good shot that will be happening for a while. Unfortunately it wasn't a "really strong one"  that will prevent Covid-19😀

17th hole at Eagle Ridge Golf Course, just outside Jackson, MS. I hit 6 iron off the tee, and had 107 to the pin, slope included, with a breeze off the right. Pulled the 58*, and hit the ball to 3 feet. Best hole of the day! Both shots were pure, and went exactly where I wanted them to.

Great shot,
Better man than me, couldn’t do what you do.

Neither can I - it’s called Divine intervention.

I made two birdies today, you’d think it would be one of those but it was actually a tough par save that rebooted my round, after an even par front I doubled 11 and bogeyed 12, duck hooked my drive on 13 but had a lie, pin was back left over a trap blocked by trees, 210 into the wind. I hit 3 wood over a small tree just where I was looking off the right side of the green, pitched to 5 feet, rolled the putt in and played the last 5 holes 2 under.

Not so much a shot - it was how I played all 4 par 5’s - text book - perfect drives, great layups, had some sort of little wedge into all 4 and had a good look at birdie all 4 times, made 2, shot 76.

Shot of the day was definitely this 5 iron on #9. I've never really even come close to hitting this green in two, but the swing changes I'm working on have added a little distance to my bag and given me a TON of confidence in my long irons. It's extremely rare for me hit my long irons pure, but I did it 3/5 times today. This 5 iron gave me my only birdie of the round and had I read a little less break into the putt, it could have very well been an eagle (missed by <1ft on the high side).

Early in my round I had 176 to the syick but needed a big draw ti get out from behind a tree ti get there. It didnt draw and it cost me. Later in the round I had a similar shot but had 185 ti the stick so I pulled my 5i. Closed thr face mire. lined up right more and let it rip. Ended up a couple feet past pin high and 12 feet or so from the pin.  Sweet revenge.

 I have been working on a new swing, which I call the furek. Similar to Jim’s swing, but way less of everything. But anyways, I caught a 7 iron as pure as the wind driven snow on a 176 par 3 (wind aided and downhill a bit) and it went to back of green. 
nuthin like a pure hit...

Had a couple sand saves today- decent outs and my putter has been pretty solid with the 8-10 footers to complete the saves

Shot of the day today: 

One of my better drives today. I had about 145 to the front of the green, up the hill, and into the wind.

I promptly laid the sod over it with a 7, and advanced the ball 39 yards per Arccos 😪

Pulled a PW for third and stuck to it to 5 feet....

Then missed the par putt. Ugh.

Partner and I played in men's league. Got down to the last hole where I needed par to hit average and get a point. Also the player I'm going against was tied with me and at best we were a stroke up. Needless to say the 7 footer I had was a huge putt. Started it just left edge and dropped it dead center. Even though my opponent matched, it felt great knowing I made the putt to seal the victory and a few points for our team.

Hit an 8 iron from a fairway bunker 145 yds from the green to within 3 ft of the pin on a par 4.  Sank the put for a bird. One of two birds yesterday. Was a good day on the links.

We will not discuss the shot that put me 62 yards passed and left of the flag from 140 yards in the center of the number 6 fairway, but I ended up perched on the side of the number 7 tee box. With this: IMG_3159.JPG
The picture looks flat but I am standing 3' above the ball the hills are up 10' down 3' up 3' and down 4'. The ball is on a slope where my right foot is just below my left knee height. Also it is held on the slope by clumps of wiry grass in front of the ball but clean access to the back.
The flag is on the far side left of the green with 6' before the lake and the green sloping right and into the lake.
With the trees I had no chance of going high so I decided a bump and run 7 iron hooked around the tree to the top of the hill between the 2 bunkers and hopefully stop it on the lower tier for a chance at par. One of my opponents had 4' for birdie so I had nothing to lose.
I hit the chip and thought it was as good as I could have done. It crossed the hill and out of sight at the speed I wanted and on line so I stepped over to the cart to grab my putter when the other 3 guys went nuts.
I can't quote exactly what they yelled, or I will be censored, other than "Look! He doesn't even care, he's f^The guy with the 4' birdie putt was so upset he pulled his putt and griped about it the rest of the day. I also chipped in on 1, 12 and 13 that day but they were straight forward shots just off the green.
