What was your Shot of the Day?


Recommended Posts

Had a couple today - after a weak fade drive hit a great 3 wood that landed high and soft from 247 into a 10 mile wind - playing around 260 I'd say.  Landed on fringe to front pin and had about 15 feet for eagle.  

Also after pulled drive I had trees blocking me into a par 5 so I hooded a 5 iron for a 40 yard hook and was left with 85 yards and a lob wedge from the middle of the fairway.

My shot of the day from my last round was my drive on a basically 90º left dog leg par 4... I picked an aggressive line, and pulled it... but cleared all of the trouble and had a wedge in my hand for my second... We won't talk about what happens next

I have two from today, first was a 30 yard chip and run that got lucky enough to hit the pin and go in. The second was a 250 yard 3 wood into a par 5 that I stuck to 6 feet. That probably would have been my best shot had I made the putt... 🙄

Yesterday hole 14 an uphill dogleg right. Hit a good tee shot and was an 8 iron out. All trouble is on the right and it gets in my head lot (I’m a lefty and will give up and get handsy and hook). Well the time off made me not worry about it and go for it. A solid strike later I was on the green about 15 feet away!

It wasn’t mine, but it was definitely the shot of the day.  Shortish par 3.  I hit gap wedge to 15 feet (tap in for par).  But my playing partner decides he needs to hit an 8iron!!  He hits it 40 yards over the green and nails the side of some poor guy’s house.  It bounces back towards the green and settles on the fringe.   He chips to 12 feet and drained his par putt.

This is my drive on the 18th at Western Skies in Gilbert. It's a short par 4 but with plenty of risk. It's narrow with water all down the right side and 2 bunkers guarding the green. Piped it to the front of the green.

I ended up having to apologize to the group ahead of us because they weren't off the green yet. Luckily the pin was way at the back.


the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

Was 8 over going to nine. After I knocked it over the green on my approach and made bogey on 8, I repeated the mistake when the wind died on me on 9. Dead!!! Flopped my 58 to the perfect spot i the rough and it trickled down to the lip -tap in par. After another nice up and down on 10 rolled in a 15 footer for birdie on 11, another up and down on 12 and then easy par after easy par the rest of the way home for 35 on the back. That par on 9 was the key though.


While 78 isn’t great for me it tastes a lot better than the struggle to break 85 that I was looking at as I walked to the 9th tee.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I could claim it was the 130 yard shot over trees to 15 feet. Or the drive that cleared a bunker and was dead straight, but I think my favorite was the putt on 9. Downhiill left to right and quite quick the 45 footer was going to be rough. I hit it dead smooth and liked the angle, following to see when it would turn over and roll straight down the hill. It turned about 6 feet from the hole and was on a direct line to the hole... at 6 inches I celebrated knowing it was going to drop. Imagine my shock when it ended a revolution short...on a downhill. I tapped in for par but feel I got hosed as it stopped on a dime an inch short.

My twilight round yesterday was going pretty well until the par 5 6th hole.

I push sliced my drive into some thick rough, and the ball was nestled in what looked like the ditch left behind from a mower tire.

I tried to make something resembling contact with a 5iron, and promptly hit 6" behind the ball for an awe inspiring 35yd shot.

Trying to get in front of the green and in the fairway, I pushed my 8 iron left of target, but with a clean look at the green.

And then as one does from 40yds out, dropped the pitch shot. I landed about 10ft from the hole, and it rolled right in.

Short/easy 480yard par 5 with water about 250yds out from the tee. Overcooked a 4iron to the left rough, behind a tree, leaving me about 230yds to the green. One option, I can chip out over the creek and leave myself 180yrds in, OR aim at the bunker 40yds right of the green and hit the Bubba hook (for a righty). Absolutely ripped a 5 iron around the tree in front of me, looked up to see it hooking like crazy, lands middle of the green spins left, leaving me about 10ft for eagle. Missed the putt but I'll never forget that shot!

3rd hole of the day - hit a super skinny drive that left just under 220. Flushed a 4-iron that clipped a big branch in the stand of giant Cottonwoods guarding the right half of the green and it predictably kicked dead right.

I had an open line to the hole, ~25 yds of sticky rough and another ~15 yds of green. But the ball was in a nesty lie and my back was actually against one of the big Cottonwoods. Considered flipping something over and digging it out lefty. Instead, I grabbed the 49*, choked down to the steel and really elevated the handle to try and create a little tree clearance. The ball came out perfect, carried just onto the collar and tracked dead in the heart to inside a foot.

My (3) sight and hearing challenged playing partners this morning took ZERO notice, but I know that one showed some top shelf grit.

Last hole of the day (storm rolled in). Hole 10 par 3 118 yards with my 48 degree. Played the wind almost perfectly, if only I had aimed a fraction more right! 20200529_144715.jpeg You can actually see the storm rolling in behind it haha.

Hole 11, an uphill 208 yard par 3 at Reservoir Creek. My tee shot didn’t fly as low as I had hoped into a decent breeze and landed short left just before the grass bunker. In the photo, you’ll see that’s where the pin was located. 

The shot was a 52 that I landed and checked about 2’ from the pin. I will take a 3 on this hole every time and after tapping in I smiled all the way back to my cart.

From my round Tuesday -

Hole five, which should be a ho-hum par 4, 306 yards, but uphill. Pulled my drive left, had something like 75 yards left to pin but I was looking at a tree.


Pulled out the 54, opened up face slightly and moved it forward. Nice healthy swing (and divot, as pictured) and ball just got up in time to barely clear the tree, clipping a few leaves at the top as it went by. Landed just shy of the green and ran up pretty close to the hole.


Unfortunately couldn't convert the birdie, but I'll walk away with a par all day from where the tee shot was.

My shot of the day was within 3 feet on a par three with an elevated & blind green, to win closest to the pin during our golf league play.  First time I ever won a league challenge hole.
