What was your Shot of the Day?

A great recovery shot! 

After hitting a great drive into the middle of the fairway, I managed to block my 8i way right. I was up against a tree, but on the edge of the cart path! I’m 15-20 yards short right, my relief wasn’t great, I need to chop it out and our greens are lighting quick right now. So my plan was to hit it into the mound to slow it down, hop on, hope for the best. It worked out exactly how i planned, and I drained the 10 ft downhill slider to save par!

I hit everything so well today, it’s hard to pick.  

#14 - I hit a full SW from about 109 yards to 3 inches. (yes, I made the putt!)

#18 - Standing on 18 tee, I am tied with two others for the lead.  I knew I needed to birdie the 600 yard uphill, upwind par 5.  A decent drive and second left me 180 out.  I hit a decent approach shot, and that left me about 30 feet away.  Of course, the two guys tied with me and about 40 others were loitering around 18 green, watching me come in, and everyone was expecting a playoff (myself included).  But I drained my downhill, 30 foot double-breaker for the win!

Last night in our Wednesday night game playing hole number 6, it played about 500 yards. (About 510 on the card) the app shows it just about 500. I made a 2, Double Eagle (Albatross).  It was crazy. I didn’t know it went in at first, I saw it land on the front of the green and bounce up, it looked like it landed just behind the flag and was blocked from our view so we couldn’t see it, my buddy said, I think that went in, I moved off to the left to see if could locate it behind the flag, and I didnt see it so it had to have gone in, as we got closer it was very apparent that the ball was in the cup.

Congratulations on the albatross! That is a round making, year making kind of shot.

My shot of the day wasn’t anything TOO exciting but it was memorable for me. 130 yds out, 7-8’ uphill to the pin, and I hit a nice, straight 9 iron shot. Landed a couple feet from the cup and rolled away to about 12’. Two putted for par. The memorable part? There was a gentleman standing to the left if the green that watched it all happen and complimented me on my approach shot as I walked up. It happened to be the club pro so the compliment felt like it had some extra substance to it.

Hole 14, par 3, 166 yards downhill. Plays closer to 155. Hit a 8 iron a tad thin, but almost holed it. Then proceed to miss the 4 footer for birdie 😂

Hit my approach a hair too long and went about 5 feet off the steep end of the green, which was a good backstop, but is now an ugly downhill return approach. So I hit a half speed flop that landed pin high and stopped dead where it landed. Missed the par save, but the funny part was all the guys all went “NooOooooOOOoooo,!! when i took the big swing, and when it landed and stopped dead they changed to into a “whooooooOoOOOoo!,!! Then we all busted up laffing..😆

Jarred a 30 yard chip, then flopped a 50 yarder over a tree to a foot. These are the types of shots that turn a mediocre round into a decently good round

the Hogan equalizers are getting it done

Some might disagree but I hit my 3 iron 228 yards over the bunker. I usually don't make it to that bunker with my 3 wood. Absofuckinglootly crushed. The ball flight was high and straight as an arrow. I was pumped I hit my iron that far and the second shot it wasn't terrible either. The image shows infront of the bunker but I was over the back.

Was 155 out, sidehill lie in the rough with the ball below my feet. Tree trunk in front left of me, tree branches hanging directly in front. Needed to hit the ball low and also account for the ball potentially going right off the sidehill lie. Hit a low shot got a good bounce, landed on the green. Missed the birdie putt but made par.

Gotta go with PW from 116 to within a foot, second place a 4 UiHi onto the green on the hardest hole, and last but not least, a short flop from the side of a hill off the right edge of the green. No more than 20 feet, but the way it landed so softly was sweet. I did one like that last week, and I need to figure out how I’m doing that...

I pulled off a crazy flop!  I'm on a 507 par 5, great drive followed by a long 2nd shot into the green side bunker.  The green is elevated 8 feet straight up from the bottom of this bunker... and the tiny green rolls downhill away from me.  I usually use a 54* wedge from the beach, but I grabbed the 60* and opened it all the way.   I hit an explosive shot 15 feet into the air with so much spin that it spun backwards 2 feet and stopped just short of the pin.  I tapped in for the bird, and my buddies were still talking about it this morning... might have been the best shot I ever made.  I should add that the sand in the bunker was compact from rain, and the ball was sitting up nicely!

This was the hole of the day for me. Par 5, dogleg right. You want to hit it up the right side and turn the corner. First shot, I hit it pretty much online but maybe a yard too much right (maybe even just 1 foot too far right). Hit the tree guarding the right side of the fairway and took a bounce dead left but landed in the fairway. Lost at least 40 yards on my drive, hence the 200 yard drive. Left me with 300 yards out, so decided to play it smart, two clean 7 irons in a row, second one was a bit long, but still on the green. 69 foot putt for birdie, hit it to 2 feet. Made par.

The 16th at Greystone Links is a 550 yard par 5 that didn't offer much for a second shot into the green.  Driver was toed and ended up left of the fairway and left me with a blind shot into a dogleg left and elevated green that slopes severely left into the marsh.  I had 250 in so that essentially made my decision for me, a 3 shot par 5...So on my 3rd shot approach, I tried to get too cute which left me right of the green on the high side in the fescue.

Hit a sweet wedge that landed right on the first cut and rolled to 6" and believe it or not, drained it for a 5.  This hole is always feast or famine for me.

Played 18 this morning with dad before the rain arrived. I had a couple good shots but the best was my drive on the 16th. 300 from the blue tees at Ravenwood I landed it just short and should have aimed a little left 😜. Missed the eagle and walked away with a tap in birdie.

Hit a knockdown PW from 108 yards on the opening hole, par 4, into the wind 6 feet beyond the hole. Ball skipped once then spun back directly into the cup for an eagle 2.

Hit some really nice shots today, but my overall score wasn't good. Probably what i would consider my best shot of the day is a 4 wood from 235 yards out. I was still short of the green by about 10 yards, but it was one of my first times using a fairway woods off the deck (i'm a fairway wood newb). The ball was above my feet, which is usually a disaster for me with any club. Caught it a little thin, so it ended up being a low line drive, but it was straight and went far.

Besides that, I hit an approach shot to within 5 feet and then of course went ahead and missed the birdie putt.
