What was your Shot of the Day?


Sluggo42

Recommended Posts

Had a perfectly executed shot last week during one of my 82 rounds:

Tee shot: fade about 270 yards, landed behind the tree

2nd shot: driver off the deck, aiming to the water left of the green, expecting a flat slice around the tree. Ball ended short in front of the bunker

3rd shot: 1 pitch with my 58 wedge to 3 feet for a birdie putt

1st post on this thread but then I think this was a pretty good 3w. 13th hole at West Lothian SI 4, 416 yard par 4 and playing into a strong 25mph wind.

I pulled my drive a little left and ended up in the semi rough with 215 yds to the front, I fade the ball and with a 3w this can mean 20-30 yds, being up the left the normal shot to the right of the green is blocked by trees.  I'm having an OK round and thoughts are that even if I fade the shot it will drop short and right where there is not a lot of trouble, and hopefully a chip and a putt. I middle the shot right down the tree line, pitches 3 yds on  rolls out to 12 feet.

I have been playing golf for nearly 30 years.  I have never had a hole-in-one.  I have had one albatross but never a hole-in-one.  

Vice.jpg.aa93d8cd8a2de069f8ea2d78bf4da425.jpg

I came this close last night to my first.  I hit a pure 8-iron right over the flagstick from 163 yards.  The pitch mark can be seen in the image.  It spun back, skirting the left edge of the hole, leaving me a 6 foot putt straight back up the hill.  Hard to image being disappointed with a birdie but that's were we are!

Easy one for me.  5 hybrid on #11.  Par 3 that was playing 175.  I put my tee shot about 20 feet away from the cup.  I proceeded to leave birdie put 3 inches short 😵  A close tie would be doing the exact same thing on #8 with an 8 iron.

After having to punch out back into the fairway following an errant drive, I had a 58 yard pitch left.  Gripped down to the metal on the shaft of my 56 degree sand wedge, took a slow back-swing to 9:00 and turned through the ball.  The ball flew on a nice trajectory, hit just left of the pin, and spun to a stop for a tap in par.

Highlight hole of the day, playing irons only (with one hybrid) for the Cobra Connect Challenge:

Yank a hybrid *way* left into the next fairway.

Punch a 5-iron under the wall of trees separating the holes.

Bump a PW that rolls and trundles into the hole for birdie from 47 yards.

Just the way it was meant to be played.

Yeah I was standing right next to the green when it happened! Ran right by me taking to the hole, his the pin bounces around the back of the cup and spins back into the hole. The best part was watching @GolfSpy MPR celebrate like a child who got an official red ryder BB gun on Christmas morning! Good stuff,  my one highlight was a5 iron from 205 that stuck., nothing exciting20200805_161029.jpg.bb71f3114856399392efbbfd075f9001.jpg20200805_161046.jpg.52874d54eb5462fa33d849c5c312ed13.jpg

Here's @Erik-M's shot that he mentioned above. Unlike normal humans, who, when offered a chance to put a 5 iron shot on a tee, he insists on finding a nice patch of grass instead.

I still need more zoom. His ball finished on the right side of the green, pin high.

In the rough on the 18th Par 5. Sidehill hook lie with pin tucked back right. Was able to hit a knuckle cut 3 wood that chased up to about 8 feet for eagle and drained it.

Striped my 3wood down the fairway on 8. Just like I knew what I was doing. Unfortunately my chip onto the green was long so I had to chip it back onto the green. Then promptly left my par putt 6 inches short.

I hit some good ones with my hybrid, too.

I love this game!

Shot of the day from Thursday was a perfect 6 iron. Landed front of the green and rolled up pin high. Best part of this shot was I had to keep it low under a big tree. Saved par after a drop!

I have two and they both happened on back to back shots! First striped my 3 wood 230 right down the middle leaving myself about 100 yards in. I then grabbed a 52 deg wedge and hit a low "skipper" with the ball checking up about 1-2 ft from the hole. Man do I love those tap in birdies!! Especially on the first hole!

My best shot of the day was my drive on 18 yesterday. I recently solved my issue of snap hooks and pulls, which was good and now I have more of a one way miss. But I also started to lose some distance off of my tee shots. Was hitting some drives over the past couple rounds that went only about 200 yards.

On 18, hit a solid straight drive that the guy I played with thought went 280. It was actually 250 yards, but that is a good distance for me.

For the first time ever, I managed a shot over 300 yards with the big stick!

The hole was a 545-yard par 5 with a long forced carry off the tee over a canyon and bunkers awaiting any shot that goes off-line.

 

I caught the ball right in the sweet spot and it went dead straight - based on where it landed it had about 260-270 yards of carry and caught enough of the downslope to keep rolling.

IMG_131CB2B3480D-1.jpeg.700c657dde9c4356844dd203bc995a03.jpeg

I followed that up with a 3-hybrid to 40 yards out, put my wedge shot within 10 feet of the pin, and drained the birdie putt on the toughest hole on the course. Definitely the highlight of the round for me!

Easily my 80 ft putt on the par 5 sixth hole for eagle. I ended up sticking it to 1-2 ft for a tap in birdie. Love those kind of birdies! I guess my purchase of the bettinardi is paying off (or at least ill keep telling myself that) LOL
