What was your Shot of the Day?


Recommended Posts

Today started out shaky and I couldn't put consecutive shots together.  No big deal, first round of the year.  I got to 8, hit a 3 wood off the tee on a downhill 382 yard par 4.  Wind into the face left me 119 to the back left pin.  I hit a drew a nice soft wedge to about 2.5' and made my 4.  Yeah...putting wasn't a thing today.  Great feeling shot though 🙂

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

150 ish 7 iron for my first ever hole in one... came from back there over the water and the high lipped sand trap  and went over the pin into the little hill to  the upper tier of t

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

Made a long putt, about 30 feet. Aimed ten feet left of the hole, hit the putt, it went where i wanted it to, hit the downslope and went in. Hit it maybe a tad too firm but the hole got in the way.

It went down, I'd say you hit it perfectly.

Yeah, had to hit it firm enough to hit the slope. But if the hole didn’t get in the way it would have kept going farther than i would have liked

Such a ridiculously tight pin between a trap and Hazzard on this par 5, I had gap wedge distance but instead hit pitching wedge to the fat part of the green. Rolled in this very tough downhill 35 footer! The first of several long putts holed. But this one turned a meh 2 over after 5 to an I now have your attention 1 over after 6!

That’s my playing partner Milt putting first even though he was much closer.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I had to teach myself how to edit putts on Arcoss to show this one, but I made one of my better putts ever yesterday.  One of my longest and the highlight of my round.  All of my putts were good yesterday, but this was by far the best.  My distance control is absolutely spot on with my putter, but I don't always read the break correctly.

Two great shots today. score needs editing in Arccos. Greens were punched and driver was all over the place and short. 
 

Drive of the day with the super hybrid. Never could replicate through the round. In need of driver fitting as my super hybrid is going as far as my driver.

shot of the day is a 167 yard approach.   Had a tree in my way. Played a high fade and finished high. On the green for birdie opportunity from 27 ft.

Had another cool shot to highlight. Was 130 out, tree branches straight ahead. Pulled out a five iron, hit a strong punch shot that was no more than 10 feet off the ground, under the branches but over the hill, ran it all the way to the green but went slightly over the green. No way i thought i was going to pull this off.
