What was your Shot of the Day?

63 yd pitch, into wind and uphill on the 18th, after punching out from an errant drive. Ball bounced, checked, and was rolling right towards the pin...and then stopped! It was tracking dead center of the pin, and just barely ran out of gas. Good way to end the round!

After flubbing my drive, I was 189 yards out to a forward pin.  I pulled out my 24* 7 wood and executed a near perfect shot, landing just short and rolling up to pin high about 6 feet to the right.  Rolled it in for the most unexpected birdie and besting my 3 playing partners, all of whom hit great drives in the fairway.

Snuck out to the local 9 hole course (Not my home club) that is in town after school. Half a dozen Year 7 students taking a shortcut through the golf course on the way to footy training. They recognise me and start yelling out at me to hit the ball. 

 

100m out, stick the ball 5m past the flag, spits out of the green (I could say spins back, but more likely it didn't) and rolls to one foot in front of the pin.

There wasn’t anything Herculean about today.  On any other day we’d expect to hit a good shot here so it’s the hole that makes this one special for me. 

3 wood with a nice soft draw leaving 151 to a front right pin. My tee ball plugged so once I cleaned it up I took a moment to admire a great shot to commemorate a mediocre round.

Par 5 #14 at my home club is 507 yards.  Standing on the tee, you can't see the landing area.  A steady incline goes up some 30 feet in elevation from the tee for the first 150 yards, then drops back down about 90 feet into the swale.  There, you will find a "mogul" that rises about 20 feet and is 80 yards wide from base to base.  The mogul will not allow your ball much rollout if you land anywhere short or into the face.  It limits any drive to 270 yards max.  The ball will roll up the mogul a little before coming back down into the swale.

But if you can catch the back side of that mogul (around a 310 yard carry) the ball will bound down the fairway like a banshee.  Of the thousands of times I have played #14, I have only managed to pull it off once about 10 years ago.

With a helping breeze of about 15 MPH, I accomplished this again last night.  I hit a PW into the green for my second from 121 yards.

My sons and I played our last round of the year at Boulder Creek in Boulder City, NV on 12/27.

14th hole of the round, #5 on the Desert Hawk 9 - Par 5, 476y

Hit a decent drive down the right, ended up in the hardpan next to the cart path.

Punched an 8 iron back on the the fairway, 95y out.

Hit a SW from 95...looked good in the air...hit the green about 10ft short of the pin and rolled past up a slope.

And started rolling back...closer....maybe....in!

Eagle for Dad!  Capped off the strangest year ever. 

Well, the 30th of the month seems to be a good day for eagles. Playing with my oldest on 4/30 at Revere - Lexington in Anthem (Henderson, NV). 10th hole, 320-ish, severely down hill. Had 120 left after a 6 iron off the tee. Hit SW to the right of the hole, bounced off the bank and in!

I’m posting two. First was on 17, par 3, over water to an elevated green, wind at my back helping 6 yards. 197 to the center, so I hit 6 iron. Boom. Hit it to 9 feet. Burned the lip for bird...

 

Next was my approach on the par 5 18th. I’ll post the Arccos Caddie distance that accounts for the wind. Hit it to 3 1/2 feet! Just pured a 9 iron, the ball was on the pin the whole way. Felt so good to end the round with birdie, par, birdie, and have two great shots on 17/18!

This looks like a great course but it made me chuckle because it reminded me of the opening holes of ClubProGuy's latest venture in 3 Jack National. If you follow him on social, you will know what I'm talking about.

Two shots of the day for me, one from league Thursday, and one from this morning.

On the par 5 14th, a solid long drive that leaked just a hair right left me with about 195yds from a front pin. There's two large tiers to the green, the lower portion in the front guarded by bunkers right and left. There's also a pond short left that has a knack of collecting balls as well, so unless I have a really great drive I'm usually laying up this hole. However, I had a perched up flier lie and decided to crank a 6 and see what happened...landed about 4 feet from the pin, and then the bowl brought it back to 3 feet from the cup! Knocked in the Eagle putt with a grin on my face the whole time!

And then this morning, had another par 5 with wind off the right and I think also helping a bit. Absolutely cranked a drive; I'm not sure if I ever have (or even could) have a better strike! Landed just far enough to get to a downslope and run out a while, ended up coming to rest 348yds away.

Hit a decent drive just shy of a ditch.  Arccos was off a little.  The approach was 172-174 on the Bushnell, with a tree hanging over the left.  I hit a nasty 6i draw around the tree to 3ft.  I was just hoping for it to come up short inbounds but I got all of it and it made the turn like I asked it to.  Made the birdie putt.  2 birdies today, some great holes, a couple terrible holes, 86 on a par 70 🙂

Par 5 #18 dogleg left around a big tree and the pump house.  Decent drive into a 15 mph wind; not a good second shot, but still in the fairway after a fortunate bounce.  My 3rd shot was an 8i all carry over sand; I would normally use my 9i for the distance, but it always seems like it plays longer than the yardage and I end up in the sand a lot... and it was into the wind.  I struck the 8i nicely, and it seemed that the wind suddenly died or changed direction.  The ball landed on the back of the green by the pin position, hopped and disappeared off the back.  There is a pot bunker back there, and I was in it.  Hit my 60º perfectly; ball flew up over the lip; landed on the green; and rolled into the hole for a no-putt birdie.  The crowd roared.  I tipped my hat ala Phil...  #TourSauce

345 yard downhill dogleg left from an elevated tee box that then goes back uphill to the green from the landing zone. Started hitting a draw with my driver lately so I aimed at the fairway bunker on the right side of the fairway. Hit a perfect draw that went around the corner and left me 70 yards uphill to the flag. Chunked it and had to get on in 3 with a 2 putt for bogey but never played this hole that way. Usually go over the trees with a fade that puts me in the same spot.

Played a couple rounds over the past few days.  My approach shots in general were the best they've been in probably 2 years.  I can't remember hitting that many at the pin in quite a while.   I hit 14 and 12 greens over the past couple rounds with the majority of looks being 20 feet or less.  Three shots that were around 5 feet and one that was a 6 inch tap in (all were 100 yard or less approaches).  Lastly I had 3 shots that stand out - One from 220 that I hit to 15 feet with my 3 hybrid and two others where I had 210 and hit great 4 irons (new Srixon ZX Utility) that also came to around 15 - 20 feet. 

Hoping the trend continues the more I play.

Haven’t had much to crow about for a few months, but today was magical with iron shots, I could post  quite a few of them.

my favorite was a 3-wood  uphill for 230 yds, on a par 5. It was about 10 yds short of the green too. Fortunately I chipped to a foot for the birdie, but that’s not the shot. 
 

it was nice to just hit such a pure 3 wood is all...

SOTD was after a penalty off the tee. I don’t know how many times I’ve played this hole many times and my tendency is always  right it’s Definitely in my head. Typically I’ll just be far right in the fairway and it just makes a longer 2nd shot up the hill.

well today hit a 7 iron that was playing 175 uphill into the wind. Put it to 8’ and drained the putt.

good drive set up a good chip and i sunk the birdie putt. 

always nice to come around the corner hoping your gamble paid off and see your ball sitting pretty.

Ive been working my tail off on a new swing and lucky enough to get free range balls to do so. Yesterday I had two back to back 5i where I had to work the ball.

1st was on a par 5 and I had about 190 to stick. Kind of between clubs so I played a draw to to get a few extra yards. Stuck it pin high at 12'. Missed eagle putt. 

Very next hole I hit a bad tee shot right that left me 180 to pin with a tree blocking my line. Decided to play 5i cut with a slight left to right wind. Ended pin high at 10' and made birdie. 

As bad as my game had been the past year, these shots were a big deal  to me. Major confidence booster.

I already showed this pic in the Howe you play thread, but in here it’s just the only one I took a pic of out of many choices. 
hopefully not jinxing myself, but I’ve now got 3 rounds of insane iron play that’s truly blowing my mind, using my new swing adjustment.
