There were a few candidates today, ones that I said wow, that did exactly as I planned but worked out even better...

Above all, it was the entire hole...number 15...a gradual downhill R-L par 4 that plays 391 from the blues.  Hammered a drive that landed 344 from the tee.  

Hit a 60* to about 9 feet and made the birdie.  

 

I absolutely love when courses have this on their page for course layout. Not sure if the course did this or someone on the course but always awesome. 

Nice shooting

Thanks bro...its a feature of their website, something that certainly pushes them into a top tier category for the area.

It's a touch of class.

The shot that keeps you coming back happened this afternoon. My driver has decided to get into the pizza business. So my shot of the day was on a par 3, 166 yards over water. So I pulled my 170 yard club. Which in my case is my Ping G410 Crossover 4. (I’m not the longest player 💪🏼). The shot was a nice high slight draw to 5 feet. But alas the putt broke to the left and finished 1 inch left of the hole for a tap in par. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Missed a hole in one by “this much” this afternoon 😳

174 yard par 3 hit a smooth 6 iron and it never left the flag.

From my round on Monday at Pacific Dunes, probably my most technically difficult shot that was well executed was a bunker shot where the ball on the downslope of one of the bunker with no room for my to stand in the bunker. I couldn't play it on my knees from above, a bit too steep, might have fallen in. So I sort of squatted and hit the ball and made it out of the bunker fine.

My most memorable shots of the day were a 5 iron on 10 and a 5 iron on 11, both par 3s, hitting the green on both, and making par on both. Hole 11 was 130 yards playing like 180 yards. Never played in such windy conditions before.

Such a frustrating round today.  Overall, a terrible scoring round. It did have 4 great shots though.  

On hole 3.  I laced a 54* from 96 yards and just stuffed it pin high (naturally missed the 10' putt). 

Next Tee box on 4.  I ripped a 310 yd drive straight down the middle.  Just a ripped drive!

Couple holes later I laced a 3W straight down the middle .  Out drove my playing partner by a good thirty yards.  Felt nice!

Final hole is a terrible Par 3 that drives me crazy.  I missed the green to a tight sidehill lie.  I hit a little open faced chip with my 58*.  It landed above the hole and trickled past the pin about 3'  Hit the comeback and left it 1" short.  It was fun to hit a technical touch shot and pull it off!

I was in the trees about 90 yards from the green with a bunker directly between me and the pin.  The smart play would be to hit a lateral pitch back onto the fairway but I've never been mistaken for smart.  On suggestion from my playing partner, I lined up with the ball on my back foot and delofted the heck out of my 7 iron.  I blasted a stinger that never went more than five feet above the ground and hit the lip on the back of the bunker, which popped the ball up and rolled to a stop about ten feet from the pin.  (Sighs) I proceeded to two-putt it for a triple.  But WOW what a shot!  I'll never do that again in a million years.

After a great round we all got drunk at the bar.  This looks over the green on one of the holes.  We were hammered and went out and took a dump on the green.  Man it was funny.  Don't recommend doing this but it was super funny.

Hammered enough to forget the picture overlooking the green…..

the last one was dead into the wind. absolutely my best drive of the day and would’ve outpaced the other two easily.

Played in a tournament on Saturday. Shot of the day came on a Par 5 on the back 9. Hooked my drive into the woods and had a window to get my ball out into the fairway 85 yards from the green.

Pin was back and had a slight breeze into the face. Took a high full 56* wedge that hit the pin on the way down. Landed 6 inches from the cup and rolled to 4 feet. Did my best to miss the birdie putt, but it snuck in anyway. Can't remember the last time I hit the pin on something longer than a chip.

On the 9th hole, sitting 1 over par I was in this bunker with the green running away and toward a pond. Ball severely below my feet, I got my hands as low as I could and opened up my lob wedge, gave it a thump and trickled down to tap in range for par!

I hit a chip for a birdie today.  I've come to the realization this week that I need to stop getting cute with my wedges on the course and stick with what I know.  When I get within about 20 yards of the green, my pitching wedge is my best club; I have more control over it than any other club.  I pulled it out to chip one in from about this far (my distance perception is terrible so I'm not sure how far):

It wasn't probably the best shot of the round, but the one I had really been tinkering with over the last 4 weeks, the low flighted 40-50 yard pitch shot, stuck it to 5 feet and hit the birdie putt. Its been an issue where if I want to take advantage of some of the distance off the tee on short part 4's I need to execute those shots from 40-70 yards when I can't hit full wedge shots in.

Not so much a shot of the day but a hole of the day.  Hole 16 at River Heights always seems to give me the yips.  I generally end up in the circled area off to the right if I dont completely shank it.  Yesterday was different though.    Hit this one right down Broadway and then hit my 3W well, though it tailed to the right a bit.  Hit a 60° flop that carried with the wind and stopped on a dime about ten feet from the pin.  Holed the putt.  Each of those things individually don't happen very often and to pull them off in one sequence was a real joy!

played a scramble today at a really nice club in stamford ct

par 5 14th hole playing 560. my partners drive left us 290 out sitting in the first cut

we decided the best play was for the shorter hitter in the group to hit a safe iron about 175 and for the two longer guys to pull 3w and go for it. 

plan worked to perfection. first guy hit a great 7i to the middle of the fairway. second guy hit a good 3w but tugged it a little and ended up about 50 yards short in the left rough. 

i hit last and hit potentially the best 3w of my life. took off like a bullet starting about 10 yards left of the green and cut back to the middle. hit the apron leading to the green and rolled up to the collar. 

if it hadn’t rained all morning, it would’ve rolled right up to the middle of the green
