What was your Shot of the Day?

Recommended Posts

9th hole this evening is a sharp dogleg left. Trying to draw my drive, I pushed it right and it got caught up in some trees. Left me with 256 to the middle of the green, with a back pin. Hit an absolute laser beam, probably the best off the deck hybrid I've ever hit (second best came two holes earlier!).

It pitched about 5 yards on the green and rolled back to about a 20 foot putt. Two putt for par, and one of my least likely greens in reg I've ever hit!

During my last round...2 shots on the same hole. 

Been struggling with driver so decided to leave it out of the bag as we don't have really long holes and I'm hitting my hybrids pretty well.

6th hole, 430y par 4, elevated tee with a narrow fairway.

19° 816 H1, struck it sweet straight down the middle. As I was playing on my own I didn't wait to see it stop as I knew it was safe. Kept strolling down the fairway, can't see the ball where I thought it would be so walked a little further and there it was. Garmin to middle of the green was saying 107 so 323 yard drive 😮

Pushed the wedge slightly off the side of the really tricky green. I've been practicing this sort of shot with my 52° and felt I could get close. Came out perfect, landed exactly where I wanted to and rolled dead centre of the hole, last half a roll it dropped - a bit like Tiger on the 16th 🐯

Gave myself a little fist pump 😆

best shot of the day was this gap wedge from 118 out. 

flew it long and used the backstop long and right of the hole to funnel the ball down to 8 feet. 

made the putt for bird!

Left my tee shot a bit short at the front of the green, but fortunately my putter was up to the task!

My shot of the day yesterday at River Heights was my tee shot on 14.  Not only did I hit it further than I ever have, I managed to keep it in the fairway as well.  More than anything else this year, my driver has come a long way.  A couple months ago I was lucky to hit it 200 yards.  This time it went over 290.

My weekday group tries to play a different course every week. This means we usually suffer on the local knowledge aspect. Today we played Lassing Pointe, in northern Kentucky (Golf Digest's #1 public course in KY). None of us could figure out the greens. They were smooth and consistent, but just subtle enough that we were flummoxed. Other than one unexpected 25' birdie for me, I don't remember anyone making anything over about 6' all day. The last is a par 4 that is famous for it's 100 yard deep green. Today the pin was back, so from our tee it was a robust 460 yard hole, a little downhill, but into the wind. I hit my only bad drive, and was blocked from even seeing the green unless I hooked it 80 yards. I laid up, but pushed that, so now my line to the pin was blocked. I "took my medicine", and hit it where I could onto that massive green, but a long way away. One of us was on in two, but even farther away, maybe 100', and as was typical for our day, left it 25' short. I had 92' (stepped it off after), with the line skirting the edge of the fringe for the first 20'. When that putt went in all of us just burst out laughing! I had a great ball striking day, but under the circumstances that putt was the shot of the day!

No pictures or anything this time around, but SOTD is between a 3-iron on #9, or a putt on #11.

#9 - Par 5: Sliced my drive off the tee and ended on top of a hill right of the cart path. The lie was bare and compacted, but I had a clear shot and lots of room so I pulled the 3 out. Contact was good, but the flight was a bit lower than expected. Didn't matter though, the ball landed short, bounced on, and rolled out to the back of the green. Two putts for birdie 😄.

#11 - Par 5: Hit a great tee shot up the left edge of the fairway, then laid up in front of some bunkers with my 6-iron. From there I hit my 50* GW to the left side of the green (pin on the front right). I was a little above the hole and 30~ feet away, but I noticed a small spot of dead grass a few feet before the hole that looked like it would be the right line. I struck the putt well, rolled it right over that spot, and caught the right edge for birdie 😄.

Two birdies in a round is pretty rare for me so it was really fun to get those two so close together!

My wife (goshdarnitall) had by *far* the shot of the day -- short Par 3 all carry over trouble .. duffs the tee shot but ball ended up in a playable spot .. even if a bit of a dodgy lie and she's standing on uneven ground with ball slightly above her feet .. takes her GW and just nails the trajectory a few feet onto the green .. ball bounced forward and starts rolling towards the uphill slope to the flag .. runs up to the crest then bends a little right .. yep, towards the flag .. tracks straight onto the flagstick .. drops in.

crap round today that i cut short after 9 holes because we were already 2 and a half hours in with no signs of speeding up. 

best shot was this 6i on 9 that caught the left edge of the green. for some reason i have a ton of trouble with this hole, so being on this green in regulation felt great.

On the par three 11 I hit my 6 iron 141 yards into a slight breeze and it dropped and stopped about three feet from the hole.  Still managed to par the hole, but it was easily the closest to the pin I've ever been.

Uphill par 4, 228 from the green and I pulled out my Heavenwood which has always been my security blanket, but hasn't been so hot for me lately. I was just on the edge of the fairway so I had a nice lie, took a few practice swings to keep things nice and loose and let 'er rip. I landed pin high just to the left of the green, I expected a fade but ended with a straight shot that worked out well. 

Of course I flubbed the chip...

Had a good one tonight....went out at 5:30 to get in a few practice holes.  I was swinging the Sub70 driver to get more testing data.  Hit a nice drive on #7, leaving about 60 to the front flag that is on a mound.  caught a 57* just right, nipping it directly at the flag.  one short hop and enough spin stopped right next to the cup.  And yes I sunk the putt!!  😊

Played a very rare weekend round today and finished it with a thirty foot putt.

I suppose that shot was as good as any,

For some reason, it took about five hours to get around which would infuriate many; 

but I thankfully don't live on a schedule.

Home in time for Sox-Astros.
