What was your Shot of the Day?


Sluggo42

Recommended Posts

I've played in windy conditions a few times, but mainly on trips to the coast. It's rare that we get a heavy wind here in SW Ohio that isn't also rainy and miserable. I can't even guess at what the wind speeds were, not to mention the gusts, but I average 245 with my driver, and into the wind I "busted" one 195, and downwind had a couple over 290. #13 is an uphill par 3 where the wind was straight off the right. Today's tee was 166, but it's a least a club uphill. Even though the wind was cross, I figured I needed even more club for it. I took my 7 wood (normally about 195) and aimed it 25 yards right. I pushed it another 15 yards right of that. The resulting wind sweeper ended up pin high, 6' right of the hole. That's 40 yards of wind push! (I missed the putt, but the greens were aerated last week.) It was a difficult round to get judgements right, but it was a tremendous amount of fun!

I haven't used my 5 wood much this season as I've been very inconsistent with this club specifically and of course with golf in general.  I pulled it out a few times today and it really clicked.  When I hit it right I get some decent loft and it travels pretty straight.  This hole in particular I'm pretty happy with.  After a shorter drive I was left with a tall evergreen, then a bunker, between me and the green.  This has always been a two shot situation for me, but I pulled the 5 and went for it.  Up and over the tree, cleared the bunker, and stopped on a dime about fifteen feet from the pin.  No applause for me, but I'm pretty sure the squirrel nearby was suitably impressed, LOL.Screenshot_20211022-172955.png.01c1c61ac6ae07f97c61b5c257f828f8.png

I'm a few days late posting this one but I got to play a couple nice courses in OC MD last Sunday & Monday...Lighthouse Sound & Rum Pointe.  They are right on the water & it was very windy both days...about a 2 club wind and at times even more. 

My two shots of the two days both came on the second day at Rum Pointe. 

The #1 handicap hole is #7 and #2 handicap hole is #16.  After a decent drive on the dogleg 434 yard par 4, the first shot of the day was the approach, a 190 yard wind aided high fade 5 iron to about 8' and I made the birdie putt!!

On to #16....A nice wind aided drive on the slight dogleg 425 yard par 4 got me to 145 from the middle of the fairway.  A lot of wind behind me now & I didn't want to get a high shot up into it and end up way long.  A 3/4 swing low 7 iron fade skipped once and stopped quickly about 10' from the cup.  Had the benefit of a longer putt from my partner showing me the line and I made mine for a birdie.  I felt real good making birdie on those two in the wind!   😊

I was up and down in my round yesterday, but did hit my 56 degree wedge high and dropped it within 2 feet from about 40-50 yards out. Felt

438 yard drive!!!!!!

I CLEARLY landed on the cart path, TWICE, and the ball ended-up even with the front edge of the green, just off to the right. The hole was 456 on the GPS, and I walked it off from the middle.

Crazy!!!! I should’ve driven back to the tee to get an official GPS reading.

Even with a cart path bounce (or 2) that’s an impressive drive!

My second shot on hole 14 yesterday was probably my shot of the day.  After my drive left me in the trees on the right, I pulled out my 5 iron, hoping to just get it back out onto the fairway.  I actually hit it lower than I wanted.  Rather than get it about 40-50 yards forward and back onto the fairway, the ball hit the top of a small five foot hill and absolutely launched itself, rolling forever once it hit the ground, coming to a stop about 160 yards away for an easy chip onto the green.

Hole of the day was a par 3, 145 yards downhill. Normally would choose a 9 iron, but it was 40 degrees outside and i didn't want to miss short so i took an 8 iron. Just slightly pulled it but still landed on the green. Made the 15 foot putt for birdie.

This was from last weekend, but it was fun.  My playing partner teed off first and just crushed a drive.  I'd been hit or miss with my driver so I pulled my 3W.  I'm not sure what exactly I did, but I wish I could do this every time.  I hammered a high baby draw that ended up in the first cut on the left.  I measured it out on 18Birdies and ended up just a couple of yards shy of my playing partners drive.

The 18th hole at my new home club, Plantation Palms is a very difficult hole for me to navigate.  I have only parred it once before and that was several months ago. Today my drive was placed perfectly and my approach shot was a 5W that landed a couple inches from the front edge of the bunker.  Now the bunker is about 10-12 feet below the surface of the green.  From my stance I could not see the pin, just knew it was a back pin.  I chipped up with my 58* Zipcore and found myself just about 5 feet from the pin.  Made the putt for par, capped a 90 for the round.

25+ years of golf and have never seen this before. 124 in fairway, pin cut 8 feet from right side. Ball starts 2 feet right of flag and starts coming down right on top of it. Couldn't tell exactly what happened from the fairway but could here the hole/flag was hit in the air, ball bounces about a foot away. Get up to the green and there is no ball mark, no damage to the hole nothing. Pick up the ball and see the scar. The hole was not cut perfectly and the ball flew directly into the side of the cup bounced off the pin and out. Bizarre. 

 

P.S. Yes, I made the putt.

During my round today on a par 3, 9 hole course, for most of the round, I was hitting iron shots that were decent and had good results, but weren't those flushed compressed shots. On hole 7, it was 150 yards, uphill, flushed my 7 iron and it made that sound that you hear when you compressed it well, landed it on the green and had a good look for birdie but missed the birdie putt.

Ok, take this with a grain of salt. Full club wind behind me, dead flat fairway that was very dry, so the ball ran a good way. My carry on TM is always 280-290, so lots of run. Technically the longest drive I’ve ever hit. Max LS, MMT 70 stiff. Duffed the 60 yard wedge! 😂😂😂083DE000-CB76-496E-A323-9496B4923A21.png.6cb14ed3a3dfcb0fb11f380e74dadbb7.png
