What was your Shot of the Day?


Sluggo42

Recommended Posts

Haha, this thread allows me one more time to brag about my perfectly struck 4 UiHi iron. I suppose it went somewhere around 210, but I didn’t measure.

the length doesn’t matter as much as how good the contact was. Ball actually went really high, with a very slight draw. 
 

it was just one of those hits that was better than any others that come to mind., ok time to put this brag to bed. Thank you for your time…

shot of the day was a 7 iron from 153 that was a gorgeous soaring draw that ended up 1 foot from the pin.

unfortunately, the rest of the day sucked…

Hit a 5 wood 189 yards from the adjacent fairway to just missing the cup today; easily my most memorable shot in my career so far.

Okay, It was still a nice shot. Looked like the correct color in the photo. At least now you know better. Yellow would have went in. 🤣

First outdoor 9 of the year! I played a super short course near me mostly to knock the rust off and remind myself what real golf actually felt like again.

Shot of the day was on a 275 yd par 4, straight away to a green that slopes pretty severely back to front. I hit my 2 hybrid on the nose and it faded right toward the heart of the green. I actually plugged it on the fly into the green about 2 yards on, man it feels good to be golfing again!!

Best shot was off the first tee. Downhill absolutely smoked my 3 wood. Hit my second shot where I wanted but misjudged length, just needed a few more feet (false front) also my putt was not 32’. Was 6’ arccos was a little all over the place in the greens today.

beet hole was the only par 3 I played well. They are all really long at this course (200 plus on 3 of them and 185 on the last one). Should have hit more irons because this was piped and drained the longggg putt.

Accidentally replicated this (the divot) today

tiger_divot.jpg.580256ab76158767c696421c988cc835.jpg

Yes, I really did take a divot just about that long. Was 80 yards out, had been raining so the fairways were wet, hit a full 58 degree wedge. Hit it flush, took the large long divot, ball came out pretty high with a lot of spin, landed and took a small hop in the air after it landed and stayed in the same spot, 3 feet from the hole. 

Was playing with a guy that I play with frequently and he was like "how did you do that". I really have no idea. Usually if I take a divot that big, the ball goes like 5 yards.
