What was your Shot of the Day?

Every round we play, and even when we have a bad round, we still usually hit a few shots that we actually tried to do.

 

I had a 210 yd lie in the bark, under a big tree, with little trees in front of me, on the #1 hdcp hole.

 

So I saw that I had a small window if I could hit a low rising cut of about 20 yards. But I had to take a smooth swing as I wore the old spike less ecco's, and the sparse bark on the hard dirt offered no sure footing.

 

So out comes the 16* 3-wood, and I line up my feet to the opening, and aim the face at the pin.

 

I make a smooth firm swing and absolutely nailed it.

I ran out from behind the trees, just in time to see the ball land on the green and give me a 25' shot at a birdie, which I missed, but was still thrilled with the par.

 

Those are the shots that keep us coming back for sure...

Just got back from 7 days in Myrtle Beach and although I had a lot of bad shots, I had one great shot and several very good ones.  On Tuesday, May 3, we played the Legends Heathland course (we played all of the Legends properties, including the Heritage Club and Oyster Bay), and at Heathland I was absolutely on fire, particularly on our first nine, which was actually the back nine.  I shot 38 on this nine on my way to a disappointing 84, but it was the 17th hole, a par-3 that plays as long as 217 yards, but was 181 yards from the tees that we played (I think that it was playing quite a bit shorter than that because it's a slightly uphill hole and I played a 7-iron to a back and slightly right pin position. I nuked that 7-iron directly at the pin, and it looked awfully good to all four of us in my foursome (we couldn't see the surface of the green or the lower half of the flagstick from the tee box).  When we got to the green, my ball was sitting just 4" right of the cup, and my pitch mark was only about 18" short of the hole.  I won both a CTP and a skin on the hole on my way to a total of $175 in winnings that day (a big chunk of the $240 to $260 that I won over the course of five competition rounds).

I have never had a hole-in-one, but I now have been inside of 18" four times, three of which were inside of a foot.  At 73 years old, I'm hoping that there's still at least one ace in my golfing future, since I have had everything else including an albatross in 1993, and more than three dozen eagles on par 5s and more than a few eagles on par-4 holes.  If I can hole-out from the fairway and even from the rough from as far away as 165 yards, there's no reason that I shouldn't have at least one ace by now -- and I almost forgot, I have also hit the flagstick twice on short (less than 300 yard) par 4 holes, both of which resulted in eagles.

Klanked a drive which left 220 to the green. Hit a 3 wood to 10 feet, and nearly made the birdie putt. 3 wood is normally not my best club.

i think I had 5 up and downs today, any of which could have made topic, but that 3 wood was pure…

First shot of the day, thankfully it was not quite all downhill from there, but it didn't get better than this. Ties my longest ever, but first tee this was great and made the birdie which is always a nice touch. Though the 3 wood to 20 ft on the first par 5 was solid too, but its all about the long ball right?

Today’s shot of the day was a 141 yard 7 iron from the rough to the green, to 15ft,  fronted by water on my nemesis hole, a 517 yard par 5. For me this hole is a success if I don’t lose a ball. 😂

This may have been my best hole of the year.  Water to the left the entire hole.  Forced carry on the approach and a green fronted by bunkers.  Drive was a bit hooked and down the left side.  I pulled a 5i and laced it perfectly between the bunkers.  I lagged a 30' eagle putt down to 2' and made a bird.  (I've never had an eagle).  It was a highlight of an otherwise inconsistent round.

Played an early 9 this morning.  Shot of the day happened on the Par 4 7th.  I had my typical miss and blocked a driver off to the right rough.  I got to my ball and found a couple small trees directly in line to the green with about 195 to the middle of the green.  I pulled a six and hit a low fade stinger under the trees which ran onto the front of the green for a nice 2-putt par.  

So nice to come up with a plan and then see it come to fruition!
