MGS Officially Unofficial P.A.T.T.S thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome fellow Golfspies to the official Pars After Terrible Tee shots thread or P.A.T.T.S thread inspired by the Cobra Connect Challenge 3. Like it says. Show us all your incredible par saves or better after blowing it on the tee box. I'll get it started for us...

First hole of the round. Skyball. Followed by a thinned 3 Hybrid...then boom. Sand wedge and a 20 footer for par. 

@Bucky CC will not stop asking for credit for this thread. So let's all give him a hand for his coming up with this fantastic idea. 😉Screenshot_20190610-175927.thumb.png.02a968a42ece6a6e8195b01ab20ff216.png

Since it's been a rare sight recently of a good tee shot I have plenty. But this was by far the best from the most recent couple rounds. Toed the tee shot. Striped the second, but hit it left then a good chip and solid putt.

This isn't the P.A.N.T.S. (Par After Nominal Tee Shot) thread.

With a slightly different score it might've been B.A.T.T.S. (Birdie After Terrible Tee Shot) worthy - dig deeper into the statabase @blackngold_blood

BTW - who is taking lead on the B.A.T.T.S. thread _or_ the truly rarefied E.A.T.T.S. thread for that matter?

I'm suddenly hungry.

While I am not sure what is nominal about 192 into the trees, I will try to do better this weekend  @downlowkey   Would it look better if I would have stated that the 5w on the second shot had a lot more slice on it  to get around the trees and back to the fairway then the picture shows?

If you follow me on IG you saw me block this drive right, not sure if this qualifies as PANTS or not, but 212 off the tee is pretty horrible for me, and I played my 2nd from the wrong hole:

I was really just twisting your leg as a segue to spur someone to start the B.A.T.T.S. and E.A.T.T.S. threads.

But the idea of you intentionally trying to put together a P.A.T.T.S. worthy hole this weekend made me laugh out loud.

I personally think a little play-by-play commentary would probably improve all P.A.T.T.S. entries.

Posted this last week. Pulled tee shot into trees, comes to rest in penalty area. Drop under tree, stick the 8 iron for a tap-in par.

No worries, I didn't take it any other way then some good jabbing.  I actually meant that I have at least a couple terrible tee shots a round and that I would go crazy trying to make par rather than taking double out of the equation.  I am not sure I could intentionally hit a bad tee shot.  I'm not that good!😆

I feel like I should at least post my P.A.T.T.S. hole after throwing such a big stink about receiving credit for coming up with it.  Hell, I'm sure if someone did a little research they would find out some kid thought of this about 40 years before I did.  In any event thanks to @bardle for starting the thread so we can all share in our terrible starts and glorious finishes.

I have some significant questions/observations here. First off, have you thrown away the 3H yet? I mean, you hit your 9 iron farther than it both times. Second off, of the 3H was the right club off the tee, how was it the right club from 53 yards off the tee?

Third, nice par.

Take your heckling elsewhere GB! This thread is about redemption and overcoming the odds. We don't need your negativity around here!

I have two. The first is from the round last Saturday that I'm trying my hardest to erase from my memory. The second is from the week before that, which was a nice round from me.

I have this one from last week, the classic chunked layup off the tee turning a simple short par 4 into a nightmare that included a bit of everything including a happy ending par.

I have another entry for the P.A.T.T.S. forum.  Shanked 5 iron off the tee (way to play conservative) followed by a punch out 7 iron.  I then hit my 4 hybrid 218 yards to 2 feet for a routine par.  Thank you Cobra baffler rails for that fantastic hybrid shot from the rough!

Here's a funny one i had the other day. Yanked my tee shot, almost to the neighbouring green. Chopped off pitching wedge to 60 ft, two putt par. What a game we play 😂

Now where's the thread for excellent tee shots, horrible follow-up shots, and still making par?
