While I did not measure my KP, I know it was inside 26".  But hey, I'm the yutz who forgot to measure, so @xOldBenKenobiXis the guy to beat. And watch out @tchat07, the hole following this par 3 (where the cart is) often has a tailwind and I've had a couple of drives this year that have rolled out to right at the 300 mark. Posting a net round better than @RoverRickis going to be tough nut to crack... but ya never know...an ace here, an eagle there 🙂.

Hey @fozcycle- glad you're joining in on the game!  I've never heard of a TopFlite Hammer Distance, but it sounds like one that should stop like a dime on the greens 😆.

@fixyurdivot it definitely  looks closer from this angle, @RoverRick posted a very close one too.

I am taking a measuring tape with me Sunday.

Sorry, it would have been Lake Hefner North Course, OKC.  I think it's 71.1/123, but I'll confirm.

 

Yes, that's correct.

 

For the record, that drive was alright, but this on on Sunday was off the charts.  To make it better, I hit the green in two and sank the eagle putt!  Too bad this wasn't part of the HRC.

I was thinking that to beat that I was going to hit the cart path downhill and just let it roll, one of my playing partners has done that before, ended up with 340 yards of the tee, he chucked the chip off the green twice then 3 putted.

Hey [mention=156]fozcycle[/mention]- glad you're joining in on the game!  I've never heard of a TopFlite Hammer Distance, but it sounds like one that should stop like a dime on the greens .

Haha I am worried because no way I am getting any roll this week with the rain we are getting and Tropical Storm (nobody can pronounce) coming up the coast. Honestly if someone can mash a Hard Rock 300+ I am just tipping my cap and taking the silver haha! If you are going to do it get it soon so I can just swing for the fences for a couple of rounds haha.

That is because I only went thru one of the boxes I had on my trunk.
