2nd hole at a tougher course, 183 yard downhill par 3 with a green on top of a hill below. Hit an easy 4H that drew with the wind and landed pin high 2 feet from the hole. Easy birdie (I've never made one so early in a round)
I was on the 18th hole at my course, which is a long downhill par 5 about 530 yards long, tree-lined. I hit an okay tee shot that found the centre of the fairway, then hit the best 3 wood shot I've ever hit in my life. Perfect contact, perfect swing, perfect everything plus I didn't even feel the ball when I hit. The ball went about 270 yards which is longer than most of my drives. I ended up parring the hole after an 80 yard chip and two-putt.
I purchased a Cobra BiO Cell Driver from a golf store in my area (Golf Town for any of you who know it) in August of last year. I love the driver and it's helped me so much with my driving. I would highly recommend it.
A few days ago, I'm on the 1st tee at my local course. I pull out the BiO Cell, take a swing, and the clubhead completely snaps off and flies ahead. Luckily I was able to find the head. The club snapped just above the hosel.
I've heard of other...
12th hole at a public course near me (par 3 138 yards): The hole is on top of a hill surrounded by forest and trees that run away down the hill. The pin is on the left side of the green so I decide to hit a draw over a few trees, but end up pushing ball deep into the downhill forest. I manage to find my ball and hit a SW through trees and up the hill onto the right fringe, about 40 foot away. I make the putt for a very unlikely par.
Final hole of my home course (par 4 379 yards), I hit my 2nd shot right of the green under a tree, near the trunk. I walk over to the ball and I can't even make a swing or chip with my wedge. There's also a little hill I had to get over and the green's sloping down and away from me. I'm about 50 feet away from the hole.
So I take out my 3 wood, aim for the little hill, and take a small jab at the ball. It comes out from under the tree, hits off the hill and bounces up...
I was putting on the 3rd hole par 4 389 yards at a new course in my area (first round of the year). I have a huge downhill putt, maybe 35 feet, to save par but I completely mis-read the slope and the ball ends up almost off the green, barely any closer to the hole. I line up again and sink the uphill putt for bogey.
