Crazy golf shot yesterday!

5 posts in this topic

Yesterday was the first time I was able to get out on the course this year. Because of the cold temps, our local courses were not able to open up until this past weekend.  Along with the cold temps, the lakes around the course still had ice on them.  There is one hole that you need to hit over the water onto a green along the edge of the lake.  I swung my wedge and got too far under the ball and it came up short, but instead of sinking to the bottom of the lake, it bounced off the ice and landed on the rough on the other side.  The guys I played with had never seen anyone do that before.

Anyone else ever had a shot like this?

Yah, what really sucks is when  your ball slides out to the middle of the ice and you can see it there, taunting you... but you know if you get out on the ice you're going to fall through

There was once a guy here with a set of Ping Eye 2s that I believe has done this many a time.

Still, nice shot

Maybe they'll freeze the lake at the masters! would make the water skipping par 3 very exciting.

Cool shot btw... talk about a lucky bounce :)

Back when I lived in upstate NY, I used to play a course called Evergreen CC. It was a course that never really closed for the winter. They would let people come out and play year round. When we got a decent temp day mid winter I would go play. There is an island par 3 where the lake is completely frozen all winter. On more than 1 occasion I have thinned a tee-shot and had it skip across the ice and roll up on the green.
