Re: Player Hits Water, Gets Birdie
I had a shot yesterday to make a birdie (with a chip in) or a par yesterday after skipping a ball across some water. It was a Par 5 - hit a drive with way too much air under it into the wind. Over the forced carry, but not by much. In the rough, uphill lie, pop up a 3H about 160 yards that ended up about 8 yards behind a tree that is in the middle of the fairway, about 145 yards from the hole. Attempt to use my 3H to hit a punch slice and run it up to the green from the right side because there is a trap in the left front of the green. I don't cut the ball nearly enough, and it goes dead straight and skips across the water that borders the left side of the hole, and jumps out and ends up about 6 feet off the green -
of course, I failed to get up and down, but I still had a chance!
