What's the furthest you've ever holed out from? - Page 4

Re: What's the furthest you've ever holed out from?

I have a hole-in-one from 198 yards, but the longest I have ever holed out from the fairway is just under 100 yards.

Longest was about a 40 yd pitch to save par on a par 4 hole (badly pulled the approach and duffed the 1st pitch).

Tee...........142 yd. Hole in one

Fairway...... I think about 125- 130 or so.... a few times.

About 140-145 or so. I was playing in a 2 man scramble tournament with my Dad and holed out on a par 4 for a 2. Worst of it was we didn't get in the skins game that day. We were the first day and only made a few birdies on the easy holes so we decided to save the money the second day. A skin on day 2 would have been worth about $125.

100 yards (sand wedge), 80 yards (lob wedge)


I've hit several pins as well. I just hit the flagstick from 220 yards on a par 5 this morning. Fat lot of good it did me - my ball ended up in a cruddy position in a collection area. Golf is a stupid game.

Yeah, hitting the stick is not all it is cracked up to be. They usually don't fair well from that. Now hitting the flag is where it's at. Evrey time I have done that, it catches the ball like a baseball glove and drops it fairly close to the hole.

75 yards for eagle on a par 4. The only one I have had. Somewhere between 10 and 20 eagles, but only on par fives (all putts I believe).

118 sand wedge for eagle on a short par 4....

I holed out from about 165 in a high school tournament...it saved my round too. I three-wiggled the previous hole for bogey. Then, out of frustration, I swung for the moon on the next tee and pushed it right into the high grass. I took a firm swing on the second shot and it was heading towards the pin the whole way, took one bounce and dropped.

Re: What's the furthest you've ever holed out from?

I have hole out twice. Once from about 125 out with a pw and the other about 75 our with a 60* wedge. The first time there was a bunch of anticipation as the ball flew the front fringe and rolled about 20ft in to the cup. The second time the ball bounced once slightly, hit again and went directly in.

It is a great feeling, can imagine an ace or double eagle.

~160 yards, 5-iron.

Re: What's the furthest you've ever holed out from?

Just wondering... what is the biggest thrill. I've holed out long and short shorts, holes-in-one, etc., but nothing is as satisfying to me as holing out a bunker shot -- you feel like you really got away with something.

LOL mine is a 15 yard chip shot.

Holing a bunker shot is pretty nice but you don´t get your name put up in the clubhouse for it. I´ll take the hole in one, just for bragging rights.

Re: What's the furthest you've ever holed out from?

In the "Old Days" Titleist would send you a trophy if you made a hole in one using their ball. I was very disappointed to witness a guy hole a par three (I was not in his foursome,) run up and take his cheap ball (for those that remember the brand, it was a Podo -- I saw it) out of the hole and later buy a Titleist and tell the pro he had holed out with it so he would get a trophy from Titleist. I guess there have always been cheaters in our sacred game. But nothing beats the scam (later exposed) of a scramble where two foursomes conspired to win a pickup for a "hole-in-one." The first foursome left a ball in the cup when replacing the flag, then distracted the watcher while a member of the second foursome acted like he hit a shot and then started yelling it went in. The prearranged deal was supposedly that they would sell the truck and split the money, but fortunately one of them had a guilty conscience and fessed up about the scam getting those two groups banned from the event -- at least that is what I was told.

Titleist sends a metal bag tag now. I registered for it after my hole-in-one the other day, even though it was a Noodle... because I hit it with a Titleist iron. We'll see if they send it anyway. A buddy of mine got one of the bag tags when he hit his hole-in-one.

I actually chipped in yesterday. From about 10 yards, but in the hole nonetheless.
