Ok here i go, hole 8 at my local golfclub ( golfclub de koepel ) mens competition so an evening round. After we had rain the whole day at 17.00 start time it was dry, but still very windy.
Hole 8 is a dogleg left par 4 off average length about 390 yards big hill on the left and 2 bunkers on the right. so very small on landing area.
I selected driver as the club to hit ( should have known better ) i once again pushed it way right almost hit the water from left side 7th hole, i was in thick rough ( and again i should have know better ) hit a 4 iron. Club duck in the ground shooting out 180 yards forward again almost in the water. i was left with a 60 yard shot out of the rough with a steep downhill lie.
The pin position was front right, to make this situation worse i had to go over a hill ( couldn't see the flag ) and over a green side bunker to the green that slopes away from me.
Took my atv 58 deg wedge. Aimed it 8 feed right of where the flag should be ( because of the wind ) opened the club face and focused on keeping the club face open during the swing.
Than i made a little aggressive swing to get it through the long grass. The ball flew out landing just over the bunker on the green rolled about 8 feet past the hole and made my putt for par.
That pitch shot just felt so awesome it just did exactly how i pictured it.
Later that day on hole 13 i drove the ball way right again now in the rough on the upcoming 14th. about 170 from the green. To get there i had to hit a high draw over the tree line that separated the holes. green well guarded by bunkers. Again i should have known better that the selected 6 iron wouldn't carry the trees, so i hit the tree ball came straight down. now i was in the woods behind a tree that was in line with the green. Only thing i could do was to pitch it low in the right front bunker, wedged it out over the pin about 13 feet from the hole, leaving a nasty right to left downhill putt. I saw the line and hit it, it went in the center off the cup on the last roll. Best bogey ever.
