Working on my swing big time, and my first iron shot of the night was from the rough about 135 yards away. Trying to concentrate on the new swing details, I rip a 9 iron right to left about pin high. One of the first draws I've ever hit with an iron.

Played today? What was your best Shot of the Day?
Playing well requires you to think back to a successful shot you made. Here's your chance to tell us about it. I'll start with my best shot of today.
My best shot of the day was the approach shot on hole # 3 at River Spirit GC, Cat Tails course. From 196 yards out, I hit a sweet Taylormade 4-hybrid to the green. It was straight and cleared the water hazard guarding the green. It landed pin high, about 7 feet away from the hole.
And yours was?
Another was a drive on a par 5...hit it and immediately lost sight of the ball. Hit a provisional just in case. Drove up and it's right in the middle of the fairway just before the creek...about 290 yards!!!
Long par 4 in a two man scramble today...our best approach was pushed right by some trees. Our only shot was over a pot bunker to a tight pin. He played it safe and pitched up rolling about 10-12 feet by. I say "I'm gonna flop it", much to his dismay as he tells me to play it safe and that I'm gonna skull it across the green.
Anyway, Flop it way up in the air with my 60 over the bunker and about 2 feet from the pin! :)
Also holed out a 12 footer with the game on the line. We lost on the next hole anyway, but if I missed that putt, it would have been over.
On a par 5 that is about 460 yards, weird dogleg hole. 2nd toughest hole on the course. The previous hole runs the opposite way to the left of this hole, so it's open to go across the bend if you can clear the trees.
I have improved my slice to a controllable fade with my driver, so I decided to go for it and cut the corner.Hit it just to the left of those trees you see and it faded around them down to the middle of the fairway. Probably 215 yards total or maybe a little more as the crow flies, but put me in a great spot considering I was around that corner already.
15th hole, 330yard par 4 downhill with a river that runs across the hole near the green. I hit my tee shot to about 110 yards and then hit a 9I from there. The ball landed short left of the hole, but ricochetted off of a large river rock and bounced right and onto the green about 20 feet from the hole. I two-putted for par.
Mixture between two...
Pushed my tee shot right and was in some thick rough in the woods. No clear shot at the green about 230 yards out. Aim in between two trees to the left and set up to slice the living hell out of it. Smash it and it banana slices all the way around straight to the pin, leaving me about a 20 yard pitch to the pin.
Pushed my tee shot right (see a pattern here?) and I'm stuck behind some trees in the rough about 210 yards out from an uphill green. Aim left of a tree in hopes of hitting a slightly less banana-y slice, and smash it on the green pin high about 15 feet from the cup with my hybrid..
