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

155 posts in this topic

Twice recently players in my foursome have holed out from long range. Probably around 150 yards and 200+ yards. Also, twice in the past few weeks I've left balls peeking over the edge from 135 and 182 (the second one would have been for an Ace). Damn it, it frustrates me because I've never holed out from more than 15-20 yards. So my question is, What is your longest hole out?

About 215y with a 4-iron on a par 5 last summer (6th hole at Deer Run Championship Course) for a double eagle. Never had a hole in one, but I think a double eagle's better.

About 180, downhill with a 6 iron. It was at the 9th hole at Stewart Creek, Alberta, blind second shot over a hill.

Took a line then went back and hit it right on the line.

Playing partner watching from the top of the hill said "Nice shot", then "Wow, that is going right at it", then "****, its in the hole!!". I didn't see any of this.

140, with a 9 iron, in my fifth round of golf, for eagle on a par 4, the first hole of my Dad's home course. Since most of my shots at that stage were essentially random (nice to know some things don't change all that much), I looked all around the back of the green for the ball, thinking it had rolled off, when my brother went to pull the pin and found it sitting in the cup. Yeah, sure--I meant to do that.

Didn't have my first birdie until four rounds after my first eagle.

182 on my only hole in one. Then 145 for eagle. Others were shorter....50 yard range. I hit my second on a par 5 to about 6 inches once.

Umm... Depends on the club. Anything except for the putter, never. Putter, about... 15 feet? :P

My first one was my longest (so far): ~195 with a 5-iron in 1987 (or was it 1988?)

~123 yds. Number 8 at Magnolia Plantation in Lake Mary, FL. Half swing/punch shot on my 9i, nice draw, rolled right into the hole. I wish my eyes were better, as I didn't see it drop.

Until yesterday, it was a holed bunker shot from about 20 feet. Now, it's about 170 yards.

SO THERE I WAS... 155 yards away from the middle of the green and I had pulled my drive to the left. Dark the clouds were, and the evil of the rough was pulling my soul down to the depths of abyss. As I stood over the ball I gathered all my strength and mental tenacity, it was now or never. My club went back and in one fluid motion I swung for the fences! I looked up to find my ball flying through the air, but it was nowhere to be found! As I listened the split second later I heard it blazing through the grass in the fairway. I had bladed it as though I were a butcher trying to cut through bone.

I watched the ball sprint toward the flag, all the while never leaving the ground. It hit the pin going at least 50 mph and dropped. And so the tale ends in victory.

never had a long hole out before. Had a couple of 20 yards or so flop shots drop. And I've had a number of long chip ins. But never holed out from more 20-30 yards away.

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
