I've had a nine iron in but it was a baby par 5. The nine I play regularly has a 480 yard par 5 and if I pull it a touch I can get down to the bottom of this huge slope and have 150 in to the center.

A putter.

Same as me, drove the 18th par 5 at my old home course.

was blowing downlwind and to fly the lake you had to have around 300M carry on the ball. Was like a 3 club wind, I only made eagle, considering I was 10 foot away was kind of sad.

PW - 480 yard PW that was downwind like a mother. Plus, this par 5 has a ridge across the fairway that, if you land it short, will stop your ball 10-15 yards short of what it could be. OR, if you hit the ridge or hit the back side of it, can give you yards. I hit the top of the ridge, ball trickled over, and I hit a PW from a stock 8 iron yardage. Only made 4 though, because my PW was a little long-ish and then released a little...both from being so downwind.

6 iron. Short par 5 on 18 at my home course with elevated tee box. Plays 470 to middle from tee box. To front of green had 175. Ball landed 5 feet off the front. Pretty cool putting for a GIR haha.

Lob wedge. 550 yard hole, uphill, into a 2 club wind, hit it over the green, had to chip back on,.....oh wait, do you mean REAL golf, as opposed to internet BS.... then I would have to say 6 iron, and it was only a cheesy 435 yard par 5.

Good one! Mine's about as cheesy, it's a ligit 520 yd hole but in August the fairways are baked almost rock hard, then a 30+ mph wind and the ball goes for ever. You have to hit a 7 iron about 40 yards in front of the green and the ball will bounce and run all the way to the green!

That time I played with Jack Hamm we only brought our Drivers and our Putters and drove every green regardless of distance and 1putt'ed out. POW.

Those freaking hammer sales advertisements are hilarious.

last week it was a 490 yard par 5 with the wind at our back, i hit a great drive and it hit a yardage marker in the middle of the fairway. I was 137 yards out with a PW, my ball hit 2 feet behind the hole and went in, that was my first double eagle.

The only par 5 I've ever actually hit the green in 2 was at Mcleansboro, IL, 6th hole. Very short par 5, only 452 yards from either the blue or white tees, just 2 different locations, one elevated tee and one not. This was from the elevated tee, hit my driver to just over 160 yards out with about a 10-12 mph wind at my back. Hit 7 iron to right side of green and 2 putted for birdie.

A 520-yd. Par 5 down in central Oklahoma (circa 1981). Bushy trees which guarded the dogleg left had died, so I cut the corner with a 3W, hit a downslope in the left rough, zipped through the fairway and slalomed off a right side bank. All this ricochet on the sun-baked clay gave me about a 360-yd. drive, and I hit a 6 iron into the green. A week later, second shot was only a 7 iron. (Two birdies)

Course managers noticed a bumper crop of birdies and eagles on the hole, and retooled the left downslope with shaggy grass and a deep bunker. No more easy birdies.

PW - my first PW par 5 was after just a OMG drive like 350+, 70 over my average. level hole, but a slight tailwind and a GREAT first bounce. I was so out of my comfort zone that skulled my PW into a trap, then fat into the next trap, and up and down for a par

    • I saw a guy do this the other day with his 6 and 7 iron and both clubs landed within 5 feet of each other. I told him that he shouldn't get so angry but to check his lofts as he obviously had a gapping issue!  🤣
    • Traditional rating measurements show a decrease in viewership, but imho, the streaming options are pretty good and probably took away viewing via cable.

    • You’re probably right; people who speak in absolutes & hyperbole as well as people who feel the need to defend their expertise (in leu of letting their statements speak for themselves) tend to avoid admitting mistakes as the first group isn’t interested in actual numbers/facts and the second group is more concerned about how others perceive them. But I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt for now
    • I figure I should talk about my workouts somewhere other than a Google sheet.  I set up a rack in my garage a few weeks ago and have been using it MWF mornings before work.  Today I did 140 lbs squats, 125 lb bench press, and 205 lb deadlift, plus warm-ups for each.  I don't plan to advance mine as quickly as I did when I was getting back, but rather focusing on being comfortable with them.  I'm sure Rippetoe would disapprove, but I also don't eat enough (or I don't eat the right things?) to advance as quickly as some people do in his program (I'm also not as young as some people who go through Starting Strength).  About ten years ago I had a period of about a year where I was at the gym every other day and got some good numbers going then.  😕 
    • I agree. This season felt choppy, at best. Verstappen, the number 2 driver in F1, had about 30 seconds of total air time the entire season. They waited until the last 5 minutes of the series to let Hamilton speak on the big social justice issues going on.  The "Man on Fire" episode was pretty good, but even then they kept jumping from the crash to a different story in the same episode. Very bizarre.
