standing at the chasm of 200+ yards over the pacific to the 16th green at Cypress Point...I nailed a 2 iron into a slight breeze to about 35 feet just left of the pin. The caddy comes over and hands me my putter and says "nothing like a nice long walk with your putter"...tears were coming down my cheeks...better than the 3 hole in one's or the double eagle.

On a par 3 and hooked I it left into a 10 wide ditch with water and overhanging trees. My buddy asked me if I wanted a drop but i said not, hit it out, and chipped in for birdie. Right in his face lolz

I was standing in the fairway on a par 4 and had about a 225 yd. shot to the green and was waiting on the group in front of us to finish putting.

These jerks playing behind us had been pushing us all day even though WE were the ones waiting on every shot (i.e. not playing slow). Finally, the group behind us started teeing off and hit several shots near us in the fairway and even grunted a few "hurry ups" assuming I would never reach the green on my approach shot.

Well, when the group finally left the green I hit one of the best shots of my life and landed it right smack on the green - best shot of my career

From that point on we didn't get pushed by the group behind us for the rest of the day

Great day and that was at least 8 years ago!

My best moment was the during my first year of playing golf. It was like my 4th or 5th time actually out on the course. We are playing a really short course with no par 5's over 500 yards. The first par 5 we come to is 388 from the whites. At about 200 yards there is a downhill slope with a stream running through so all average players have to lay up or deal with the water on the fly. I hit my driver and wound up in the flat about 5 feet from the stream. This puts me about 180 out up hill to the green. I hit my 4 or 5 iron (its been 8 years so i can't remember the club) perfect right where the green is. We get up there and can't find my ball anywhere. So i figure i must have put it over the green and i drop behind the green and chip up. I go to take the pin out and my ball is sitting in the cup. No one could believe what just happened. It felt great and that is truly the moment that hooked me on golf.

Anytime I played with my grandma.

So true. There will always be the individual things, but golf is a social game and it's always nice to have people arround you that you enjoy when you make the incredible shots.

The first time I chipped in, it just feels great. Still feels awesome every time I do it, since it's very rare.

Yeah, i'd have to say chipping in is a great moment, that boost your ego

I have a funny ongoing thing with my brother about chipping in. He had never chipped in before in his life. Every time I would do it (4 or 5 times a year), I would call him and tell him about it. We played in a tournament where the green was right next to a tee box that he was standing on and I chipped in right in front of him. We played a few weeks later and we came to a hole with a temp green and one of the extra large cups. He chipped in but I had to rag on him because of the big hole. Made for a lot of fun. I still don't think he has chipped in on a normal hole to this date.

I had just received my first set of clubs and was out in probably my 3rd round at 10 yrs old. Playing a long par 4, I was hitting a 7 iron from about 125 yrds out. I skulled the ball and it never went any higher than a foot off the ground. With about 25 yards to the front of the green, the ball hit a cart path sign and bent it just enough to launch the ball straight up in the air. After one bounce on the green it dropped straight in the cup for my first par ever.

Tied with:

Another long par 4 with a road that runs the entire length of the hole to the right. I sliced my drive and it started bouncing right down the middle of the road. After about 100 yrds of this a 1985 ford pickup ran the ball over and shot it dead left within about 15 yards of the green. A 450yrd drive.

i was going to say that for me, nothing can compete with my hole in one, but when i was playing with my brother (12 years old, never played golf before) on friday, seeing him birdie the second hole (102 meter par three) by driving the green with my 3 wood and sinking a 2 - 2 1/2 meter putt without even lining up, that was one of the best experiences i have had on a golf course, i just started laughing when it dropped.

Playing a quiet round with my wife in the cart on our anniversary this year. It was a colder than normal day but still nice and we got out on the course and it was just us. Great talk and I was hitting the ball really well which she got a charge out of.

Close second: Par 5 on the back nine of Lincoln West. Perfect drive off the tee which rolled up to almost 300 leaving me about 224 in. Pulled out the hybrid and just tattooed it and ran it up to within about 8 feet. Putted it out and walked away with my first eagle. THAT rocked.

my greatest moment has to be my hole on one. 187yds slightly downhill with a 6 iron. my second greatest is when i birdied 18 at rocky point to shoot my lowest round ever an 80, when all i needed was a bogey to shoot 82 and beat my previous best 83. so i was real happy to conquer the pressure i put on myself that day.

That's a great story, funny

playing at Cane patch par 3 course in myrtle beach earlier this year. First time actually playing on a course not just on the driving range. My dad aces on his 8th hole ever (90yds I think), I birdied the 10th hole in front of about 40 people. First sub bogey score I ever got. What are the odds on that?

    • Overhand or underhand? I do think the connection most on this site have is we like talking golf. Most want to improve as well, but may not currently have the time available to put in to improve.
    • Distance is great and all that, but you have to keep it playable. If the driver is costing you 4 penalty strokes a round take some lessons... real lessons with it, not some quick fix crap.
    • What I have to do is focus on one shot at a time. Plan the hole from the flag back. That's the plan, but that's based upon hitting a good tee shot. If I don't put the tee shot where I need to, then it's a new hole. The tee shot is behind me. I have a different shot. I may have to hit a banana ball around a tree which I'll try if I'm hitting the ball well. If I'm not hitting the ball so well, I'll punch out. Best to let the game come to you to avoid putting up big numbers. This year will be interesting. I've dropped my LW, gone with a OL 56 wedge and added a 7W.
    • No. We've rolled back to phase 2. Which means no rakes, no ball washers, etc. Bunkers are GUR.   
    • golf courses can help this by keeping the underbrush in the woods cleared. My home course does and it's pretty easy to find a wayward ball unless you hit it way off line. The worst time about lost balls is in the late fall and real early spring when the rough is long and too wet to mow. I just play a 6i off the tee and move up a tee box to keep it on the short stuff.
