What's The Most Incredible Shot You've Seen LIVE At a PGA Tournament?

8 posts in this topic

I followed John Daly at the Buick Open some years ago - he was in the rightside rough and his ball was behind a tree, we figured he would punch out to the fairway. Not Daly, he took a huge swing at the ball and it launched like a rocket right over this tree toward the green - unbelievable.

I saw what many consider one of the greatest shots of Seve Ballesteros' career -

1983 Ryder Cup at PGA National, Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. Singles match against Fuzzy Zoeller. Was 3 down at one point & needed to win the 18th for a halve. On the 18th he had 250 yards from a fairway bunker. ball up near the lip. Anyone would have blasted out. Seve took a 3-wood, opened the face way up, aimed about 50 yards left of the green & hit a rope-cut onto the green.

There is no video of this shot...which is kind of surprising. But it has become almost mythical thru the years.

Jimenez at the Open at St. Andrews (17th hole) in 2010. He made double-bogey, but that shot was unbelievable.

Steve Lowery's double eagle on the 17th hole in the final round at the International at Castle Pines in 2002.  He still finished 2nd to Rich Beem who was finished and sitting in the clubhouse watching Lowery's finish.  He actually had a makeable putt on 18 to tie, but just slipped it past the hole.  I was working the 17th as a hole marshal and was stationed at the green at the time he made the shot.  Lowery won the event in 1994.

All great posts!! It's been said Seve had the best pair of hands in golf! Would have loved to see that 3 wood shot! Jimenez is one for the ages, love his cigar approach to the game - better yet is his newfangled stretching exercise with his (5 iron I think), what a sight!!

Shaun Micheel's approach shot on the 72nd hole of the 2003 PGA at Oakhill in Rochester, NY.

He was paired with Chad Campbell and on the 18th tee Micheel had a one stroke lead. 18 is uphill (from tee to green) and we were up by the scoreboard, unable to look down the hill to see the players, all we saw was the ball being stiffed to the pin and did not know whose shot it was. So that added to the excitement

.

It was a great day, but the couch is much better for a Sunday.

Tigers chip shot on 16 at the Memorial last year.  His tee shot went long and settled down in the thick rough.  His chip shot was stright down hill, no one that day held the green from where he was.  Next thing you know he knocks it in like it was no problem.  That shot basically one him the tourny.  Unbelievable I have never heard a roar so loud.

    • This is why I joined a Country Club here in No. Virginia, when I first moved to the area, I couldn't believe it took me 5-5.5 hours to play 18 holes on the weekend.  That lasted a couple of summers and then I took the dive to joining a Country Club, which for me is well worth the cost. 
    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
