For some reason YouTube doesn't want to process this...here's a VIMEO. Got 3 (2 got up, 1 was basically bladed) on the first pass and got all 4 on the second and third attempt. There was plenty of

Not sure why I decided to set the camera up so close...

About a 25-30 yard swing. First swing felt clunky with the fourth ball, second swing felt better. With the third swing the fourth ball went way left No change in pitching technique, just made sure

Gave 5 balls a try today, result was ok. Might try it again this week.

LOL I'm all proud that I managed to get all 5 in the air. You launch them with ease and declare it simply ok. #Higherstandards ;-) [quote name="boogielicious" url="/t/78471/cmp-challenge-001-pitch-four-balls-at-once/30#post_1085356"]go for 6! [/quote]I believe the bar has been raised to 7.

I suspect some of y'all been practicing before filming. That's a no-no. I filmed it cold (figuratively and literally!), not even a practice swing as evidenced by the virgin snow. I'm pretty sure I can pull it off better now that I've experienced the first 3 attempts. Unfortunately the inch and a half of snow in my yard has now grown to a foot and a half...

There's no practicing allowed, but that doesn't mean you aren't allowed to take practice swings. I showed all the "practice" that I had beforehand in the couple practice swings before I first hit the balls. Today is when I plan to film the attempt for six or seven golf balls in my yard, and I'll do the same in showing all the "practice" I have.

Yeah, I wasn't suggesting that a practice swing wasn't allowed, just pointing out that I didn't take one. I figured I had three attempts so the first one would serve as better practice than a practice swing. I also flubbed the first one and dug in prior to the 4th ball which taught me more than an air swing would have. I was actually pleasantly surprised to get 3 on the first attempt and all 4 on the second and third. It's pretty easy, even with Carnival Stripper Knees. Lol.

Or maybe we're just better at pitching the ball than you :-P

Was that because if you had waited the balls would have been frozen to the ground?

go for 6!

Will have to try to find some nice bermuda fairway lies for that, no way with the kind of grass on the range.

Yeah, I wasn't suggesting that a practice swing wasn't allowed, just pointing out that I didn't take one.

I only took about 5 practice swings, gotta get that "brush" feel.

First attempts by @Golfingdad and @Shindig , We didn't have much time so they'll do their next two at another time.


I did a little better this time, remembering to use my 59 instead of my 54, and no doubt the mat assisted me a bit.  Also learned I'm way too steep on my pitches, so ... something to work on:

(Also, wearing nearly the exact same outfit. :8) )

    • Or just hit the club that can advance the ball as far as possible while not bringing the penalty strokes into play?
    • I will risk accuracy for distance if it’s still playable and I actually score better that way. If I hit it behind trees and lose balls frequently, maybe a shorter club off the tee is better, but going from a 6 iron to an 8 iron is a big difference. What I remember best from my best round to date was that I felt in control with the driver and could have at it without the fear if a push-slice. I hit fairways, rough and bunkers, but the advantage of being closer is big, even if I find a bunker or the rough. The courses also matters of course. Some people play regularly on courses with few trees and manageable rough. I’ve played on some really narrow courses where a bad shot often is a lost ball. You always have to evaluate the hole and where you are likely to land. On some holes the layout suggests an iron is better, or a wood. On other holes you can go for maximum distance with the driver. It’s easier to use numbers like that with the peofessionals than amateurs, so don’t get too caught up in decimals. Give it a try a few rounds and see what happens, but remember your shot cones and adjust club selections to the hole layouts.
    • In just the past week or so the pool noodles are out of the cups, and rakes are back out.  We've had food and beverage service on the deck all along, with limited indoor seating all along, and we still have limited seating indoors.  We're seeing a lot more two-person carts now as people are being vaccinated, but you can still ride as a single.  We're not planning any shotgun starts for tournaments yet, trying to avoid larger gatherings.  So we're progressing towards normal, not there yet. I think at the local Trump golf club, trolleys aren't allowed, caddies are highly encouraged.  Yet if you go to the home of golf, all the locals use trolleys.  Ah well, we all have our own opinions.
    • Don't worry the toes are in the sandals with the white socks...although sandals with black socks seem to be on the rise and more socially offensive especially in beach climes.
