Made a hole in one yesterday! 9 iron from about 160. I basically flew it in the cup. The ballmark destroyed the side of the hole. We saw it bounce from the tee and disappear, so I'm not 100% sure how

Kind of cold wet day, hole 17, 195 yards, hybrid, one bounce, ace 

116 yard par 3. Wedge. Lands two feet right of the hole, takes one hop left and . . . It's in the hole!! Bedlam on the tee box!!

My best one was a 39 paces putt. As in it took my 39 normal steps to get to the hole. It broke hard to the left, all while going down hill..
I shaped it around a bunker that intruded into the green, and it came down hill dead center into the hole.

Runner up would have to be a 35 yard pitching wedge that bounced, hit the pin and dropped. It was in front of the club house, so I got a warm applause from everyone that was sitting out there drinking.

I rarely make tricky putts, so the putting wins.

My best was a 30' putt for par on the very first hole of only the third game I've played in 8 years. It was about three weeks ago and was total total luck. It was a Par 4, and I was on the green in three sitting on the fringe. My wife was still chipping her way up so I figured I'd tap the ball toward the hole abit and get a little closer. Needless to say, it roll all the way in. Best shot of my life, super super ecstatic.

220 yard 4-wood low fade around a tree on a dogleg right to greenside fluffy lie, right next to a small green.

From there a lob wedge to 10 inches for basically a tap-in birdie.

Sweeter for me, as it came on a hole that's seen its share of personal meltdowns.

... and no doubt will do again. No illusions about replicating that one very often, but that's the fun.

So I played 9 holes yesterday with my cousin, we played the back nine and it started rough. But by hole 15 I started to improve. Finally on the 17th I borrowed my cousin's Callaway Perfect Plus 3 wood and hit a dead straight drive down the fairway. When I got up to the ball I realized that I hit roughly 260 - 270 yards... that felt gooooooooddd.

I sucked all day in my tournament today (shot a 93), but I won $45 on the 14th hole closest to the pin by sticking it within 6 feet. Anytime I win money with a shot, it's got to be my best shot of the week.

Toughest par 3 on the course, about 180 yds. uphill, have to carry a pond, traps on both sides of the green. I hit my 5 iron about 10 feet from the pin. That's the best I've ever done on that hole. Yay

Yesterday on the 18th hole I had an awkward stance over the ball, it was below my feet and I had to move my shoulders almost over the ball. Ended up sticking my 9 iron to 5 feet, and made the putt for a 71 :)

I was playing the 9th hole just before a shot-gun start league was starting so their were four guys sitting in their carts watching me hit my tee shot on the Par 3 9th. They said they had a prize for closest to the pin and if I put it close to put their name down(jokingly).

So I step up with my 9 iron and hit the most pure shot I've ever hit. Right at the pin hits two feet behind it and takes on hop and spins back to about a foot long. Easiest birdie putt I can remember having.

I was off the green to the point where a putter was not feasible, so I had a 40' chip. I grabbed my 7 iron and gave it a go. Lipped the cup, leaving my par putt about a 1' from the hole.

Always nice to start out with a par.

Unfortunately, the rest of the round went to crap. But I managed to par both of the par 5's (only played 9).

I was on a par 5 a couple of weeks ago. I hit my 3rd shot, a 70 yard approach into the green. I nailed it close to the pin..... when I got to the green, part of the ball was hanging over the cup, but not enough for it to have dropped. Had I got 1 CM more of roll, I'd have nailed my first eagle. That was the easiest birdie putt I have ever had.

You've got to love those easy birdie putts... Congrats on your's!

Played like crap yesterday but did drive the ball 293 and 284 on level ground and 271 uphill. So that was cool. It was nice being right next to the green on the 2 par 4s and having a reasonable shot in on the par 5. I can see how distance really does help after that round.

I played a hole that I usually have a lot of trouble with. It requires a long drive over a pond, and I hit the ball over 250 yards, easily clearing the pond and setting myself up for a nice second shot.

My best shot that I have ever had was at Brown Deer Country club in Dallas Texas many years ago during tournament play on the 8th hole par 5. My game was screwed up from #1, it was hot, periods of light rain, my feet were wet and I was frustrated. I was the 2nd one to tee off. Drove it about 175 out and so did the rest of them. About 480 to the approach of the green with a mild dogleg to the right and another to the left. I blew my second shot big time and was very embarassed. I was in the short rough on the right next to a big tree. I short pitched out and was left with still about 200 to the approach. Everyone else was waiting to see what I was going to do. I still was almost in the middle of the dogleg left slightly downhill and had another tree to contend with. I thought 3 wood then 3 iron and bend it around a bit,maybe a 7 and lay up. I picked my 7 iron and just walked up to the ball and hit it and it was the prettiest site that I could have ever imagined. Had a perfect tail and just the right elevation and speed and at 1st I though that I ended up in the approach trap on the right but NO NO I cleared it and ended up about 2 feet beyond the cup. I putted in for par. I was the only one that made par on that hole. My game totally came together after that. IT'S A MIND SET AND I HAVE TO KEEP REMINDING MYSELF OF THAT.

Both mine and my buddy's were on the #1 rated handicap hole today. Mine was a drive about 260 uphill (about 10 yards) with a great roll on it.

His, however, was a 65 foot putt up a tier that just barely lipped out and was left with under a foot for bogey (his best hole of the day, oddly enough)

    • I grew up 30 min from the stadium and would go to 10+ games per year every year as a kid, have been on the field, the locker rooms, offices, etc, have been to numerous playoff games including game 7 of the 2016 World Series. They've been my favorite team my entire life. All that being said, I understand the name change and don't have a problem with them changing the name. Some of the reactions I've been seeing on social media have been ridiculous. The team being called a different name changes very little about the actual team IMO. Given the choice between the Guardians and the Spiders though, I'd probably choose Spiders, just a personal preference. I will say though that I'm not a fan of the logo. I'm not artistic in the slightest but I feel that they could have come up with a better logo than what they did. Hopefully it evolves over time into something better.
    • Much better than Washington Football Team!
    • Same for me on past 3 rounds on my Classic. They said to email them log files but there was no data in the files.  I am awaiting @DaveP043review on GG Pro as that is my next option.
    • It’s not valuable. It’s expected. News flash: the sun will most likely rise in the east today. Vaccines don’t really ever have “long term effects except continuing to protect you. We understand immune response pretty well and you have none of the vaccine in your body after a short while.
