Best Shot of the Week


Recommended Posts

Played in a scramble and won. Last hole, par 5, and we had about 230 to the hole with a blind shot. Faded a 3 wood and hit is flush. We all got in the carts and went up to the green and the ball was 3 feet from the cup.. What a way to end the day..

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!!

Played in our monthly club tournament at Pecan Valley here in San Antonio. Get to the 16th(closest to the pin hole for the back 9) 232 par 3 with the pin back right with a bunker fronting the right front of the green. 240 to the hole absolutely nuked a high 4 iron with about a 5 yard cut, lands just long of middle of the green and releases back to 3 feet short of the hole. Absolutely flushed and wouldn't be able to reproduce the shot with a bucket of balls.

par 4 off the tee. hole was a dogleg left with a thin line of trees and a lake to the left. Tried to play a fade with my driver instead of using my hybrid or a 4 iron and clipped a branch on the tree. The ball ricocheted directly down, bounced off the cement cart path, went right back into the tree, got caught up in the tree, then fell in the water. not bad

The drive from tee had a bit to much draw in it and ended up in the semi-rough about 175 yards away from green. I had a pretty big tree in the way as well. I picked up my Mizuno mp-58 6 iron that I had borrowed from my local store to try out. The shot had the most wonderful ball-hit and went way over the tree and after that I lost sight of the ball because of the tree. My friend said "This one is going in the hole" and I just laughed at him, since I knew that it was way to the left on the green and the pin was in the middle of the green. But when I picked up my bag and started walking towards the green I saw my ball rolling towards the hole, and stopping 2-3 feet away from the hole. I just stood there gasping.

I missed the but afterwards but I were VERY happy with the approach from 175 yards!!

Two identical shots on two par 5 holes today... both from 255 out. Put them both on the front fringe with a nice little draw. I 2-putted for Birdie on both holes.

This is the first day I included the 16° Adams Tight Lies in the bag. Let's just say it will never be removed.

Hole 12, 316 yard par 4 with a hard dog leg left. There's a huge oak tree on left during approach shot so the play is to right side of fairway. Hit 3h a bit too far right, hit tree at end of fairway and it bounced back into the fairway. Had 137 left to middle, pin directly in back of bunker. Also had the oak tree to play with so had to make sure to stay right of it. Hit a beautiful 9 iron draw, avoided the tree, over the bunker and had 9 feet left for birdie. Promptly missed the putt - I hated my flat stick today.

Hit a terrible 5iron on the 172meter par 3 hole on my homecourse, leaving it 25 meter left of the green. Strolled down to the ball, took out my 60' and pitched in for a birdie. Larry Mize would approve!

This was just at the driving range, and it happened multiple times, but it was life altering for me. I have only been playing for a few months, but I have finally rid of my slice! I have always had to account for it while using my driver. I am happy to say that it is gone for good, and I am hitting 250+ every drive.

Is this about "good" shots, or do crappy mishit shots that end up ok work too? I completely mishit a 3 wood trying to get across a huge water hazard. Instead of getting up and clearing the water, this ball went completely paralell to the water about 4 feet up. I just about stopped watching as it hit the water, then hit the water again, then again...
The thing skipped 4 times before hitting the far bank and rolling up a slight incline for another 20 yards and back onto the fairway. So satisfying. Haha.

I was behind a tree on the 6th hole, and I mean directly behind it, about 100 yards away from the hole. I took out my 8I and shot right through the tree. The ball landed 8 feet from the hole. Two-putted for par.

Playing the first hole of the day for me (par 4), I somehow managed to get right next to the green in two shots. I proceeded to chip my ball over the cusp of the green and watched in fascination as the ball rolled steadily down and into the cup for my first ever birdie!

Thinned a screamer out of the greenside bunker. Hit the top of the flagstick and dropped down dead about a foot from the hole. Made the par and walked away whistling!

Best lucky shot of the week!! 4h from 185 into a green fronted by 100 yards of water. I mishit it approximately 170 watched it hit the water and barely bounce up onto the green.

    • Day 284: Worked a bit on my priority pieces with a new drill to feel the left leg push back. Then worked on tempo.
    • Ugh. They better keep him away from tall buildings for a few days…
    • Broke 90 today (from the white tees) with an 88.   Most consistent round ever...now to turn the 5's to 4's and the 6's to 5's....
    • Day 40 (05 Aug 21) - Solo round today as the rain had relented.  Course was pretty open as there was only one person ahead and no one behind.  Allowed me to be not rushed as I played 18 at the local course.  A good day with the putter which I did have two putters with me - my old DF992 and the Odyssey White Steel 5.  As I had time, I would set up a second ball once on the green, play out the original ball for the score and then putt the other ball with the other putter from the same distance.  Found I am much more accurate with the White Steel 5, so in the bag it stays.    
    • Second venture into the 80's today - with an 88 (45 front/ 43 back - par 71 course).   Had three double bogies and four pars, with all the rest being bogies.  This was the most consistent round I have played.  The course was wet from about 5" of rain the past few days, with the front night open to carts on fairways and the back cart path only.   This meant low to no roll-out on tee and approach shots.  Played one club longer when possible to have carry cover roll-out.  Putting was best ever with a total of 32 putts.  Course stats are pretty much what I have been having of late.  Biggest takeaway from the day, thinking through the "next" shot made the current shot much easier.
