Best Shot of the Week


Recommended Posts

I've started, finally, after 35 years of life, learning to leave my ego in my pocket and just focus on hitting a pure shot, rather than a hard one.

I've been shaping shots like mad. Taking one less club than "normal" and throwing darts.

Loving the game right now.

I was 5 yards off the green on a par 4. About 40' from the pin. Ball was pretty deep. I hit it pure with my 58* and it caught the break and dropped for birdie. Almost did it again later the same round. Hit the pin and rolled out about a foot.

Hit one of the best shots of my life.

It was a short par 4 and I crushed a hybrid down to 100 yards out.
I hit a 54* that bounced in line with the hole. Bounced past it, and sucked back to 3 feet. Got a few claps since the green is in-line with the 1st teebox and there were a load of people waiting to tee off.

My best shot was not on the golf course. I was chipping the golf ball in my front yard with my 9 iron and my friend was in my garage (about 15 feet away). My garage is about 5 feet higher the my front yard. So anyways I called out my friends name and as he was turning around I hit him in the stomach with the ball. hahah

That's great, made me laugh.

Mine was today on #2 a Par 4 351 yards. Hit a 250 yard drive dead middle of fairway. I clubbed up from a 56* to 52* because there is a bunker in front protecting green. Had 125 to back green, which slopes back to front. Hit a perfect, 3/4 52* to within 12 feet, parred the hole.

7 iron from about 160 on a decently tricky par 3. The ball landed about 6 feet past the pin and spun back to 6 feet in front of the pin. It was a wonder it a) didn't hit the flag on the fly, and b) didn't roll into the hole. It much have missed by inches at the most.

First shot on the course with my new Nike SQ Machspeeds. At the 150 stick I pull the 7iron (figuring I would get 135 max in the air and then it would roll to the green). I hit it flush and the ball takes off like it was shot out of a cannon, lands on the front of the green, and rolls right past the hole to the back fringe. Not a terrible great shot, but I got roughly 20 yards more carry on that shot than I used to get with my old set of irons so I got excited.

Waialae Country Club

15th hole, 415 yards.

I drove a ball down the left side that had a soft fade (a little wind aide too) and ended up in the center of the fairway 82 yards to the center of the green.

I also rolled in a long downhill putt from the fringe but that felt a little lucky...

Was on the 8th hole at my home course, par 3 173 yards. I hit a 7I far right to the hole, and then a PW into the bunker on the right side of the green. Took out my 64* wedge and shot. The ball went up, landed softly on the green, and rolled into the hole.

Best was a 20 yard pitch shot with my 60° wedge after underclubbing on a 150 yard par 3. I was short-sided, going uphill about 5 feet, with a bunker's right edge a foot or two to the left of the line between the ball and the hole. Pin was probably 8 feet from the fringe, no more. Aimed right at the inside of the fringe, landed it maybe two or three feet past that, and watched it roll to about 8 inches, just past the hole. Easy tap in for the first par I've ever carded on that hole in probably a dozen attempts!

Had a chip-in from about 15 feet off the green to a pin about 10 feet from the fringe. Beautiful shot that landed right and the scooted left and had just enough speed to drop into the cup.

Par 3 148 yards at Stone Meadows in White Haven, Pa. Pull a 7 iron and hit it perfectly straight and very high, lands about 15 feet past the pin and rolls back to 10 feet. First time I have ever made a ball spin backwards. Damn, that was a great feeling.

After a less than impressive lay up into the start of the tree line, laying in the rough at 179 yards. I took my 5 iron and 3/4 swing with the ball back in my stance and hit a low boring shot that nailed the green and 2 putted to save par.

    • Just 3 birdies needed to complete the challenge, time is running out though. One hole the 15th I have never had a birdie on it. It is the index 3 I think and it is a long par 4 with the toughest green on the course. Fingers crossed I complete it this year. My best year since I've started playing without doubt.

    • Too early to speculate on Captain for 2023?   Captain Selection is not something I have followed in past so not even sure when Captain gets announced.  I understand there is a vote of the PGA Executive Committee/ R&A Who will be Ryder Cup captains in 2023? We’ve got a hunch. It’s never too early to speculate who will assume the top jobs at the 44th Ryder Cup in Rome and beyond. Just for my reference, below is a piece on how the captains are ultimately selected, but my question above is more who will they consider and ultimately who will be chosen. How are Ryder Cup captains decided? Inside the selection process Few people have a larger role on the ultimate outcome of Ryder Cup week than each team's captain. Here's how they're chosen.    
    • So I can now report on my goals for the year. 1  Did not win the senior club championship.   Actually played in the "regular" division and totally played like shit. 2   Played well enough in the provincial seniors to get to the Nationals 3  Did play in the Canadian Senior Amateur.   Pleased to report that I made the cut and was in the top 15 goin into the final round.  Didnt finish well but was right there. 4  Scotland trip is all planned and deposits are in place.   Here we go baby!   Proud to say that the goals were pretty well addressed this year.   Still some things to reach for next year.
