Best Shot of the Week


Recommended Posts

The best shot of the week for me was today. It was on a 200 yard par 3 and I hit just to the left of the green. With my new CG14 60 degree wedge I chipped up and watched in excitement as the ball rolled into the cup! Was pretty fun day on the course today.

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 shot in the last week came on a 121 par 3 where I hit a nice draw with my PW. The ball's landing mark was literally 2 inches from the pin and stopped around 4 ft. I made the birdie putt and I was satistfied. Nothing awesomely cool, but I was satisfied :)

Mine happened yesterday morning at Mcleansboro Golf Club in Mcleansboro, IL. Hole 6, 452 yard par 5. From the elevated tee(which is not usually used on this hole) and with about a 10 mph wind at my back, i hit my longest drive ever, about 290 yards and only had about 160 left for my 2nd shot. Hit a flush 7 iron to the right side of the green, first ever par 5 reached in 2. Almost messed it up by leaving eagle putt about 5 feet short but made the birdie. I guess i used up all my mojo on that hole as I played the last 3 holes at +8 but still shot a 47 for 9 as I made no worse than a bogey on the previous 5 with 2 pars.

New Member signing in. Best shot I had this week was on the 4th, up-hill par 4, 308 yds. Tee'd off with my 6 for about 160-165 yds, 7 iron to the left side of the green about pin high. I found my self about 10 feet from the fringe of the green. Got my trusty Vokey, and lo-and-behold, I chipped it in for a Birdie. Great way to start off the round.

Cheers!

The two best balls I hit this week was when I stepped on a rake coming out of a sandtrap. (ba-dum-bump)

Played in a scramble over the weekend, team tied for second, but on the last hold, par 3, 135, you could bet money to hit the green, win and double your money, lose and you donated good money to charity, I bet 10 bucks and stuck it to 2 ft. and hit the right to left birdie putt, it was a good way to finish.

Have only played 9 holes this week, I scored pretty well for me but I can't say there were any notable shots. I'll go with a drive I hit on a par 5. Been struggling with the driver lately but really hit this one nicely. A little lower trajectory that ran out down the middle of the fairway, put me in good position to go at the green in 2 and I made birdie on the hole.

2 very memorable shots this week....on Tuesday I chipped in from about 20 yards for par on a par 5 (had hit my 2nd shot into the woods after a great fairway drive, ugh!) and then on Wednesday I drove my first par 4 of my life! The tees were up so it was only 288 to the front and I hit one of the more perfect drives of my life, one of those swings where you don't feel like you swung hard and the weight transfer just felt perfect.....I wound up about 20 ft past the hole and missed the eagle putt by about 9 inches, that would have been another first!

I hit my best shot about 20 minutes ago. 8I from 130. Been playing with the s&t; lately, and finally got one right. Center of the face swinging to right field. Nice high push draw. Landed in a trap next to the green, but it was the prettiest ball flight I have ever seen off from my club.

My best shot was my 2i for a 202 yard par 3. Greened it, missed the putt, made par. But the tee shot was beautiful, it sounded great, and felt like I hit the perfect spot on the club/ball.

with the wind at our back yesterday on a 325yd par 4 I decided to go for it( i always do and im usually to one side or the other of the green) Put one up in the wind straight at the pin. It flew to the edge of the approach and rolled about 15-20 feet leaving it about 4 feet short. Hit my put for eagle.

congrats u hit a long ball , but seriously nice eagle

    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.
