170 Yd par 3 across a pond, hit the flag stick and hit the green 3 inches from the cup...….    Unfortunately, it rolled 5ft away, but, fortunately, made the putt !!! 

2nd best that day was a 270 yd drive that did end up in the fairway..  Prob one of the best drives I've had to date.

I hit a handful of good shots this week, but my favorite in the approach on the par 5 5th hole (my 23rd hole of the day). I was about 90 yards from a back pin position and instead of hitting a 1/2 wedge of some kind, I decided I had plenty of room to work with on the green and hit a chippy PW on and it rolled to pin high about 15' to the left. Executed exactly as I envisioned it.

The three guys playing in front of me waved me up to play through.  After dumping my tee shot about five yards short of the green, I had about 60 feet left to the pin.  I took out my 8 iron and hit a little running pitch that landed on the front of the green and tracked straight to the hole, hit the pin, and stopped about nine inches from the hole.

From about 178 out on the hardest hole on the course. 5 hybrid that ran out about 15 ft. Left the downhill birdie putt about .5 inch short. Was still really happy with par here.

I played Salem CC this week. On the second hole, from 25 feet off the green, I made a 70 foot putt. It was a tiered green with the flag on the lower tier on the left side about two to three paces from the ridge. I did AimPoint and felt the best way to get close was to play the break off the ridge. It rolled well off the green and proceeded exactly as planned but instead of getting close, it went in. Speed was perfect too.

My putting the whole day was great. I wish my driving was.

Short-sided in a bunker left of the hole on a par 3. Only 8 feet over the lip to the flag. Opened the 56* sand wedge way up, and trickled the ball to 2 inches. Best, -Marv

Topped my 4-wood off the tee on a 340 yard Par 4. Had 240 left to the flag, downhill. Could see the top of the flag from where I hit but couldn't see the green. Crushed my 3-hybrid, knew it was online. Delighted to find it 2 feet from the hole. Drained the birdie putt.

My best shot of the week, or really best shots, were remarkably in the same round. Yesterday on the par-4 4th hole, I had a 9I third after topping my tee shot and hitting a 7I second. The ball drew just like I intended and finished 10 ft out. Two putted for five, which I was happy with after the topped drive. Then, a few holes later, on the par-5 seventh, I hit a so-so drive and had 250 in (the hole was about 465 from whites). I caught all of my 3W, maybe a little more, and finished just a few yards short of the green. Failed to make the up-and-down.

Possibly the best shot of my life...

7th hole at Oaks of Palm Aire is some 320 yards today (est) from the green tees.  But that includes a considerable dogleg, so you can short it.  While there are only a few trees, the flight takes the ball past scary obstacles like OB, water, and a 7-story building! (see attached image)

I recently posted about October winds.  Yeah, this one was blowing right to left and a bit behind me.  My mates each hit the sane shot on what is ultimately a pretty routine par 4.  I teed off last to chuckles as I declared my intent. It was only about 225 to carry the water, so it was not as loony as it seems at first blush. Well I sent it perfectly straight at about a 15 degree loft I would estimate, with the wind pushing it just a bit left at the end. (It really was not quite as close to the apartment building as the image makes it appear, but it was still crazy to even aim it so close.)  The ball bounced once in front of that small center bunker, then over it.  Pin was in the front/left.  Ball settled near the back/right/center of the green and became the most fun birdie I have ever had!
