    • Technically the result of this shot was not good. #11, a long par-3 on my home course, the start of what I, and some other regulars I sometimes get paired with, refer to as “hang on corner”. It’s a series of 3 difficult tee shots that can nuke a good round quickly. This hole usually plays 195-205 yards, and the back tees can be 240+ yards, but the back tees are also elevated so doesn’t play quite as long. Today from the middle tees the pin was 212 yards. Usually this is a 5-iron hole for me, slight downhill at around 200, but 212 pushed it to 4-iron. I picked a target, aligned myself and swung. I hit the purest long iron I’ve ever struck on course. Launched high, tracking perfectly toward the flag with a slight draw. But carried the green, one bounce on the back fringe and into some rough. Total distance was 228 yards, carry was 220 (stepped off the distance to the fringe). Flubbed a pitch, then 3 putt from 40 feet for a 5.   
    • Curious what you would change. Ditching driver/3W for 2 degree iron gaps on the short side?
    • The only time I would change if it were a executive course with a lot of par 3's. Otherwise the bag stays the same. 
    • Was he going to be able to get in? I saw this the other day:
