Let's say this is the result of your second shot on a par four. What do you score for the hole and how? The coach of another college asked me this yesterday, after a player sent him this post. I gave him the answer, but I thought it might be fun to discuss it here. Go ahead, have at it.
This year I decided to play from the tips at my golf course and the one hole it really affects is the par 4 number 6 hole. Playing the blacks adds about 65 yards from the whites, and sets you back in a little tunnel of trees. The tee box is small and the out of bounds is 6 feet off the left side of the tee. I have had more balls OB on this hole than any hole this year. Even if I make decent contact, the ball might go 230 yards at most. It is the strangest scenario. It doesn't look that bad but, dammit it is in my head now. I can't get over the dread of this hole, even though I birdied it the time before the last round. I hit it left into the trees the last round and the OB, en-route to a 7.... It is a relatively easy hole from the whites but from the tips it is quite challenging. Anyone else have a punishing hole for them?
Just saw a high a nice high res shot of one of the holes on on TV for the albertsons boise open. The hole edge looks immaculate. A very sharp edge. At my home course and any courses I've played in this area, the hole edge has always been at least slightly compromised. Usually a little frayed/bent down slightly. Sometimes some decent nicks in the edge. Does a sharp hole cut offer an advantage or disadvantage? I know some people are sticklers about the hole and I've even played with guys that would always go up to the hole and "repair" it to their liking before putting. Very slow behavior. I just putt at the hole whatever condition it's in unless I see a nice chunk out of it or a severe case of someone stepping on the hole. I'm curious if anyone has any data on compromised holes and the make % shift? I know this is splitting hairs, but this is more (almost exclusively) of a curiosity than how I feel like it may be impacting my personal scores. Although, I do have a LOT of lip-outs nowadays.
Today i was playing at the local golf course in my city and i shot an eagle on a par 4. Easily my best shot ever by far. I started golf about 2 to 3 months ago so im not really the greatest and i still have yet to get a birdie. But i have now gotten an eagle... an eagle before my first birdie i actually thought i over hit the shot out of play so i put down a new ball but then my playing partner said "hey you got a callaway right"? And i was like yes? Yes i do? And bam eagle and dont know if it will happen again for a long time (im 15 btw) so ya has this happened to anyone else lol and im gonna keep searching for that birdie!!
