I usually hit it off a Tee and have 50/50 luck with hitting the green. I recently started hitting it straight off the grass. I am liking this better and having better results. Sunday I hit 3 of the 4 on the course I played. The 4th hit the green and rolled off into the fringe so it was an almost. Of the 3 I hit, all were within 15' and I pared them all... 2 missed birdie by 2"! The one in the fringe I ended up with a bogey. With good ball striking this season and a big effort to be in the breaking 90 group, I think that the tee on the 3's is not good for me. I sometimes hit it fat, hit it thin or just don't hit it well period. My irons play is pretty good and I have my distances dialed in pretty good so it makes sense to hit it off the grass as that's what I would be doing on every other hole inside 200yards.
Time to get your brag on. What is the longest par 3 hole you have birdied (or aced if that was a long one)? I felt pretty good yesterday rolling in a birdie putt on the 237 yard 16th hole. Now the disclaimers - the hole plays a bit downhill and I had a breeze at my back. Took a decently struck driver for me. Plus the putt was at least 35 feet so it was a fair tee shot and a great putt.

It's boring, there's too much fawning over guys who play worse golf than I do at this point in their lives, and I get tired real quick of watching the kids running around. I can see how it could be a huge pain in the butt to a current competitor, and simultaneously really enjoyed by past-their-prime guys. What do you think?
