I had the best shot I've ever had today. :clapp:
Par 4 - 340 from the forward tees - slight dogleg to the right with water on both sides of the fairway. I got a par, which is a really big deal for me, but the best part was that I chipped in from 40 yds out. :blob:

So, you have been practicing your short game, and it paid off. Good for you.:clapp:

My best shot today was hitting the pin from 210 with my 3W. Now here's the kicker, the ball bounced off the pin, and wound up in a green side bunker. Settled for bogey on that hole.:banghead:

Don't laugh, but my brother taught me how to chip over the phone. He gave me very detailed easy to understand instructions.

I saw one of those Niblicks at "Dicks'" yesterday. They wanted $199.00 for that critter. Must be a pretty good club in the hands of the right person.:clapp:

We have a video on our site under THP TV that gives very detailed instructions via video from our teaching professional and a great easy way to improve chipping and pitching.

Really? They are much cheaper at most of the other places we have seen.

Nice shot Diane!

My best shot today was a 15 foot putt with a couple feet of break for Par.

Hey Diane - congratulations on that. Doesn't happen very often I know, but when it does it's such a rush. How did you react? Was it a jumping up and down with your hands in the air shouting or a sort of shocked, motionless feeling of wow, it went in?

Ty - I'm a jumping up and down person. I like to cheer for myself. I know - it's embarassing.

I have never had a hole out from more then about 20-40 yards. I did hit the top of the flagstick today. 145 out, 9i...top of the stick and rolled back off the green to the fringe. At least I kept the par.

I decided to be an agressive putter today and had some great 10 ft saves for par.

I finally chipped one in today on #18, it was from the fringe and only for a bogey but it still felt good.

Maybe we are the same person--I've been known to do the happy dance.

Saturday I managed to hit a super 9 iron shot on #15, 135 yards, I hit about 6' past the pin and sucked it back up to ≈3', which I drained for a good par. That was an awesome feeling.

After topping my tee shot and having it go about 150 yards, I hit a sweet 5 wood from a fluffy lie to about 20 feet. I missed the birdie putt though...
