    The best shot of the round

    The old thread was getting too big so I closed it up and opened a new one. You can reference the old thread here: https://www.thehackersparadise.com/fo...-Of-Your-Round


    What was the single best shot of your round today? The one that stands out over all of the others.

    I wish I could start, but I haven't played yet this year. Hopefully I can add to this thread on Saturday.

    I made pars on #10-16. #17 is a 155 yard Par 3 that requires all carry over water, a hole that has killed previous good rounds. I hit a 6 iron to four feet and made the birdie to go one under for the nine. Unfortunately, I bogeyed #18 but still shot even par. 76 for the round.

    Even par is a great score for a double digit handicap. Congrats.

    BTW, what course are you playing that has a par of 76. I've never seen anything over 72. Does it have a lot of par 5s?

    I think he was even par for the back nine.

    After a lack luster 42 on the front, on the 10th hole I had about 160 yds into the pin. Striped a 6i to 4 ft for a birdie. Shot 39 on the back.

    I was 112 yards from the pin (on a simulator), and got to within 2 feet with my pitching wedge. Great feeling.

    Yesterday had a par 3 with strong right to left winds into a green that had water front and right (wrap around).

    175 yards and hit niteowl's 545 5i. Beautiful shot that started out just over water and then wind pushed it left landing on the green around 18 feet from the flag.

    That was when the 545 lust began. :)

    148 yard par 3, 1st hole. Pretty 8 iron right to the front of the green & ran up just like I planned it. Left me 10' for the birdie that I promptly lipped out but took my par & went to the box.
    Man, I love these irons.

    Been working on my 60 around the green and approach shots when close. Finally hit one perfect today came in high landed hoped forward about 1ft and then checked up right next to the hole. It felt great to finally hit the shot I thought I would never hit. Now to only do it more often

    Yesterday, 14'th hole, stroke 1. Hit a perfect 3w, nice high cut around a 90 dogleg at about 210yards. Hit it past the corner and in perfect position. V3 said 166metres/185yards into the wind and slightly uphill. I hit a low stinger type 4i and watched it track straight at the hole. It came in nice and soft and ended up 2feet from the hole. Best part is that there was a group of walkers watching and they all applauded, felt awesome!
    Edit: Walkers, as in hikers, not Walking Dead, lol.

    #9 par 5 my 2nd shot landed in the green side bunker & short sided. Took my 58*, opened it up and splashed it out to about a foot or so for birdie.

    #5 Par5, second shot.

    Had a good drive, rangefinder told me 207m to go. There's a big tree right in the fairway that I have to either hit over or through.. Through is never an option, so I went over with a hard hit hybrid. Little open stance, hips and shoulders aligned, take away just a bit on the inside and BOOM! Nice little draw, over the tree going straight at the flag. Didn't see it land, but when we walked up it was less then 2m from the flag, just to the left of it. Put fell too :)

    That shot made my day!

    Had a lip-out for an Albatross last week on the sixth (also par5), now if my short game would be just a bit better I might actually cut my handicap down to <5

    #13 450 Par 4:

    Tee shot was a 3w fader that found the fairway. Had about 210 left and an nice, high, straight 4w got me a GIR. Rolled in the putt with my 8i since I had forgotten to stick the putter back in the bag the night before.

    FTR, I tried to hit that putt again with the balls I had in my pocket and couldn't get any closer than 4ft.
