    That's got to feel special.




    It still does. It was one of those shots where I said "that could be good" while it was in the air. I couldn't tell from where we were that it had gone in but when we got to the green there was no golf ball. So, I walked to the back bunker to see if it went long (which it hadn't, obviously) then I walked to the cup and my golf ball was waiting for me at the bottom of the hole.

    Ah the 3 put par. Golf's most disappointing moment.




    Yeah, but you'll always remember that 310 yard 2i shot.



    The memory of the three puts will soon be erased by many more 3-puts.

    Sunday, my buddy and I joined up with a single and were playing at a brisk pace (all walkers - under 3 hour pace). On 7 we caught up to the group in front of us and were waiting for the green to clear. The ranger came up to us and asked if we wanted him to talk to the group in front. I said that we just caught up to them and didn't understand why they were taking so much time on the greens which were punched earlier in the week. He hung out with us after the green cleared. My buddy hits his approach pin high 20' left. Our playing partner hits his approach to 12'. I hit my approach and it hits the back of the green and spins back to 4' below the pin. The ranger drives off and says "I think I'll go talk to them." We all grinned at each other and started laughing. We were not playing particularly well and looked like pro's to the ranger. Yes, I birdied.

    2: Longest usage ever - 60 holes (3 straight 18 hole rounds and then lost it on the 7th holes 4th round)

    3: Lowest cumulative score to par - (-11) over 3 straight rounds and 6 holes of the 4th round.

    there's a youtube video on rory mcilroy's workout by a personal trainer who worked out with rory. i did it this morning for the first time minus the pullups. i was toasted after 30 minutes but i felt great because it's very golf specific, starts with stretching and then does some explosive stuff.



    good luck!

    I once played in a charity event with a few celebrities in the mix. Catherine Zeta-Jones was playing in the group ahead of us. Decent game. She was walking off a par-3 green and I yelled, "Ferguson thinks you're alright." Without a second thought, she yelled back, "You tell Ferguson never to call me."

    I had a poor round today, seem to have developed a wild hook in the last two days...



    However, I hit four absolutely stunning 6 and 7 irons to within 6 feet from 156-179 yards. Arrow straight, excellent trajectory, three of them stopping on a sixpence, the fourth had to be sliced around a tree, judged perfectly and ran to pin high.



    Stupid game really isn’t it, crap score but some absolute gems of shots, one even got a clap from a guy waiting on the tee.

    I've gone 2 years without tinkering on my swing, and am hitting the ball better than ever.



    I've also saved about $500 on range fees and balls.



    Aside from the short game, I may never practice again.

    A group of guys from my church get together for a golf weekend, which happened to be last weekend. We play three days spending each night at our church camp. On Saturday we play a scramble so that guys get to know each other. My idea was to have a "skirt" hole, with the concept being if your tee shot does not make it to the forward tees, you have to wear a skirt for the entire hole.



    It so happened that the 18th was the hole we picked. Long story short, I was in the last foursome and there was one skirt left on the tee box. My tee ball was long and left but cleared the forward tees. Seeing it was my idea to introduce the skirt hole, I thought the least I could so was wear it in the hole.



    We are on the par 4 in two about 40 feet from the hole. The other three guys missed to putt which left it up to me.



    Boom! Nothing like walking in a 40 footer with your putter raised wearing a long pink shirt in front of 25+ golfers. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    My top golf league team beats the Topgolf pros team almost every week. 😂. To be fair though, we have: a former mini tour player, 2 class a pga pros, 2 pga level 2 guys, and my hacking self. I know it’s not golf, but the leagues are pretty fun.

    I got my first HOI on Thursday on the 2nd hole at Longshore in Westport, CT. I hit an un-wrx-like 8 iron to a mid pin at 146yds to a morning dew covered green. We couldn't see it land due to the reflection off the dew so when we got up to the green we were looking in the rough behind the green. My playing partner went to check the pin and motioned me over. It didn't hit me until I saw the ball in the hole. Exhilarating to say the least.

    FINALLY after taking 9 years away from the game and coming back last spring I walked off 18 today shooting even. Played medium tees so the slope was only 120, but the starting temp. was in the 40's still and the wind was 12-15 and gusty. I really wanted under par and had birdie putts of 1,6,12, and 15feet on the last 4 holes and only made one while missing the other 3 by a cumulative 8 inches or so. Of course always, would have could have should have...BUT I am very happy to be wrapping up the season playing my best golf of the year.

    Today was 5C (41F) with wind. Played at Rolling Hills Challenge Par 70 rating of 62.8. Shot a 68, 2 under par. Tees were forward, but greens were punched. Hit only 9/18 but had 25putts. My best round this cold and late in the year. Swinging easy and taking more club helped. And I was using a Wilson Elite 50 ball lol
