Approach shot to a double green. I check the yardage to the flag with my rangefinder, pull my seven iron, mishit it and I'm thinking "that's way short". It turns out I was shooting the wrong pin (further away), and my ball ended up about 8 ft from the actual pin for my hole. Missed the birdie putt.
Had a shot in league play last year: 140 yards in, over water for most of it. Hit a 9 iron fat and was convinced it was heading into the pond, but I got just enough on it to catch the rock border surrounding the water. Took a huge hop off the rock, onto the green and ended up about 5 feet from the pin. I remember that shot really well, but don't remember if I made the follow up putt.
I can think of a few instance where I ended within a few feet of the hole via wormburners that rolled out straight on line but never got more than a foot off the ground. You just have to look at your playing partner and say, "Hey, that'll play"
