What’s the Best Feeling in Golf?

Finding a port-a-potty right before you’re about to lose breakfast from your arse . Worst either not finding one or passing up one thinking you can make it to the clubhouse. Had both happen.

When the group in front waves you up to the green and you knock it stiff.

Until yesterday I would've said flushing a 3 wood from the fairway, but now it is the absolute thrill of finally getting my first ace after 28 years of playing golf.  It was at Admiral Baker South Course #3, 169 yards with a 6-iron.  I'm still floating....

HIO without question. Only golf shot I've ever called my dad about after hitting it!

 

In the realm of routine golf: sticking an iron or wedge tight.

The best feeling in golf to me is a appreciation of what this game is truly about… the 6”s between your ears and how you react to adversity… like Moe Norman once said, “ it’s all about an alert attitude of indifference.”  Perfection is unattainable in this beautiful game but that doesn’t mean we won’t continue to strive for it… the most mentally demanding sport ever put on the face of this planet… like most things in life nothing is truly accomplished unless you’ve worked for it..

A few comes to mind... 

 

1. absolutely nutting a long iron on the perfect flight

2. Making a must-make score on the last hole to break 90/80, or your target score

3. Hitting a really solid fairway wood off the deck on a rope towards the green

4. Towering drive carrying a scary obstacle (large body of water or deep bunker)

5. Making a long putt to save up and down

6. Walking down the fairway breaking up the morning dew

Draining a big money putt that crushes the soul of the guys I'm betting. Hearing them groan and complain is like hearing angels singing! My follow up trash talking is just icing on the cake!

I'm very competitive, and I love the instantaneous "shut 'em up" shot.

 

Personal story: having 9 carryovers in a skins match with my Uncle and his friends, who have been in my ear since we basically teed off. I end up in the left rough off the tee, and I have one of them in my cart giving me a ration of s#!t for missing the fairway on the wrong side of the pin (fair enough, I had short-sided myself). I turned and told him I was going to take the skins on this hole. I get set up, proceed to hoist a 9 iron a mile high, and nail the flag stick dropping next to the cup for a blow-on-it-and-it'll-drop birdie. I made a few bucks that day and they all shut the hell up for the rest of the round and didn't bag on me when we played rounds later on, I earned a bit of respect.

A bag of left-handed junk.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
