Playing club championship at Bluejack National. Birdied #5, 1 over for round walking to #8 tee, 120 yards ... 3 balls in the water, walked off #8 with an 11. Love this game.
I am 10 handicapper. Playing #3 on Starr Pass Rattler Course in Tucson. Hit a fine drive, second shot comes up short in waste area in front of green. The edge of the waste area has a rock wall lining it with the green up above this rock wall. The waste area is about 10 feet wide the whole length of this rock wall. I figure I can get my shot over the rock wall. Not so easy. Kept hitting the wall and falling back into this waste area. I started to get pissed. When I did get it out, it went OB. This happened around 15 years ago, so I don't recall every stroke, but my buddies were enjoying themselves on the green laughing at me. I took a 17. If I was smart, I would have hit the ball backwards into the fairway, then easily hit up on the green. The waste area caused numerous chunked or bladed shots due to the rocks. I sort of lost my temper and things just got worse. I now know to calm down and to take better shots. Haven't had anything close to a 17 since.
Club event, shotgun start which put me on 18 a difficult par 5. Hit it left just in the woods, tried to hit a 150 yard shot back to the fairway, hits a tree and OB, drop 1 try the same shot, hits a tree, OB. Chipped out safely, chunked it into the creek, dropped chipped it on and 1 putted for a 10. I liked Tiger's 10 better.
Handicap 12. Took a 17 without a penalty stoke.Good drive on a 350 yd. hole. Second shot hit the green but rolled back off on a false front green. Proceeded to to hit 3 shots up and back before staying on the green on the 4th shot.Then putted off the green. Hit three more shots to get on the green. Putted off again. Hit three more shots to stay on the green. Then three putted.
Bergen County (NJ) Amateur. 15th hole. Staring down the cutline. Mickey Mouse par 4. 310 yards, water in front of the green. Smooth 5-wood down the middle. 98 to the pin. Gap wedge...in the water. Sand wedge from the drop zone...in the water. Put another ball down in the drop zone, addressed the ball, didn't want to hit it. Backed away twice before skulling it over the green to the back bunker. Took three to get down from there.
Talk about embarrassing...Home course, left my approach almost under the lip of a green side bunker. Crazy stance, right foot in the bunker, left knee on the ground. Bladed the sand wedge across the road and off the pool railing some 50 yards past the green. It was mid July so the pool was packed! That was six or seven years ago and my buddies still remind me of it every time I get into a bunker.
It wasn't exactly the same, but I was probably angrier than Tiger. This was a good twenty years ago. I was a 12 to 14 handicap and I was playing this legitimate tough 9 hole course, except for the last hole, which was a through away, 90 yard par 3 with no trouble. I was playing the best I have ever played, and I made the cardinal sin of adding my score before I teed off. I was 2 under, and had a sand wedge in my hand and thinking anywhere on the green. Naturally, I sculled the shot into the parking lot behind the green! The ball ended up near my car, I through my bag in the car, didn't even say good bye to my friend and drove home!
Was in a 9 hole comps was on +3 on the 6th hole but then on the par 3 7th blasted a 6iron over the back and had a blind shot chunked it and ended up with a double but managed to get a birdie on the 8th and a eagle on 9th to come to +2!
I’m not sure it rivals Tiger’s high profile 10 on the 12th at ANGC, but I took a 9 at the 16th at the Stadium Course at PGA West and followed it up with a tap in birdie on the island green 17th hole. It epitomizes the consistency of my game.
I have your reverse. In the 16th greenside bunker in 2, somehow got a sand wedge to clear the cliffs of Normandy and stop about 1 foot below the hole. Missed the putt. On the 17th, my first was wet, my second was on the green but unplayable as it trickled into the rock boarder. Only good, it was a practice round.
