So today we played a 4 club challenge. I chose a hybrid, 5 iron, 8 iron and 56. I putted with my wedge. Anyways, on one par four I ended up in the middle of the fairway 135 out. A 56 wouldn't get there, an 8 iron would hit the tree and a punch 5 iron wouldn't work because there was a valley in front of the Green.  I said maybe I could lay my 8 open way open open and flop it over the tree. I needed to knock 25 yards off the stock distance.   One of my partners said they wanted to see me try.  I figured I was going 50 yards right. Anyways this was the results.

There's a new shot to practise with.  I'd love to here other crazy shots that worked out for people.

All of my stories, shots and stories related to shots are best described as rational at best.   I have nothing to offer forth at this point.

First time for me today.  Par 3 I hit a nice iron right on line coming up just short and expect a kick on the green and hopefully a good look at a birdie....

Damn if it doesn't hit the sprinkler head a foot off the green and bound over the back.

As expected ruined a mint ProV1!!!!!

fair question .  It's a short par 4 with a big mature maple on the right side of the fairway. It blocks out a little more than half the fairway.  Normally you play short and left side,  short enough to go over or try to drive over the tree.

I did try a couple putts with my hybrid and 8 iron.  I found the shorter club put my eyes in a better position.

Here's another one.  My wife had only been playing a couple years.  She had a creek that was 110 and 120 to carry.  She pulled her hybrid which she hits 130 if hit perfect but with roll.  I tried to get her to lay up as there was no way she'd get over.  The couple we were playing with said "come on Scott let her try".  She hit a screaming worm burner that didn"t have a prayer.  Right before it goes swimming it hit a turtle and bounced over.

I guess I was wrong.

A fellow golfer's drive ended up in a row of trees on the right side of the fairway of a par 4. He was having one of those days where everything was going wrong. so of course, he decided to hit a punch up the alley, between the trees, instead of punching out side ways into the fairway. His shot was straight but was too high, hit a limb, and came arcing straight back to him. This is the last straw for him, he rears back and takes a baseball swing at the ball, makes perfect contact just above the hosel and snaps the head off his seven Iron. Glad this happened on 16 I was too busy laughing to hit any decent shots the rest of the round.

About a month ago I was playing 9 with a guy Ive known my whole life. Hes just bought some new irons that are replacing the other set hes used for legitimately 20 years and testing them out before a golf trip. On the 5th hole he pulls his drive left of the trees and has about 120 in and asks me if he thinks he can hit his new 9 iron over the tree in front of him and I confirm that I think he can. He pulls back and fires a bladed line drive 9 iron right into the center of the trunk and the ball flies back right at him at 100mph and he sticks his hand out and bare hand catches it on a fly. We were on the ground crying we were laughing so hard.
