Not quite your sauce but i thought i hit a beautiful wedge shot from 137 in a tournament yesterday and went long . Iím standing on the next tee box and realized i added 8 yards to the number instead of subtracting and thus you have a 121 shot downwind instead of a 137 shot . No wonder i  went long

story would have been epic with a club twirl and  a "BE RIGHT" or "BITE"

Where do we stand on pulling the pin for a chip shot and then missing? Can we pass it off as speeding up play?

Also, walking in putts but they miss... Were you that confident or just speeding up play by getting to your ball quickly to tap (hopefully) it in?

I must admit, I flew a green this past weekend after asking for it to be good... Obviously I feigned disbelief and then blamed the wind...

Last Friday in my money game after hooking my tee shot into the woods on 18, taking an unplayable, and the chipping to the fairway.  Had 160ish to a back left pin with water in front of the green.  Hit what what I thought was a way too fat 7 iron taking a monster divot, turned my head in discussed with a GD Grant you idiot walk to the cart to get sand knowing that ball was wet.  Playing partners were like wtf your 10' past the pin. Made the putt which saved me in $30 of presses, best bogey I've made and felt like a jackass all at the same time.

I live for the day I'll be able to hit a wedge shot, say "go in", lean the club against my bag, and start walking, all before the ball lands. That day will never happen but I can dream...

Did something pretty similar to the OP with my weekly 4some. Twirled, ball hit the lip of the bunker and rolled back in. Comment from playing partner was "man that wind must've shifted above the trees" Embarrassing, but hilarious to me.

I almost always pull the pin on chip shots. Too many times I've hit the pin only to have it shoot off and not go in. Not a matter of thinking I'm always going to make it, and not a failed attempt to speed up play, just preference. Especially if the flag is leaning one way or another.

Speaking of a full club short, during the same round I had an approach around 125m to a front pin location. I hit a great shot just right of the flag which I was staring down with pride as it descended.
It landed at least 10m short of the green. I said to my playing partner " hmm , I thought I hit that great,I thought 9 was enough".
As i turned the club upside down to return it to the bag I notice quite clearly that it had PW stamped on it.

I don't have any 'tour sauce' stories, but I did the opposite of this one time. I had a 9-iron distance over water and I brought an 8 and a 9 from the cart just in case. I decided on the 9 and hit it really fat, (like orca fat :)) and it carried the bunker in front of the green and rolled to three feet for birdie. Turned out I hit the 8 somehow. I was happy for the birdie, but I know I didn't deserve that one.

I played with a guy who would do " I made the putt walk" with putter raised on almost every putt. WoW.
