FJ #1 Outerwear in Golf

  • My best shot of the year, would have to be every shot of my my only round this year!  I have not been able to play much in grad school, so that one round I will cherish until I play again after graduation!

  • Mt best shot all year was when I holed a bunker shot for birdie on the 15th hole at the Cypress Point Golf Club on my birthday....bounced once, hit the pin and dropped straight down into the cup....  What a memorable day to play that course.. bucket list event.  

  • My year has been a horrible one for my golf game. However, I did have one highlight that stood out: my best shot this year was on a par 5 at my local go-to golf course. It was my third shot into the green, with 100 yards left. I try to set up my approaches with 100 yards in order to use my punch shot with wedge in hand. The ball was struck perfectly, hitting down on it, producing a nice half dollar bill sized divot. After landing about 2 feet from the hole, the ball bounced once and then came to a complete stop. I love seeing that sudden stop on wedge shots; this is why this is my best shot of the year. I executed what I wanted to do with that ball.

  • Well when you get lucky you know it, that is how I got my first ace it a 155

  • The best shot was what I believe my first Ace on a 173 par 3. I didn't see where the ball went and they said they found it in the hole (4 and 6yrs old) - still not sure if I believe them

  • Best shot... easy.  Uphill par 4 on my home course, about 180 to the green.  Hitting 5 wood, the ball hit the hill in front of the green, hopped up, and rolled to a foot.  Made the putt.

  • My best shot happened during a lower flight club championship match play contest. my drive ended behind a tree so I had to punch it back out to the fairway leaving myself 69 yards to the middle. My opponent was just off the green  in two so I wanted to give myself an opportunity to make par and possibly halve the hole. I was hitting up to an elevated green so when I punched it up and saw it bounce on the green where I was aimed, I was happy with the shot and went to retrieve my divot. On my way back to replace the sod, some guys up by the hole cheered and I turned around to see what had happened. They started to yell that it went in!

  • my best shot this year, was leaving B.C. for Arizona to play golf in the winter.

  • My best shot of the year was on the 1st hole of the league championship match.  I had a small window between an overhanging branch to an elevated green of about 18 inches to a tight pin.  I just kept focused on the opening that I wanted to play the ball through, kept my head down through the shot and it just ticked a leaf, but due to the firmness of the shot and trajectory, the ball landed on the green, stopped about 3 feet from the pin, which I proceeded to knock in for birdie, to the dismay of my competitor, who thought the shot would have stymied me and would have ended up as a bogie or worse.  Needless to say, his amazement at the execution of the shot was all that I needed to gain a psychological advantage and rode that to victory and the league championship!  

  • 7 iron to the 12th hole at Alto Lakes G & CC in the finals of the match play championship to 6 feet.  Opponent conceded  hole & match.

  • 3 iron second shot to a par 5, at a pivotal moment in the match. Struck so pure and so perfect, low and pierced through the wind, that the trickle over the greenside bunker was that much sweeter. Knocked in the eagle and demoralized our opponents. Made a 3, could have been a 6. No guts, no glory!

  • My best shot of the year was also the most frustrating! I had an eight iron into a 152-yard par three.  Our group arrived at the green and noticed that my ball was hanging halfway over the cup :-)  I was a literally a quarter roll away from a hole-in-one. After waiting a few seconds for a stiff wind or a ground shift, I tapped it in.  The consolation birdie was still worth three skins and a much lighter bar bill. All in all, a great season of golf.  I hope Footjoy feels the same. Happy holidays.

  • My best shot of the year came in my clubs member guest.  With one hole to play we were 1 up.  Our opponent was about 10 feet for birdie to pull the match all square.  I made my 30ft birdie putt and put the pressure on our opponent to make or go home.  He ultimately missed and we won the match!!!

  • Ace from 156 yards.  Titleist AP1 9-iron, ProV1, FJ gear.

  • My best shot ever was at hole # 7 at Pebble Beach (Par 3) where I came within inches of a hole in one!!!!! What a thrill!
