  • Single Greatest Throw...

    We all love to boast just a little bit, so here is a great place for it.

    What was your best single throw ever? Be sure to include: course, hole, shot, disc and result.

That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

        Right. Pick one and brag about it, Hiatt.

          My greatest throw recently was the roller I threw on #1 at Pier last week with my 160g Champ Sidewinder. It landed at about a 40į angle to the ground and somehow stood up, worked its way around the trees and up the hill, ending up 10 feet to the left of the basket (short position, obviously). And I'm not exactly a roller specialist.

            Most recently my best shot was on the 1,187 ft hole at Milo McIver. I threw three rollers to park the long position for a tap in birdie. My third roller was probably most impressive. The only time I have had a 4 in the long.

                One that sticks out in my memory was last year's Lakewood Open, hole 13 in the B position. For those not familiar with the course, this is a scary hole b/c it's a peninsula green, OB about 7 or 8 feet directly behind the basket, and the basket is on a slope so it can be VERY easy to roll OB. While not a long hole, you see lots of people throw sally upshots and take the easy 3 when they'd usually be in birdie range.

                Anyway, I think I'd just 3'ed Geezer (the 600'+ signature hole at Lakewood), which isn't easy to do. First on the pad, I threw a sidearm out there, fast and flat, an Orc if memory serves. It faded eventually, towards the basket, but far enough that I possibly could have thrown the hole long and gone OB. After everyone else had thrown their drives, I went to scout out my disc, worried that I'd see it sitting way OB. As it turned out though, the disc had gone exactly basket high, and skipped/rolled to rest leaning on the pole, nestled in the divot for the anchor. Quite possibly, if that little divot hadn't been there, I would have rolled OB. BUT, that divot was there, and I had one easy birdie...and unlike a lot of my good shots, it was actually witnessed by a decent number of people!

                  Awesome, Dan. That's a great 4. Sounds like you have been playing some great golf lately. Hope to see some from you this weekend!

                  Did you hit the deuce is the question. I have only birdied the short position - never the long, though I have hit basket a few times with a putt.

                  That hole begs for a roller when it isn't windy. It produces hysterical rollers when it IS windy. Well done!

                      A few years ago I had a cut on my throwing hand which turned me left handed for a bit. I was playing the red course at riverside hole 11. I threw a left handed turnover with a 172 CE Spider through a small gap which came out just in time to turn right into the basket for an offhanded ace. This shot more than most made me feel pretty cool.

                        One shot that always sticks out in my mind is hole one in the long at Dexter. It was a busy day at the course and my group was teeing off right after Avery and some other big guns. Avery and his group putted out and were standing 20 feet or so to the left of the basket talking. I drove and worm burned it about 100 feet. The rest of my group had decent drives. I was pretty embarrassed about my drive and wanted to park my upshot. I threw my CE FL on the perfect line but a little harder than I wanted. It crashed the chains for the deuce and Avery gave me a little round of applause.

                          This is easy - and its fairly recent. Drove hole 5 at Trojan about 275 to 300 feet down the fairway. Using an Avenger SS, managed to hit the birdie (blind to the basket) - about a 275 foot fairway ace.

                            It was at the Hyzer Desert Open, at Coates and Lanes old ranch. I forget what hole it was, but it played with a fence along the right side with a small creek too. I threw my first shot god awful bad, ending up inside some trees on the left of the fairway. Still 250 out from the pin, and the only shot out is from my knees through a small window. I grab an eagle and go for broke, and beeline it in. If I had missed the basket, it would have been 100+ feet past it. Wortz and Pinkal both were there to see it, too.
