Yep, made this 25' putt today

I know, who cares, it's just a 25' putt. But I backhanded this shot (on Williamsberg hole 8) over the bridge, below the handrail, and nothing but chains, straddling on that frozen log, left foot behind my Northman. No witnesses, so I took a very rare cellphone pic.

Definitely brothers throw.

He putts and it falls off the cliff.... He climbs down (after I told him not to) then he throws it from where it lied... (also told him not to) and he was just trying to throw it to me.... It never made it up the cliff, but he did make it in the smallest deepest hole on the side of the cliff lolol. We had to leave it cause he was getting tired of climbing lol. Went back the next day to grab it because it was in such an obscure location.

OH but I guess this is best throw.... not really for the hilarious.

Threw a sour cream lid into the trash can from about 20ft. Gotta love Iowa winters!

Hit a shot from pretty much exactly where this picture was taken on hole 7 at Kereiakes Park, about 150 ft! buzzz ss s curved and went right by that tree and faded in.

Best throw today was a Zero Pure into the backyard basket from 165 feet out (and uphill - both ways!). The dogs witnessed, I swear.

460ft with a Forehand Roller...it was an 11x Eagle X that is so crazy overstable that I can't break 280 with it.

In a field practicing, by the way.

Hole #14 at Swope yesterday (8:12 in this video). 456 feet, out of some trees, over a valley and back into the trees.

I threw out my *D mostly flat, flipped over nicely on the right side of the fairway, faded back nicely towards the pin. Put in the 20 foot putt for a sweet birdie.

Looked exactly like Steve Brinster's shot at 8:40 in that same video.

Nice on the hole 8. Flat Rocks is home to some of my most memorable shots. Made a huge putt on 9 once after throwing a Wasp too high and it hyzered out hard. I was pin high but about 2 feet from the parking lot haha. Later that day on a second time through I used an Axis and threw it hard and low as possible. Rode the hill down no more than a foot or two off the ground. No idea where it went off the tee. So my buddy Joey and I start walking down the hill. It's sitting under the basket.

Next hole he parks it on a blind uphill shot after I fall on my drive (the pads there can be slick). It's a 250'ish hole and I was around halfway there. No wind and I just throw a hit and stick hyzer with a Magic. Hit and stick... into the chains that is! I was cheesin' the rest of the round.

Nice shot. Was it like in the video where everyone else approaches and a putt or two then you finally get your turn?
