My brother and I used to try this but standing close to the house (rancher) and trying to put the ball on the roof. Luckily for the siding, we used wiffle balls.

To use a variation of an old adage.

Two stupids don't make a smart.

I'm not a Phil fan, but that's pretty damn impressive.

I'm at a point right now (and for the last two seasons) where I can no longer chip with wedges or, for that matter, comfortably play a shot from inside 90 yards. So, I'm just in awe thinking of how incredible it must be for Phil to have that much confidence in his ability.

Wow. Here I am dreaming about getting down in less than four from inside 100, and Phil's out there doing that. Just amazing.

Stanley - funny how you always fuss when people take shots at Eldrick, but you can't wait to do the same with Phil. I guess it all depends on whose ox is being gored.

OK, so I laid a wedge down like Phil did and set a ball down to visualize what what Roger was looking at.......wow.

Kinda reminds me of the time I ran down the court and took off from the free throw line to get Dr. J's perspective on his dunk in the ABA dunk contest in Denver. ( did make sure no one was looking ). Makes you feel really inferior.
Tighthead +1

I'm not the biggest fan of Callaway products but I will say they do make a fine wedge.

The number would have to be real real big in order for me to stand there like that!

what would happen if he tried that shot with say a 5 iron?

Mickelson did the same thing in a video with Dave Pelz some time back. Cool shot regardless.

@OWGR fan: yeah, and I remember Pelz juggled the last one. Top that, Cleveland!

Stanley...gotta give tighthead another

+1

The Pelz shot is mentioned in this video.

This was insane, no other ay to describe it, and Del, so the number would have to be more than 64?

off a tight lie, no less!

Tighthead and digsouth

Would you stand there for that shot? QED

Stanley, I already called it insane. But I don't think that was the point of the +1. Stan- I like your posts, and I usually agree with you.

I am not a hater- I just call 'em as I see 'em. And full disclosure- I am PM fan- not a PM vs TW, just a PM fan- and I am glad to see TW get his putting mojo back- will make for a hell of a year.
