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

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


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.
