1. One throw per hole means I could throw his ball out of bounds any time I wanted to. I believe I shot about 68 and he didn’t break 130 as he got very frustrated when I kept throwing his ball into the OB or unplayable areas. I didn’t give away the real secret to the throw, which came up on bet #3.
2. After said long knocker beat one out there about 270, I turned around and drove my ball in the other direction down the previous fairway as the key phrase I used. “You cannot out drive my drive with a driver and an LW.”
3. This one was a slaughter. They heard about the first bet and said I couldn’t throw their ball, only mine. They shot about 7 or 8 under. I had a good ball striking day and an even better throwing day. On the first hole I hit 3W/LW to about 8 feet and threw (rolled) my ball in the hole for an eagle 2. The second hole I hit a 3W and an iron to about 25 feet in two on a par 5 and threw it up there to about a foot and tapped in to go 4-under after two holes.
Theoretically, if you hit it and threw it well enough, you could shoot 32…for 18 holes.
I remember shooting in the high 40′s that day. I don’t remember them even tying a hole. I am sure they tied a few, but I was never in danger of losing a hole. Even on a bad day mid 50′s is a high score.
4. The guy playing left handed hadn’t seen me hit it off my knees and didn’t know I had a SW cut down and bent flat for chipping and shots of about 60-70 yards. I can drive it 300 and hit some beauty knock down 3 woods…and for those skeptics that don’t buy me being able to hit an iron…it won’t cost you much to see me do it.
Putting is easy. You use your regular putter like a long putter.
He was around 150 and I threatened to break 80. A triple derailed me late in the round.
I’d probably have trouble breaking 90 now, but with a little practice, you wouldn’t want to play me. I did put on trick shot shows for a long time.
