So I was playing in a tournament when I witnessed a good Pro player, facing a critical putt down the stretch. The putt somehow caught on his finger as he released and rather than sailing 30 feet forward went about 15 backwards. Backwards! Straight over his head, backwards. It was a good-natured group (as most old guy groups are) so we almost fell down laughing. The Pro then stepped up and slammed the 45 footer, not even waiting for us to quiet down.
The first putt was odd and one of those one-in-a-million things which could happen to anyone (I guess). The second putt though, that was special.
I went and played Maximo in St. Pete Fl. for the first time about a month ago. I had a really crazy putt on hole 7 from about 15' out that I some-how got my Banger-GT to hang from the outside of the basket... Went to the rulebook and found out that is was good. Right after I picked it up, I tried to put it back in the same spot and could barely get it to stay.
Threw in a 120 foot plus shot at Blackhawk #12 (570', par 4) to win $40 in skins this past New Years Day...not really a putt for me, but I did call it...said something like, "Gotta throw this in to get the cash." It was for a 3 and there were 4 others closer to the pin than I (all missed their third shots). The closest guy (and one of the persons who heard me call my shot) was only about 30 feet out, but was in jail behind a tree, he threw it over the tree and the disc filtered to the basket hitting the top chain hanger. I have never been so stoked to see someone miss before... ;)
I had a round where I hit 2 60 footers and a 90 footer during doubles with my friends. It was actually pretty breezy as well, but I had a tailwind on all 3 putts. I kept lobbing them way up in the air (about 15 feet up) and they all just burried deep in the chains. I had a smile on my face nearly all that round. It feels wonderful to putt well...especially when you get the bonus putts like those.
Also, it's always very satisfying to hit a [legal] falling putt out of the brush. It feels like you earned it after diving to the ground. Maybe it's the thrill of Ultimate that I recall when I pull it off. :-)
I don't know if you could call this a putt or not, but for me the shot is anywhere from 30 to 50 feet from the basket or longer. I make this shot a lot. Throw a forehand shot with a Banshee with some speed. I usually hit it dead center. One of the best ones I hit was last year at the bottom of a hill to a basket at the top of the hill. I had to go around some branches, but the Banshee tracked perfectly into the center of the chains. When it goes in I just know that it's going in. There is no room for any doubt on this shot.
Playing a weekly bag tag round at Oroville CA a few weeks ago, my drive was 100' short of the basket on hole 4. The line had several trees along the left edge and a forked tree right in front of the basket. Not an easy shot, so I'm thiinking par is good. All I could see was the top 3-4" of the basket. So I figure I'll Putt right for the fork, It veered missing the fork right and slammed the chains for a birdie. The guys in my group are all saying, What was that? You gotta be kiddin me. The route was really protected. I couldn't believe it myself so had to run up....
I had a strong headwind putt on #14 Turkey Lake. Just missed the 35' shot, and skipped off the top of the basket. My Omega passed the basket, floated up about 15 feet, and the headwind pushed it backwards, into the basket for a birdie in front of four other players!
We were playing random draw doubles at Deming in Terre Haute, IN a couple of years ago and my partner was Lee Hartwell. On hole 12 - a 435' hole - both of our drives hit the same tree so we were approx. 130' from the hole which has a tree 15' to the left and another tree about 5' to the right and behind the hole. We took Lee's drive so I threw first and put my putter about 10' from the hole and told Lee "you have to go for it". He threw a driver that anhyzered right into the tree behind the hole and bounced off of it right into the hole. Not really a putt but it was an awesome shot for a two.
