Re: Golfers of RedsZone (aka War Stories from the Rough)
I shanked a 5-iron today in a tournament. Yep, pros do it to! I'm usually good for a few shanks a year. Most of the times it's with a wedge though. Today, was the ever-so-rare 5-iron hosel rocket. I was cruising around Hamilton Elks, 1 under thru 5. I hit a good drive on 6 and only had 207, 196 front, for my second shot on a Par 5. Then, ol' Shankapotamous came out. Unfortunately, too, my ball ended up in some fescue about 70 right of the green. After slapping it around a few times, I ended up with a 6. Thankfully, that was the only blemish on the scorecard en route to a 68. All in all, a good day and that shank didn't slow me down too much.
