Dude Perfect: Long Drive Trick Shots

I’m a huge fan of the Long Drive Championship that takes place every year and one of my favorite competitors is Jamie Sadlowski. This average looking player can crush a golf ball 445 yards! Yes, you heard me right. I found this video that also shows us that Jamie has some skill when it comes to accuracy too. Check out this video with some amazing trick shots and boys being boys.

I had the chance to play at Willow Springs yesterday, June 9th with my buddy Coy. Although it’s starting to get hot outside we still had a blast like always. Any day you can hit the golf course and enjoy a good cigar is a great day! As far as the course is concerned, it was in pretty good shape, but it wasn’t as green as Olmos Basin was the last time I played there. I thought Willow Springs would have been a little more plush, but they must have a good drainage system or something because it didn’t look like the course soaked up all that rain we’ve been having. Speaking of rain, it’s supposed to rain later on this week, so maybe the course will look better next week. The greens played nice, and I didn’t really have any complaints. Check out the video below of me getting ready to tee off on hole #1. Fore!

I got to play at Olmos Basin on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 and boy was it in great shape. Olmos Basin is one of the golf courses on the Alamo City Golf Trail here in San Antonio, TX. With my Level 2 membership I was able to play for around $25! Olmos Basin golf course usually isn’t this green year-round, but due to all of the rain we’ve been having here in Texas recently, now is the time to get out and play. The greens were in great shape, and they looked beautiful. Unfortunately, I don’t always hit the fairway on my drives and there were times where it was a little difficult to find my ball (even if it was just a couple feet in the rough). If you can get a chance to make it out there pretty soon while it’s all green I would recommend you do. A lot of people asked me if the course was flooded when I played, and luckily for me it wasn’t. I played Canyon Springs golf course a few days before and it ate my lunch, so it was nice to play a wide open course like Olmos. Check out this tee shot on hole 6, where I landed on the green!

I got a chance to play at Canyon Springs Golf Course on Sunday with some of my good golf buddies. Although we’ve been having some crazy, rainy, stormy weather in San Antonio recently, the golf course was in great shape. This is one of the few courses that I know of that has a beautiful waterfall and real LONGHORNS on the course. Canyon Springs is one of the more expensive courses in San Antonio, but I like to use a little app called GolfNow to find some good deals.
