On Tuesday 18th May 2021, Michael Sember a resident at The Villages, Florida, set out to play his usual round of golf at Bonifay Country Club and little did he know that Shot Scope’s 100 millionth shot was close to being hit.
Michael Sember, is a US Air Force Veteran who only took up golf 5 years ago at the age of 72.
Michael was playing the Par 5 18th hole at Bonifay Golf and Country Club, The Villages when he recorded the 100 Millionth shot. The shot itself was Michael’s 24-degree hybrid from the fairway bunker. The shot travelled 135 yards onto the green and Michael 2 putted for a Par 5.
When we asked Michael about the shot he told us: “That happened to be one of my better shots of the day. I only started playing golf 5 years ago and I continually strive to get better and using Shot Scope gives me excellent feedback on my shortcomings.”
To mark such an occasion Shot Scope were delighted to offer $1000 to spend at Ben Hogan Golf, to the lucky Shot Scope user who hit that landmark shot. The $1000 could be spent on a variety of products from Ben Hogan, whether that be a new set of irons and a putter, or some new wedges and fairway woods – it was the winners choice. Thank you to Ben Hogan for supporting our 100 Millionth shot.
