Whats the one shot that you hate most when you blow it ...

post #1 of 116
Thread Starter 

... to me, I'd rather top a drive than to shank a greenside chip.      I practice chipping more than any other shot (only because the backyard is available) & am usually pretty solid, but more often than I like to admit, I dead shank a chip & it goes at an exact right angle to the line its supposed to ... NOTHING GRINDS MY GEARS MORE THAN THAT - UGH !!!!

 

You ?

Same, nothin worse than a mishit on a chip unless its a 1 foot putt miss.

Nothing more frustrating to me than screwing up an easy chip.  Wasted opportunities!

To hit a tee shot OB, or somewhere that I can't find it and hit it again. I figure I'm never out of a hole as long as I can hit it again.

Ditto! This is by far the most frustrating thing to me when golfing, followed by missing a short putt.

It has to be a tie between duffing a chip shot and hitting a 20-30 yard pitch shot fat...both eat me up inside!

Yup, this one.  When I chunk a chip it only costs me 1 shot, but when I hit a drive into "bolivian" ;) it costs 2.  (Actually more like 2.5 because I'm usually scared or angry and lacking a little concentration on the provisional and hit it less than stellarly as well.)

I agree on the fat shot. the 20-40 yard pitch shot that ends up 10-5 yards short of the green makes me mad. mostly because i know why i did it and how to not do it, but some how it still happens. leaving a ball in the sand can be really frustrating too.

Roughly 60 yards out.. 52* wedge in my hand..

 

Game plan: 75% swing, pinch the ball tight, land it slightly long with backspin.. (in practice i feel like i can do this 95/100 times)..

 

However, on the course the % is never that high!.. I either:  a) skull it 15 yards long  or   b) hit behind the ball causing a chunk

 

I think it's all in my head at this point!

Today actually 

 

3 times piped a beautiful drive right down the middle, every time made double with no more than a 9 iron in my hand most frustrating thing ever

Being 10' off the green  with 20' left to the pin (thinking make it or having a tap-in left) and end up blading it across the green or peeking & advancing the ball a couple of feet or less.

It's not very often, but once in a blue moon I'll get lazy and lay the hosel into a short iron.   That'll get into your head for the rest of the round too.   Ugh......!

Yup. That does it for me.

Leaving it in a bunker.

Piss Poor chip shot, i hate it, drives me up the wall, my number 1 destroyer of a good round. I can be 10 yards from the green and waste 6 shots, its absurd.

post #16 of 116

The drive smashed down the middle, when its 3 off the tee. Why couldn't you do that first time you effin cee.

post #17 of 116

I'll be the oddball here.  I hate it when I crush a drive right down the middle on a reachable par 5 and it leaves me 3 wood out and I try to crush it so bad I either top it 50 yrds or pull it into crap.

Absolutely! Played last weekend and was 4 over after 7 when the wedge just totally disappeared. Hit 11 fairways, nice fairway woods and irons but fought that damn wedge all day and ended up with a 97. :(
