Whats the one shot that you hate most when you blow it ... - Page 2

post #19 of 116

Most frustrating to me is when I blade like a 40 yard approach shot and it flies 40 yards past the green.  Especially if there happens to be OB or woods behind said green.  c1_cursing.gif

leaving a long putt significantly short

Great drive sets up a wedge in... theoretically an easy shot.  Blade and goes over.  Makes my blood boil...

this one - on short to medium distance par 4's when I have a nice drive, and I am holding a club I have a high degree of confidence to put it on the green and have a birdie put and I generally top it because my tempo gets to fast from being excited. 

 

A few days ago, I was playing a GREAT back 9, was 5 over going into the 18th hole a 500 yard par 5.  I STRIPE the drive leaving me around 225 out to the green, a 4w should put me close, I get excited top it 15'.  Out of frustration, now at 210, i hit the same club with no practice swing and leave it inches off the green. 

 

Two holes earlier on a short par 4, I hit a nice hybrid off the tee, and at 125 in take a 3/4 PW and shank it into the water, drop another ball, no practice swing, and drop it 5' from the cup, drop the putt for bogey.

It's the blown chip shot for me. Usually it's leaving it short because I haven't taken enough of a swing. Get's all handsy and weak. I have no doubt I do it 2-3 times per 18. My #1 cause of double bogey. That and bad lag putts are killing me ATM. I'm to the point that if I miss a green I hope it lands in a bunker. I know I'll make a better swing from there.

For me the most frustrating shot it missing a short putt, esp. for a birdie opportunity or to save par.  Over the weekend I had two birdie opportunities where my approach shot came to rest within less than 4' of the pin, missed both of them.  The first one was just a bad read, underestimated the break.  The second one looked great, was tracking right to the hole, but hit the right side of the cup and rimmed out.  Then I converted a 20' putt for birdie late in the round, go figure.  I also missed a couple short putts to save par where the ball looked great heading toward the hole only to hit something on the green close to the cup and bounce off line.  Damn those muni greens!

I'm an oddall 2. THIS.  What makes it doubly frustrating is it can be a turning point moment in the round. You could be on the green putting for eagle or just off the green with a 15-20 yd up and down for bird. Miss it and you're looking at best at a 5 at worst 7 or 8. Still my weakest part of my game.

This all day long for me

When im 140 from the green and I think 'either a seven and risk rolling of the back (always dangerous on ky home course) or crush an 8 and get a bit of extra spin to make it hold. Go for the 8i and everything goea wrong. Huge bladed slice into what might aswell be oblivion. Drop a provisional from where the 8i was taken. Change back to the seven and drop it 3ft from the pin. Kill me now!

Mine is fatting (or skulling or hosselling) an 8 iron into the green after a perfect tee shot.  From 8 through wedges is supposed to be my bread and butter.  It's the only clubs I'm good at.  I'm terrible off the tee.  I don't even carry a driver.  About 140 and in is my domain.

 

So when I crush a 3-wood or Hybrid right down the middle - and I actually have a relatively short shot left - it is a fairly rare opportunity for me. This shot is what I've been hoping for all day!  This is my chance to shine.  Par is a given.  Then I throw up all over myself. 

 

It is hard not to throw the clubs in the pond and walk straight to the car after this.

For me, it's the 80-120 yard wedge from a perfect like that results in a hosel rocket.  Sometimes it derails my entire round.  It's not just the taking double-bogey after a perfect drive on the hole that does it, it's the thought/fear of the shanking the next one that stays with me.

Yep. Great drive leading to a perfect second shot only to flub it. As far as the type of flub goes, I hate the shanked short iron most of all.

After ripping a big drive on a short hole then blading it long I did this twice on the same hole 2 separate rounds same hole. Then listening to my playing partner tell me I am playing it to far back...wrong I came up out of the shot
