Whats the one shot that you hate most when you blow it ... - Page 6

post #91 of 116
Topping a god damn, no good, piece of crap hybrid.

I hate the sound it makes, kind of a "doink" sound. LOL.

Yeah, but you get more out of a topped hybrid than a topped long iron.

holycrap I thought I was the only one who consistently topped hybrids - WTF is the deal with that ?!?!?      I've owned probalby a half dozen hybrids & just can NOT get confidence with them.    Much prefer long irons - I have swarn hybrids off for good mostly due to topping them (don't have that problem as consistently with other clubs) !!

I don't do it anymore but for the longest time it was almost a given. I think it's because my brain could not commit, am I sweeping or am I striking down, so I'd kinda try to do both at the same time as I looked up to admire my soaring ball flight. DOINK. Now I hit down on those ******* like they're wedges and it's all good.

gotta say it's a toss-up between decelerating through a pitch shot that shanks off the toe of the club, or blading my bread-and-butter 100yd shot (perfect distance with my GW).

The 18th at my home course is a par-4 with a slight curve to the left and an approach shot over water.  Too many times I've bombed a drive leaving me less than 100 in and caught that shot thin or fat because the water was in my head.  It can be a real card killer.

Screwing up a lag putt. I expect my second putt to be close enough to take the pressure off, when its not I'm pissed at myself. Shouldn't have to be superman to get it with 2-3 feet from a distance.

2perfect practice putts, step to the ball, stroke, catch the ground balls rolls 4ft foward. Putters ends up in the bushes followed by many profanities.

Not hitting my chip shot to 2-3 feet of hole. Anything less is a bad shot. To me that's worse than 3 putting
post #102 of 116

The 60-90 yard approach after completely over-clubbing on the previous shot.  There's nothing more frustrating than hitting a perfect drive on a short par 4 and having to take a 75% swing, knowing full well that I should have hit a hybrid and left an solid 105-115 which is a much easier shot for me. I'm not a super long hitter either, so I'm never going for par 5s in two, but I'm always going Driver/5I to about 60-70 yards, when I should be going Hybrid/6I then PW or 9I from 115-140.

The worst has to be what happened to me yesterday...

 

Par 5, crush my tee shot around 290, which left me about 215 out... Know that I have a chance to be on the green in two with my hybrid, and then yank it straight left!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

DAMMMMNNNNN IT!!!!!!

post #104 of 116

But also, any chip shot that I leave short (which is almost all of them) or the 25 foot shot that I hit fat!!!

I had several rounds in a row last season where I would have between 175-215 into par 5s and duff a long iron.  Incredibly frustrating.  At one point I counted 5-6 par 5s in a row where this happened (only counting par 5s where I had an iron in my hand with a chance to reach in two).

dubbing the short pitch/chip shot - doesn't have to be close, but I want a clean hit - straight reference to the "what's your most inconsistent shot" thread

  • decelerating and just mishit
  • or the blade/skull

 

both stink equally

Not sure If this counts as a "blow it" shot but the result is less than pleasing.  I hate driving into a water hazard that splits the fairway.  I can stand bad drives that end up in the water, but when I knock one right down the pipe only to have it roll into a water hazard I get very frustrated.

Yeah, that's like fall golf or night golf with lights. Smack a beauty dead center and never find it.c4_mad.gif
