For me it would have to be a cut. Whenever I try to hit one it either: a) goes straight or b) slices.
Are there any shots that you have trouble hitting?
A draw when the wind is at my back, basically straight left to right. Most of the time it tends to come off as a slight pull lol
Obviously straight shots are tough to hit because you almost have to get lucky to hit a ball with zero spin axis and a face aimed at the target. Not even the pros can do that
A stinger, I just don't bother trying this shot on the course because I have little success at the range with it, I used to pick the ball really bad and still do from time to time so the whole motion of that shot is a real challenge at this time, I hope in the future to be able to do it but I'm not going to get all obsessed with pulling this shot off while there are so many more important shots in the game of golf that I need to devote my attention to.
I voted stinger as well. I can hit a low stinger pretty well as long as it's a 3/4 swing or less, e.g. keeping the ball low under overhanging limbs or something. More of a punch shot, I suppose. I can even shape that shot pretty easily and draw/cut it around a corner. However, if it's a full swing shot off of a tee box where I have a 20 mph headwind and am trying to keep the ball low, I really struggle with that shot. It always goes too high.
I voted ''one not mentioned here''. I do however have trouble hitting a cut iron shot when I need to. Can cut my driver, but have learned if I don't totally commit and focus on the shot, a lil cut shot can turn out to be a huge slice. The only shot that scares me to death is a flop. Im scared of it on the range, never even attempted during a round.
I rarely get the trajectory I plan from ball-below-the-feet shots off a hillside. Golf physics says a right-hander will get a left to right ball flight (fade).
If I play for a fade, I hit the ball straight and miss left. If I play it straight, the fade shows up and I miss right.
For some reason, I do much better with ball above.
My dad (a terrible cook) used to always say "I can cook anything. You might not be able to eat it but I can cook it."
This thread reminded me of that. I can't think of any shot I can't (and don't) hit but I also can't think of any shot that I'm as good at as I would like to be, and don't have anything that even comes close to a "go to shot".
Pretty much all of them. For years I played a dependable fade. Then I had a couple of injuries, lost the fade, and now I never know where the ball is going. I aim down the middle and hope. The funny thing is, when I try to play a fade or slice in a case of need, the ball usually goes straight. That or I do a complete double-cross and hook it out of sight left.
When I was playing a lot of golf, I could still get around the course fairly well in spite of my shortcomings, but now I just can't get out enough to really have a clue what I'm doing.
