If you did an honest assessment of your game, what would you pinpoint as the strongest and weakest aspects?
Sand play is definitely my greatest strength. I have no fear of bunkers and prefer being in them as opposed to some other places around greens (such as facing even a slight downhill chipping lie). I'm better out of the sand than anybody I regularly play with, including guys with handicaps considerably lower than mine. I'm at 45 percent on sand saves since I started keeping track last summer, which I'd imagine is pretty high for someone of my index level. The vast majority of the saves have been on putts of 4 feet or less.
My biggest bugaboo is mid-range putting. I don't three-putt a lot and I'm okay on short ones, but I rarely hole anything in the 8- to 15-foot range and that's getting frustrating as hell. I average about 33 putts per round and had 35 en route to an 81 recently. I'm finishing too many holes with tap-ins of less than 1 foot, whether they're for par or bogey.
How about you?
