My favourite shot is always when I get to hit my driver. I do really enjoy my driver and I often do okay with it, at least good enough to keep me coming back.

My most consistent shot though is full swing with the short irons, especially the 9 and the pitching wedge. They almost never go wrong and I've been getting pretty actuate with them. I would say that is the shot I'm most comfortable with, so that is what I voted for.

Oh yeah, the first tee during competition, I hate those too.

my favorite shots are long iron approaches for sure. There's nothing like piercing a three iron or four iron and sticking it within ten feet. Granted, those great shots are few and far between, but thats why I like them the most.

I'm in the same boat, hate the 1st tee......

I've topped shots off of the first tee.

It's horrible. I'll still shoot mid 70's. Only if I didn't do that, ****ing first tee. Anyway, I also have started to love putting. Last month, I went from 38-40 putts to around 30.

Easily putting. I love the green. I rarely 3 putt (maybe once a round) and a VAST majority of my strokes are from tee to green. I hate my driver and SW. I am seriously thinking of having an exorcism done on both.

I voted pitch shots, many different shots....., High, low, bump and run, hop and stop, etc... I feel I can never practice them enough, plus it's fun practice.

Detest....Long irons, except maybe a 4 iron off the tee.

I voted short irons, but i specifically love those low punch-type chip shots, and then if you do it right they check up. I love pitching the ball nice and low.

I voted Driving. Until lately, I have been extremely consistent with my Driver. I used to average about 280 off the tee, but took a bit of a break from the game for school reasons, now I average about 260, but I still believe I can be as accurate with my driver as anyone's three wood.

I selected "Driving" and "Long irons" because my favorite shot (read: one I screw up the least on) is a 2 iron off the tee, especially on a tight driving hole when a longer club could go God knows where into some serious trouble.

The driver itself, while there's nothing quite like hitting a ball 300+ down the middle with a little draw, there's also nothing quite like ruining your entire day, score-wise, before you even get a ball in play.

And I don't trust the 2 iron off the grass. Just off the tee for me.

I'm with you. In those dreary winters around here, I almost never have the urge to swing a driver. I do get antsy about playing while watching the pros around the green on TV.

Sometimes I finish hitting balls, go to the short game area and stay there for two hours. I just love to put the ball in difficult lies / positions and practice hards shots. I also have a couple "bread and butter" shots I think I need to practice at least once a week. If they outlaw sand wedges, I'm quitting.

    • I tried not to place blame too much on it in my previous posts, but it’s absolutely dogshit. Im embarrassed and pissed at how f***ing bad my putting is.   I’ll give you a rundown today. Started on hole 10, had a 10ft for birdie and missed. Not too upset at that. 11 was tough, just pulled a shot and lost it. Double bogey, wasn’t putting but knew I could easily recover with how many chances I’ve given myself all week. 12, 10ft birdie missed. Starting to get upset. 13, 8ft par putt missed; tee shot was a bit off so I’ll blame that but ultimately it should’ve been an easy make. 14, 30ft for birdie, 3 putt because I missed a 5ft par putt. 15, was upset but somehow made a sliding 12ft birdie. 16, barely short of green, elected to putt and ball took off.  Had 6ft coming back and missed that too. 17, 5ft for birdie missed. 18, par with a good up and down. 1, put my 2nd on a par 5 to 2ft, luckily that’s inside 4ft and I can make those, eagle which should hold up for a skin. 2, 15ft birdie missed. 3, 5ft birdie missed. 4…….. 4 putt from 20ft, the other putts were all around 5ft, I don’t freaking know. 5, made a good up and down (all up and downs were because putts were inside 4ft). No idea why my chipping was reasonable today, but I’ll take it. 6, 12ft birdie missed. 7, 15ft birdie missed. 8, 15ft birdie once again f***ing missed. 9, a good up and down because I chipped to 2ft. Story of all 3 days. Had two 4 putts, too many 3 putts and a huge amount of birdie putts missed inside 15ft. My approaches were on fire. Driver I figured out eventually but too late. Shot 75 today. Won’t finish in money but I won 2 skins to get a little. I’m pissed.  
    • Nothing really surprising with the picks besides Rahm Sergio. Did not see that being a team or 1st out for Euros. I like the Keopka Berger pairing. That is a balls to the wall pairing.  Paul and Hovland was a bit of a surprise. However the Euros have been saying all week everyone wanted to play with him so maybe not. They will be playing 2 of the most relaxed Americans should be good. 
    • I think lot of the unvaccinated have adopted that as an identity or maybe a counter identity (never sheep). A badge of honor. Logic, data, science can't shake them. Ironically some of them are all over Ivermectin. Tragic. @Wanzo, I would venture to guess there very very few who are considering the surge in Vermont or Singapore in spite of the high vaccination rate as a reason to stay unvexed. 
    • Reminds me of what the Euro's did in 2004; signs up all over Oakland Hills - NO AUTOGRAPHS. Team USA took that to heart, they didn't even acknowledge the fans (this was a Tuesday practice round). And most of  the European players would walk along the ropes around the green and up to the next tee, they had sharpies with them, and sign tickets, hats, programs, etc.  I'm not sure it mattered once the event started, because it was a completely different crowd and atmosphere on Friday when they were playing keeps. And there wasn't nearly the social media then, but still they were much more engaging with the fans; and it was appreciated.
