Pitching and Chipping... give me a 40-50 yard half wedge into a slightly uphill green any day. I love the low hard spinner... go dead red at the flag, hit the green right there bounce a foot or so and let er reel back to the hole.

I also love chipping from the fringe. I can do better with a sandwedge from there at any distance than I can a putter from anywhere outside 20 feet.

My favorite type of shot right now is the knock down wedge from about 120 yards. I really like this because it takes all of the spin off and I have been having lots of good luck with it lately.

After that, I love the 6 feet and in putts. Those are my favorite type of putts.

I like short iron shots, probably because i'm most confortable with them, I can always rely on my 7 iron.

On everything but the first hole of a tournament, I love hitting driver.

I absolutely despise the first shots. i always shank the life out of the ball on the first shot, but then every shot after is great.

Putting. I love reading and sending the ball on its path to the hole. The more breaks, the better the challenge. Any distance, no matter. That doesn't mean I make them, but 3 putts are rare.

I like hitting my long irons. I have recently started hitting them consistently so I layup with them more then I used to and I'm hitting more fairways. I also have a few long par threes at my course that just make me feel good when I stick one close with a 2/3 iron.

I don't have a particular favorite shot. There is one shot, however, that I have perfected, only because I hit it several times a round. It's the low 3 iron hook around trees and back into the fairway, probably about 150-175 yds. The way I hit my driver @ times I should start hittin' the low 3 iron hook on the tee........

favorite shot to hit is the punch cut or draw 3iron. watched anthony kim hit it on 3 and 5 of the horrible horshoe down at colonoial country club this year (he used a 2iron). decided to try to practice it and it is a pretty easy shot, if you want control just hit controlled finish low iron down the fairway. My other favorites are instead of hitting a 9 taking 8 and using a 3/4 swing. just making sure i hit the green having the confidence that i can two putt from 20 feet.

We all know that there is nothing better than puring a driver, 275-300 yards down the center stripe! Then again, nothing like hitting that high soft cut into a back right pin from 185 with a 6 iron! Then again, putting a little stoppage on a wedge to inside 3 feet, it don't get any better than that! However, sinking that 35 foot, double-breaking bomb that wins the back nine, 18 and birdie pool for the day! Oh hell, I like them all! Don't make me choose!

    • A poll would be nice for this topic. Mine is standard 45.5”.
    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.
