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!

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.

    • Day 584 - August 3, 2021 Hit fifteen or twenty balls at Chautauqua between lessons. Wrists while I turn, 1/2 swing (or 3/4). Whatever it is, it's "less." Hit some good ones.
