Whats the one shot that you hate most when you blow it ...

116 posts in this topic

... to me, I'd rather top a drive than to shank a greenside chip.      I practice chipping more than any other shot (only because the backyard is available) & am usually pretty solid, but more often than I like to admit, I dead shank a chip & it goes at an exact right angle to the line its supposed to ... NOTHING GRINDS MY GEARS MORE THAN THAT - UGH !!!!

You ?

Nothing more frustrating to me than screwing up an easy chip.  Wasted opportunities!

To hit a tee shot OB, or somewhere that I can't find it and hit it again. I figure I'm never out of a hole as long as I can hit it again.

Ditto! This is by far the most frustrating thing to me when golfing, followed by missing a short putt.

It has to be a tie between duffing a chip shot and hitting a 20-30 yard pitch shot fat...both eat me up inside!

Yup, this one.  When I chunk a chip it only costs me 1 shot, but when I hit a drive into "bolivian" ;) it costs 2.  (Actually more like 2.5 because I'm usually scared or angry and lacking a little concentration on the provisional and hit it less than stellarly as well.)

I agree on the fat shot. the 20-40 yard pitch shot that ends up 10-5 yards short of the green makes me mad. mostly because i know why i did it and how to not do it, but some how it still happens. leaving a ball in the sand can be really frustrating too.

Roughly 60 yards out.. 52* wedge in my hand..

Game plan: 75% swing, pinch the ball tight, land it slightly long with backspin.. (in practice i feel like i can do this 95/100 times)..

However, on the course the % is never that high!.. I either:  a) skull it 15 yards long  or   b) hit behind the ball causing a chunk

I think it's all in my head at this point!

Being 10' off the green  with 20' left to the pin (thinking make it or having a tap-in left) and end up blading it across the green or peeking & advancing the ball a couple of feet or less.

It's not very often, but once in a blue moon I'll get lazy and lay the hosel into a short iron.   That'll get into your head for the rest of the round too.   Ugh......!

Piss Poor chip shot, i hate it, drives me up the wall, my number 1 destroyer of a good round. I can be 10 yards from the green and waste 6 shots, its absurd.

I'll be the oddball here.  I hate it when I crush a drive right down the middle on a reachable par 5 and it leaves me 3 wood out and I try to crush it so bad I either top it 50 yrds or pull it into crap.

Absolutely! Played last weekend and was 4 over after 7 when the wedge just totally disappeared. Hit 11 fairways, nice fairway woods and irons but fought that damn wedge all day and ended up with a 97. :(

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
