Well If i was do rate my game on a scale of 1 to 10 , with 10 being most important  it would go something like this....

Drive - 10  because if i am on the fairway and not off in the trees, i am saving myself strokes

200+ yards to green -  6   only because unless I hit my 3 wood really good, 200-225 yards is about my limit with a 3 wood...

199-150 yards -  9 ,  I say this is almost as important as my drive because if I can get it on the green from here I am  saving strokes....

150-100 yards -  8 ,  Same as the 199-150 yard shot..

100 - chip shots - 6 , usually i only encounter this shot when one of the longer shots ends up going left or right of the green, or if i am on a 550+ yard hole..

Putting -  lol I suck at putting, i know its a important part of the game, but ehhhh one of these days i will practice at it...

i'd usually say my longer shots are what trouble me the most...  so they are more important, where as 150 yards and closer i am pretty good with my shots.....

Op, did you mean rate yourself in each category like David did, or were you asking us to just arrange the categories in order of importance? Please clarify. ;)

Driving is most important to me. Most of the others are pretty consistent but when the drivers good I'm good. When the driver is being mean I'm not so good

I think an interesting way to look at this would be to rank the classifications that the OP posted, based on how important we feel they are to our game.

From most important to least:

  1. Putting
  2. Short pitches and chips
  3. Driving
  4. 150 - 100
  5. 100 and in
  6. 175 - 200
  7. 200 - 240

I pretty much have expectations for ever aspect of my game.

If i had to rank most important to my game

1) 125 yards an in (including short game)

2) putting

3) driving

4) 125-150 approach

5) 150-175

6) 175-200

7) 200+

I put 125 and in first because proximity will dictate a higher chance of making putts. So its slightly ahead of putting, but putting is up there because its by far the most used club in the bag, only club you use 18 times, unless a chip in.

1. Putting - you can hit it as close as you want but if you can't make the putt you'll never shave any strokes

2. Pitches & chips - short game is where I (and most people) have seen strokes shaved off their game the fastest.

3. Driving - rarely can a drive make a hole but often it can break one, gotta put it in play to give yourself a chance

4. 100 in - scoring shots, with a wedge in your hand is when you have the best chance to make birdie

5. 150 in - short irons, also scoring clubs to a point

6 & 7. 175+ These are shots where you're not necessarily trying to stick it close, rather just putting yourself on the green or in the right position, important, but not as much as the others.

1. Chips and pitches. This can make up for a lot of other sins. Putting is almost equal, but even the best of us "regualr" golfers need to be inside 10-15 feet and the closer the better. 2. Putting. At my level I miss a lot of greens, but if you can get on and in, it is still par. 3. Driving. Reasonable length in reasonable position eliminates a lot of the 175-240 yard shots, excepting par 5's of course. 4. 150 in. I am combining 2 categories here for me, because from 150 in it is a 7 iron or less, and I am as likely to hit the green with a 7 as with a 9, and this is also saying that I am as likely to miss with a 9 as with a 7, LOL! But if I have a decent playable drive, this is the next important distance. 5. 175-240+ This is what I have if I miss a drive or usually what I have on a par 5 with a decent drive. Most par 5's are 3 shot holes for me and on those that aren't I am usually happy to be on in reg. I am not usually looking for pin point accuracy and distance here(unless it is a long par 3), but reasonable distance and being in the fairway to position for the next shot.

Just curious some times I think I worry too much a out that 200-230 shot and what to bag what to hit

Has anyone ever broke down there rounds to see exactly where they are strongest and weakest

What methods have you used

Love to hear any and all responses

1. Driving

2. 150 and in

3. 100 and in

4. Short pitches and chips

5. Putting

6. 175-200

7. 200-240

If I am going to have a good day, I have to keep it in play off the tee, and then I have to put it on the green.  Pretty much as simple as that.  (If I'm driving it good, I, frankly, don't have that many shots between 175-240 because I don't play 7200 yard courses. :)

EDIT:  The above is how important I think the categories are.  If I was to also rate those same categories in order of current proficiency, I think they'd go something like this:

1. 150 and in

2. 100 and in

3. putting

4. pitching/chipping

5. 175-200

6. 200-240

7. driving

Here's mine.  I'm sure this is largely a function of how and where I play.

1 - Putting

2 - Driving

3 - Short pitches and chips

4 - 150 and in

5 - 175-200 shots

6 - 200-240 shots

    • Go to ebay and look up the Taylormade Burner Bubble. Not much money, but seems to fit your parameters.
    • I'm a bit biased because I'm working with the folks at GAME GOLF, but I've never really had a problem with any of the tags or GG hardware once I silicone glued them in (and some grips don't need that - my PURE grips are softer than many as they're pure rubber, so they can use the help). GG tags don't affect the swingweight like the Arccos tags. That's a big one IMO. There are other reasons but you listed a lot of them. The stats and whatnot in GG will be getting better, too. They HAVE the data, after all.
    • Not how you finish a club spin, need to work on that, yo  
    • I agree with all of the others. Get a proper fitting. For me? I was using the SLDR driver 12* with a Sr Shaft. I was hitting it a good 160 to 175 yards.  I went to the Titleist Thursday event here in Sacramento. It is where Titleist gives you a free fitting session for what ever you are thinking of replacing. I wasn't thinking of replacing, but was curious. I went in, he watched me swing the club, said try this "catch the rain" (turning my hands over at the bottom of my swing). Ball went a little farther. 
      He said - here try this. Then try this. Shafts, head, more shaft information. (he brought, all, ALL, of the shafts that are being offered for the clubs) I was fitted for the 917D2 with the Blueboard S+ 70 in Regular. I regularly carry 230 yards with roll out (some days more than others.) coming in between 20 and 30 yards more. I hit the M2, Ping G, M1, King Cobra F7 (can't remember which one), ... I hit everything that Haggin Oaks had in their super shop (we call it the library - you check em out and return em). 6 months later I am still hitting it straight (no on purpose shot shaping for me) and long...long for me. (I am 55 yrs young). I hit my 3wood roughly 235, my 7wood about 220ish. Go get fit at a reputable fitting place. You will not regret it.
