What Is The One Shot You Wish You Could Copy From A PGA Player

For me it's gotta be the full sand wedge shot because I simply can't pull it off.

chipping and pitching around the greens without a doubt.  I'm happy with the way I hit it for the most part but those guys get up and down from everywhere.

Steve Stricker's drive. Driver is neck & neck with my SW as the most frequently used club in my bag, and it's by far the least consisent. Put me 275 in the middle of the fairway and I'll drop 6 strokes off my index (yeah, I know, who wouldn't?)

Same for me, when I drive the ball well, I score well.  I can pretty much get up and down from anywhere, I've had years of that and have gotten pretty good, but I can not tame the driver.

Are you kidding me? 330 yard drive straight down the middle. No contest.

I would take any pro's ability to knock down basically every putt inside 12 feet... Yesterday I had 6 birdie putts in the 10-12 foot range and made 2, lipped out 3, and completely missed 1.

I think I remember seeing a stat that the pros make 50% of puts at 7 feet X inches.  Given, they play on extremely difficult greens, but their stats won't be as far from what you did yesterday as you think.  It sounds like you came really close to making 5 of 6 12 footers yesterday.  Even though those lipped out, that is some good putting!

Back on topic - I'd take that stinger.  What a show off shot.  And I stink from the tee, so it would improve my game a lot.  I'd also like that spinning chip like in the video (even though he was 70 out). My chips get very little check up.  I think the more expensive balls might play a part in that as well.

Yea, my putting really wasn't bad but I expect to make them all. I know that's unreasonable, but they were all pretty easy putts. It's especially frustrating to lip out 3 putts, considering that's harder to do than actually make the putt... The pros would make well over 50% of the putts I'm speaking of I believe. I'm talking like left edge of the cup, or maybe a ball or two outside of the hole. Simple break putts that just need to start on a good line. I have read that stat that you speak of though. It sure seems like when watching on tv that they make more than 50%, but I guess that's because the cameras are always on the top of the leaderboard guys.

Low pitch high spin stoppers:

That was my first thought . .. but I'd also take 300+ yard drives, super-human putting, full-swing sand shots . .and any of the rest of it, too.

But if I could only pick one .. it would definitely be the short chips and pitches that land close and stop.

Approach shots: Spinning irons backwards combined with lasering the green.  I'd love to be able to pull 10yds more club than I need knowing the ball will pull backwards into the pin area (and hit the green).

Also Rick'y high spin pitch was pretty sick up there.

Is this just a post to let us know you hit it inside 12 ft six times yesterday? ;-)

    • Didn't know if I could mention it by name, but we know who. Many people share this experience.They promise a check instead of credit to use. Send in my clubs 2 months ago. They were accepted and approved 6 weeks ago. I emailed about the check 2 weeks ago. "Oh, it's on the way tomorrow".  I will call tomorrow.  However, they either have a cash flow problem, or they wait to sell your clubs before paying you out.  Said to see because the umbrella companies are awesome. Just be honest and tell me it may take two months
    • Here in USA, the KBS Tour S-flex shafts go for about $27 each new. If you get AP2 714 model, a 4-PW (?) reshaft would require $189 + tax to get shafts. Add $15 per club for shaft swap, and $10 per for new grips, and it's about $365 + tax. The KBS Tour stiff would be a few grams lighter and slightly stiffer than the S300 which often come as stock for the AP2. OTH is on target, consider this too.
    • I had a big long post going and lost it. The game of golf has only one set of rules per continent. The equipment used is well defined as far as legal, or illegal. The other sports you mentioned are dealing more with different age groups, physical sizes, and skill levels. Sure, golf has players of all ages, sizes, and skill levels too. Golf also has one set of rules, and one playing field with differences in length. Difference is baseball has tee ball. Football has different leagues based on age groups, and it's the same  for basketball. These sports cater to the needs of their players based on their age groups, and skill levels. This also includes the playing fields, and equipment they use. So in that respect I have no problem with what other sports are doing. 
    • 2/23: Feeling encouraged. I think I've got the (worse than usual) weight-shift/head movement mystery solved, or at least "identified" with a much better understanding of it (and a confirmation that it's always been there ). Getting better at the process I think...(1) noticing a problem but not knowing the why, (2) Slowing down and checking keys 1-3, and (3) "going back to my first lesson" so to speak by reviewing old video and my swing posts, and slowly "backing up" from the problem to try and identify the (chain of) cause(s). Today's practice: 10 minutes of good ol' wall drill, with original focus of getting my right hip away from the wall but with added attention paid to my upper body and (actually getting some) secondary axis tilt. Several slow and medium-speed reps of this pausing for feel and thinking about and practicing how I'd transition into the downswing. Then 6-8 minutes outside... Just two "reps" of 3-4 minutes slow-motion back- and downswings (hip, axis tilt, weight shift (and resulting proper better club path ) and then an easy-swing full shot with my 56o. So I only hit two shots and both were perfect, high draws.
    • Cobra Bio Cell + set at 15 degrees I am very confident with this club.  My 4 iron goes about 190 and my 3h goes 200-210.  Anything more than that (in the 220-230 range) is this club.  I have hit some very accurate shots with it and feel very comfortable with it.  In the first round this season, I have plopped one from 225 out within 15 feet from the pin.  I may change my driver this year but I get the feeling this club along with my hybrid (also a Bio Cell +) will be around for a long time
