I look at it this way, If I hit a GIR 420 yard par 4, it is greatly satisfying and joyful but a 2 putt doesn't ever churn up that kind of emotion. You have to 1-putt to feel that good.
So fun, like awesome soul lifting fun? Yupp, ball striking.. All good golfers are at least decent strikers but many of them are yippy putters.
'Oh man I got away with a dumb screw up' type relief? Two putt par from 65 feet.
Winning the pot with a straight flush type joy? A birdie putt from within 15 feet. You drew a good hand (luck) and you conquered (executed without screwing it up).
Winning with a shitty hand type joy? A birdie putt from 20 plus feet. Mostly luck.
I like @nevets88, for one because it took me way too long to realize that the letters were Steven spelled backwards.
And @newtogolf makes me chuckle sometimes because he's been playing golf and a member here long enough that he is now a big fat liar.
