In my opinion, I love hitting flop shots. I only learnt how to do them recently but it has come natural to me and I just enjoy the feel of hitting a high, softly landing shot.

I find that a controlled draw is the hardest shot to play. Although i am a high handicapper, I can hit fades well and every club down till my 5 iron very well...its just the 5 bad shots a round that do me :( lol

So what are your favorite shots and the shots that you find hardest to play?

It will be interesting to read some of the responses.

My favorite is the second shot on a par 5. Notwithstanding a duck-hook into the woods, I'm probably in range to get home in two, usually with the 3 wood. And of course, the thrill of actually pulling it off.

My hardest is a fluffy sand shot. I'll hit one heavy, the next one real thin, there's no consistency. If it's even close to sitting up I've resorted to chipping it out.

Favorite shot: 4i between 150-175 yards. Somehow it just comes easily and the swing is a perfect speed.

Least favorite shot: Any wedge outside 30 yards and inside 70 yards. That distance range just happens to be the bane of my existence.

Favorite Shot (other than a 1-footer for birdie): A lay-up 5-iron from the semi-rough, which usually comes off with perfect draw

Least Favorite Shot: A shot between 95-110 yards (my PW goes ~115 on average, whereas my 54-degree goes about ~90 on average... I have no club to fill the gap)

me too! exact same problem, but im working on picking out a 50 deg wedge for the 100-105 yd shot that i always seem to need. and i always seem to get a little too much out of the pw when im trying to hit it soft.

fav shot: any high approach shot from pw-8i (105-140yds). im always going for the pin. whether i should or shouldnt be doing so, but i love seeing divot marks close to the pin.

Favorite shot: 9 Iron from 130-135 yards. Just love my 9 Iron.

Least favorite: Chipping from the fringe of the green. Just a total lack of discipline and control. Working on it the most and hoping to make improvements in 2008.

When I try to hit my PW soft, I usually overcook it or hook it left. Either way, it sucks.

    • Tiger’s driving could be more erratic than Jack’s.    Driving: Jack (I think they were equal in distance relative to the equipment they were  playing, but Jack stayed out of the shit) Approach (75-250 yards): Wash. Jack takes the longer end (mainly because of some amazing 1 and 2 iron shots). Tiger takes the shorter end. Short Game: Tiger not close. Putting: Wash. Both of them in pressure situations.    Recovery: Tiger Mental: That’s a wash. Performance under pressure: Both How much better than everyone else was Tiger in his prime vs Jack on his prime? Tiger set the bar so high when he was in his prime that most guys behind him weren’t even in the same time zone let alone, the same tour. Jack was pretty damn good but he wasn’t as dominant as Tiger and that’s where Tiger is so much greater than Jack and that’s what makes him the GOAT.  
    • It seems it would be difficult to get the ball to stop on the green. Bump and run can be judged. But let’s say a 150-170yd…it’d be hard to hurl the ball far enough to get there but with a high enough trajectory to stay on the green. Seems like every shot outside 100yds would have to be a bump and run.
    • For those who have tried golf a few times and find it too frustrating(like my wife), I can see where this might be fun for some. Consider me open minded. But that is coming from a snow boarder and someone who also enjoys disc golf as well.  🙂
    • They probably have to pay the same rates so it won’t hurt the course in that aspect.
    • All evidence wold indicate that Tiger has put it in many, many more holes than Jack.   But seriously, Tiger was much better at scrambling and making stunning recovery shots than Jack. But Jack didn't seem to find trouble as often as Tiger.
