i love almost any approach shot 140-160 out. if i could some how master this,i'll be constantly in a two putt situation for par,and possibly in for one(bird!).

least favourite, coming out of hard, recently soaked wet but now sunbaked sand. not a fairway bunker,but greenside. impossible to control.

FAVORITE - Flop shot - nothing better than to hit a high flop that stops like a rock once it lands

MOST DIFFICULT - 6OYARDS to the green in a bunker - seems very difficult to get it close to the pin

Natural shot: Is a high draw with all clubs.

Favorite shot: I like a 115 yard shot. I'll take out the PW.. 3 quarter swing with an abreviated follow through, nice low ball flight with some spin.

Least Favorite: Id like to be playing a slight fade with all my clubs, unfortunately with the woods i find it difficult to hit a cut when its needed.

Tee shot on a short par 3. When I can get a PW or GW in my hand off the tee I feel like there is a great chance to stick it close. I love hitting my gap wedge from just about anywhere form 100 and in.

I hate any lie where the ball is below my feet. I'm 6'8" and tend to pick the ball clean or take very small divots at the most on flat land. Lower the ball and I'm shakey at best. Down hill lies are also tough for me. Combine the two and it's a total nightmare for me.

I love to putt and feel I can make any putt on the green. I also love to hit a high fade into the green, especially when I am in between clubs I aim left and open my iron face up and hit a high shot near the pin.

Favorite: Flop shot, this shot just came naturally to me. I can usually hit it really close and the ball just stops dead.

Least Favorite: Any type of draw. As you can see by my handicap I haven't figured this shot out. My natural ball flight is just a slight movement from left to right. Everytime I try to hit a draw I end up pulling the ball way left.

Actually, I'd like to take back what I said about the hardest shot in golf being fluffy sand. The hardest shot is a tee shot on a par 3. See, I hate all par 3's. Period. On a par 4 or 5, you've got an opportunity to make up for a bad shot. On a par 3, you can take dead aim at the pin, hit a perfect shot, and be shit out of luck if the wind catches it and carries it away, away into trouble.

My scoring average on par 3's, by the way, is 4.23.

I like lag putting if I am below the hole and less than 8 feet away.

I hate driver because I can't hit it. The club is simply too long. I have no sense of where the clubhead is and whether it is square. I have had my driver cut down to the same length as my 3 iron. Although I can now get ball contact, I get no additional distance so what's the point ?

Favorite shot(s):
- 30 or 45 yard pitches with my 56 degree. I spend a great amount of time on my 30,45,60,75,90 yard shots with my 56 & 60. I prefer the 30 or 45 yard shots with my 56 degree which usually means I have some green to work with.
- 105 or 115 yard shots with choked down PW. I spend a lot of time calibrating these two shots as well since I seem to have this shot quite often. Since I practice it a lot, I am very confident with these two distances.

Hardest shot(s) to play:
- Bunker shot that I have to get up quickly without a lot of green to work with.
- Driver that requires right to left (draw) ball flight.

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..
