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.

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.

    • I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding. Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball. IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways. Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances. I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together. I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well. Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁
    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
