Your favorite shots to pull off?


Recommended Posts

Miracle recovery shots from nowhere that require excessive amounts of curvature or extreme flop shots to tucked pins.

 

Ive spent too much time watching Phil play golf for my entire life

Hard to beat the feeling of a flushed iron but I really love those 50-60 yd partial wedge shots. Lots of options/creativity involved and just so satisfying when the planning and execution come together. 

Heck yeah, 50-60 yards is my bread and butter, I might 3 putt, and I might top a drive, but that 60 yd wedge is going right where I want it.

flushing a long iron into a green.  

 

and in general a baby draw with just about anything.  I grew up with this huge banana slice so any time the ball moves an inch to the left (I'm left handed) it gives me heartburn.  I am trying to get over it as my instructor keeps telling me I'm more suited to hitting a fade.

High, tight draw, 4 or 5 iron. Those just feel so rare to catch perfectly that they stand out in my memory, maybe a half dozen standouts over the years.

 

The other would be a recovery shot that comes off the club exactly matching your "vision." Playing on the road a couple years back I hit a hooded pw with ~25 yards of draw around a tree to 3 feet in a wolf game and it pissed everyone off, glorious.

flushing an iron shot on a long par 5 to about 4-5ft, sinking the putt for double bogey. I want to tip my hat to the crowd for the roar because they couldn't see behind the dog leg that I skulled my driver and 3 wood into the water.

Hitting the fairway on #1 with a bunch of people around the tee box and practice green is always satisfying. I’m an adaptive player and that first swing tends to get a good bit of attention. 🙂

 

I also love clubbing up one or two sticks on a short approach (~110 yards) and hitting a low draw in there, very pleasing shot.

Literally any shot where I can use my wedges. Anything from 130 in is my favorite shot. I love hitting a high ball that just sticks right on the green, or even a low floater that just rolls up the green. Chip shots as well, I have a ton of confidence in my short game.

Gotta be a pure 4i draw that drops within 10 ft or just absolutely pounding a low spin drive down the middle. A perfectly struck wedge is up there too. Nothing like that crisp low zipper that one hop stops.

I'd have to say for me it would be a long iron stinger off the tee on a narrow par 4.

This past weekend, wanting to test myself and new Vokey's, decided to play all 18 holes purposely hitting short of aprons on Par 3s, Par 4s and 5s, relying on my NEW SM10 F52/12 and T58/4 wedges to get up and down.  Playing partners thought dementia had set in.  Got plenty of laughs, but guess who had the last laugh, finished 5 over.

 

If you think you have a short game, this is a great way to test if you really do.  Damn, I really like T58/4.  What a club.
