Although dunking a bunker shot would be cool; driving a par 4 is awesome. You don't always get the opportunity to putt for eagle on a Par 4 and if you make the putt then it really helps your scorecard! 😀

I'm thinking Par 5 in 2 is for me the least likely shot to pull off, so I'll go with that.

I went with making a putt over 40ft because that could be a score saver (long par saving putt) or a score changer dropping it for a birdie or eagle.

Plus, even if I drive a par 4 in one, or reach a par 5 in two, what's to prevent me from 3 putting and losing all advantage gained.

Of the options... 
  • Make a putt over 40 ft ✔️
  • Punch through a tunnel in the trees ✔️
  • Drive a par 4 in 1 ✔️
  • Reach a par 5 in 2 ✔️
  • Dunk a bunker or chip shot ✔️ (If by Dunk you mean literally into the cup then no... but I've chipped in a few times)
Having done these all at some point in time... Driving a par 4 in 1 is the most exciting.  I did it one time last year and there's something special about it.  Maybe it's watching the rest of your group hit second and maybe even third shots before needing a putter, or knowing you have an eagle putt coming.

This was a tough one for me as I have done all of these.. I chose drive a par 4 in 1. There is something about turning a par 4 effectively into a par 3 that is very satisfying..

I went with drive a Par 4.

I’ve done it a few times, one of them was an Ace. But nothing compares to sticking a green from afar.

I’ve dunked a bunker shot, holes a 40 foot putt, and I punch out from the trees regularly... with a lot of success most of the time.

Par 5 in 2? Yeah that’s cool.

Right now I’d pick any of the above.

  • Other: I like all the choices but I would love to pull off (have not yet) the long iron shot, spin back into the cup shot LOL...not sure what you want to call that stop, spin & dunk?

While I have done all the selections I chose other just because you see this on the TV it just looks so cool and have not done it. (2nd would be the 40' putt, fantastic feeling watching these just fall in)

Shockingly, I can actually say I've done all of these at one time or another and (with some luck) will probably do it all again. So I chose "other". I'd just like to hit the shot I intended to the first time all the time lol!

If I were to pick one of the options above, it'd probably be punching one through a tunnel of trees. It's full of risk, and is the most exhilarating to pull off IMO.

As soon as I can... I’m going to try a Lee Trevino “hold shot” with the 2 iron. The launch I get with the PW is dang near stinger...

Maybe a real worm burner with the 2 iron.

Wish I could commit to swinging like that all the time...

I choose to reach a par 5 in 2, for two reasons. One, I'm a short hitter, so I'd be pretty stoked. But here's the real reason: it means that I hit two good shots in a row. All the other options are just one shot. So I think it wins by default 🙂

Par 4 in 1

Probably the most rare shot of the bunch for just about any golfer out there.

There is nothing better than hitting a bad shot and then following it up by holing the next one, either a chip or a bunker shot. It is a great way to get a round jumpstarted or back on track.

Last fall I hit the flagstick with a drive on a 286 yard par 4 as people were marking their score behind it. Usually don’t hit it quite that far, gave them a shock and a bunch of high fives all around, made the 5 footer for eagle. But nothing feels as good as that long lag putt you hit pure and watch it die into the center of the cup.

I have been playing golf now for a long time and I would love to make a hole in 1. I've had so many that spin back and hit the lip. Or disappear and you get excited to find its sitting directly behind the flag. Or the ones with the pitch mark right in line but looks like the ball horse shoed around the flag.  Is that too much to ask lol.  I mean Kirke's already done it. Lol

For me it was an easy decision of par 4 in 1.  This basically guarantees a birdie.  Same with par 5 in 2, but that's something that isn't near as difficult to accomplish in my opinion.

I've only been golfing for a couple of years, but I've been lucky enough to do all of these except dunk and bunker or chip shot. Driving a par 4 is a pretty good feeling, but since my chipping is probably the most inconsistent part of my game I think that would be way cooler.

I went with par 5 in 2. I think as @GolfSpy MPR said, that would mean two consecutive good shots. There's a par 5 at one of the local courses that plays 395 from the whites, and I've never hit it. Between the skinny, sloping fairway and the narrow green, it's just tough for me. 

 

I've actually hit a green on a par 4, another short hole at the same course. I've had the distance plenty of times, but not the accuracy. When I did hit it I just sat in the cart stunned for a moment.
