What us everyone’s Most inconsistent golf shot


Recommended Posts

For me there is the dreaded chip shot from 40-60 yards. I will hit a beautiful drive down the middle and will be 60 out and my buddy will be like here comes a double. And sure enough I’ll chuck the first chip 5 yards. Blade the second chip over the green. Finally get on and be so in my head that I miss the 2 foot putt. Does anyone else have a struggle like mine?

What club are you using for this shot?

There was a time when the 50-60 yard shot was no good for me. I didn't hit it bad, I just misjudged the distance. I just stopped leaving myself with that distance until I was comfortable hitting it. Now the only real inconsistent shot I have is the low check shot that you just nip off the ground.

Anything inside 75 yards, at times I'll hit a beautiful shot dead stop by the flag, other times it will be a towering 175 yard shot most of the time it will be a ground ball that rolls forever the sand wedge "stinger"

My most inconsistent golf shot is trying to go for the green in two on par 5’s. I can hit a drive normally around 275-285 carry, so I get in my head, “man it would be awesome, to get on the green and have a chance at eagle.” That rarely happens...I either try to muscle my 4 iron or get out my 3/5 wood and place the shot. My problem is I can’t hit my 3/5 wood consistently (hand me down, will eventually get fit for y’all next purchase), but I trick myself into thinking I can.
 

Lately, I’ve really been focusing on laying up to 75-100 yards and in, but my no laying up mindset always creeps into my mind.

Chip shots near the green and pitch shots from 30 yards and in. Wish I could practice more but courses rarely have any dedicated areas to such shots.

Of the shots played on every hole, I get in trouble I with my driver more than irons or putting.

However, I’m more inconsistent out of greenside traps. I almost always get out in one shot - but if I’m within 8 feet of the hole, it’s mostly luck. And at my new regular course, the traps are always wet/damp sand, which makes getting out even less predictable. I can’t remember the last soft sand lie I’ve had, I’m afraid I’m going to forget how to play out of dry sand...

I never practice 60* flop shots either, so that’s a crap shoot when I’m forced to do it (not often).

The dreaded 60 ft putt for eagle.  I RARELY make those.  haha.  In all seriousness, I would say the 60yd bunker shot.  We have a few places on my course where you can find yourself in them.  I never practice this shot so obviously it would be an area of weakness.  I will also mention, at my course, not all bunkers are created equal.  Some have TONS of sand in them while others have a very thin amount of sand.  It is so frustrating as a golfer.  Fill all bunkers with the same type and amount of sand.

You have tried hybrids and irons as well? The past year I started to put the driver away if it was one of those rounds. My go to is 4 iron or 2 hybrid

I start off with four iron on the first tee or five wood depending on the course to avoid the same situation of a miss with the driver

Lob wedge. It either goes 10 yards or 50. Nothing in between. I still have it in my bag, but never use it. Probably should go and practice with it to understand what I'm doing wrong.

I’m assuming skull and chunk? Blade or cavity back?

i struggled when I first got the lob everything fat. I suggest starting with half/quarter swings practicing. Lobs and art but love them out of sand

Exactly. Skull and chunk. Blade, and I've tried the half/quarter swings with little difference. I really just think I need to spend some time with it to get used to it. But thanks for the suggestion!

I have a very steep swing and was chunky for a while with my blade lob. Recent changes to cavity back wedges but if I can master the blades lob wedge you can too. Good luck

I find my first shot just sucks, period. I just like to get it out of the way and get on with my round. I’m really good at recovery shots; probably because I get to try them so often...

Downhill/uphill lies I always have to talk myself on how to hit them every time. Setup is a lot longer and people probably wonder what that guy is mumbling to himself....

No joke, I do the same thing. Talk it through, Adjust my shoulders to the down hill or uphill, aim right for uphill side hill because the ball will go left, aim left for down hill side hill.  How much left or right, I think this much. Practice swing, pray, execute. CRAP, CHUNKED IT. CRAP TOPPED IT.

Well at least the next shot is level. Maybe up and down for par.

For me there is the dreaded chip shot from 40-60 yards. I will hit a beautiful drive down the middle and will be 60 out and my buddy will be like here comes a double. And sure enough I’ll chuck the first chip 5 yards. Blade the second chip over the green. Finally get on and be so in my head that I miss the 2 foot putt. Does anyone else have a struggle like mine?

I can't hit a 90 yard wedge shot. I hit it fat 98% of the time and thin it the other 2%. I miss more greens from 100 yards and in than any other golfer alive I'm willing to bet.
