What us everyone’s Most inconsistent golf shot

But that feeling is second to none....waking a long putt in when you know it’s gonna drain


True, I’ve drained a couple. A 20’ Eagle putt on a Par 4 felt good last year. The other one was a few years ago, like 75’ no chance, all luck.

By far it's any lie on a hillside. If the ball is above my ankles or a club head below my feet I have to chip out sideways or face a 50/50 chance of hitting the ball at all. My local course is cut through a bunch of hills and if you get out of position you have a good chance of finding yourself trying to scrape your way out of an awkward lie. Had a few round killer holes caused by awkward lies.

My most dreaded shot is anything 100 and in. I hit my wedges to inconsistent, and I can never figure out the 1/2 or 3/4 speed on my PW.

After playing for many years I think the worse shot is the one after you just nutted your driver out to where it has not been before. It seems like most players then hit a bad shot. For me it is the buried lie under the lip of a greenside bunker.

Hitting a wedge out of shallow water 💦.  

I don’t know if it will go way longer than I expected or I will drive it depper into the pond.

And  will I get my shirt and pants all wet and muddy?

Someone else here has to practice this shot a bunch for me and tell me how to play it.

Thanks in advance.

You just described my course if you are not in the fairway.  I had to take a lesson from our pro on how to hit off slopes.  That was 3 years ago and I still have to practice those lies to have any chance.

I’d say anything between 20-40 yards. Outside of that I have a good idea of what to play but also have lower expectations. Inside of that, I know I should but putting it within 15 feet and I never do.

My first thought was 3 Wood off the deck, but then I realized that that shot is very consistent - it consistently sucks! For me it's probably trying to play a draw to get out of trouble when I'm in the trees on the left side of the fairway and still want to hit the green in two. Seems like it's 50/50 whether the shot does what I want, or I launch a bomb that goes dead straight and ends up two fairways over.

Sounds like a need a lesson! It’s taught me the value of hitting fairways, and the value in taking your medicine and chipping out sideways. 🙂

Tee shots... Hasn’t mattered if it was an iron, a hybrid, a fairway metal, or driver. Weird.

I've learned to hit off most lies, and I can always advance the ball down the fairway if I don't get greedy.  Loft...  that is, more loft, is my friend.

Good point, but moot, as I have banned my 3 wood to the garage for the month of June.

Well, that's certainly a way to use a more lofted club!!  

The fairways at my course are undulating so we get downhill and uphill lies.  My 3W works very well on flat and uphill lies, but on downhill lies, I've learned that my 3H works better more often.  Since I don't have a lot of distance off the tee, I can't afford to banned my 3W just for downhill lies.

The best thing to do with a club that's misbehaving is to beat it into submission on the range.  Generally speaking, the clubs we hit the worst on the course are the ones we hit the least on the range.

Rather than give up on my 3W I am just going to give it a rest and concentrate practice on my 4H and 7W.
