What shot do you fear the most? Here's a list by short game guru Dave Pelz:

Down slope swings
Downhill putt, long lag
Downhill, break left to right putt
Against the wall
Deep grass
Hard pan lies
Long Iron Shot
Grassy lie
Ball above feet
High lip sand shot
100 yard wedge shot from a wet lie
Sand trap shot
3 to 5 ft putt for birdie
Simple chips and pitches
First tee nerves
Curve around trees
Downhill in the sand
Buried lies in sand
Forced carry tee shot
Tight liePar 3 over the water
Ball below feet
High soft lob
Quick up and over

I have done all sorts of rubbish shots, seen all possible directions my ball can go, every trajectories my ball can fly, I am totally numb & immune to fear.

So any lies or conditions the ball is in, I just step up to it, try to think of a reasonable way to play it, then execute. If didn't pull it off, i just shrugged & tell myself, " Nvm, just 1 more bad shot to add to the millions I had." Laughing

Actually most of the time i just go to the ball deciding what to do, i'll pull something off. But if i step over the ball thinking, adjusting stance grip etc haha. I think mentally set up for failure

I notice that most golfers go to the range to practice what they are good at. ie, mid irons-short irons, hybrids and driver. You seldom see people hit a bucket of long irons, 3 woods and pitch shots.

If there is a shot that u fear, practice until its like licking your chops.

But there's no way at SG Driving Range to practice things like sidehill lies, uphill/downhill lies, fairway bunkers. I believe in US the ranges have facilities for these... sigh..

Maybe becos most golfers here are optimistic bunch...taken the 'good thoughts' as advocated by Dr.Rotella to the extreme..

Nowadays, I don range ...instead play Mystery golf....ie donno what score or swing till reach 1st hole

UL: TMCC Charity didn't used the Chillipadi and Big Bawang thingy ???

Dun think so, UL.

Wink

The overall champion at the Bushnell Charity (in benefit of Eden School--again?) event has an official handicap of 5.3 (pro level) but hits his six iron only 140 meters. However, he has a killer short game. (Maybe there is a lesson knowing this for all of us hacker here on the forum?)

It was a System 36 tourny. Only offered chicken rice for pre-game lunch!

I must have lost four brand new Pro V1 balls s in water, woods or deeply plugged into the soggy fairways.

I hope it does not rain for the Acushnet-Titleist media game at TMCC-Garden this Weds.

Maybe Acushnet will re-supply me next Weds with free new balls to replace the ones I lost last Friday.

Shorthitter has a big circular disc for one to stand on it to practice uneven lies.. I tried it before, its quite useful..

MM: Believe me, the low pay sux.

It's barely worth the benefits.

In fact, I may be changing jobs soon (non-golf related media).

CU this Thurs at MBGC.

MM: Not bad if no bills to pay, lah!

Me get less than half the pay as when I was managing editor of PC World Singapore & Malaysia and HardwareMag (HWM) about 8 years ago.

Older I get, the less pay I get!
