Your Favorite Shot In Golf

What is your favorite shot in golf? If you take a moment to think about it, there is that one shot that you love more than any other. Maybe you like it because it keeps you out of trouble. Maybe because the ball flight is something to marvel. Or even it is because the of the sound the ball makes off your club. The reason can be just about anything, but I bet you have a favorite shot in golf.

As I think about this perplexing question, I can visualize every shot in my bag. I can see me standing on the tee as I prepare to smash the cover off the ball. With no difficulty I can see my set up for a wedge shot into the green. And I can imagine making that long left to right putt for birdie! I can visualize every shot, so narrowing down the options in my game is a bit difficult.

Well, I have narrowed down my select too three possibilities. Here are my options for my favorite shot in golf:

  1. I am on the edge of the green. The ball is sitting on top of the grass and I have to a perfect lie. I have several club selection options, but I reach for my trusty 7-iron. Following my pre-shot routine, I envision the ball going into the hole. I step up over the ball and make my swing. Right at impact, I know when I have hit the ball pure. The crisp click I hear as the ball cleanly bounces off the club face is music to my ears! I love that sound!
  2. It is 6 am on a Saturday morning. I grab my clubs out of the car and quietly walk towards the first tee. I am the only person at the course. The sun is just starting to rise, revealing the beauty of the course hidden by the night. I hear the birds announcing the morning and letting the world know that a new day of adventure has finally arrived. I stand on the tee box, survey my surrounds and breath deeply. Every time I am grateful as I take my first swing of the day!
  3. I am standing on the tee box of any par three. I check the wind, pin location, and possible hazards I must conquer to hit the green. I think of the possibilities of my next swing as I approach my ball. The risk reward of every par three weighs on my mind. Finally, I clear my head and make that full swing. The anticipation as my ball heads towards the green offers hope beyond imagination. This is a golf shot.

So what do you think? Well golfing fans, I will take what is behind door number 2! The serenity I feel early in the morning is really tough to beat. That first swing early in the morning is my favorite shot in golf.

  1. This is an awesome post. I love elevated tee shots where I feel confident to step on a driver and let it fly. I love the 100 – 115 yard approach shot and feel very confident with a pitching wedge or gap wedge in my hand. On the greens, I’m confident when friends say ‘it’s good, pick it up’, ha ha. Loved reflecting on this and it is a great feeling when you’re facing a shot you really like.

    Thanks, Mike

  2. My favorite shot for my golf game is when the ball lands in the fairway :-). I know I have a fun time in the woods but it is so nice when I don’t have to scramble every shot. Something I hope to fix this year.

  3. I love a big drive when I know that I haven’t held anything back and it ends up going straight or my typical power fade. I also like my trusty 7 iron from 150-160 yards depending on conditions. I wish my short game was better and then I would like my wedge shots more, but I am not there yet. I also like being the only one on the course, for me this is usually early evening. Breaking free from the house and rolling my cart to the first tee always gives me a rush.
