In the past, I talked about your go to shot! I asked if you had a shot that, no matter what was happening, it was a shot that you had total confidence in executing. Having this shot in your bag, definitely helps keep your scores low! However, this shot is a rescue shot, but not really a “that awe-inspiring”shot.
If you watch golf on TV, most of you will have seen the shot tracker. It traces the ball flight and each shot seems to always have that special shape of perfection, however I am not so sure this is the case. If you think of your game, I bet you can think of that one club that when you strike it perfectly, you are mesmerized until it comes to a complete stop!
I have one of those shots! This one shot keeps me enthralled for about 5 seconds as the ball leaves my club until it stops on the green. If you are wondering, it is my 8-iron.
When I strike this club pure, the sound is crisp, the ball climbs gracefully to its apex, and as the ball descends to the green it almost does it in slow motion. When it lands on the green, the ball takes one hop and stops instantly! The ball flies about 145 yards and really is golfing perfection!
Unfortunately, my pure 8-iron happens about once every couple of rounds. It is a club I do not practice with much, because I am confident that even my miss hits are acceptable. I guess I should change that next time at the range.
Do you have that one club that is better than the rest? If so, share your story; we would all like to share in your successes!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
