When watching the PRO's it seems that the overwhelming cheers for the average hole is for the shot into the green from ~50 - 170 yards out, and stopping the ball close <10 feet from the hole. (or in of course).

I bet you feel pretty good when you can pull that off also.

Sounds like perfect golfing ... and the spectators make it sound that way also.

 

If this was a consistent part of your game, how would it change your score? 10 strokes? Maybe more.

 

If Golf is a precision game, what is it that makes precision consistent?

i think it is practicing this approach shot, and developing Trust in your Swing.

Which strokes offer more forgiveness? I believe it is the Tee shots on Par 4's and 5's. But every hole still has a shot into the Green.

How many shots are you taking to get it Close?

 

If you can get the ball 'On the Green and Close' consistently, this would seem to be where you could save the most strokes.

 

Something I have been thinking about and testing.

There are a few on this here forum, *Mouldy, Obe and Mick spring to mind, who specialise in the 50-170 yard shots and I would back them in every day of the week to execute it well. How their second and third shots go is a completely different story though

I feel very uncomfortable in such esteemed company. Please refrain from including me in any such comparisons. Thanks in advance.

It’s all important - equally important

But no doubt scoring and going low will come from good approach shots

I'm good at getting my green-side bunker shots into that 50-170 range.

Very few of them fall outside those limits.

Let me know what you think?

 

No stroke is anymore forgiving than any other.

 

Every shot in golf counts same value. its only the number which counts ie a par is a par

 

I think your expectations on how to lower your score by 10 shots are high and unrealistic. What you see on golf coverage onTV are the highlights not reality.

 

If you spend hours and hours an driving range hitting ball to develop the skills to stop the ball inside 10 ft (3m) from 170 y (155m) every time this would put you in the golf hall of fame .

 

given that  the closest to hole from that distance 170 Y that players achieve on average on PGA tour is 23 ft = 8m.

 

and from 100 yds = 90 m the best players in world are hitting to 15 ft average

 

so  to answer your question

 

would being able to be to hit 10 ft every time anywhere inside 170 yds improve your game by 10 shots

YES

 

But if you want to bring your game down by 10 shots Far better to improve your course management, keep ball in play and play each shot on its merit and play the shot you know you can play not the one you  think you should play.
