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.
