How often do you hole chips and bunker shots.....
Posted 22 May 2017 - 08:19 PM
I chipped in 5 or 6 times.
I don't hole a lot of long shots. Never have. In 17 rounds in 2017, I haven't holed out a chip or bunker shot. That's a pretty long stretch for me (I also haven't been playing great golf).

I'll never forget playing with a decent player (probably a 10) boasting he has a chip in every round, which has stuck with me as pushed the boundaries of credibility.
As said always good to have company.
Posted 23 May 2017 - 08:00 AM
Seriously, I hole-out about 6-8 times per year (60 rounds).
Posted 23 May 2017 - 08:04 AM
My bunker game is good in the sense that I can get out but it's really poor in distance control and accuracy. Don't ever remember holing out from the bunker. I've retired my Eye2 L from bunker duty and will be experimenting with my 56.14.

My best ever putt was on a sloping green at El Rompido North Course. That was probably a six yard putt, downhill and across the slope. No-one expected it to go in (least of all me) and watching it just roll in a fairly sharp arc and drop in was wonderful
I also remember the first chap who teed off next because his ball broke apart.

Longest putt I've made or seen made is maybe 30' too. Season is still early here.

Same here, although my chipping seems to have improved over the last couple of weeks. More 'up and down's' than earlier in the year.
Bunker play is another story. I usually get out but hardly close enough to have a decent chance to hole the putt. The occasional 'sandy par' feels like a birdie to me.
Unfortunately, it's not something I can practice. The practice bunkers are beautiful with fluffy sand where you can practice hitting two inches behind the ball and watch it fly out on a cushion of sand. Just like the announcers say every weekend during the PGA broadcast. But on the course, you never know what you're going to get. Sometimes just a few mm of sand which feels fluffy under your feet but when the club enters the sand and the bounce hits the hard layer under the few mm of sand, the club scoots forward and skulls the ball over the green (and most likely into another bunker).
Other times the few fluffy mm of sand is not even there and it's like hitting from a cart path. Tough for me to get the ball up over the lip.
Wet bunkers with compact sand are my favorites. Not too many problems from there....
