Driver; you're not making par if you hit it OB, but you could if you've just missed a green with a wedge/iron

1) Driver - a prerequisite for all par 4's and 5's.
2) Hybrids - I use the 2h - 6h.  The driver is the only wood I carry.
3) Short game (20 yards and in) - I am not on in regulation on most holes and need a good pitch or chip

I am with Ferguson on this one.  Approach shots, especially with mid-irons and hybrids, make all the difference for me.  I am pretty much going to make par or better anytime I can put a putter in my hand on or around the green.  Miss greens far enough where I have to elevate the ball with a pitch or bunker shot and my par percentage starts dropping.


Fortunately,  I drive the ball pretty straight and the putter has always been strong.  

This always been the case with me: When I hit more greens I start putting better.  Then when I start putting better I don't feel as though I have to aim right at the stick.  I can aim for the fat part of the green and let the putter go to work.  

Suffice to say it's easier on the brain when you don't have to be as accurate.

Right now, it's driver.

I play a short par 3/4 course where I do not use driver. Par 33, average score - 39

Play regular length 18 holes par 72... average score... 91. Long game is killing me and it's not because of length, it's mainly because I can't control the big stick, two way misses... get into trees and need to punch out, etc. Some days I consider going hybrid off every tee and trying to make a few birdz on shorter par 4 or 5.

If I could pick one golf superpower, it would be to hit the ball longer which would result in wedges in my hands rather than mid-irons or worse into the greens.  But you've gotta run what you've brung - so for my game the approach shots are the key.

Pretty much the same here.  Not a great driver of the ball, but keep it in play.  One of the best parts of my game is lag putting. So if I can just get putter in hand then pars will flow.  De-stresses the whole round.  Starts with solid approach shots though.

For me I’ve noticed my scores drop when I’m doing well off the tee. And that has meant hitting either 5 wood or 4 iron off the tee most of this season. I’ve played one round with my new driving iron and that was also a good round. I feel that irons and wedges are the strongest part of my game because I feel confident with any of those clubs in my hands. So to go along with getting better at driving, I would say my putting definitely has to improve. I typically two putt so if I could sprinkle some one putts in there that could take 2-4 strokes possibly off of my score

Depends on what course I play. At my home track it's driver/tee shot and it isn't close. I play a short but very tight course. If you hit it straight you have short irons in but if you spray it you're dead. The tee shot sets everything up. On longer open courses where accuracy off the tee isn't such a big deal it might be the irons/wedges if the greens are small, or if the greens are big it is the putter.

Driver. Putter is very important as well, but the last couple years when my driver has been off, it has been OFF. My off driver days used to still be pretty playable so it was usually my wedges and putter that make a difference. Now if I am going to have an off day it is determined well before the putter and wedges get a chance.

My Gap Wedge.  I try to make my approach shots 100y from the hole and my gap wedge is perfect for it.  the closer I'm at the hole, thebetter the  chances I get a par, or even a birdie.  Heck, I holed out for eagle on a par 4 a few months ago with it.

Definitely the driver. If I'm able to hit that club well everything else will fall into place for me.

If every tee shot is wayward I will struggle to make pars the whole round. I hate missing that 3 foot just as much as the next guy, but when I'm not driving the ball well that was a putt for bogey or worse.

When I'm striping the ball off the tee & miss the 3 footer it was for birdie, but will still make par. (usually)

Driver, then the 56* wedge around the green.  If I can get those 4-8 chip shots per round within 1 putt range, I'm golden.  Same with sand shots with the 56*.  My home course is so damn tough for a senior player, though, that it's all gotta be going good to avoid the crap-show.  You just can't scramble your way around this place.

Driver by far for me.  If I'm hitting fairways I am probably shooting a good score.  I find the rest of my game to be pretty serviceable even when I'm not "in the zone."  However if I'm off with my driver, it can kill my score with drives all over the planet.

For me driver.  If I hit it straight, I have a shorter iron into the green, and in turn my GIR's go up which leads to less chipping up and down situations and more 2 putts and hopefully 1 putts.

Driver.

Start off the tee determines rest of the hole. If I'm in the trees then I've got to advance ball as much as possible to set up an approach which puts extra pressure on the short irons/wedges to even have a prayer at saving par with the flatstick.

Its the age old question isnt it.  Those 3 clubs (driver, wedge, putter) have often been used to describe the most important in the bag.  You will get varying opinions on the order of those, so I think its really about your game, the courses you play, and your ability to recover from misses with each of those 3 clubs.  For ME, my best score depend on the following:

1a.  Driver/tee game.  I score so much better if I get off the T and am safe.  It also sets the tone for the round, IMO.  Nothing better than striping a driver/3w/long iron knowing you got a great chance to birdie or par.  Im usually running to my ball so I can hurry up while the good juju is flowing.
1b.  Short putts.  My nemesis.  Im a decent lag putter.  I psych myself out on short putts.  im taking 5ft and in.  If only they were all gimmies...Im too technical here - paralysis by analysis.
2. Lag putting.  Im not too shabby here on courses I am familiar with.  Im pretty confident in my abilities here.  Its mainly about feel for me here, Im not too technical.
3.   Wedge play.  I practice this a ton.  Miles of Golf in Ohio.  They have a great practice facility and where I like to hit from on the range, there are flags at 80, 100, 115 or so.  Ive gotten where I can use multiple clubs to achieve those distances so I feel really good about my wedge game.  My favorite is 80 yards with a 3/4 54* wedge.  Just love it.  I can also use a full 58* there or a knockdown 50*.  Ive got options depending on how Im playing and what the hole calls for.  I use them all and I am confident in all.

Kinda long winded there - my bad.

For me, it has to be the driver/tee shot. I would say it's one of the strongest parts of my game. My home course is extremely tight, miss the fairway and you're happy to find your ball tight. If I'm hitting out of the short gras all day, i'll be around par.  Next would be the short irons (8,9,pw,gw). Most of my approaches are around 125 and in. Putter is usually pretty solid, not great, but never usually any 3 putts.

Driver without a doubt. Have to hit fairways and eliminate penalty strokes or having to punch out etc.  Driver sets everything else up. Then the putter. You can save a lot of strokes with the putter
