What’s the shot that makes you quiver in fear?

For me, a shot over a bunker to a tight lie and close pin location!

Close second would be any shot over water

Island green and a par 5 with a “how much can you carry” element.

I stayed dry both days on the island green and hit my only long’ish drive when I pulled the crap out of my tee ball and ended up by a junction box closer to #1’s tee then 18’s FW. Day two, two straight blocks that splashed harmlessly 20 yards from shore. I became a big cheerleader once I decided my ball wasn’t counting.

Shamefully, these days it’s a chip shot - especially off a tight lie. So ridiculous...

You could put a shot glass full of water anywhere in front of me and I’d find a way to put my ball in it. Water lives in my head rent free, and I have no idea how to overcome that.

You can add “anything” in front of forced carry and it’s a mental mind-experience.

My home course, hole 2 is 172 over water. Probably only 140 to carry it though. There are a lot of my balls at the bottom of that damn lake. I do have a string of about 12 in a row up/downs from the drop area at 90 yards or so. I’m not that good, but 2nd shot me is much MUCH better.

So I can three putt for bogey or splash one and get up and down for bogey? Give me the excitement, even with the lost ball.

Hmm. I knew I was doomed on a long par 3. (229). Front was water, left, right, and long OB. Wind in my face and I just prayed my 4h would carry. It’s the one times there’s been a bag gap that’s screwed me. 3w would be long OB so I took the lateral. 4h one groove high didn’t carry. Opponent (@Hamfist ) hit the rocks on the edge and damn near holed out for what would be one of the luckiest hole outs ever. I concede and he proceeds to.....

(I’ll let him complete the story.... )

All of my home course greens are raised with tight lies around them. Little 10-15 yard shots that need to land softly off of a tight lie are the scariest.
