I have no doubt that everyone experiences this issue. And on those days where it all clicks, and you shoot the round of your life, it's what keeps you coming back again and again. You always know you can do it. so you get up and try again the next day.

If I can get at least one good shot I can go home pretty happy. Weather it's a good putt or upshot or a spectacular drive. I need at least one thing to work for me during a round.

That's why ams are ams and pros are pros. Otherwise we'd all be pros. Sometimes, when everything is clicking, we seem like pros; but a short while later we return to our am ways.

It's not "either one or the other". It could be argued that the approach is the most important part of the game.

...drive, approach, putt

Given the choice, I would rather have a day of great driving. The thing that demoralizes me most is one of those days when you're hitting the first tree on every hole. A 50-foot tee shot into the shule is much harder to recover from, at least for me, than a missed putt. I think it's because that missed tee shot ruins the whole hole, whereas when you miss a putt, you're usually left with a drop-in and you can put the mistake behind you. But I dunno. Maybe it's just me.

It is not just you. I am not fond of hitting an early tree in front of me either.

No matter what I would rather putt better than drive better. A bad drive always leaves a chance of recovery. A bad putt leaves you with another stroke.

Agreed sidewinding! I am fairly accurate with my drives, but throw a little under 300ft on avg, and my putting, although starting to improve, isn't the best. I have won many casual rounds with my approach game. I don't have the distance, and I'm not sinking 30ft putts all day, so learning to throw a nice approach from a variety of situations has really been what keeps me in the game.

Very well put TalbotTrojan! That last line sums it up perfectly.
