Could not have said better!

My distances would not be as long as yours, probably because I cannot throw as far, but where it lands is the key.

Recovery shot is definitely the best part of my game. Approaches/putting are the weakest. I've got a better shot at parking a basket for a three if I'm 200' away in deep in the woods with only a spike-flick-anhyzer line to the basket than I do if I've got a wide-open line on a 150' throw.

Drives are above average -- especially forehand. Putts are where I lose my 1000-rated rounds.

I'm starting to try to play more rounds with only putters, trying to work on my 150' and closer game -- putts and approaches. Approaching used to be the best part of my game. But that's been several years -- gotta get it back.
