Since there is no list to choose from, I'd wish for consistency.

Assuming I retain my current skills, draining putts is the easy pick.

Now the poll shows up! Wasn't there before (maybe I clicked on the thread too soon). While I would like overall consistency, choosing one option off your list it would have to be the putting (100% C1, 40% outside). That would be an incredible boost to my game and as the saying goes - drive for show, putt for dough.

Putting I know how to improve. That’s why I have a practice basket. The rest is a black art.

Give me the ability to always hit my line and I’ll be a lot happier on the course.

I had a practice basket for a couple years and rarely used it. my 200' game is golden and my putting is good enough I don't want to bore myself practicing.

The answer to this question really doesn't have any bearing on what I practice. The skills described above generally have significant overlap.

For me, I'm still learning and progressing since I've only played for 5 months. On that list, I think adding big bombs would be the thing that I'd wish for because it seems like the thing I'm least likely to accomplish at this point. And with accurate big bomber skill, I should certainly be able to throw with decent accuracy at shorter distances.

I can putt and approach.
I need distance.
