Golfers have debated this issue forever: "What is the most important shot in golf?"
On one side, there are those who say it is the tee shot. Ben Hogan firmly believed, that from a mental standpoint, one's whole round depended on the initial tee shot. Those arguing in favor of the putt, like legendary teaching pro Harvey Penick, felt that the short game around the green was the essence of scoring well.
Perhaps the most astute answer came from Willie Ogg, the original teaching professional selected by the PGA. According to Willie, the most important shot in golf is always "the next one." Can't argue with that!
