Weekly Reader Poll

Weekly Reader Poll Results: What is your scary golf shot?

Jordan Spieth's heroics at last week's Travelers Championship disguised the fear of bunkers held by many regular golfers.
The most daunting shot for Australian golfers is, by far, a pitch over a bunker, according to this week’s iSeekGolf Weekly Reader Poll.

Of this week’s voters, 34 per cent said playing a pitch shot over a bunker is the golf shot which makes them most nervous.

‘A pitch over a bunker’ took more than twice as many votes as the next most daunting shot, which was a four-foot putt (15 per cent).

The rest of the votes were split fairly evenly between the remaining four options.

Results: Which of these golf shots makes you most nervous?
  • A greenside bunker shot
  • The first tee shot of a round
  • A four-foot putt
  • A shot over a water hazard
  • A pitch over a bunker
  • A shot with out of bounds in play
