So, I guess it is about time I join into this discussion. I've managed to break 100 once by playing on a much easier course than my home course - shorter, flatter, and much less OB and no forests to lose a ball in. Yesterday's round was typical score of 103 a lonely par, an equally lonely birdie, and a number of really bad holes. The worst holes I just gave up on, no way around it. I got kind of fed up with my difficulties off the tee. It gets in my head.
The funny thing, I know what I did yesterday and it was the same thing I did for a few holes last weekend. I start trying to adjust my driver set up to avoid a slice and I make things much worse. I figured this out last weekend, but still did the same blasted things.
Tomorrow I will try to absolutely not to do this crap.
Golf season has been underway for about six weeks now where I live. So far, it's been somewhat good with some moderate improvement in my game. I've played close to ten rounds, with one abnormally high score of 114 and a low of 101. I'm happy that the average has been around 105.
This season I've been focusing on keeping a steady head during my swing, and it's been paying major dividends of the tee. I've also been trying to make sure I get a complete follow through. It's been a lot easier to score lower when your ball is on the proper fairway, and not OOB or on an adjacent hole.
The last two weeks my iron game has been suffering. It could be time to actually start practicing.
