You aren't scoring and you certainly aren't a 20 handicapper.
You also are not consistently hitting it 280 and you are not hitting your 3 wood "dead straight off the deck every time" as this guy claims.
My point is that in addition to making stuff up - these people seem to think that after a few weeks you "suck" if you aren't as good as all the other internet liars.
THEN......they post about how they are in a "slump" because they had a bad round or are wondering why they had a bad range session.
Expectations get out of control.
It's like a teenage boy thinking that girls who are photoshopped and with fake everything are normal and real girls don't measure up. Reality bites.
These guys will eventually play with a real golfer after talking themselves up, saying "I'm about a 12" and will score 120 and say "I don't usually hit it like that".
And they ask for advice on clubs based on their "handicap" - or worse still, manufacturers direct certain products at certain "handicaps".
So....the 30 handicapper who think's he's a "12", or the 25 who thinks he's a "6" is forever in a cycle of delusion and disappointment.
