Horrible round of golf tonight. I was a bit early so I did a 3 hole loop while waiting for my buddy. Par, Bogey, Par. Everything is working fine.
My buddy shows up and we tee off. Pull-Shank it OB, which I believe is a shot that only @cipher and myself can pull off. Tee it up again and boom it with a nice high trajectory...and a 20 yrs push . Find it, chip out yadda, yadda, yadda...card a snowman.
Second hole (par 3) another huge push into the trees, I know it opens up a bit on the other side for the cart path so might be ok-ish. Tee up a provisional, push it so bad I think it may have been a shank. Continued hilarity ensues for the remainder of the round. Pulled it together for back to back pars at one point but was too out of it at that point to salvage much from the round.
It's funny, I was getting great contact but with insane directional variances, which lead to doubt and on-course swing tinkering which lead to confusion and chaos. Not really too concerned, I connected with my swing enough times during the round to know I still have it just couldn't recover enough to turn the round around. I probably need to shift my play/practice ratio a bit, I tend to just hit the course instead of the range when the opportunity arises. Plus the course is already paid for, the range is out of pocket.
