No doubt, Neurotic.  Jekyll and Hyde as well.


I never know how I am going to play and overanalyze my game. Can shoot a low 80 one day and shoot a 95 the next.


Happy as heck when I am playing well and quiet when I am not.  Emotional to a fault but not cussing loud or throwing stuff either. 


Overall, I am not the best partner to those who just want to play and have fun.  Probably take myself and game too serious at times.  I can't help it.  Its the competitive part of me.

Definitely the neurotic. I get too down on myself during rounds, but I think that's what has made me the golfer I am today.

I am mostly the Intimidator, but I am not totally without speech on the golf course. I will carry on a few conversations during a round, but I prefer to stick to myself and play my game. I am really bad on the range. I have a specific warm-up routine and I like to arrive at the golf course at least a hour ahead of my round in order to stretch and get ready. This is not always possible though as I play a lot of early morning rounds before 6:30am. All tournament rounds though I follow my routine. I even listen to headphones while I putt and I hit balls as far away from everyone else as I can get. No distractions!

Definitely Steady Eddie. I play with two younger guys who both bomb it, but I always beat them because they have "Waterloo" holes (triple bogeys or worse) while I typically can go an entire round without more than a single double bogey or three putt.

Steady Eddie. I rarely shoot below 76 or above 82. Doesn't matter how good or bad I'm hitting it...I always seem to shoot 79.

i guess the closest would be neurotic with a hint of accumulator.  i always keep a mental tab on everyone else's shots just to make sure no one tries to squeeze in a par that should've been a bogey, but i never count it up out loud.

Steady Eddie except for that myth of hitting a lot of fairways.  e2_whistling.gif

I'm in the same boat. I'm sure i drive some of the ppl i play with crazy because i'm always focusing on my bad shots rather than the good ones.


Just last weekend i sliced it off the tee like a jackass into the next fairway, had 120 to the green (protected by a bunker). I hit it into the bunker....Chipped out of the bunker to about 5 feet and made the putt for a par. Here I still had my par on one of the harder holes of the course, but I couldn't stop bitching about my first two shots on that hole lol

I'm closest to being the automaton. I have a consistent preshot routine but I don't have a consistent swing.
