i got new clubs about a month ago and had been having a time with the long irons and have been hitting a strong fade that really killed my distance. i couldn't figure it out. but i went to the range friday night and it dawned on me that i wasn't turning my wrists enough through impact. as soon as i did that, i was launching my 4i straight and even with a draw. i hit an entire small bucket with the 4i and hit 40/50 balls 200 yards and right straight on target. it was the best range session i've ever had.
saturday i went out and played the worst round of golf in my life. mishits, shanks, slices, topping, fat. pretty much every bad shot in golf i experienced multiple times this weekend. at some point on the 4th or 5th hole, i kind of gave up. i would have left but the girlfriend wanted to keep playing. i think i shot a 59 on the front 9, and usually i'm a low 90s player. i had also had about 4 mimosas before the round which really screwed up my concentration, though i don't know if that's a legitimate excuse. honestly though by the 4th hole i just did not want to play anymore.
and i haven't wanted to play since. i'm so frustrated and have no idea what happened and why i melted down like i did after a night of brilliance (for me) at the range. has anyone ever had this happened? i guess i need to go back to the range to restore my confidence. either that or no more brunch and mimosas for me before a round.
