I'm a whiffer, not very often, but when it happens I count the stroke.
My whiffs take place when my backswing or vision is restricted by some sort of vegetation at ground level or low hanging tree branches. It stinks, but I count it.
Recently I witnessed a player in our group (he's in the rough with nothing in the way) take a couple of practice swings, then steps up to the ball; grounds the club; hesitates before taking a swing and whiffs.
Without missing a beat, he takes two more real quick practice swings and then hits the ball.
Scores are announced as we walk off the green and he neglected to include his whiff as a stroke.
He knows better. I do not understand.
My partner saw it happen also, we let it slide and still won our match.
So anyways... I'm a counting whiffer!
How about you... do you know any whiffers?
Have you ever whiffed & if so, do you count it?
And if you have the courage to admit you do not count it, please explain why.
