Nearly every shot was just plain ugly, slices, chunks, short....yet score was about the same. Putting was not bad, and I chipped one in so I guess that's what accounted for the not so bad final score. Still a very gruesome day! Some days are like that, nothing will work. (ESC helps too )
Ugly Round - average score

Been there many times. It's almost as bad when you feel like you had an excellent day but the score says otherwise.
I think we tend to feel like we did better on days with good ballstriking rather than days when the ballstriking is weak and maybe our short game is more on point; so it feels like we did better/worse than we did. Can't underestimate the putting game.
1) my misses aren't as bad as they used to be.
2) I'm better at staying in the game mentally. A blow up hole doesn't necessarily turn into a blow up round.
Since all of my shots are bad I have a LOT of flukes. (Just joking, sort of).
I really don't hit very many shots that I am really happy with (except for some of the shots to get out of trouble) but somehow manage to get around the course with a decent score most of the time. The short game and getting out of trouble are the only consistencies in my game.
