So for the last two months I have been getting really into golfing. Going to the range a few times a week, getting to a course once sometimes twice a week.
When I first walk up to a tee, whether on a green or at a range my first few shots are cruddy. Which is fine, I need to find my groove. Here is where it goes bad.
I go to a range and after a few fizzle out, top out, or slice at ungodly angles I start getting into my rhythm. I can put the ball 250+ on a fly with a pretty good location that would be on the fairway or just into the rough, if said course was straight. Once in my rhythm I do ok. I will still have a couple cruddy shots sprinkled in there.
Fast forward to a course. 1st tee. Ok its my turn. Set up tee, practice swing. SWOOSH!
Miss/ topped/ dramatically hooked/10 foot roll you name it.
Thankfully I usually golf with my dad and its ok to just swing over but it is so damn embarrassing. I don't try to kill the ball, especially as of late. I just want to be able to make contact and put it in play. I don't get it. I would have thought by now making contact with a golf ball should be no problem. It shouldn't even be an issue. I have put in the practice.
Agh.. Idk. frustrated with yesterdays 9. I had 3 good drives. One of them cleared the 250 marker on the fairway on a par 4 and set me up for a nice PW shot. 2 putted it to make par but that's not the point =D
I don't know. anyone have an experience like this?
