so ok i have a question for everyone. the last 2 rounds i have par'd out the firs 5 holes, then comes a triple bogey. has anyone else had this issue? i am thinking i am just getting over excited and speeding up my tempo, or else my body can only do good for so long and then gives in haha. but I'm thinking tempo. just curious if anyone has had this issue.

I'm with you, 



With that many GIR's, that's more than I normally hit and yet I would score 8-10 shots better, odd.

i had 41 putts that round :pound: 6 three putts… 1 three put was a par on a par 5, but still. I'm missing 5-10ft putts almost 90% of the time.

I guess it depends on what type of triple bogey we're talking about.  I suspect it's, by and large, full swing issues?  If not ... and you're just chili-dipping pitches and leaving balls in the bunker and three-putting, then, by all means, get to work on your short game.

 

But if it is the full swing then I think this has already been asked and answered.  You have flaws in your swing.  Sometimes your compensations and timing lines up well for a hole or two or 10, and other times it doesn't.  You falsely allow yourself to believe that the guy who makes the 5 pars in a row is the golfer that you are.  No big deal ... I do the same thing.  Every time I hit a pure shot, I think "well, that was easy ... I should be doing this every time."  But it's still not because I have a perfect swing.  If we want to improve, we have to be honest with ourselves.  Our swings are flawed and that is the main reason why we make bogeys, doubles and triples.  We need to improve the swing to start mitigating all of the damage.

 

I know it's not the answer you want to hear, but if you don't take the advice given to you by instructors, and practice it (hard and correctly) then you are forever going to be beating your head against the wall.

ya true. ln the 6th holes yesterday i bladed a 6 iron into the water short of the green (par 3) took my drop. pitched it and 3 putted. i guess i'll just take notes on my rounds and in a couple weeks review everything and check back on tips given here and use those tips to get it figured out

Taking notes is a good idea.  I use golfshot ... its a free app for the iphone ... and enter my score after the round.  It'll compile your stats and make it easier to see where you lose the most strokes.

 

And its pretty obvious from a few of your previous posts that you need to work on putting.  Seven 3-putts is ... umm ... not good. :-P

So after a bad hole does your whole round go straight downhill? A book I read "The Unstoppable Golfer" By Dr. Bob Rotella would aways say after a round to reflect on your good shots you have (not saying this helps)... but don't over think and good shots will come.

No. I would say that you reverted to the mean.

Yes. The good shots are the anomalies when your handicap is north of single digits.

And forever blaming stuff like "tempo" for your poor golf swing.

The penny might drop eventually..... 

 

Kyle, I really think you need to take a step back and re-evaluate. 

You are getting plenty of hints and tips from people who you should be taking advice from (not me), but I have yet to see you follow through with any intent on a good tip you have received from them, it seems you are jumping from one round to another and looking for the magic, quick fix, cure. 

 

You seem like a decent guy, but can you not see that some people, who you really would benefit from you listening to are losing/have lost patience. 

It's probably down to over enthusiasm (and that is kinda understandable) on your part, but it's time to slow down and get back to basics! (that time was probably 2 weeks ago to be fair)

 

You are destined to remain at the same level for a long time if you keep looking for a quick fix after every round.

no it doesn't go straight downhill. it doesn't come back fully tho. i start getting nervous over putts when they are for birdies and pars after a bad hole

ya i tend to be very optimistic at times and @mvmac gave me advice to keep my head still and that helped me a lot with consistency. @iacas mention and sent me a thread on deeper hands. I'm trying that with my drive a lot because my normal AoA is so steep with my new shaft the ball flight is way low. so i've been working on deeper hands to help get higher ball flight and it has been working. those are the 2 tips that have helped me immediately that i am also pursuing to get better with. i think those will be what i focus on and then as i get consistent with those i'll start working on other improvements. i don't understand why someone would lose patience with me though. i come on here to bounce ideas off people. i take some tips and they help me out. i do have more than one issue with my swing, but i know i'll get overwhelmed with focusing on too much. i already have a tendency to do this =/

So here is what i will be focusing on for the month of February

 

Distance Control (putting)

Head Still

Deeper Hands (with driver)

I completely get where you are coming from... I have a very similar personality, but seriously....SLOW DOWN MAN 

In fact, reading this thread and your swing thread has helped me so much....in the sense that when I read them I say, "he's a bit like you, he's nut's, try not to be like him" 

Harsh, but true. 

 

There are plenty of golfing emails that you can subscribe to, they'll send you a different "tip" each day... maybe you should sign up to several of them if you want to select some tips and see if they help you or not.....

 

Or maybe you could listen to the experts.... nah, that's not a quick enough fix. 

 

The concept of this thread is symbolic of your problems....too much, too soon, the quick route is the only route. 

 

Sorry man, you're a nice guy but I'm out. 

 

Edit:

Just seeing your post above.... that's what a lot of people want to see 

 

I'm back in again :dance: 

And I genuinely would be happy to see big improvements.

The 3-putts don't quite tell all the story, although the 87 is better, the over 100 at times is perplexing as someone who can hit 9 of 18 greens and then can shoot a 100. Not trying to be trite, but it is just odd.

Kyle- what ephinay did your have that you wanted to be a scratch golfer? And why did you think you could make it? Just curious? I'll be fifty this year, and wish I had the time and energy to get that low again.

How? You can't just "try" something. Especially just "keeping your head steady" (nobody says "still") and you can't just "try" deeper hands.

Deeper hands will likely help with that, but that's not the main reason why I recommended that to you. Since this isn't your My Swing thread, I'm trying to keep this related more to the "operation" you built here - and you still aren't really working on anything. "Trying" stuff without knowing HOW to do it is going to get you nowhere.

 

Also, if I was wagering, I'd imagine your swing looks almost identical to what it did a few months ago.

I do. I'll admit to having lost patience a few times (for a few days), particularly when you went off about my posts being "rude" and suggested I put myself in the Penalty Box.

 

You get good advice - advice people often pay to get - and you blow it off by constantly hopping from tip to tip.

I'm going to practice lag putting so that I don't leave myself more than 3 feet away to eliminate 3 putts

The feeling I get from trying to keep my head still has helped me make better contact and I have been hitting it better so I think it's helping

I'm trying deeper hands on my driver because it helps my ball flight with the driver and it's easier to learn when teed up so I wanna get the feeling down then transfer the movement over to my iron game
