It Was the Pants…

I figured out why I was driving the ball so wall last week. I know most of you will think I'm crazy, but it had to be the pants. Every time I wear that pair of pants on the golf course, I drive the ball great. Now I need to figure out which shirt helps my iron shots. Socks might be the key to short game and underwear the key to putting. I think I am on to something here...

I wouldn't be too hasty.  It could be that the golf ball didn't recognize you in that particular outfit.  Have you considered wearing dark glasses or disguising your voice?

I don't think so. I was playing with new golf balls that didn't even know me. 🤣

Ha, ha, ha!

Nice to see I am not the only one who attributes success on the course with factors any sane person would consider irrelevant.

I know, right? Some people just don't understand the power of pants. I think they made a movie about traveling pants or something.

We're good as long as you don't post pics!   I'm picturing John Daly pants.  

They were just khakis, just like the ones worn by Jake, at State Farm. 😁

Nice.. ha ha. Post pics or it didn't happen. 😊

This is a welcome tongue-in-cheek 'change of pants'..ha ha. i.e. attributing success to something external.

Most folks attribute only failure to something other than themselves... Grip worn out, no beverage cart on the course that day, shaft has  needed an upgrade since the 'swing change', sun coming in from the south that day, broken ankles.. yeah, all kinds of perfectly acceptable 'reasons'... lol! 

People be funny even if they don't be joking.

I've played this stupid game long enough to know that driving the ball that long and straight had little to do with anything I do. Some days the golf gods smile on you. Other days they 💩on you. 😉

    • I stand just far enough away from the net that I’m not going to hit the frame in the follow through with the club. The ball shouldn’t ricochet back towards you with that net. The bigger problem is the wind likes to knock it down.
    • I will never stand within six feet of the net. Took a hard ricochet standing too close few years ago. Ball hit me on the nose bridge squarely making me pass out for a minute. Just saying...
    • Fortunately my wife doesn't care how much I golf. We are both in our mid 30s.  She doesn't play but loves tagging along and driving the cart.  Shes there to drink a few cocktails, look for balls in the woods with a retriever and make fun of my game.  We even went on a cruise to Bermuda this summer and let me play at Port Royal while she tagged along as well.    Im off weekends and she works 95% of weekends so those are wide open for me
    • Keep swinging in a simulator in the winter to stay consistent. That's a big if being I plow snow for the town and can be called into work at any second My last round last week outside, back 9 hit 5 of 9 GIR.   Amazing how much smoother a swing is when you're constantly playing.   Im still a 18ish handicap, short game betrays me from time to time.  Wish there was a better way in winter to improve the short game.  I have an indoor putting mat and chipping net with soft balls, works good for ball striking I guess
    • Right now I have a set of One Length Cobra F8s.   I really thought about getting the new Cobra LTDx One Lengths.   The PW of the F8 is 44*.   However the LTDx is 41.5*.   The 5i of the F8 is 22.5*.  The LTDx is 20.5*.    My question is, there will be a bigger gap between a new PW and my standard length 49* AW (yea a 44 to 49 is a solid gap as well but its pretty well gapped yardage wise).   And my current 4h will basically be the same loft as a new 5i.   Will it be a waste of time getting new irons without buying a complete new set of wedges.  Or is technology so far advanced in the shafts that the lofts don't mean as much comparing new and old irons.
