Anyways, that didn't feel as bad as 4-putting for bogey. Which I've done twice. FML.

I’ve rolled outta off relatively flat greens before. That kind of sucks, too.

If I only could control it, and use it for good, I could end evil on this Earth.

I’m trying to come up with a scenario where I’d even want to hit a hook with a PW. Much easier to hook a lower lofted club should the need arise.

Ask Bubba Watson! 😀

When I’m in the middle of my almost inevitable stretch of holes where nothing works. Almost every time I play I will have “that” set of holes where I can’t get out of my own head after a terrible shot and I’ll ruin a decent round playing 3 holes in 6 or 7 over. Ugh.

A hook wouldn’t have helped you nor I in that situation 😉

What do you mean?

It used to be  a penalty shot before the rule changes that came in at the beginning of 2019  (or even 2 if I remember correctly).

Being at the back half of the course and realizing that you're going to have a case of diarrhea.    

Can´t relate more.

If I was aiming for the tree in the gap across the fairway, my hook would send me back to the tee, unintentionally.😝

Half way through the bucket, on the range, that no matter how much you practice, your game is as good as it gets, with little improvement.

 

However, I keep trying...………...

Making a par on hole #1, it is all down hill after that....

For me, the worst feeling is a bad drive on the first tee. The first hole on my home course is a 400 yard par 4, about 110 feet uphill, and strongly sloped left to right for the first 300 yards. When I hit a bad drive on this hole, it almost guarantees a double or worse. Not a great way to start a round.

My worst feeling in golf is bombing a drive on a par 5, and making the group behind wait, while I wait for the green to clear. Then, I totally blow the approach! I'd like to be able to dive into the ground! I can just imagine what the group on the tee behind me is saying!

Driving home after a shooting a 92 while looking for my swing from hole 1 to hole 18. Typically I find and self correct midway through the round but some days are a complete write off. I am sure we all have experienced it. It feels bleak. It feels like you went to your best friend's birthday all geeked up with the best gift ever and he ignores you the entire afternoon for no good reason.

Of course, it doesn't last and I have always bounced back as it's just golf and not a serious life issue.

Mine is the meltdown I inevitably have on a hole that is longer than about 350 yards. If I can't be at least close to the green in two I fall right off the cliff.

Playing foursomes in an important match and down the stretch hitting a terrible shot.  You never apologize to your partner but inside one just cringes at what you have left your partner to deal with.

i still remember the last day of the 2017 Newport Cup.  The tie breaker involved the opposing match requiring our match to re-play a hole alternate shot.  Fortunately, I was playing with @jsgolfer, who hit a brilliant 200 yard shot to the par 3 17th.  All I had to do was roll an uphill 15 footer to 2 feet.  Yes, I left it 4 feet short and wanted to crawl into a hole for doing that to my teammate.  He made the putt and saved me from a lifetime of nightmares.😉

For me it has to be bombing a drive off the tee only to fat it 20 yards with your 2nd shot!. Normally happens after a playing partner declares your drive was "Shot of the day". :pound:

Yes, that match was a blast.  You couldn't have left me with an easier putt -  4 feet straight up the hill.   :beer:

    • Does it have to be beating them?  A very fond memory of mine, from about two years into my time playing golf, was playing with a much better player and matching his score on three holes (two pars and a birdie).  I am 100% certain he beat my scores on the remaining holes.  Just the same, the (much much much) better player was super encouraging to me the whole day, but I particularly remember him complimenting those three.  
    • Day 46.  If today is Tuesday, this must be Belgium speed sticks day.  Protocol one in my back yard this evening.  Green at the end was 113, a new record.  Although it occurs to me, I'm supposed to continuously set new personal bests. 
    • So with it being the offseason still, I find myself reading and watching a lot of topics on the sport. Lately i came across Scott Fawcett and his strategy for teebox decisions. YouTube has a few videos of his but basically, for people who drive it over 270 pretty consistently, gameplanning should consider any trouble that is within a 70 yard dispersion. Now I already have gamegolf so i can see some dispersion patterns but I obviously dont tag the shots where I completely lose a ball so data is missing. I decided to go to a sim bay using a GCQuad and did a 15 shot driver test. In the end I averaged 268 off the tee in total distance. However off those 15 shots....3 were massive misses of 45, 52, and 60 yards offline. In real life at my home course and most trees courses I play those are lost balls with bad penalties applied. They would only be slightly salvageable at a course with adjacent fairways really. I would say when you look at my gamegolf rounds, the GCQuad result of 3/15 being lost/OB is accurate. So it made me start wondering as someone who has read LSW and Every Stroke Counts and understands advancing the ball far but safely.....how wide of dispersion is considered unusable for a driver? Until my swing improved would I be better off statistically going down to my 16* mini driver or just 21* hybrid? ( next time I do the simulator I was going to do dispersion tests for those)
    • While it may seem like a good idea, you can't just "factory reset" your swing. Better to just focus on a priority and make that better. Rather than trying to achieve a certain kind of swing, just improve on what you currently have.
    • OK -  let me make one final post on this as this horse is well and truly beaten. Just so that I'm fully clear on where you stand in the context of this particular discussion.  Please indulge me. 1. What they DID matters. 2. Why we THINK they did it doesn't matter. 3. Your (and my) opinion of what they did or why they did it is irrelevant 4. The only relevant discussion is the penalty for the infringement. 5. A person's opinion of the character any of the people under discussion has nothing to do with the thread. 6. Anything beyond that is essentially moot. Is that a fair summation?
