Walk Up Music

Just something my buddies and I were discussing over a couple beers. If golf were like baseball where you got to pick your own walk up music when you come to the tee, what would your song be? I always joke that mine would be Coming Undone by Korn.

Theme song from "What's Happening?" TV show.

I once read that Bobby Jones, "the squire himself," once said that you should hear a song in your head to help establish a good rhythm.  Then my addled brain immediately thought of this and I can't stop.

"Sirius" by the Allen Parsons Project would be my first choice.

‘Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver’ by Primus. Of course.

Revolt into style.  Bill Nelson's Red Noise.

Britney Spears have songs that are very appropriate:

(You Drive Me) Crazy

[Hit Me] Baby One More Time

On a second thought, maybe the second one is bad omen...

When I think of walk up music it has to be where the opening riff of the song is instantly recognized, profound and high energy. So The Blue Danube would not work even though it is one of the most beautiful pieces ever written. So for classical pieces, Beethoven’s 5th intro or The William Tell Overture would work.

Same for Rock. It has to grab the listener. Lots of songs by AC/DC have great power intros with my two favs being Back in Black and Highway to Hell. When my iPod turns on in my car, it always starts with the first song, AC/DC’s Shoot to Thrill, because they are alphabetically first on the list and it was the first song loaded. So I may pick that one too. 
 

Rock has so many songs that have great power intros, their are too many to name.

Shoot To Thrill is one of my favorites by those guys. I think T.N.T. Would be another good one.

    • Are you paying attention to your sleep and nutrition? Those are two huge factors in recovery.
    • I'm with @Yukari Last week I started with double, birdie, double, and in my younger days, I would have given up right there. Now I know better. Picked up another birdie on the front 9 for a respecable 38, had 3bogeys on the back 9, but birdied the last hole for another 38. Never give up.
    • What are some proven strategies to recover if you have to play 18 holes of tournament golf each day for 2, 3 or even 4 days.?   Right now my weekly practice is as follows   Monday Off Tuesda Par 3 course focusing on distance control with irons and 40 minute putting session Wed Range Day focusing on odd numbered irons and driver.  Experimental shots, hooking, slicing on purpose.   Thursday 9 holes for score,  maybe a short game range session Friday Another short game session (putting chipping, pitching) Saturday AM 9 holes for score, Afternoon Range session practicing shots needed for Sunday Sunday AM Hot Tub soak, drive to the course to arrive 1hour before.  Warm up through bag with wedges, odd numbered irons and driver 18 holes   I'd like to be able to do 18 Saturday and Sunday but need some tips on how not to be so sore Sunday if I'm going to play 2 18s in a row.      
    • Played Saturday at one of the tougher courses (for me) in my area which plays as a Par 72, 70.3/124 - 6,245 yds.  Some highlights/lowlights.  First hole is a 490 y Par 5 - Hit my tee shot weak right and the put a 5w out leaving me 180 to a downhill green.   Hit a 5i clean and looked to be online but once it cleared the hill, I lost sight of it.  As I get closer to the green, my ball is sitting not even 3' from the hole....miracle shot.  For the 3rd consecutive round, I birdie the first hole.  Made bogeys on 2-5. Hole 6 - 143y Par 3 - had one of my best iron shots of the day.  2 putt par. Hole 8 - Par 4 that is about 230 to the water from the tee.  Always have played this with my 3w to land safely before the water hazard.  It may be time to switch to 5w or 4i as my tee shot went into the water.  Ended up with Double Bogey. Finished the front 9 with a 44 which is always excellent here. Back 9 started off terribly as I went +7 over three holes.  This includes a triple bogey on hole 12.  Tee shot left me ~ 165 to the green.  Flew over it and landed in this spongey type of moss on the back tree line.  Took me 3 freaking shots to get back on the green. Back 9 was not much to write home about....had back to back pars but that was it.  Came in on 48 44/48 - 92.....I will say, my tee shots, irons, and putter were all working.  Even with a 92, I must have easily lost 10-12 shots from just around the green.  Frustrating but it tells me what to focus on.  Stats 1 Birdie 3 Pars 9 Bogeys 5 Double + 4 GIR 35 Putts 1 Penalty Sunday, I played at my home course.  Front 9 was nothing special as I went out with a 45 and I then proceeded to light it up on the first half of the back 9.  I started out Par, Birdie, Par, Par putting me -1 after 4 holes and E after 5 holes.   I then had a disappointing finish of Double, Par, Bogey, Double.  Finished 45/41 - 86 for the lowest round of the year.   4 rounds in with scores of 89,87,92,86 so hopefully that is a sign of things to come.  I am feeling much more comfortable on most shots from a driver to a putter.  Just need to get the feel back for around the green and hopefully the scores/handicap will drop.  In those 4 rounds, I have 5 birdies.  In 2019, it took me 16 rounds to get 5 birdies.  Stats 1 Birdie 6 Pars 7 Bogeys 4 Double + 6 GIR 32 Putts 1 Penalty  
    • I will and try to get some swing video this weekend.  My daughter is letting me use her fancy phone stand and I will be able to get behind the line and face on.  I will even put my Zepp on and give you the data from it for that swing.  That is weather permitting, right now in Central Texas with weather can be iffy with rain and thunderstorms.  That, and it is getting hotter than Hades already.
