Evil Club of Hate

Evil club of hate.... I have one, do you? For me it is my fairway. It hates me. Sometimes it acts like it is my best friend, other times not so much. At times it hits sweet and true, and says 'who loves you baby?'. The next time out it shows me the middle finger.... <sigh>

Lately, it seems like every club in my bag …  🥵
But hey, it's only March. By the end of April, they will all be showing a lot of LUV … :whistle:

Right now it's my 5 iron since I only hit it one yard farther than my 6 iron.

Hybrid, hands down. It goes the right distance, but in every direction imaginable. Most of the time my 3 iron or 4W is a much safer bet.

My driver! I don't understand, I go to the range and hit it well but when I play on grass, like I did yesterday, it fails me. Had to resort to my 3W for most of the game. Putting also suffered but that is because of lack of playing lately. But it was good to get out.

SW or LW pitch shots, the feel shots.  I developed numbness and no feel in my left hand and arm.  It is like I have the yips or something.  I have no idea where the clubface is and my brain freaks out.  I truly suck.  Horrible.

I played a around today. I decided to give my 'Evil club of hate' a try.  It was going really well.  She/He/It was playing nice with me.... UNTIL it came down to a point where I might break a personal record..... You fool, you fool, you silly fool..... SHOULD have known better...

Pitching wedge, always the pitching wedge. I can’t even begin to count how many extra shots that satan possessed  club has cost me.

    • A 56 degree wedge is normally considered a sand wedge. Lob wedges are typically 58+ degrees. 56 degree wedges are quite a bit easier to hit than the typical 60 degree lob wedge. When I mentioned a "gap wedge", they are typically 50-54 degrees depending on the full wedge set up of a player. For example, I carry a 47 degree PW from my set, and then 52 (GW), 56 (SW), 60 (LW) from Titleist/Vokey (brand isn't that important though).
    • By Associated Press, Wire Service Content May 23, 2020, at 3:22 PM Western Montana Virus Outbreak Tied to Luxury Golf Club An outbreak of COVID-19 in western Montana is tied to an exclusive golf and country club developed by financial executive Charles Schwab. - - - - - -KATU News requested and received records from Portland's Parks & Recreation Department and discovered that from March 1 through April 6, 2019, there were 23,089 rounds of golf played at its five municipal courses. During that same time period this year, from March 1 through April 6, 2020, Portland Parks Golf saw an increase of 15% in golf rounds - 26,554 rounds of golf were played as the coronavirus outbreak spread in the Pacific Northwest. Portland golfers play through coronavirus pandemic at city courses Golfers are still swinging away at Portland's five city-owned and operated courses during the coronavirus pandemic, with more rounds being played compared to this time period last year, even as orders from the governor...
    • Torrey allows them and play seemed to speed up during a period when riding carts were not allowed. Torrey South in particular with elevated greens and a lot of green side bunkers, I can see the 2 - 3 foot area off and around the edge of the greens getting extra wear from all the push/pull cart trafic.  With a push cart and the course setup all the walkers with push carts are funneled into these small pathways as they keep the carts off the green and avoid slowing play down by making trips back to their carts if they leave them back at the fairway.  It's pretty much okay as the Kikuyu grass is so tough, otherwise it would be a problem. They should just allow and encourage players to just walk the carts right onto the green.
    • And how about a massive mower that is on the green everyday.    I don’t drive my push cart over the green, but I do drive it over tee boxes if they are in my way. The only reason is that a lot of them are battery driven and they might spin out on the green doing some damage that way if the user is not careful.  Yes they still have them and charge some for them. But they are crap and most of the people have their own and many are battery driven. 
    • Hello to everyone, new poster here.  Wanted to share my thoughts about this method...maybe not just this method, but the overall effect of an open stance on early extension. I'm 57, 5 hncp, rather thick chested and inflexible, and have struggled with early extension and flipping for many years.  Really, I'm a 10 hncp ballstriker and a 2 inside 25 yards. I have watched a few "senior" themed instruction videos to address EE, and they're almost all some theme of  - closed stance, get a deep shoulder turn, swing out to the right, and accept early extension.  None of this worked for me...my driver especially was wildly inconsistent. So, opening my stance and swinging out instantly improved my ballstriking through the bag.  Not really sure why, but I believe a closed stance facilitates EE - if I close up, it's not difficult to straighten my back, be on my toes, and stay balanced.  Moving the left foot back with the butt moving forward results in a totally unbalanced (falling forward) position which can't be maintained, so the body doesn't do it (EE). Yes, my backswing is shorter, but I'm making better strikes and haven't lost distance.   Does this make any sense?
