About a year and half ago I played at Mount Woodson. It's a par 70 with an executive feel, set amongst finger canyons just outside of San Diego. The cart path is more like a roller coaster ride that comes complete with speed bumps and long wooden winding bridges that deliver you to the next tee. I lost 16 balls.

Probably lost 6 or 7 the first time I played, wouldn't be more than 5 since. I haven't played any courses with a lot of water or any canyons that balls might get lost in though. These days I only usually have 4 or 5 balls in my bag so I'd have to give up after that.

First time playing a Palmer course across the street from where I work, with the boss, I could not hit my driver to save my life and took 13 penalties; all lost balls if I remember correctly. I finally starting hitting straight on 16. If it wasn't for the penalties I would have scored to my handicap. oh well.

We all lost many when we first took up the game.



I played last Tuesday with my father and lost 3 balls during the round....all on the same water hazard!!!!!

I hit a large drive on a par 4....went through the fairway and into the hazard. Took a drop and stiffed a nine iron to three feet and made the putt.

Next hole was a par 3 that skirted the same hazard. There was a front pin placement that tempted me....wind was back into my face. I couldn't resist to urge to hit a high iron into the wind and let drop dead on the front pin. All was looking grand unitl it hit the bank and sucked back into the hazard. My dumb arse tees up another and tries again.....same stick.....same result.


We got a few laughs outa that.

3 brand new Bridgestone B330 RX balls lost in two holes. Plus a very large score that helped him whip me by 11 strokes.

I think the most Ive lost is like 10 balls in a round...... Im getting better and that count is down to like 4 or 5... I play courses with lots of water though.. and tight fairways..

I went with a guy a few weeks ago, no lie he lost like 30 balls.... broke a club that day too, I havent called him since..

With your handicap?? Ouch.

The most I lost, after dropping my handicap to below 15, was 5 in a single round. Lost my swing, lost 5 balls, and lost my sanity.

a friend of mine that i hadn't got a chance to play golf with in literally years called me up and declared, by god, he was going to play some golf, he'd been wanting to and wanting to for months, and he was REALLY gonna do it, regardless of if his wife was pissed at him for it.

four holes in, she calls him bitching him out. he slinks off behind a tree and talks for another minute or so, comes back with a real hang-dog look on his face and says he needs to head out. i shook my head and told him "you may've only lost two balls today, but they were the important ones."

    • Trip to Oregon was no good, hit the driver terrible so I was basically scrambling every hole. Slowly working my way through my left misses off the tee. Mostly mechanics but also part mental with trusting it on the course. Can't reproduce the miss on the range. Finished one shot out of playoff for US Mid Am and US FourBall qualifiers.  Got a decent lead in our points race. Noticed that as I've been trying to improve rib cage and hip depth that the right ankle and foot would get unstable. Asked my trainer/pt about it and this is what he recommended. He just got certified in a foot program. Fingers crossed but for the first time I can really feel myself winding up the upper torso over a solid lower body. But doing it athletically not just faking it by not moving stuff around. It's the most rib cage rotation I've had going back without trying to force it. I like that I’m doing more work at the joint and that the joint is inside my right ankle at 4. I think the key for me with this foot tripod thing is to keep the right knee over the foot, not letting it rotate towards the middle of my stance. I can feel the "spiraling" effect. Basically my feet are more supinated with high arches. So when I go into my backswing the foot supinates incorrectly losing the big toe joint. Ideally you would want to "build" more of an arch of the foot on the backswing and use that "ramp" on the downswing. This would be another way of explaining it. If the arch of the foot collapses you you access to the deep front line. I just did a video for an instructor about how this relates to hip rotation (not pelvis rotation). He promotes himself as a biomechanics expert and teaches many pros lol  
    • Day 211.  Played 18 today, and really came to life in the second nine.  3 pars, bogey, 3 pars, closed out with two bogeys.   Shot a 39 for the second nine, something I'm not sure I've done at that course before (Hansen Dam).  I've had days where I hit a bunch of GIRs on that second nine, one day it was 7 GIR + 2 near, but I think I shot 40 or 41 on the second nine that day. 
    • And Chamblee said Poulter is the worst ball striker "By a lot" of all the players and Poulter won his singles match by 3 holes LOL...   Best result of the European players and most of the USA players, guess that's what you call an anomaly. Unbelievable how stupid that statement was, the Postman did himself proud....

    • I think I’m playing my wedges too far forward in my stance. That could explain the occasional fat shots and why I tend to hit the ball high off the face out of the rough.
