Range day: "Yeah, my elbow does hurt a bit. Maybe hitting five buckets will make it feel better?"

Course day: "Man, this is a long hole. I better swing out of my friggin' shoes on this drive!"



Do your worst...

Good thread idea.

For me... it's always the same:

"This hole is only 370. 3 Wood will leave you a 7 iron. Yeah, but Driver will leave me a 9 iron."

I always hit the driver... and almost never well.

I'm an idiot.

Me: "My leg feels fine, I'm going to go hit a small bucket."
---Later---
Them: "Small or large?"
Me: "Um... large."
---Later---
"Oh man, my leg hurts, one more..."
"Maybe just one more..."
"Ah, one more won't kill me..."
---Later---
"Damn, my leg really hurts."

Wake up the next day, repeat.

"yeah..i can hit this 4iron over that tree 10 feet in front of me..."

I could pitch one out to the 150 . . . or I could sling a big hook one around the trees with a 3 iron Now how did that Faldo tip go . . . ?

"Hey, if Tiger can do it..."

"Trees are 90 percent air..."

"Don't leave it short, don't leave it short, don't leave it short..."

"8-iron is plenty of club to carry that bunker..."

Good thread, Stretch!

Walks up to the ball after my drive on a par 5. Hit it about 280... looks over at my playing partner and say... "Man, I think I can make it to the flag with this next shot."

He says, "Nah... play it safe and leave yourself a simple chip shot."

I look back and say, "forget playing safe... Im gonna crush it."

SWING... CRACK!! Hello tree (tried to hit the ball 800 yards and sliced it bad)

Look over and say, "toss me another ball" as he just chuckles and throws me a ball.

I then, switch clubs and hit a beauty down the middle of the fairway.

Look at him and say, "HA... thanks alot".

Standing over ball

...and then things go bad.

This is my worst one. I don't know why I can't get myself to step off. I always try to adjust midswing and that never works.

'its in the hole..its in the hole...'....'nope, in the rough past the green'

'if i can only just punch it out to the 100 i can knock it within 15 feet to save bogey/par...'

...and then things go bad.

Last round I actually stepped away from a 10 foot putt mid-backswing because it didn't feel right. I was really proud of myself, and ended up making the putt after re-grouping.

How bout - I'll be able to find that one! (after it veers off into the woods)

"Don't ... ."

It's a magnet for me. I'll tell myself, don't let it leak, set up for a slight draw. And pow, there it goes right. But the opposite seems true, too. Water on the left, so I tell myself, don't let it draw. And pow, my ball is looking like a dead duck.

    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
