I've managed to groove a pretty useful swing this year.  Feel is consistent, nice 'n easy with perfectly acceptable distance... it's a swing that could readily carry me to bogey golf and beyond.  Looking at my last handful of scores, where I'm losing strokes is VERY obvious:

Off the Tee.

On the Green.

Obviously, it makes no sense whatsoever that I can hit a pretty mid-iron draw into the green while having all sorts of trouble with that same iron off a tee.  Push out of bounds, pull hook screamer into the lake, tops, fats.  Utterly ridiculous off the tee.  Can't make bogeys when you're hitting 3 or 5 off the tee.

Same deal with putting.  Lag a 30' putt to 2 feet, then miss the two footer.  Turn a six foot putt into another six foot putt the other direction.  It's horrifyingly bad -- Though the practice green can make me look like I know what I'm doing.  Lousy putting makes that pretty pitch/approach shot utterly wasted.

I'm coming to the conclusion that it has to be mental.  Some of it's just inexperience, I'm sure, but there is no way I should -so- consistently lose my swing on the tee and not on the fairway.

What have ya'll done to get over a psychological hump?
