Well its fair to say im in a slump now..... I just cant seem to get anything going.... i mean at all.... like the lowest iv shot in a tourney in te past 2-3 months is 75.... at the beginning of the year i was averaging around 72-73...now im lucky to break 77..... I cant even play normally anymore...it is ridiculously frustrating... ill play mediorcish for around 16 or 17 holes(even-+2ish) and then i make a tripple or wuad out of nowhere..... Iv practiced my eyes out and to no avail...i still SUCK... I cant even hit the ball anymore... chipping is ok...and putting is just frustrating...I have hit countless balls and i cant get it back together...i used to be a great ballstriker(like 15-17 GIR average) and now im lucky to hit 11 GIR....Im soooo frustrated...I mean one day i want to make it on tour and iv tried so hard to get out of this but its frustrating and very discouraging... how have you guy gotten out of this stuff??? HELP PLEASE......

The standard suggestion, take a lesson from someone you trust. Most likely it is something very minor you are doing. I am currently working to break through into the 70's consistently so I have been taking mini lessons with our club pro to put into play the little tweaks here and there that I need. Once I get the tweak or two down I go back to get a couple more, a little at a time. In my talks with him actually earlier today, he said the lower handicap players when they go into a funk, it is usually something very minor they are doing that they just don't see.

If you can't do that, try recording your swing, you might be able to spot it yourself.

You know you're a good player.  So obviously take this with a grain of salt

Just take a week break clear your head.

Usually I find after a break I swing really pure, I'm not as tight and all those really small little bad habits I start doing I forgot them.. but the main foundations of the golf swing remain.  Maybe that will help.  If not definitely get lessons lol

    • I think we are all a bit worried about David in FL.  David, if you're reading this please drop in to say "All is good."
    • The only reason why it wasn't 20+ points for US was Rahm. Go look at SG stats for these teams, then come back and tell me how close they are in skill. Obviously the EU team has talent, but lots of it is waning (I include Rory in this as I don't think we will ever see him in the top 10 on OWGR ever again). Older players have more experience, but are passed their prime when it comes to skill level. The EU team could have definitely played worse. The US team played well, but JT, Spieth and Berger were less than good IMO. If those guys are playing up to their normal standards it could have been worse for EU. This x1000. I don't think Rory will ever play like he used to, and in 2 years he could be in Fowler territory. I know RF was never at that high of a peak, but Rory's current trajectory looks bleak to me. Hovland and Hatton are the only others in the top 20 (owgr) besides Rahm, and while I suspect they will stay there, I don't see any other EU players likely to get in. Fleetwood and Lowry would be the closest or best shots to do it (Fitzpatrick is higher ranked but I don't think that giving up that much off the tee will get him higher on owgr), but I don't have particularly high hopes for either of them, although I like both of them.
    • Yeah, wind was coming strong from left to right and once it got above the tree line it moved over the sand trap and towards that single tree.  So my best estimate was somewhere between those two lines.  The group I was with made me re-tee since they were trying to beat me so I did since I didn't know the rule.  Now I know so that won't happen again.  I won anyway so all good.
