That's why I buy used now. This year I bought 7 dozen delivered for less than the price it would have cost me for 2 dozen new.

For me it is usually at least one of these three things...

1) Missing greens with an 8 iron of less in my hand

2) Not being able to knock down putts

3) Not being able to get off the tee or not being able to adjust my swing to get off the tee

This morning, it was all three things for me. I couldn't seem to do anything right and when I got to about 14 or 15 I was honestly ready to snap every one of my clubs in half and yell the "F Word" as loud as I could haha. For the past probably 5 or 6 days my game has been absolute garbage. Usually if I can't get off the tee I can usually make an adjustment and get my swing into form by the back nine and be able to preserve my round and come away with a decent score. But these past few days have really gotten me down. I went to the range today after playing and I'm going tomorrow morning before I play so hopefully I can get my swing into midseason form with golf matches and tournaments starting next week.

When strokes 1-8 go like this:

1. Straight - 200ish yards.

2. Top - 10 feet

3. Fade - 170 yards

4. Fat - 40 yards

5. Chip that goes 2 feet due to catching the grass/ground behind the ball

6. Chip onto the green

7. Misread the green and aim 2 feet right of the hole then have the ball go straight

8. Make 3' putt for a welcome end to the misery of that hole.

I still have never gotten a birdie, this past weekend I hit a shot on a par 3 maybe 3-4 feet away and ended up 3 putting.... VERY disappointed.  I ended up losing by 1 shot.

It's precisely why I buy 10 dozen balls at a time from KnetGolf.  The balls are virtually brand new and cost me about 80 cents per ball depending on what I choose.  Makes it much less painful to lose 6 balls per game compared to paying $1.50-2 per ball new, LOL.

What frustrates me the most is topping the ball.  Lipping a putt is a close second.

Most disappointing moment for me ever was when I was 17 years old and it was my first round after getting mono and I was 145 yards out on the first hole and i went to hit my 52* wedge like usual and i came up about 40 yards short, then repeatedly being 40 yards short with every iron since that day

I dont know if I would call it a "moment in golf", but...

I have managed to find myself in "life", and often times I will go months without playing.  When things smooth out and I'm able to get back into it, its realizing how far I've regressed during the layoff.  Having some simple swing flaw creep back in, and allowing that to damage the few times I get to play.  Almost makes me want to stay away until I can get back into the game with some regularity.

Golf for me is like that old highschool girlfriend that you think you still might have a shot at 20 years later...I love seeing her, but I hate seeing her.

This happened to me this Saturday:

I was in the middle of the fairway and I hit a 3/4 seven iron right at the hole.  I thought it was going to be perfect and it ended up dropping completely short of the green and rolled down into a tiny water hazard I didn't even know was there (I know I should've, but it was raining and I was not paying as much attention as I should have).  It was frustrating because it felt like one of my best shots of the day, but it actually caused a double bogey.

hitting a hook when your trying to cut it on a dogleg right, my home course has about 3 doglegs right and my natural swing is a draw and my miss is a hook, my rounds hang on these 3 doglegs lol

I could easily make a top 10 list:

1) Spending almost 6 weeks changing swing planes and paths to fight a draw only to realize the problem was setup.

2) Watching a hit golf ball bounce, roll, and stop only to not find it when you walk to that area.

3) Taking two great practice swings on a chip, completely blow the actual shot.

4) Leaving a dead-center putt short.

5) Make bogey or worse when you're less than 150 yds in the middle of the fairway.

6) Overswinging and hitting a poor drive on a downwind par 5.

7) Follow up a birdie with a double (I'm famous for it)

8) Take one wedge for a chip shot, realize it's not the right club for the shot, hit it anyway because I'm too lazy to go back for another one.

9) Execute a 3/4 swing with a club, pure the shot and watch the ball sail over the green.

10) Take an uber-aggressive line on a putt and hit it 6+ feet by the hole.

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
