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.

    • Day 34 (30 Jul 21) - Played 18 today.  Worked on clubbing up on the approaches with a 3/4 swing.  It has helped with getting the ball onto / near the green.  Had some great shots into the greens and even when not on the green, being confident to bump and run with an 8i or pitch with the 54wedge.    
    • Back to the "regular" course today - rough greens and all.  Shot 94 (45 /49).   Played the back nine first with the first three holes (all par 4's) being double bogies.   I knew this was going to be an interesting day for sure.  Good thing - no triples today.  Too many doubles though with a total of six and only one par.  These greens are tough to play as they are either real sparse on good grass or the grass is like putting on cut pile (you have to really stroke through the ball to get the roll).  It calls for one to pin hunt to keep the putter distances as short as possible.  
    • Agreed. This is hard to watch and really boring. Commercials every 2 minutes (thanks, DVR and ff!) Perhaps the last day will be worth watching, with the gold on the line. I would not be surprised if some guy you never heard of takes a medal.  
    • I think it’s even worse than what you describe.   I live in an area where people are cheering that there will be no mask mandates and they like to rub it in peoples faces.   They are literally trying to own people who are taking it seriously.   I mean, people are just disgusting.  I can’t even muster anything in me to feel remotely sorry for people like that, nor have anything to do with them.   I’m sure there were lots of people in generations past who took the easy way out and did the wrong things in prior pandemics and war times, but that’s not terribly easy to find in history books.  Books will be written about how people not only killed themselves, but in their twisted belief that they are “protecting their freedoms” they are stripping them away from others.      I have 2 kids under the age of twelve.   With Delta allowed to become dominant because “people want to live their best life” (at others expense), they now are scared to go back to school (and the idiot system won’t do remote learning this year), won’t be able to travel and see their grandparents* , and can do less than 3 months ago.   Nice job folks.   * their grandparents are total a-holes though, so I won’t shed a tear.
    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
