When all else fails, shorten up that backswing.

If that doesn't work, drink heavily.

I had about the worst day ever last weekend ... missing every single fairway by mere feet, forcing myself to overswing and chop out of 4" high brutal rough.     Totally takes the fun out of it.      Short game was the worst though - shanked the majority of my chip shots (never shank my irons) - I do this regularly, by far the most frustrating thing that has crept into my game lately - tried to correct it, but no success yet.     Putting atrocious.      I would chalk it up to just a bad day, but there's been more bad than good lately ...

Don't ya love it? I've been playing like crap also, the past two weekends. My short game went to hell in a handbasket.

Just prior to this, I thought my game was coming together, with some minor swing changes. And in an instant, everything goes to hell.

Man this game is hard....

Carpe, didn't you start a thread about pullhooking recently? Sounds like you're pretty much at the bottom, so there's nowhere to go but up. Just keep working and don't quit (actually, taking a week or two off could help)

I can relate because I'm just emerging from a 2 month long pullhook battle. I really had to fight hard this time. Made some major adjustments to my swing that were hard to get used to. I weakened up my left hand grip. I dramatically raised my plane - my hands are about the same height as the top of my head at the top. And, I'm firing my hips so it almost feels like I'm spinning out (but I'm really not), and really focusing on keeping my weight forward. The last few rounds I have been making great contact hitting baby draws and I only pulled a few here and there.

As we all know, this game is one of constant adjustments. You're never in a steady state. It's just that sometimes the adjustments are bigger and tougher than others.

LOL.  I thought the golf gods were just mad at me this past weekend.  I'm glad to see that I wasn't being singled out.

One of my most indelible memories from days of yore (does anyone really say that?) was coming into pro shop and seeing the pro who hailed from Liverpool (this is in Virginia, mind you).  I commented.. "I just shot the worst round of my life..."..  He deadpanned... "No you haven't..." and calmly went on with his business.    He, of course, was right.  May you rest in peace, you old curmudgeon...

you think that's bad. Try shooting like a f*ckin' 126 in a tourney. *in dramatic voice* I am nothing.

Just smile....slow it down.....sing a song in your backswing (or whistle......it helps you breathe throughout your swing so you arent so "tight") and enjoy the rest of the day.  Beat yourself up on the driving range...not the course.

It happens. I never gamble on the course but my buddy and I did have a bet last weekend and I went out and shite my pants all over the course and shot my worst round in a long time. I lost the bet and now have to do something I shudder to think about the next time we play.

I don't ever play golf without gambling...maybe it is just my club but my regular 4-some always several bets / games going and everytime i have been paired as single or twosome with others...there are still always bets going. nothing crazy 5 or 10 dollar 3-ways with automatics, buck maybe 2 for skins. if you lose more than 50 bucks you had a really bad round.

    • 2/27 - Mirror work at the gym. Focused on float load feel at transition.
    • And the ankle is on the circumference of that circle, or really even a little outside of it, not within it. So why would you be making a radius around the ankle?   Again, you shouldn't rotate around the ankle, you should rotate away from it. So even if you rotated parallel to the ground, then the basic geometry says the distance between the ankle and hip must still increase. To keep that distance the same would just about require rotating on an incline that is tilted in the wrong direction. It's just hard to imagine what the swing you are describing looks like. Sway so bad you really do end up centered over the trail ankle, followed by a massive reverse pivot?       
    • I'd estimate it's in the 40-50 course range, mostly in the Carolinas.  Some of my favorites have been: Caledonia- Pawleys Island, SC Thornblade- Greenville, SC Stono Ferry- Charleston, SC Rocky River- Concord, NC The Walker Course- Clemson, SC  
    • Just finished a big (multiple week) job on my truck and I wanted to point something out to anybody willing to read this. I sometimes get crap from people (mostly co-workers and stuff) about "how can you afford this/that, you must make the big bucks." No. I would have to say the #1 reason my wife and I have as much money in the bank as we do is these top 3 reasons: 1. We don't have kids (lol, that was an easy/obvious one) 2. We don't blow money on big $100+ drinking nights out or fancy restaurants even though we can afford to do so. We enjoy the little things and we are happy to have a nest egg to keep our stress levels lower 3. I do a lot of DIY, including with our vehicles. And it's the vehicles that pays off BIG TIME. Case in point: My truck is old but I still love it. But it had creaking and wobbly sounds that were tough to diagnose. Not a single mechanic I brought it to could properly diagnose it (by a LONG shot). So obviously they all recommended to start replacing the typical suspects and see which one ends up fixing it: wheel bearings, front rotors and pads, ball joints, sway bar bushings, tie rod and bushing, sway bar end links, control arm bushings (I ended up not installing), and shocks. Those were all suspect.  All of this work was quoted at >$4,000. The lower ball joints alone was $1,000 just for labor, by the way. The truck is only worth probably $3-4k.  I bought all of the parts for $180 + $50 for 2 nice new deep socket sets + $75 for some harbor freight tools including and angle grinder, some better jack stands, an air chisel, grease gun, etc. + $40 for a NICE Milwaukee metal drill bit set So total was $305 for parts and NEW tools. Plus I rented a couple things that I turned out not needing. BTW I did the wheel bearings a few weekends before this but that wasn't long and only $100. That wasn't in the shop's quote since I had already done them. The work took about 22 hours total over 2 weekends. Car was safely drive-able after each weekend no problem. 1. I'm a ROOKIE mechanic at best lol. 2. This is on a freaking DODGE. Dodge's are notorious for being a royal pain in the caboose. 3. 2/3 of the total time was spent on one side of the car learning how to do this stuff as I went (and youtube).  4. Everything was rusted to hell. That takes time. 5. I don't even own a freaking impact gun guys. That's like the fundamental mechanic's tool to have, and I don't because I'm a cheap guy haha. So bottom line, $300 for parts and some new tools I can use anytime in the future, and I now have $4,000 in our bank account that is free to use. I also know that it was done CORRECTLY. And isn't it funny that the rookie mechanic (who hit his own thumb with a sludge hammer in the process... yea that hurts (still...)) completed this job with rookie tools, rookie knowledge, on freaking jack stands, in less time than the quote 25 hours to complete the job that the shop quoted? I understand they quote based on worse case (having to cut parts out because of rust and such) but EVERYTHING on this truck was rusted beyond belief and had to be cut out basically. I still handled it in < 22 hours.  Ask yourself: would you be willing to work hard for 22 hours at a rate of ~$168 per hour? Granted there's some risks involved. Maybe some people they aren't worth it. But I even factored in if I had to rent a car for a few weeks because I royally effed up  I'd still come out way ahead.
