Ive been getting splitting headaches at the driving range recently. I dont really get headaches when playing a round or really doing anything else. Has anyone else experienced this? I think I might be swinging a little hard. Not sure if its a mental thing, because it happens mostly when I hit on mats.

Could be repetition, could be mental, I could have a brain tumor, who knows. Just wondering if anyone else gets headaches after repeatedly hitting over and over.

Naw, it could be the heat though. Not really sure. It's just wierd that it mostly happens on mats and never when I am actually golfing. Only at the range.

All joking aside, it could be your swing.  If you're coming down on the ball and hitting off the mats the recoil might be effecting you.  I'm just speculating though since I've never heard of anyone having this issue before.

you could be stressing out to much. I have a tedency to get frustrated after hitting to many uglies. Find the 1 shot that youhit well and relax. Enjoy the moment and see if that makes a difference.

I think I am getting a lot of recoil. I want too frustrated today. Only frustration came from having the headache. Who knows. I would think is a health problem if it happened any where else besides the driving range. I am very active though, so it's weird that I don't get it when playing hockey or working out putting stress on my body.

I see a lot of people at the range in such a hurry.. I take time to relax a bit, even if its a few more seconds between hits to compose myself and try to think of in-game situations.. blah blah.

There are times when I've found myself clenching my jaw and had to take a moment to relax at the range.

If I still can't relax, I take off my pants.

I get headaches when I don't stay hydrated or haven't eaten.  I'm in SoCal near the Ocean and it can get into the mid 80's - and the hottest I've seen is low 90's.  But even at those temperatures, when your out banging balls with no shade or cover... It can take a tool on you.

Make sure you drink plenty of fluids and eat something.  I usually try and take a bottled water - and sometimes an energy drink + protein bar to snack on when I'm at the range here and it is blazing.

I realized that I hasn't drank any soda today. I normally drink Pepsi as soon as I get to work (not a coffee person) and I get headache when I don't drink caffeine. Who knows, I probably have a tumor lol

You may have a tumor but you also have a caffeine addiction!  Not as hard to break as nicotine but still a painful 3-4 days if you do try to go without it.

Are you staying hydrated? Are you hitting without taking breaks? Do you go at a time that it's hot and not drinking? Are you drinking the wrong thing? Did you drink alcohol the day before and not get rehydrated?

    • Day 121.  While I plan to do more practice later today, I've already done some.  I hit a dozen full swings (two slow practice swings, focusing on a setup priority piece at setup and my better backswing whose picture changed recently).  6-iron, indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls.  I also hit about two dozen chip shots (less than quarter) with my new-to-me 54 degree sand wedge.  I plan to do more work later, but I'm not sure I'll have time to post later, so I wanted to make sure I got the daily challenge part in at least. 
    • The only times I really get ticked about hitting a third shot is if I'm still closer to the tee box than I am the green.
    • Day 80 (6/24/21) -   Chipping and Putting Practice - spent about 20 minutes on the practice green with my 58* wedge spot chipping to a target (my folded golf towel) 2,3 and 4 paces from the edge of the green, then hit 3 chips each to various holes trying to get the ball to within 4 feet of the hole (which I did about half the time). Then practiced lag putting, 3 balls each to different holes trying to get within 4 feet of the hole, which I did around 2/3s of the time.  Range practice - 9-3 swings using my 7 and 8 iron and a noodle station; small bucket. Focused on keeping the club face facing the ground on the downswing and making good contact.
    • Best part about this pit stop is that they did more than the pit stops in the videos above. Not only did they change the tires, they also adjusted the front wing at the same time on both sides. All in under 2 seconds still.
    • If it was about skill, and if the green reading books made bad putters better than they otherwise would perform, we'd see the worst putters on tour being closer to the best putters because there is less of a skill gap between the two. Instead we see that the gap between the best and the worst at putting has only grown larger since the widespread introduction of green reading books. This means they have not had any measurable impact on a player's ability to putt well, because it isn't allowing the worst putters on tour to keep up with the best like you would see if some part of the game took less skill suddenly. I ignored the skill issue because claiming it's a matter of skill is patently ridiculous, and provably false. They can say whatever they like, doesn't mean a word of it is true.
