Pictures of weird stuff on the course.

Not sure if this the right area, it is still on the topic of golf. Catch something odd on the golf course? Post it here! I'll start.

A set of Cleveland irons in it and I don't know what else was abandoned on the tee of the 2nd hole... No one was around.

Paradox    26

haha, playing a couple weeks ago and saw a guy walking put his bag down on a tee box.  He's on the phone and just starts wandering off and probably walked 3 fairways over...about 30 minutes later he comes back in a cart and retrieves his clubs.  Was rather strange to see someone just wandering around.

I would have been even funnier if he had his phone hit with a golf ball. Always seems like someone has to be yelling into the phone on the course.

    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
    • I take it to mean so much more than that.  Course management is all mental.  How you practice and approach your continuing improvement is part of it too.  Controlling your tempo in your swing and distance on long putts is mental.  Why do we even have to practice?  So our minds can teach our bodies what to do.   But that isn't what I was after in this thread.  I was looking for different ways people use their brains to optimize their results on the course.  Maybe I should've started a thread on that instead of this chicken and egg debate.
    • Sept. 25 Got in 15 minutes of free-play practice with my 60° LW after work. It's getting dark earlier... Practiced close-in hinge and hold, 3/4 and full swing. Ball will stop quickly out of deep, fluffy stuff as long as I hit it squarely.
