Golf gods heard me

3 posts in this topic

The golf gods were in full effect for my round yesterday. It started on the 8th tee where I said to my buddy, " I used this ball all last round too" so I then step up to the tee and snap hook it OB. Start of hole 10 I say to my buddy, "Hey if I play the back 1 under Ill shoot a 79" So I start out par then birdie, then par, then I lip my birdie opp for par, miss another birdie opp by an inch for par. Then im waiting on the 15th tee after already being 5 hours into the round and I say to my buddy again, "If I dont get to finish this pace for best score of my life because of this 6 hour round I am gonna be pissed" Well dont you know I TRIPLE bogied that hole, doubled the next and the one after that and the one after that. Finish with an 86 which I should be pretty happy because it was always a really tough course for me but its not my 70's. Golf gods crushed me. Or I started to get into my own head. Either way it sucks. After playing well for 14 holes though I feel better about being able to score better and soon Im breaking 80 on an average course. This one was kind of a bohemith.

tough break Jim...  When i think about those things, what my score would be if this that and the other..., usually nothing good happens!

I try not to think about my score during a round, and I absolutely do not say anything aloud that might speak to my competence.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
