I'll buy your clubs for $50, then donate them to a local First Tee or something.

In other news, this might be the most non-specific thread of all time.

Read a book on golf psychology. Then you'll realize this round has 0 meaning on anything in your golf game, just trust your swing and know you're better.

Also, I doubt you had the WORST round ever...

You think you had a bad round! I lost NINE fecking golf balls on the weekend...NINE!!! Do you have ANY idea how much those golf balls cost me? No...neither do I so when you find out let me know :)

Rest in the knowledge, like I do, that there is always someone somewhere having a worse round of golf than you are! :)

Mmmmmmm....Bacon Gravy.

To the OP, it's just one round. I once shot a 123. You put it behind you, remember what good happened while out there and move forward. All you can do really.

I feel your pain. Went out today and played a nice long course for a change and my usually reliable driver utterly deserted me. I'll be back. [/terminator]

Well my old pro used to say:

If you make birdie your doing great

if par . your in good shape

if bogey well you have to concentrate better

id double or worse you need to see me.

haha

I probably had the worst round off golf to this weekend at competition, could not get the ball in play with driver or 3 wd, even not with my hybrid 2 iron.

morning round i still tried to hit it well with driver, but i would give my self a compliment if i say the balls where hooking, so far left......

Afternoon round i was at the range for a few balls still the same hooking massively. irons where ok in the morning so i put the driver and 3 wood in the car.

I was really nailing my 3 iron every single teeshot. hit them flush about 230 yards. Pissing my opponent off when my 3 iron ended up further than his 3wd.

came down to an 7-6 win for me. Only bad thing was i struggled to get my long irons on the green. chipping and pitching was good so i was fine. Last hole i was

at a 410 yrd par 4 and hit my 3 I off the tee, leaving me a 190 yrd in, hit a bad 5 iron into greenside front bunker. got my 58 wedge and holed out. taking the win with

me.

So what you should do is find a way to get the ball in play not in woods or water.

Welcome to the game of golf.  Until you reach the point where you're a very consistent player, you'll often find yourself faced with this situation.  I can go out one day and play a decent game (for me) - go out the next day and play like I've never touched a golf club before.  One day your driver is on fire but you can't putt a lick, next day you're sinking every putt on the green but you can't hit a decent shot off the tees to save your life.  Play golf for as long as you live and you'll never master it - that's part of the intrigue of the game.

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
