Most frustrating to me is when I blade like a 40 yard approach shot and it flies 40 yards past the green.  Especially if there happens to be OB or woods behind said green.

Great drive sets up a wedge in... theoretically an easy shot.  Blade and goes over.  Makes my blood boil...

this one - on short to medium distance par 4's when I have a nice drive, and I am holding a club I have a high degree of confidence to put it on the green and have a birdie put and I generally top it because my tempo gets to fast from being excited.

A few days ago, I was playing a GREAT back 9, was 5 over going into the 18th hole a 500 yard par 5.  I STRIPE the drive leaving me around 225 out to the green, a 4w should put me close, I get excited top it 15'.  Out of frustration, now at 210, i hit the same club with no practice swing and leave it inches off the green.

Two holes earlier on a short par 4, I hit a nice hybrid off the tee, and at 125 in take a 3/4 PW and shank it into the water, drop another ball, no practice swing, and drop it 5' from the cup, drop the putt for bogey.

It's the blown chip shot for me. Usually it's leaving it short because I haven't taken enough of a swing. Get's all handsy and weak. I have no doubt I do it 2-3 times per 18. My #1 cause of double bogey. That and bad lag putts are killing me ATM. I'm to the point that if I miss a green I hope it lands in a bunker. I know I'll make a better swing from there.

For me the most frustrating shot it missing a short putt, esp. for a birdie opportunity or to save par.  Over the weekend I had two birdie opportunities where my approach shot came to rest within less than 4' of the pin, missed both of them.  The first one was just a bad read, underestimated the break.  The second one looked great, was tracking right to the hole, but hit the right side of the cup and rimmed out.  Then I converted a 20' putt for birdie late in the round, go figure.  I also missed a couple short putts to save par where the ball looked great heading toward the hole only to hit something on the green close to the cup and bounce off line.  Damn those muni greens!

I'm an oddall 2. THIS.  What makes it doubly frustrating is it can be a turning point moment in the round. You could be on the green putting for eagle or just off the green with a 15-20 yd up and down for bird. Miss it and you're looking at best at a 5 at worst 7 or 8. Still my weakest part of my game.

When im 140 from the green and I think 'either a seven and risk rolling of the back (always dangerous on ky home course) or crush an 8 and get a bit of extra spin to make it hold. Go for the 8i and everything goea wrong. Huge bladed slice into what might aswell be oblivion. Drop a provisional from where the 8i was taken. Change back to the seven and drop it 3ft from the pin. Kill me now!

Mine is fatting (or skulling or hosselling) an 8 iron into the green after a perfect tee shot.  From 8 through wedges is supposed to be my bread and butter.  It's the only clubs I'm good at.  I'm terrible off the tee.  I don't even carry a driver.  About 140 and in is my domain.

So when I crush a 3-wood or Hybrid right down the middle - and I actually have a relatively short shot left - it is a fairly rare opportunity for me. This shot is what I've been hoping for all day!  This is my chance to shine.  Par is a given.  Then I throw up all over myself.

It is hard not to throw the clubs in the pond and walk straight to the car after this.

For me, it's the 80-120 yard wedge from a perfect like that results in a hosel rocket.  Sometimes it derails my entire round.  It's not just the taking double-bogey after a perfect drive on the hole that does it, it's the thought/fear of the shanking the next one that stays with me.

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
