To be blunt - I have been playing great golf over the last 4 rounds. A 79, 78, 80 and 82. My G.I.R and Fairways hit are up and everything has just been working.

Yesterday, I went out to the same course I shot 80 on two weeks ago, and shot a dirty ol' 92.

5 greens and 7 fairways.....

My driver was bad, my irons were all over the place ( including over shooting so many greens - hit my SW 145??!?!? and my PW 170?!?! )

My chipping was chunky, bunkers chunky and my putting TERRIBLE ( 35 putts )

I tried not to get down on myself, but there is nothing more frustrating than repeating the same mistake over and over - especially just when you think things are going in the right direction.

How do you deal with it? Should I go for a 3 hour range session, take a week off?

stop scoring, use it as a practice session, enjoy the day, hit extra balls if pace allows, try the freaky shots

it's still better than work and many other things

"hit my SW 145??!?!? and my PW 170?!?! "  this is a great problem to have - if you figure out how to replicate that swing, you can turn that into a whole new level of play (either back it down for more control, or leverage the extra distance....).  Good day to play with it.

I would love to do it on a regular basis

Maybe I will go play a quick 9 tonight and play with a couple of balls instead of just one

    • Was just watching Rory's highlights from day 2. From 1 over to 4 under.  What ball striking. Amazing.  Looks like he is recovering from his ill fated attempt to gain more distance after Bryson's win in the US Open. Can see him winning this tournament if the form continues for two more days
    • Day 35 (5/7/21) - 9-hole league tonight. I can't seem to translate good drives on the range to good drives on the course and threw away a number of shots tonight. It didn't help that I had had a really busy day which included cutting the lawn. Like they say......golf is hard.
    • Well he won a pretty tough US OPEN so I think he’s got what it takes. BD pretty much a mess. Always having to resort to hero shots from tough spots off the fairway aren’t gonna win him too many tournaments. I would assume his SG off the tee were pretty poor for these rounds.
    • Looked like a tough day today. Jon Rahm didn't make the cut. I guess staring daggers at the camera didn't improve his putting any. And, what's with DeChambeau? All his length doesn't seem to be doing much good for him that I can see. He managed to sneak in under the cutline with a +2 but not a very good showing. Maybe if he dropped the Iron Byron look and added a bit more fluidity to his swing? Gary Woodland is doing OK so far but I expect to see him sag as the pressure builds. Hovland had a hard day, too, but only 5 shots back
