Murphy's Law for bogey golfer

26 posts in this topic

PART I:

If driver works, putting sucks.   If ball striking improves, short game goes south.  Never will everything work at the same time.

If you buy a new, expensive equipment, it improves your game for a week.  Two weeks later, you are back to where you started at, minus what you paid for the equipment.  Worse yet, you see an EBay ad that sells your new equipment for 1/2 of what you paid for.

If you practice like a dog for a month, your handicap index goes lower (finally!!!).   As soon as you stop practicing for two days, you lose all your improvements.

Every sub-90 round will be followed by over-100 round.   But not every over-100 round will be followed by sub-90 round.

If there is a parking lot next to a hole, your drive will find the parking lot and hits your car.

If you are sure you hit a 260 yard drive, GPS measurement shows it only went 220.

If you hit a mulligan because a playing partner insisted, the mulligan shot is worse than your original one.

If you hit a once in a life time shot, there is no one to witness it.

If you get to green in two on a par 5 hole, you three putt the hole.

If you lip out on the first hole, you will have a good (?) putting round with a dozen more lip outs.

If you align yourself to hit a draw, you hit a push.   If you align yourself to hit a fade, you shank it.  If you try to hit a straight shot, you either get a push or shank.

This is by far the most accurate thing I have ever read on the internet. I laughed out loud (slightly hysterically) several times, and now my girlfriend thinks I am insane. Can't wait for part 2!

I've had the lip outs for the last three rounds at least I know it's not my fault

awesome .... forgot, if you miss an easy 3 footer on the first hole and make double, its a guaranteed precurser to the rest of the round being in the toilet.

I can't wait until these are my problems. I am a double bogey golfer, and it is more like, if you hit a great drive off the tee, and follow up with a sweet three wood on a par five, you are certainly looking at a blowup hole.

These are so great and so true.  I can particularly relate to the lowering of the handicap!

If you are shooting for even bogey going into the last hole, the last hole will explode (Happened to me yesterday).

    • From this, it actually looks like he gets the club back on plane through impact. This is wild.
    • That's an exaggeration. He's obviously shown that he has the potential to compete but he struggles with consistency month to month. I think everyone who watches golf underestimates just how rare it is to have back to back seasons as the likes of Tiger, Jack, or Arnold- especially in a field as talented as it is in 2016. I'm a huge believer that these past few seasons have been some of the best tour golf ever played in the history of the game, especially when it's looked at in terms of depth. Week to week, it's really anyone's tournament to take, and it hasn't always been like that.
    • Trump paying out the $1M to a wealthy individual is a non-story.  The entire story is a non-story, I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the news channels and beyond a cut and paste no one else is covering it.  If this was something the democrats or liberal media really thought could hurt Trump we'd be hearing about it constantly.  No one cares when rich guys get into a dispute, there's no damage control to be done here. The real reason it's even in the news is because Trump's charity (not his golf course) paid out money to Greenberg's charity and it was a potential inappropriate use of the charity funds.  
      I'm guessing those that voted Trump should pay are basing this off their general dislike for Trump or his platform as a POTUS candidate.  Anyone who read the facts and didn't have a bias against Trump would conclude paying off Greenberg was not Trump's responsibility.  
    • Genetics definitely play a role, but not as much as people think. If you have a 6 foot frame to work with from the get-go, you will obviously be able to make a bigger swing with less effort than someone who stands 5 feet tall with shorter arms. A bigger swing path = more time to gain momentum through impact. This is where technique and flexibility come into play, though. Having a large frame/swing only correlates to distance if you can do two things, 1) swing at a high rate of speed through the slot, 2) maintain a square club face on impact. I am not a tall or big person by any means, but I gain a lot of my strokes by being able to hit a wedge or low iron into the majority of holes I play. The biggest adjustment to my game that I made in order to hit the long ball has been working on my shoulder flexibility as well as timing my hip turn. If you are a smaller person and want to improve distance, you should first make sure you are able to hit the ball squarely, but after, elongate the path of your lead arm without compromising your spine alignment and swing plane. It definitely isn't something that happens in one range session as it oftentimes takes multiple seasons in order to find 15-25 yards from the tee. But genetics definitely are not the only thing that factor into hitting big drives, I would say it is much more contingent on technique and timing than anything else.  
    • Actually it is not. It's taking something that people will perceive is bad associated with you, your brands and your business as Trump and making sure it doesn't affect you negatively. People saying it's not his fault and would be bad business are failing to see the big picture. He generates so much money off of his name and reputation and brand that if something is associated with him negatively, wrong or right, it could have already cost him far more than a million dollars of revenue or EBITDA.  And this was another executive  not sure I want the word on street to be that I didn't make good for another CEO. It's the same reason why when Chik Fil A made a statement about gay marriage they also were outside handing out free bottles of water to protesters. And their sales went even higher!  They controlled the message and paid for it and what happened?  They came out winners. There are multiple examples of this in business. That's why I disagree with @iacasand with @newtogolf  And apparently over 70 percent of the voters on this poll agree.  Ultimately we can have our own opinions on it and that's mine.
