Never not enjoyed golf like this before!!!

6 posts in this topic

Dunno what happened tonight? Usual 9 holes 4 ball after work, first tee drove the ball 150yrds into trees on the left, this NEVER happens, then hooked it further in, played a safety out then landed it in the green side bunker, took three shots to get out then putted out! Quadruple bogey! I turned to my pals and said "I think someone's spiked my drink?" 2nd hole par 5, screwed it right, lost ball, couple of duffers later I manage to chip next to the hole and salvage a bogey, this went on and by the 5th hole I wanted to go home, it was like I'd never played before! I Couldn't drive or hit an iron to save my life, it was only my short game that stopped me going mental and making a complete fool of myself! Now I've played bad before, but even when I play bad I still enjoy it! But today I couldn't find any joy at all! Couldn't wait to get home! But I'm playing again Saturday, the full 18 and As usual I can't wait, need to right a few wrongs! What is it about this stupid ferkin game I love so much??

I wish I could say it never happened to me but I know those days all too well.  I keep hoping for one round where all parts of my game are working but it never seems to click.

Good thing about golf is you can go back out there and the problem you just had won't be there but you'll find something else to complain about.

This really is the only sport where you can say, "did everything wrong today, drove off into the trees, broke my driver over my knee, three putted, hit my best friend for laughing at me.... God, I love this sport" :-P

I had a similar experience last year. I am a 9 handicap, and I pride myself on my consistency, but this day I played with a yellow ball and started with 4 bogeys and 4 double-bogeys. I can't remember the last time I was 12 over after 8 holes, but fortunately I was playing 18 holes. On the 9th hole I changed back to my Pro V1 white ball, and told my playing partner, Jim, it was the yellow ball's fault. Well, the next ten holes I shot even par with an eagle, a birdie 3 bogies and 5 pars.  Hopefully, on Saturday your normal game returns.
