I joined a 3some and one of the guys was a club thrower. This ja threw clubs 50 yds or so. Not surprisingly, he had one of the worst swings I have seen, and thought he deserved better results. His bag consisted of only irons, because as he put it, " I threw three full sets of woods (driver, fairways) into the pond at my local course." He literally ran out of woods he owned and could not afford replacements. After he threw a club the 2nd time I told them to play on and joined the 2some behind us. What a fool.
About a month and a half ago, I had a small stroke if there is such a thing. Since I'm feeling better I have been playing again. Before stroke I was playing pretty well for a 68 year old at a 3 hdcp. Since starting back, I have not seen a score in the 70s. Most of my shots are off the toe or very thin. Has anyone had any experience with a sudden change of swing that might cause this crap. I've hit a lot of balls lately and just can't find a swing. What gets me is I feel fine and everything feels normal. Body and swing. Clubs are fitted. I know get a PGA pro to look at it. Suggestions or help appreciated.
On a local course, there is a similar channel that runs the width of the fairway, but is about half as wide and usually has some standing water in it. We always take a free drop away from the direction of the green, w/o penalty, and play on. The channel is meant as drainage, so we don't consider it a natural part of the course. Although, for any official games, the local rules dictate.
