Golf game went downhill bad! Help!

2 posts in this topic

Ok, 2 weeks ago I was playing (for me anyways) pretty good golf. I was shooting low 80's to mid-high 70's on a regular basis. But never any higher that low 80's. I couldn't miss a fair way with my driver and if I missed a green it was 3-5 yards off the right or left side of the green, i naturally hit a slight (5-8) yard fade. Say for an approach shot. If you ball started at the pin it would fade to the right side of the green, but if it started left of the green it would fade into the left center. Anyways, in the last two weeks my game has basically disappeared. When I pick a club up there's no telling where it's going to go, 85% of the time it's a nasty high slice, but then I'll throw a snap hook in there, or a nice straight ball right down the middle of the fair way.. It doesn't make any sense and I can't seem to hit the ball straight, I've watched a million videos and tried a million things with no success..

    • I've always been frustrated by how badly I putt on these surfaces.  I'm sure these guys who win these tournaments are good at what they do, but it sure seems to take a different set of skills than putting on a golf course. Off the top of my head, some of the differences that throw me off in mini-golf: uneven carpets, less uniform than golf greens (for example, mini-golfers wouldn't have a need for Aimpoint, is my guess!) the stupid little volcano effect that seems to be around many holes- throwing your ball off line if it is going too slow as it nears the hole the need to shorten your backswing when you're near a wall or obstacle I'm not sure what skills these guys have that make them good at dealing with these things. Is it just that they practice and are used to it all? Some of the folks in the video don't appear to have very good traditional putting form to my eye, but presumably they're pretty good to be competing in this tournament.  Interesting video though. Not sure if this is related to the real Masters, but they have certainly "borrowed" a few things such as the "green jacket" and the logo. Anyway, I just stumbled onto that video above in one of my news feeds, and thought it was kinda fun.
    • 4 more to go. Too bad about stupid Allstar game screwing us out of home field but I don't think this group cares. 
    • Not foolish but I would almost guarantee Phil's 63 on Sunday at the Ryder Cup had every influence on Tiger's decision, especially considering they were going to be paired together and knowing their history.  No doubt in my mind but obviously none of us know Tiger's mind, except maybe @colin007. No idea what u said there.
    • Glad you're piecing together things that work for you, @paininthenuts, but I've been around here long enough to have read stuff from instructors that: what works for one person may not work for another. tips are generally not a good way to build a swing.  I know the site prides itself on having solid instructional advice, so when high-handicappers like you and me post advice, it might be best to put out some caveats like "hey this worked for me, but I'm not an expert. Anyone else?"  Just a thought- meant as a friendly hint, not a scolding. I mention this because I know you're always an entertaining poster here, and I've seen quite a few folks go down in flames over disputes where a person was giving specific golf advice when they were simply not qualified or were putting out complete misinformation (perhaps unintentionally). I just don't wanna see history repeated like that.
    • Thanks for the confirmation. I was hoping that as I approach the tender young age of 47 that I wasn't falling into the 'that music is too loud' syndrome. :)
