For me it's the time between teeing off and hitting my approach shot, after waiting for a slow group ahead of me to clear my landing area off the tee and then hooking it OB anyway.

See the "Winter Depression Thread". For those of us up north, waiting for the courses to open in the spring is the longest unit of time in golf.

The time from a bad shot until the next shot.  

Maybe for your bad shots. For some of us, that only involves reaching in our pocket for another ball before the distant sound of the previous ball striking a tree reaches us.:-D

    • Day 85: A bit of putting practice after getting home from a long travel day. 
    • I am still searching for a “drop in handicap.” My game seems to be improving but I am still not scoring lower. Can’t explain it.
    • I remember going through those types of situations. A combination of perhaps a fear of damaging the beautiful turf and not having some taller grass to support the ball up off the solid ground. Hitting out of the rough allows more leeway or room for error. during one such period I went to the range and spent quite a while brushing the turf between each shot to get familiar with what I had to work with and get comfortable with a tight lie. eventually you will come to realize that it really comes down to developing a consistent low point to the swing through lots of practice. 
    • Day 116 (23 Oct 21) - worked w/putter and straight edge.  Used both the DF992 and White Steel #5 - big difference in feel.  Drills were to overcome the push I tend to see.  More work needed, but the straightedge does provide the right feedback. 
    • I have been playing on a couple of inexpensive courses to learn , I played on an expensive country club course today and the fairways were in better condition than the greens at the courses I usually play. Very short grass.   I had a very very hard time hitting off these fairways ,  I had been getting into a groove on the lesser courses and my play was rapidly improving with my off fairway approach game being the best part of my game. I went from hitting at least 10 80 to 100 yard shots in a round onto the green from the fairway to hitting maybe 3 of 13 of them today. My hits were a medley of ground balls , tops, and other disasters.    The only grass range I have access to has very coarse rough type grass , should I just practice taking some exaggerated divots on it ? I read about playing a tee 8” or so in front of the ball to practice hitting ahead of it. Open to any other suggestions. Today was humbling.
