Does anyone else play worse if they play multiple days in a row? I recently played 3 days in a row and my scores got worse as the days went on. Note: my putting did not change Day 1: 87 (first time breaking 90 had some pars and even a rare birdie) Day 2: 93 (had 2 more penalties from my driver and a few scuffs from the irons that went a few feet) Day 3: 107 (driver started giving me trouble from the start. My fairway wood shots were hitting the dirt which never happens and is probably my best club. Irons weren't getting the distances they were supposed to and to top it off i bladed a chip) I feel like it's because as a new golfer (6 months) I start to overthink multiple things My wrist starts to get sore and I get lazy not bringing it back enough at the start. very minor aches and pains make me feel like my I'm trying to swing around them without realizing it. (Changing my swing so I won't feel the ache) I start to think about every nook and cranny about my swing I take a lot of time in my stance before I swing (this is a sign for me that I'm about to shank lol) I start to leave my eye off the ball to soon My tempo starts to go haywire because I have my focus divided into so many things. Overall I'll become very frustrated I don't think this is a problem for low handicappers because they have played for so long that they have a stronger mental game than new players. Just my 2¢ as a new golfer.
G'morning all! Its a chilly-ish morning here in Chicago which made me want to ask this to you all: where do you personally draw the line to play given the weather and conditions? I know many people who put away the clubs when it drops below 60 degrees and also know a few who will play until a foot of snow is on the ground (even then I'm sure they'll try to somehow). With the colder and wetter conditions and as winter begins to take over, do you all also continue your play/practice indoors at ranges or simulators? I personally do not play below about 40 degrees with a wind chill. It begins to feel more like an episode of survival than a round of golf but that's just me being weak. I'm also brand new to this site so I look forward to communicating with a lot of new people! Happy Sunday!
