Sometimes, this forum can be a bit negative toward the golf games of its members. I will take a bit of the "blame" for that - it's my nature to focus on the things that need improved, and kind of ignore the stuff that's good (it doesn't need attention if it's pretty good; work on your weaknesses!). This is not generally a bad thing, really. We should work on our weaknesses, and focusing on weaknesses doesn't have to be a "depressing" or overly "negative" experience. In fact, I get great joy sometimes from knowing what a weakness is and how to fix it - that leads to hope, and desire. But, still, sometimes we should take a moment to pat ourselves on the back. Dave and I trademarked "Golf is Hard®" and if you have LSW, you'll know what I mean when I talk about the chapter "The Man from a Faraway Land" and the estimates he'd make on how many strokes it takes to get the ball into the hole. All of us here manage to beat the score that man predicts… because we are all quite good when you view it from that perspective. So, in this topic: Please, brag about something you've done, something you nearly did, anything. (Golf-related) Post if you need someone to pump you up a little bit. Post something positive in golf that you experienced, saw, or participated in. Post about when you're pumped up about something, yourself, so others can soak in your joy. Sound good? I would start, but I know a lot of you are good at things. Actually, here's a good example: Great job @mvmac!
I'll post my answer later, but to be clear, I'm talking about: Full swing mechanics type shots. This doesn't mean "short game shots" or putts. Tee shots and approaches outside of about 70 yards, as well as those second shots on par fives. By "pure" I don't mean absolutely pure, but I do mean shots where you can't really tell if you hit it a little funny (toward the toe, a half a groove thin, etc.). Directionality counts. If you hit one absolutely flush but the face was 10° open and the ball sails 30 yards right… that's not a "pure shot".
