Have you ever had a day when you just plain sucked?
Posted 30 November 2017 - 04:24 PM
I have not had a beer while golfing in 25 years. I now have a formula where after 9 holes if I am 24 or more over, I'm drinking. At the turn I caught the cart girl and bought 2 - 16oz beers. They were gone by the time I teed off on 11 and I'm a light weight.
Played much better on the back and my partner said I was a lot more fun.

For example, I was recently playing a tournament and took a 10 on a short par 4 (#3) due to a bladed sw over the green into trouble. Rather than focus on that, I thoughht about the tough par 5 I had just pared that I made an 11 on last year (same tourney). I parred the next two. On 9,island green par 3, i took a 9 with two in the drink (due more to 30 mph face wind than bad shots).
I tried to focus on those good holes, shots rather than dwell on the negatives. I eventually finished 5th. Not great, but I could have finished last had I focused on those two round killing holes.

I was 3/10 from 10 on my putting mat against my Oncologist when I normally am 7/10 even half blind and gripping basically one handed, I missed the toilet from 18-24 and I turned around in the elevator to exit and got disoriented and cracked my orbital(eye) against the elevator door.
Those days will happen-
Get some sleep, get up & do it again~
Itll get better�

I havent struck the ball this poorly in quite a few years. No clue.

Greens were rock hard and nothing rolled true. Ice crystals underfoot.
Sunday I had on four layers and just couldn't get it going.
My arms wouldn't unfold.
Got a few pars but the doubles ate me up. Couldn't chip for a cash prize.
Glad next weekend will actually be warmer. Might hit 50.

2- On the days when absolutely nothing works, I play a one-club game, usually my 3 hybrid. Or if I vary, I lean on that club 90pct. Totally simplifies the game and makes it easier. Less variance.
I can tee off w it, hit a choked down shot for practice, wail at it, chip, putt, basically anything but an actual pitch or flop, but that's not impossible either.
Takes the pressure off, gets creative, and next round when u pick up that club, you own it.

Earlier this year I shot a lifetime low round of 63 (-8) and then followed that round with an 85. For you folks that are math deficient that is a 22 stroke swing!
Generally for me itís a tempo thing. When tempo is good I go low, when itís off...itís a crapshoot.

to explain but it happens to a lot of us. It's just friggin' weird.
I just had an idea. Maybe next time I play do a "comfort check" and address
a ball before I leave the house. Probably won't stop me from playing but at
least I'll know I'm gonna be out of my comfort zone all day.
