  1. I played behind a foursome Sunday at my home course. We have red, grey, white, blue and then gold tees. These guys had one player at the grey, 2 at the white and one at blue. I am not trying to be mean about this, because 3 of them were older gentlemen. This was a disaster from the get go. You can not hold people up by playing three sets of tees in one group. That is not an excuse. We called the ranger out and the ranger told them to speed up or let us play through. They finally sped up. My problem is, you see us waiting every single shot. Why do we have to call a ranger out there for y'all to
  2. It sounds like you have some golf skills and a strong mind to get back out and bring the handicap down to a 9. Congrats on the recovery! Keep playing well!
  3. I played this past Saturday, Sunday and Monday! It was hot as ever but fun. I shot a 80 on Saturday with three doubles in my first nine. I had one birdie that round. I kept my cool and still had fun. Sunday I started out great with a birdie on hole 1 and finished with a bogey on hole 9. I birdied hole 10 which put me back at 1 under for the round. I got to my kryptonite. Hole 14! I doubled it, pared the 15th, doubled 16th, pared 17th and bogeyed the 18th. This is where I seem to not be able to do anything right. This stretch of holes on my home course. Monday was almost as bad as Sun
  4. I understand where you are coming from! Thank you for the positive attitude for sure. I am sorry about not answering where I live in Georgia. I thought I did mention it. I live in Lowndes County. We have 5 courses. Four are public and one is Private. My regular course is Stone Creek. The nicest course around is Kinderlou. They are all under 50 dollars to play on the weekend. The last time I checked. (About 3 months ago)
  5. Anyone that has that going against them in life and can get out and do what they like is a great inspiration. It show that you have a strong mind and willpower . That is what I need to think about when I get mad or lazy. I need to be grateful and have that mindset while playing golf. Good Luck with it all!
  6. Keep it up! You will get to your goal again. I have a friend that started playing about 6 months ago. He never really cared before because he would shoot around 100 every round. He started practicing more and with in a month or so, he started breaking 100. another 2 or so months he started breaking 90. now he is in his mid to high 80's and has been there for months. He is happy with that and is glad that he never gave up. Good luck with it all! Go get your goal of breaking 90 again!
  7. That is super tough! I have a long time ahead of me to get to that point! Congratulations!
  8. Y'all keep the stories coming. I love getting on here at the beginning of my day and seeing these cool and inspiring stories.
  9. Y'all have some great advice and good events to back the advice up. I can relate more than ever to the events that happen to you all. It makes me feel better about my game and the future of it. Knowing that there are things to still try out. I most of the time find myself trying to make a big shot to make up a penalty on the same hole. I need to take the advice from y'all and focus on a good recovery rather than try to make a big shot in hopes of still scoring low. I for sure need to change something. Thank y'all! Keep the advice coming and the good stories. It helps me out and I am sure i
  10. I have been thinking about what y'all have written on this post. I do not mentally approach the ball with the intention of playing my shot in my head. I look at where the ball needs to go and then hit. I need to make that a big part of my pre shot. I will enforce that this Saturday. As RoverRick mentioned! RevKev, I see where you are coming from. I actually have a hole that is a par 5 with water on the right 100% of the hole and water/ out of bounds on the left side of the hole. Out of the last ten times that I have played it. I have scored 5 double, 3 bogeys, 1 par and 1 eagle. This hole
  11. I have come to the conclusion, that one whole or one shot really does cost me a 9 or sometimes my whole round. I do have a laid back temper with people. Golfing just seems to break me down mentally some times. I can be 1 or 2 over after 5 or 6 holes and be happy. I some how always get 2 to 3 doubles in a round. one is not a head buster, but two or three is mentally bad for me. I rarely recover if I have 2 doubles within the first 9 holes. I know that we have all been in the spot where we feel like we can never get anything right in a round of golf. My biggest mental fault is when I hit a nice
  12. No golf till Saturday!

  13. Not many things bother me on the course. I play with random folks all of the time. I am able to see ridiculous and great actions on the course by doing that. I played yesterday in a two man match play tournament. We had to play two other teams in the 18 hole tournament. I have never been in a tournament with such a obnoxious person in my years of playing with a bunch of random folks. You can talk in my back swing, cuss, throw your clubs, walk in my line so on and so on. I was pushed to my limit yesterday though. The group that I was playing with had to have a conference on every sin
  14. This is what I am looking for. I really do appreciate the information you have shared. I struggle with being random at my game. I can hit a 50 yard shot 3 ft from the pin, drop a ball and hit the exact shot 20 15 ft from the pin. My chipping was on fire today. Yesterday I could chip without Hitting it thin or getting it close. I also seem to not be able to remember every time I chip to keep my head down. I kept track of the grass mark on my chips and it was scattered on the face yesterday. It is almost like I twitch on my downward action before I hit the ball. I will read up and take the
  15. I struggle with my 50 yards and in game. Along with putting. I practice it like crazy. I might spend 30 minutes on the range and then about an hour with the short game. I am looking into some lessons. I started this to see if anyone had some ideas or knew of a place to watch videos. That will help with the short game. It would be nice to figure some things out before I spend a bunch of money on lessons. Which I will if I have to. Thank you for the reply!
  16. Get to playing and working these clubs till you get tired. They are a club that has a name behind it! A great one. Y'all enjoy!
  17. I have been practicing 2 to 3 times a week for a month now. I play 2 rounds on average a week. Why in the world does it seem like nothing is getting better? I will shoot one over on one side and then shoot 5 over on the 2nd side. The scores are different for each side different rounds.
  18. My mother in law lives in Corpus Christie. She said Texas has been getting some terrible weather. Y'all stay safe out there.
  19. I am able to play in any season. I am not trying to sound cool or anything. I just play the same. At least my scores are consistent in that aspect. I do struggle with practicing and it not show up on the course. I know some folks that will not pick a club up if it is cold. Cold as in south Georgia cold. LOL! I do always play one side better than the other at my home course. I have yet to figure that out.
  20. You are right. I know a few people that play bad, but can keep pace.
  21. The one thing that I can not stand. Is for someone to take a long time to hit the ball and hit it bad constantly.
  22. It rained on the scramble yesterday. Hopefully it will not rain on the night golf tournament tonight. 9 in daylight and 9 in the dark!

  23. I believe 9 times out of 10, that what tee you play should be based on what approach you are most comfortable with plus the distance off the tee. If you can hit the ball 230 plus. You should be comfortable playing the men's tees on your average course. Most courses will play 6200 to 6800 yards from the men's tee. 230 plus is fine!
