Golf Confessionals

I also hit into groups if they take way too long. Don't need 4 practice swings and you don't need to visualize the damn shot while you're standing over the ball. Should of done that while you were driving/walking to your ball.

 

Yea, if that happens to me (which I don't take practice swings or visualize the ball) I take out my 3 wood or 3 iron and rifle it back at them. Depending on the situation.

I'm Revkev and I actually get paid to hear people's confessions for a living.

Golf Confessionals (What do you confess about your game?)   My recent purchase of game golf and our hotly debated tee thread has me thoroughly inspecting my game and my ego. Pre game golf, I thought

Hi I'm Hacker, and I have issues....haha   First confession. I wait for all groups inside 450, just to be safe.   2nd. I know that no club will fix my game, but I will never let my wife know.

I would totally do this too, but I feel like the message would be lost when I sliced it deep into the trees.

Lets see...... I used to think I drove the ball around 280. I then realized my home course had most of the yardages wrong on the tees. I average about 240-250 yds. At 55, I'll take it!

 

I am a terrible putter! If I could putt, I could shoot in the 70's more than twice a season.

 

I have no idea what my handicap is. I usually shoot 80-84 most of the time. A couple of times a season I will get in the 70's. Can anyone give me a 'roundabout as to my handicap?

I, mr_divots, am a horrible bunker player. I avoid them pretty well. I'm surprised when I hit a good one. LOL!

I try not to add up my score until I hole out on 18. If you want to mess with me, tell me my score. ha!

Thanks! I think 8 is being generous. Probably 11 is more like it...lol.

 

If we are playing for money: 8

If you and I are playing as a team: 11

 

Cheers!

Depends on the slope for the course you play, could be anywhere from 6- 12

Once tried getting into a lower flight by posting a score I never put in the system because it was so bad and I stopped truly counting. Still was in the better flight by .1 handicap index.

 

hate playing with golfers that duff the ball. Takes me out of rhythm.

I carry my 7-iron 135 yards, on average. I am always the shortest hitter in any male group I play in, generally I shoot the lowest number.

 

I've spent 3 years of lessons trying to perfect my long-game swing. I've probably spent a total of 10 hours working on my short-game in that time. (Though I practice putting almost daily. It can be done indoors, why not?)

 

If I had children of my own, I'd be putting a golf club in their hands just after the birth. I'd have a cigar in one hand and a childs putter in the other, ready to hand it over and start ingraining proper technique:) (Isn't that how you grow your own Tiger/Rory?)

 

This season I want to break 80 more than once, I have no plan on how to achieve this beyond more of the same practice routine.

 

If I had ready access to a launch monitor I'd find myself using it, eventually, to fit myself for glove, shoes and tees. I'm a golf-nerd who doesn't know when to stop.

I'd wait a few years before handing over that cigar.   :lol:

I confess that I do not practice near enough. I also confess that I'm an idiot who prefers to hit the cool shot that makes me look like a "player" than the smart one. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it screws me.

 

A prime example is the soul sucking 86 filled with bad decisions this passed Sunday. Saterday, one day earlier, I shot 68 and had it all "figured out."

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I learned slowly to get over my ego after aging. I am straighter than ever I think that is due to age finally slowing down my fast hands. But I am shorter but everyone says I am long for my age. I hit the driver about 250 at sea level now with roll out. I don't practice enough to be as good as I once was but have learned to accept it and plod along. But with age comes wisdom and my course management skills have improved. I putt ok and have to remind myself that I don't practice putting 2 or 3 hours everyday like I used to. But I put it in perspective I am physically able to play whenever I can and that says a lot. I know folks my age and a little older that are not able to play for health reasons. So now I am thankful for every day that I am able to get out and play and my screw up don't bother me that much any more
