Had kinda weird day.  In our backyard SWMBO noticed a lot of water/mushy grass bordering our neighbor.  The water was pooling up in the sprinkler head areas for us and our neighbor.  Called my Buddy who had a construction business in NY that primarily did golf course renovations and irrigation.  Him and me tagging along went thru my system zones, replaced a couple sprinkler heads, dug around a little and couldn’t find anything in my side.  We looked at my neighbors heads, not touching anything of his really couldn’t see anything obvious BUT neighbor has a big pool.  Got a hold of him but he wanted his own guy and that’s  OK.  His guy can barely cut grass so this is going to be interesting.  
Unfortunately I missed most of the live Masters telecast as we had to go to another friend 70th birthday.  
My Buddy charge for his help, sleeve of ProV1 he saw in my garage.  
Should be able to watch Masters tomorrow.

I am definitely watching Sunday afternoon ready for it seriously. Phones will be turned off Do Not Disturb Sign on the door Pimento cheese ready boiled peanuts picked up after church and BBQ ready too. Masters Sunday tradition for us rest of the outside world be dammed. Ran a wedding at church yesterday afternoon got everything set up and running. Did cheat some since I was the only one upstairs on the A/V deck and balcony. Used the 3rd computer to live stream the tournament with the headphones on. Well at least one side on the phones. Really the service was a no brainer only two mikes and the piano. Had the Facebook Live computer recording and doing a private stream. The guy over the A/V is a genius and set up all the computer stuff Friday night at the rehearsal he even set up the Masters stream for me. All I had to do computer wise was point and click after powering up. The whole thing lasted on my part only 30 minutes and I was close power down and going home. Did not go to the reception even though I was invited. Our guy over security told someone I was doing as he was going home and watch the Masters. Yep got 10:30 service today the set up will be done on the 8:30 AM service all I have to do is sit down and drive. On the way home I will stop and get my P-Nuts from the local produce stand and to the house I go

It's some tubes hanging down that make a noise like wind chimes is probably the best way I can describe it.

Looks like they need to up the technology.  Half the drivers are probably wearing earbuds 😆.  Maybe it should trigger a set of flashing lights on the bridge sign that is changed to say "stop when flashing"... just a thought.

O2 is the best cure for a hangover. I discovered that in the Army. I worked in a hospital and we had O2 in our biomed shop. 😂

You ever get that feeling of quitting the game??  For whatever reason.  Well I've hit that brick wall right now.  I have lost the desire to play.  My game has gone the way of the Dodo Bird & it's been a complete sh*tshow the last 3 rounds.  Literally to the point where I gave up & didn't play any more, skipped a few holes trying to get my bearings & figure out my swing.  Of course, it didn't help.  I felt embarrassed for the guys that had to watch my game those few days.  I show no signs of my previous ability ... I literally look like I just picked up the game & decided to come out & give it a try on the course.  

Anyone else go thru this?

Oh ya, more times I can remember.  Never did quit but either took short time away and just chipped & putt or played my way thru it.

it sure is a 💩 feeling.

Pretty sure anyone who has played this game has gone through this in some form, I know I have more than once. Couple of days to reset and then starting back at half speed until the feels come back. It works for me almost every time.

I wish you the best of luck working through this. I have had some rounds for sure that make me want to throw my clubs in a lake, but I can usually only play weekly so by Friday I am ready to go back for more punishment.  You can do it for and find that form again.

Yes sir.  I’m still not back to where I was, but I had to change my expectations.  I can still get around the course ok, but nowhere near what I was doing a few years ago in my prime.  I plan to buy a membership at the new place, and I’m 5 ish hours from Bandon… 😍😍😍

Rather than seek out the long ball, I’m just going to revert back to a nice smooth easy swing, I’ll lose some distance sure.  But when I figure out my distances again it will be money.

I was planning on attempting some tournaments and such, but the pressure to hit every shot perfect took the fun out of golf.  I was taking it waaay to seriously.

My advice, take a week off.  Write down why you love the game, then write down things you don’t like.  Remove the dont likes, and focus on the things that you do… no matter what we think/work towards or otherwise we will never be as good as the guys on TV.  So, just be you.  If it’s one of your buddies that is bringing you down, leave him off the group next time…

You will get back to it, because it is ok to get burnt out sometimes. I’ve tried to find an alternative to golf, but nothing touches it. I’m sure you feel the same.  So yeah, end of my rambling.

I'm right in the middle of a spell where I just want to walk away from the game and forget I've ever played it. It's a struggle sometimes to continue to motivate myself to even think about picking up a club. I think that's the nature of the game sometimes. Golf is a game where the highs are high, and the lows sink you in to the putts of despair. That's part of the beauty of the game, too. It's a game we'll never master, but will have those fleeting moments where all is right in the world.

I hope you keep with it, I know it's frustrating but I believe it'll click again and you'll be out there hitting the ball like your old self soon.
