I suck at golf!

Recommended Posts

Yes.... yes I do suck at golf! I just shot 47 on the first night of league. The putter might as well have been a sledge hammer. Oh well.... next Wednesday is coming!

With you on this, lol. Shot a 46 in League. Not really worried about the score as it was my first league outing. What mattered to me was that I spent time with some good buddies - Carolina Golfer 2 and a buddy from another online forum.

I had a great time. The weather was nice, the guys I played with were great.... I just had a lousy evening of golf. I'm not a good player, but I'm not that bad either....lol. Next week will probably bring a different result.... thats golf.

My brother and I spent Easter with some family in Georgia.  Played Harbor club at lake Oconee.  In 18 holes I had more 3 putts than I did all of last year (not really).  It was the first time that I couldn't "figure out" the greens by the end of a round.  Speed was solid after 3 or 4 holes but I saw breaks that weren't there, and there were plenty I didn't see.  I ended up attempting to ram in 5 footers to take out the break but was severely punished on misses due to the greens rolling like they were concrete.  Made me realize that when away from the type of greens in Ohio  I really suck at putting.  It was fun though, and I beat my brother :)

I really wish my muscle memory didn't have dementia... Ha ha ha. One day I'm hitting wedges great for me, then out on the course blade or chunk it after hitting a great drive. Nothing more frustrating then shooting a 97 that could of been low to mid 80s if I didn't hack my approach shots to the green...

So... if you don't hack your approach shots, would that mean you have to change your name??   :D

I mentally reviewed my round. It was a mixed round for me. Driver was up and down (I did get a few lucky breaks, one of which turned a draw/hook looking like it was going OB into a fairway hit - no one saw or heard it hit a tree or wooden marker, but there it was smack in the middle of the fairway!) irons came back to life (my Mizunos must of heard they were on the chopping block, potentially being replaced by AP2s, Cf16s, Pings or Srixons)... Wedges, which have been very problematic the last 5 rounds started working again. Even the putter was decent tonight. Starting to enjoy this game again ;)

I was a decent player in HS and kept it up for a bit after that but in 2002 or so, I got to the point where I was not ok with being "average". If I couldn't go out and stay sharp, I had no interest in playing so I played maybe once every two or three years, socially but that was it. I was just way too competitive to enjoy golf.

Cut to January of this year and maybe it was the weather, maybe it was having a 1 year old and wanting to escape the house but the golf bug bit me like a horsefly on my taint! Something snapped and all of a sudden, walking a course for hours by myself became the most wonderful and relaxing thing in the world. I'm back to obsessive practice and hope to get my handicap under 5 by the summer but if I don't, it's ok. As long as I can avoid my family I'm a happy man!  :D

If you haven't thought of giving up every few years, you don't care enough. Wanting to give up is part of the cycle.

Then I must be prepping for next years Masters. :(

Shot a 101. There I said it. And it felt like I shot a 101 :(. The driver had the hooks, I kept on blading 90 yard approach shots, missed easy par or birdie putts, and had terrible sand shots all day. I'm pretty sure my Handicap has broken into the 20s after today's round. Time to regroup and review my round...

4 double bogies on the round. Caused by chunked iron followed by fat pitch , water hazard, fat shot in fairway bunker followed by thinned chip, and OB tee shot.

But acknowledging you suck at some aspect of your game can be viewed as negative but can also be constructive.

 

My post was about sucking at the short game and fairway bunkers and how they lead to blowup holes for me.

Yep it does good to vent. While I explained to my wife how I played, all I got back was the blank stare and she's a casual Golfer too, lol.

Yea I'm only 66 now and I can see things getting tougher in a few years. Life is short so sucking on a golf course rates low in the big picture.

Last time out I shot a 102. Driver was squirrels, wedges were chunked and putts were blown by the hole. Still had a blast but man....felt like I would have done better using putter from tee to green...

Last time I was out, I had one of my better rounds. Everything felt great. Today, however, was the opposite. It wasn't fun at all. So I know how you feel. That's the great thing about golf...

I'm a former college golfer, although small college. Today I can shoot anywhere from 71-87. I always hit it good on the range so I never know what will actually happen once I get in the course. The last 2-3 years I hit shots that are mind-numbingly bad. Simple shots that just make me wonder what I'm doing spending money on this game. But alas, I keep going out and playing and practicing. I suck
