Recurring Golf Dreams?

Who else dreams about golf? Not just daydreaming, actual night dreaming. Besides replaying the shots from that day's round, I have this one specific dream that keeps coming back to me:

 

I'm in the rough setting up for a delicate-but-manageable 40y pitch over a bunker to the green. The ball is sitting down in a patchy, crabgrass lie. I've got my 60* in hand and there's a bunch of people from my life watching in the gallery. The gallery is closer than they should be and right in front of my setup.

 

I set up to the ball, wiggle, adjust, wiggle, adjust, wiggle, adjust some more, realign, wiggle, then pull the club back for a backstroke and stop my swing then step away. No matter how many times I reset and realign, I can't pull the trigger and actually hit the shot. If it's not uncertainty over the shot, an outside force like a camera shutter or bird causes me to back off the shot. I can feel the timer ticking and get more tense every time I step up even if I'm telling myself "this time I'm hitting it no matter what!"

 

This repeats until I wake up. I'm not panicked when I wake up but I certainly wake up well before the alarm. I can get back to sleep and won't have that dream again that night but I know it'll come back another day.

 

 

 

 

 

I don't generally have issues with this on the course. My routine is deliberate and I only step off if I feel like I'm grossly out of alignment. I'd be lying if I said this dream doesn't cross my mind as I prep the shot when I get into especially sticky situations.

 

I know this isn't the typical "winning the Master's" dream but I thought I'd share it in case other members have something similar.

Dreams or nightmares. LOL

 

I certainlu do. I have a common reoccurring one about missing a tournament tee time.

 

But the most frequent and scary is. I'm on a tee box that is complefely cramped with trees, tables etc. Lots of things that prohibit me from taking a natural stance and impossible to make a swing.

 

I adjust over and over but can never get a shot off. Then I usually wake up.

 

OK bring on the psychological analysis.

I know so much so I rarely sleep well the night before a big or tournament round.

Whoa. So "unable to hit" is a thing then. We've just got different reasons keeping us from making the swing.

 

 

Now what's the reason we keep having the dream? It's gotta be something in our normal life right?

I dream of golf quite often because the night before the round I usually go to sleep while playing each shot on each hole in my head to perfection. Hardly made it all the way thru 18 holes. This is a big reason why I usual do well in the front nine.

 

I once dreamt of playing at the players tournament Sunday round tie for the lead just eagle the 16th put 3 shots in the water at 17th.

I can honestly say I've never had a dream about golf while sleeping. But I've lived a few out on the course.

Likewise, I have never had a golf dream.   Even though I have aged, there are still other activities about which I continue to dream.   Remember, one knows one is old when their f@rts are wet and their dreams are dry.

 

But I did dream that the "Hoos" beat Duke followed by a win over the Tarheels and I don't want to wake up.

I'm with Plaid on this..I' don't think I've ever dreamed about golf, golfing in a tournament, playing a course like Augusta National etc...I can't say I've lived the dream on the course yet either...well except for maybe breaking 80 a few times (and I mean just a few times...lol)

I had a golf dream a couple nights ago. I was playing hole 10 at some unknown course. Steep downhill par 4, sharp dogleg right. Fairway sloped severely right to left. For some reason, in this dream, I played that hole twice. Both times, I left my tee shot out to the left and into a rock bed. Both times I hit a great recovery shot right at the pin. Both times it rolled over the green. I think I made par once and bogey once. That's all that happened. Kind of a low-key dream.

I had a weird one last night.

 

I was playing hole 1 of a course I've played 1000 times. It went into this ditch filled with rocks that runs across the fairway just short of the green (this doesn't even exist in the real life course) with 2 separate hazards in it. 1 red hazard at the bottom along a little Creek and 1 "blue" hazard that ran up to the top of the ditch on either side.

 

My ball was lodged in the rocks within the blue hazard. I guess this was a tournament because my playing partners and I debated the rules until rules officials came out then we debated the ruling for the whole rest of the dream until I woke up.

 

 

The weird thing is, I kept feeling that clock tick and tick as groups behind us were getting irritated but we could never get to a decision on what the ruling was.

 

 

It was a blue hazard for Christ's sake, everyone knows what to do in those situations right?🤪

I hate to bump this thread, since it's not even Thursday, but I had a really vivid dream last night that Austin Cook won the 2018 Masters by 7 shots. I have no idea where that one came from. Still not convinced enough to pick him for my fantasy team, but if he wins, that would be something else!

Yeah, I've had dreams, usually before rounds of how good that round was going to be... turns out my dreams never play out in reality, at least not yet.
