Pretty sure it's between the ears, so as a swing coach, I don't know that he could help.

If you figure out how to easily solve that problem let me know. I occasionally have that issue crop up after a terrible hole. Generally it takes me 2 - 3 holes to get my head straight (figurately speaking).

Had a good couple of days so far this week with a couple of pars both days.  Significant because of getting past this month's affair with Rona, the loss of energy, quarantine isolation and the inactivity of limited quarters.  First golf round was Friday playing 18 with a 60 and 54 and not a single par, still feeling I was in recovery mode.  Saturday we moved son back to his college apartment on a hot day like the Queenstown Harbor weekend, had countless repetitions of climbing to the 3rd floor carrying 2 vehicle loads of his stuff kicked Rona to the curb.  Played 9's on Monday 👇 8.22 for 49 with sun showers at South Park GC

and 👇 Tuesday 8.23 for 51 with this beauty that flew 130 yards over Cazenovia Creek to feet from the pin at my home course Cazenovia GC. 1422193070_8_23.20223rdgreendrive(2).JPG.1bd57eb6c5e852350e7d095833e467c2.JPG

Definitely feeing back to "normal" and regaining control with the club and distance with the swing.  

I'm glad you're feeling better and able to get back on the course. It's good to get out and get moving around in order to get your stamina back.

Lost: one golf swing

Last seen about 2 weeks ago at Windmill Lakes Golf Club, Ravenna Ohio. If found, please return as I'd actually like to hit the ball.

The work round of golf I've played in I don't know how long. I could not hit the ball, with the exception of par 3 off the tee,  less than 100 yards and in and putts.

Everything was cold topped and I was lifting with no idea why it was happening.

Whenever I don't get out for a while, and always at the beginning of the season here, for me if I am swinging/hitting some clubs better than others, I may just go and play a course with irons or whatever clubs that are working without any worries about score or distance just to get timing and rhythm back where it belongs.

 

Here's hoping that you get whatever the issues is resolved, and get back to having fun and scoring well.

Last night was our final "official" league night - the championship and last place were determined (in our league, last place gets the honor of planning the next season's fall outing). That means half the teams had nothing to play for and we were just having fun. The fourth and fifth holes bit me pretty hard - I was +5 on those two holes and +3 on the remaining 7. The triple on 4 involved a plugged lie in the face of a bunker - I had to aim pretty far away from the flag to find an area of the lip I thought I could get over. I got it out first try, but just barely (or so I'm told - my eyes were closed due to the amount of sand flying). A chip and a 3-putt and the numbers add up fast. Ironically, I won long drive on that hole, so it took me 6 strokes to get down from ~130 in the fairway with no penalties 🤦‍♂️. On 5, I was in another bunker and the sand in this one was pretty damp, so I decided to try to pick it clean. Of course, I skulled it across the green. Another chip and 2 putts for double.

Those two holes kind of stung, but looking back at it, I was actually hitting the ball pretty well and am fairly happy with my game right now. It seems to happen like this every year - as fall approaches, I feel pretty good about my game, then put down the clubs through winter and I feel like I am starting all over in the spring. I really need to move somewhere I can play year round, or at least move to a place that has enough head room to swing in the garage or basement.

The only other minor issue was short game. The greens were very soft due to all the rain we've had recently and my brain is still calibrated to spin/rollout for dry, fast greens, so too many chips were left too far away to reasonably expect a 1-putt.

I also won one of the closest to the pin holes. A 9 iron right over the top of the flag on the 9th. The putt was on line but stopped about 1 revolution short on the birdie putt.

EDIT: It just occurred to me I have played the same ball for somewhere north of 36 holes. I put this one in play the last time I was out with @DiscipleofPenick and have 4 league rounds on it. This HAS to be some kind of record for me. Pretty sure I just jinxed myself.

Have someone take a video and send it to Tom. He fixed me up pretty quick with a very simple thought. You definitely need to figure something out before your trip!

I might try and go to the range the weekend after this one and do a little filming.

If you had been playing a new ball, it would have made one more revolution.  You're welcome. 😂
