Well today was something. Perfect coastal day, no wind overcast 65*. Greens were still recovering from being punched so they were pretty bumpy. 

For those of you who haven’t gotten the pleasure of playing Spyglass, it’s a beast. And today that beast ate my putting stroke on the 3rd hole. I held it off for a little bit but it had lunch on my short game on the 8th. But it saved it’s best for the main course. It devoured my entire golf game on the 12th hole. I couldn’t find the club face for the rest of the round, entirely gone throughout my swing. 8 over on last 7. 

Still was an incredible weekend!!60D10D25-75AA-4006-AA45-1179C409B037.thumb.jpeg.2660274d5e1f12ecf86217862cd52e14.jpeg3DD50D46-E579-4677-A9A0-0E1DA343FE81.thumb.jpeg.e554b63f07f245fd4ad5a0b423b9dfc8.jpeg1384CB57-4E2C-4EDB-B404-587E92904252.thumb.jpeg.d5f76a28521400541a3c7cbd89f8ca97.jpeg87A4D1C2-7711-4A73-A299-A4F83FB1F78A.thumb.jpeg.a57f57252b878926de031a8f4e074515.jpeg8EEE04F7-8281-4D76-874C-EFB2AF7C8197.thumb.jpeg.edcfb5557a205f54cdf83c2358e5ff68.jpeg20A6A4AB-0482-43CE-A136-041038835325.thumb.jpeg.0d8f49bdb3f95ada4f3e982933be6992.jpegC95C07D4-8CF5-4C74-9B09-FACAC0B8F4DB.thumb.jpeg.8f3573869aab5c89a88ae6fd35c3f2a6.jpeg8EBDE3FF-2515-483C-BC67-3DDFBDB4D52E.thumb.jpeg.c1106cced5e4d47a0b55bdb8c5327d68.jpeg6944BA31-2E6E-4C7F-9ACB-C27A2EB318E2.thumb.jpeg.6e0fa0594f8dce8e844b3b60d055331f.jpeg87DE9F4E-33D3-4CF5-8D04-A4C694033F5B.thumb.jpeg.a1a7fefb77b1b5f5e784907eaa738532.jpegF35617F2-5A95-4B7E-BA55-38001247D128.thumb.jpeg.3596e537d8a2aaf61df90093148402ba.jpegC9AE4DD1-5B73-4565-9742-92168C36BE30.thumb.jpeg.b65378761d285def18e9fb97a1dcef22.jpegD610B3BC-0F48-4F65-84ED-AC4E8DB209FC.thumb.jpeg.41a7b84d4ca20cde6be1b14918e5cc4a.jpeg0C548F29-673D-4177-879F-2B45D8329172.thumb.jpeg.4be6d35f8117dd324e10df23566009f2.jpeg

After a bad night sleep, my back was killing me. Couldn't turn, so my swing was all arms pulling shots. Lost 3 balls in the first 3 holes and gave up and went home lol

So that's how Tiger must have felt with a stiff back 🤣

I figure this is as good a place as any to put this. Have any of you seriously considered giving up this game? I am there right now. I have gone from a solid single digit to.... I have no idea.

I can't hit a ball with anything.... driver, irons or wedges. Everything I hit is almost cut in half with the bottom of the club. This has gone on for at least the last 6 rounds I've played. This is not fun or enjoyable... at all. I have lost 30 lbs. over the Winter. I can't find a swing to save my life. The game I love has become something to despise/fear. I'm not sure how much longer I can keep going like this before I just quit. 

 

Have any of you ever been where I am? What did you do? How did you fix it?

Sorry to hear that you are going through this, and yes, I was there.  I'm sure we have all been there to some extent.  Good job on losing 30 lbs.  Did you work to do it, or did you lose it naturally over time?  Probably better discussed in another thread, but since you asked... 

That change over the winter while you weren't playing on a daily basis certainly could have had an impact on your swing.  Your flexibility has changed (for the better probably).  Your rhythm and timing has changed, which can also affect your tempo.  Yes, rhythm and tempo are different, and it doesn't take much to throw them off.  If you had been playing while losing the weight, the effect would probably not be an issue.  I know from reading your posts that you are a pretty strong guy, but the layoff and the weight loss probably affected your "golf strength" too.

I see two options (but I'm not a professional, so take it for what it's worth):  

  1. Have a good steak, eat lots of carbs, drink lots of beer, and gain the weight back so your swing matches your old body again, or
  2. Accept that your swing needs an overhaul, and put in the time to make it happen.

Personally, while the first option has a lot of appeal, I would prefer to keep the 30 lbs off (I'm so envious) and accept the second option as a challenge.  Don't quit, but don't play golf for awhile.  IMO, you need to start with relearning your swing mechanics with your new body.  It may be that you will need a lesson to get you started on the right track, but start with slow half swings to get the feel of how your body reacts, and get a feel for the club setting in the backswing and releasing in the followthrough.  Hit a 7i less than 100 yards taking club to parallel on the backswing and parallel on the followthrough.  Don't worry about where the ball goes; you are "feeling" the club again.  Keep it up!  If you go out and play while doing this, your recovery will take longer.  As you become more proficient at this drill, take the club back until lead arm is parallel and repeat.  As you get better, increase speed a little.  If you get worse, go back a step.

This is not something that you will fix overnight, so don't get discouraged.  You have to retrain your body to make the correct moves again.  The good news is this practice also will improve your short game pitches/chips.  If you accept the challenge and put in the time, I'll bet that you will see a gain in distance with less stress on your body when you get your full swing back.  You may even see better distance with half swings than with your old full swing.  Give it a shot... if you love the game.  I hope you get to a better point in golf and your life soon.   Stick around... I enjoy your thoughts on this forum.

Played on Saturday with nice 88 degrees weather, perfect for walking(push cart),  lets say that the range session before the round was ok, but the Front 9 was garbage. Worse putting , greens were fast but i couldn't adjust correctly. 46 in the front with 20 PUTTs. Ridiculous.
Made the turn, and all of a sudden, drives were crisp, irons, wedges on point, Putting was back to normal, finish the back 9 at 38. with only 15 putts. 
Moral of the story , don't give up your round, it may come around the way you expected it to be. Now the trick is to remember everything that went right on the back 9 and repeat it next week. LOL

Where did you play? And 15 putts sounds about right for you. Probably drained three 20 footers on the back.

 Played at Woodbridge, greens are really starting to speed up there.

I missed alot of make able putts in the front , blasting them back and forth. I had 4 x 3 Putts. which you can score with that.
Then I was making 3, 5, 10 footers in the back with no problem. I was dialed in with irons and wedges so I was never too far from the hole. Makes putting alot easier.
If I would have putted normally in the Front, that could have been another 12-15 Putts in the instead of 20.

There are some short holes that you have to hit iron of and take away the driver.
#3 , Par 5, but you can reach the creek with driver, since the ball rolls there and it can run for 100yds into the creek.
#5 tight landing area, 3wood or iron of the tee , leaves you with 7 or 8 iron in to slow down green .
#8 is one of the short holes only 304yds, but you have to work the ball around the bend right to left, bring water in to play real quick. Relative easy hole, but because is easy, people make big number there.
#12 is a good hole, blind shot over the bunker landing area then over the creek into the green
#13 was a great hole, but now that the tree new the green has fallen its an easy green to hit in 2 , the Tree made the whole difficult because you had to hit it high to get over it and the green became small (optical illusion)
#16 is tough par 3, 178yds into a thin vertical green , that too much spin you off the green into the water , too much club your over the green into the forest.
#17 is the other short hole its only 290yds but you have to work the ball right to left, to much left your in the creek, too much right your in the other creek.and If you try to go over the tree in front to cut the corner you best be straight, bunker waiting for you and if you are over, the green goes away from you and you will have a hard time getting it close.
#18 to me is deceiving long, 428yds, but it feels like you are always into the wind, making the approach shot over the creek a little more challenging.

The challenging thing at WoodBridge are the greens, fast, slope and if you are in the wrong side, 3 putts are in your future.

I was lucky and got to play twice.  The first round was on a course that I am familiar course and would call my home course.  Went out in 35 (-1) after opening the round with a double, which I wasn't too upset about.  I then birdied two of the first three holes on the back and thought that I was on a role.  Then came the 13th and 15th hole where I made bogey from less than 100y.  Talk about stellar play.  I was a bit frustrated and unleashed on a drive on 16, 17, and 18.  Ended up having a greenside pitch on 16 that finished about 4 feet, then a 2 footer on 17 after pitching from 40y.  Making those putts really charged me, and after hitting a good drive on 18, I had 208y on 18 with the wind behind.  Ended up putting 6 feet, but overplayed the break.  Finishing with three birdies helped me get to 68 (-4) and be the low round in my group.

I ended up playing the other course in my town on Sunday.  The greens run about 2 feet faster but have very slight undulations.  It takes a lot of course knowledge to know how to putt these greens.  Where I had 29 putts on Saturday, I couldn't make anything on Sunday and finished with 34 putts.  I have now played this course 4 or 5 times now, so I think I need to play it a lot more.  It also didn't help that when I played the course 10 days prior, the greens were very firm, so all approach shots had to be landed on the front or just short.  The greens must have been watered a good bit because the ball was not bounding forward and a few shots were spinning back quite a bit.  I didn't adjust well as I kept expecting to come to a green that was firm.  This all resulted in me shooting 74 (+2).  So be it, I will have to go out and try again.  I better adjust or I won't get good results.

I figure this is as good a place as any to put this. Have any of you seriously considered giving up this game? I am there right now. I have gone from a solid single digit to.... I have no idea.

I can't hit a ball with anything.... driver, irons or wedges. Everything I hit is almost cut in half with the bottom of the club. This has gone on for at least the last 6 rounds I've played. This is not fun or enjoyable... at all. I have lost 30 lbs. over the Winter. I can't find a swing to save my life. The game I love has become something to despise/fear. I'm not sure how much longer I can keep going like this before I just quit. 

 

Have any of you ever been where I am? What did you do? How did you fix it?

Damn that sounds serious.

I've never been to single digits, so probably not much comfort for you. But a few years ago I did think about quitting. My wife and I started playing together, around the 4th or 5th year, she quickly went down to about -11, playing for a women's team, etc... and I was still stuck at -20 something.

So I threw my bad in the basement and didn't touch it for like 3 months. I tried other hobbies such as paintball, tennis, but none brought the enjoyment or frustration that golf gave me. I also missed playing together with my wife and the friends I've met on the course. So instead of changing my game, I changed my attitude and don't care about it as much.

But you and I are playing at different levels, so I guess the frustration is different as well.

Did your swing change with the weight loss? I would kill to lose 30lbs right now... I got a few extra pounds and I'm already starting to notice a stiff lower back on bad days.

Sometimes a hard reset helps... like not playing through the winter. Once spring comes, it feels like all my swing flaws are gone... haha...

Don't give up, we are here for you!

Closed with a sloppy bogie on 18 for an even par round to start the year.

You suck 🤣 just kidding. Gratz on the eagle!

I also love finishing a round before 10am. Sacrifice a little bit of sleep, but well worth the free time you have for the rest of the day!

Well today was something. Perfect coastal day, no wind overcast 65*. Greens were still recovering from being punched so they were pretty bumpy. 

For those of you who haven’t gotten the pleasure of playing Spyglass, it’s a beast. And today that beast ate my putting stroke on the 3rd hole. I held it off for a little bit but it had lunch on my short game on the 8th. But it saved it’s best for the main course. It devoured my entire golf game on the 12th hole. I couldn’t find the club face for the rest of the round, entirely gone throughout my swing. 8 over on last 7. 

Still was an incredible weekend!!60D10D25-75AA-4006-AA45-1179C409B037.thumb.jpeg.2660274d5e1f12ecf86217862cd52e14.jpeg3DD50D46-E579-4677-A9A0-0E1DA343FE81.thumb.jpeg.e554b63f07f245fd4ad5a0b423b9dfc8.jpeg1384CB57-4E2C-4EDB-B404-587E92904252.thumb.jpeg.d5f76a28521400541a3c7cbd89f8ca97.jpeg87A4D1C2-7711-4A73-A299-A4F83FB1F78A.thumb.jpeg.a57f57252b878926de031a8f4e074515.jpeg8EEE04F7-8281-4D76-874C-EFB2AF7C8197.thumb.jpeg.edcfb5557a205f54cdf83c2358e5ff68.jpeg20A6A4AB-0482-43CE-A136-041038835325.thumb.jpeg.0d8f49bdb3f95ada4f3e982933be6992.jpegC95C07D4-8CF5-4C74-9B09-FACAC0B8F4DB.thumb.jpeg.8f3573869aab5c89a88ae6fd35c3f2a6.jpeg8EBDE3FF-2515-483C-BC67-3DDFBDB4D52E.thumb.jpeg.c1106cced5e4d47a0b55bdb8c5327d68.jpeg6944BA31-2E6E-4C7F-9ACB-C27A2EB318E2.thumb.jpeg.6e0fa0594f8dce8e844b3b60d055331f.jpeg87DE9F4E-33D3-4CF5-8D04-A4C694033F5B.thumb.jpeg.a1a7fefb77b1b5f5e784907eaa738532.jpegF35617F2-5A95-4B7E-BA55-38001247D128.thumb.jpeg.3596e537d8a2aaf61df90093148402ba.jpegC9AE4DD1-5B73-4565-9742-92168C36BE30.thumb.jpeg.b65378761d285def18e9fb97a1dcef22.jpegD610B3BC-0F48-4F65-84ED-AC4E8DB209FC.thumb.jpeg.41a7b84d4ca20cde6be1b14918e5cc4a.jpeg0C548F29-673D-4177-879F-2B45D8329172.thumb.jpeg.4be6d35f8117dd324e10df23566009f2.jpeg

I have been there where you are...but I'm no swing coach...I think you will fight through this and become a better player on the other side. Hang in there Bro!
