Played 9 holes this morning in the rain after 27 holes yesterday in our member guest. Hitting it well all around and had one of the best days in the greens yesterday that I have had in years. Went back to old shafts in my driver and 3 wood and it was like meeting some old friends. Not sure why I was ever convinced to take either of them out of the bag.

The Tale of 2 Chads

... I got paired up with 2 Chads yesterday. One had his wife riding in the cart for company, the other just playing 9 and also in a cart. This is an equipment story as they both played some horrible golf shots. Chad 1 riding with his wife hit some really good shots and some really bad shots. He was playing new RTX wedges and I have never seen a decent player hit his wedges so poorly. Perfect example is on a par 5 we were both short of the green and I had 74 yds into a very strong wind and hit an aggressive 3/4 54* wedge to about 6 feet. Chad had about 10 yds less so 65yds into the strong wind. He basically scooped his wedge about 25 yds, just floating it up and into that wind so it just died. He hit his next shot just like the first shot and was now 5 yds short of the bunker. He chucked his next wedge into the bunker, then hit it fat moving forward then rolling back off the lip and finally bladed the next one over the green and into a lake. He threw his wedge about 40 yds back into the fairway and asked his wife if she could please take the cart and get it for him while he smoothed the bunker with his feet. To her credit she simply said "No."  This was his worst hole but struggled all day with his wedge and the outburst was very uncharacteristic of his demeanor. On the next tee said "These are new wedges and just way too light, so my short game is off today and I apologize for throwing one of them." He then proceeded to hit 3 balls in the water on #9. 

... Chad 2 certainly understood as he was playing brand new irons for the very first time (did not look unhit) and this was the 9th tee box and his last hole. I have never played with a more clueless guy as I never knew when he was gonna hit a shot and never knew where it was going to go. 4 or 5 shanks, some wild hooks AND slices along with fat and thin shots. My guess is he shout around 70 for 9 holes and unbelievably he blamed his poor play on his new irons, so he certainly understood what Chad 1 was going through. Again a guess but between the two of them they lost about 20 balls, and chad 1 kept breaking out new ProV1's. 

... Not sure how I hit the lottery with 2 really bad players blaming their poor play on their clubs but thankfully I have found this to be very rare to be paired up with one. 

Oh boy that’s a fun 9 holes. Congratulations to wife for not getting the “baby” his club after the tantrum.
Like you said it doesn’t happen often. I had a “guy” couple weeks ago so know the feeling.

When I'm having a bad wedge day, I hit my wedges like Chad 1. But i don't get mad or have fits though.

I never was that bad, but I definitely used to have more of a temper when playing poorly. Golf isn't one of those sports though where anger gets you any further, if anything I get tighter and play worse. One of the keys to my scores improving over the past two years has been to mentally let go of a shot after I hit it, and focus on the next one.

Now, that doesn't stop me from very often quietly going, "Cody, that was s---," in my follow through after hitting a poor shot and reminding myself to hit better shots, hahahaha.

@chisag - I feel like the odds of two random singles having similar attitudes are very small. You definitely hit the tee time lottery.

We’ll my caddytek pushcart didn’t come in time for my round (was on hole 10 when it did FYI) but walked 15 and headed off after 4 hours so didn’t quite finish but that’s ok plenty of more holes to come this week.
it was an interesting day. I had a 3 hole stretch where I am not sure what I was doing. I had wedge shots that just went directly right. Open face, toed and just awful swings. Was also doing the same thing with one of my safest clubs being my 2H. I ended up picking up for an 8 which I have not done in probabky 2 years. 
settled down thank goodness and played well. 7 pars  4 bogeys and 4 double+. I I finished the last 3 holes with what I normally would shoot I would have finished 87. Not bad for an 8 and 4 penalties. Can’t wait for Tuesday 
Highlight hole:
