Holy crap my game is fussy!!!

Played today at Innisbrook and had my worst 9 holes in recent memory. I was playing a former college golfer for a $30 Nassau.

Front nine just stunk and it was a comedy of errors. The worst was the 550 yard par 5. Driver shot clips a tree but is ok. I am left with 320 yards to the hole and have to keep the ball down. Lay-up clips a branch and now I have 160 yards to the hole.

Hit an 8 iron which hits the green but hops off the back into a bunker.

1st bunker swing fat. 2nd bunker shot bladed over the green. Fairly straight forward chip shot fat. Then chip shot to 2 feet. Tap in for an 8!

Shot 46 on the front and 39 on the back. Sometimes golf sucks and so do I.

I clearly need my PXG irons- they arrive on Friday.

My last round was 85 also but I didn't throw a hissy fit over it. Looks like you're gonna need some help when you get to Merion in 3 weeks. I'll be waiting at the bag drop for you dressed to play when you friend asks me to join you guys ;)

Sounds good to me. You never know when someone might drop out.
It's not the 85 so much as how I shot the 85. My swing feels great. I have a lot of confidence that I am going to score fairly low and I am trying my darndest to lower my handicap a couple of points. Prior to the round at the range it was a good warm-up and then my game went AWOL for the first 10 holes. On top of that I lost $100 to the guy I was playing against. Just pissed that I choked.

As Eric and I will attest... we are just thrilled it only took you 2 strokes to get out of the bunker! Well done LL.

We just need to focus on the positives.

Oh that was bad!!! My last couple of rounds my bunker play has been terrible and without the built in excuse of having my Ball plugged under the lip of the bunker.
Yesterday I had two perfectly placed bunker shots and performed horribly on them.

The most frustrating game ever created.

I just my second straight round under 100. Coming along slowly.
