seems to work that way. you just have those rounds where the wind takes your drive OB and the putts dont seem to want to stay in the chains. As frustrating as it is, you eventually will hit that long putt or park one right underneath the basket which makes you completely forget about your bad rounds and keeps you playing for more.
thats the truth!
usually when I have a really crappy game I'll stop at the 9th hole. I figure I play about 6 times a week, so leaving early one day isn't too bad. Otherwise I tend to go so frustrated I end up playing even worse.
I had a day like this on Sunday. Granted, the winds were 20 mph and I was playing on a REALLY tough couse, but I couldn't drop any putts, couldn't get any approaches near the basket around 100 ft, Couldn't find the fairway from 300 away....all sorts of problems. I totally exploded, and finished the last 8 holes or so in total anguish. After the 18th, I putted for a while, calmed down, and played another 10, this time trying to focus on each shot, and only each shot.
Let's share all of our recent bad rounds to make donromer feel better, shall we? On my last league I shot +18 on a calm day, with my handicap at 19(24-hole course). Every putt for par would hit metal but wouldn't drop. I had one drive land an inch out of bounds, and got a disc stuck in a tree on the ONE hole where the 2 meter rule applies. That was fun because playing on the league is always fun, but damn what a rough round.

i played a tourny this weekend, 1 day, 2 rounds at a pretty tough course. +17 for the first and +18 for the second(20 holes, but still). it really showed me where i need to improve my game. i need a sidearm bad. and putting of course
last day I got to play (3 rounds) I shot two +5's and a 0 (average score lately has been a -2, the best being a -6) almost every putt I should have made was an embarassing miss. wasnt even all that windy, just one of the bad days.
I havn't had a bad round lately. I keep having real good opening holes from the pros and then the last five holes I just go to shit and end up finishing bogey, bogey, double, bogey, bogey. Damn it! I hate you last five holes.
