    When you shank your bread and butter wedge OB right on the first hole after your drive leaves you 100yds to the pin.

    True story - happened to me this morning. It’s a long day...

    Lol. Yep, happened to me a couple of years ago on 2nd hole while playing with some old friends. I was literally scared to death the rest of the round to hit a partial wedge shot to any green. I duct taped the issue for the rest of that round and thought I had overcome it, but nope...it got worse and worse...I even started shanking chips for a while. Took a long time to put it in remission.

    Yup - that pretty much describes the rest of the round. Wedges caught fat, shanking or flubbing chips. My drives and approaches were ok. It was a short course, but I kept leaving myself 130/140 in to avoid my wedges after the front 9. Not too worried yet as I've just come out of winter hibernation, but it does mess with my head.

    Yep. Just be careful that you don’t let what happened to me happen to you. I had been shanking the occasional iron shot on the range, and was definitely shanking my share of wedges on the range. They weren’t full-on shanks yet...just these low and left “squirters” (I’m a lefty). But I would find some “fix” and it would go away for 10 shots but then come back. Anyway, just thought it was weird. But I shanked that wedge shot in front of my old buddies dead left and panicked.

    I tried to fix it but had only band-aided it. About 6 months later I was practicing chipping and cold shanked a chip. Thought “Wait, what?” Did it again and again. I tried to “fix” it but couldn’t. I tried 1 or 2 chips that round, shanked them, and decided I had to putt from off the green the rest of the round.

    At that point I had shanks with just about every part of my game. Took a few months and some lessons to get it out of my system. I’m “in remission” right now, and hope to God that it doesn’t happen again...ever!

    Just look for the warning signs, and if they are there fix it ASAP! 😬

    when you practiced for a half hour before your tee time,and watched a guy down the range,cursing,
    throwing clubs,and slamming them against the bag. Arriving on the first tee,guess who shows up to be paired up with you.

    You are at the furthest point on the course from the clubhouse in the weekly competition, the rain is horizontal, you don't care about your score and are ready to call it a day and your playing partner who has less of a score says "I can see a break in the clouds and I always score much better on the back nine!"

  • caniac6caniac6 Members Posts: 2,892 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    We have two tee times, only five show up, and the guy that gets the tee times says, "lets play five". This has been happening more frequently, and the other day I just played the back by myself.

    yesterday. on the first nine, caught every tee shot low on the face. couldn't figure out why.
    bad enough we had a three club wind to deal with. made my brain explode.
    long irons were just as uncooperative.
    left the bag , sticks uncleaned, in the truck overnight to teach them a lesson.
    might not talk to them again for days.

    When you hit a perfect drive up the centre but cannot find it so go back hit a provisional ,declare first ball lost only to see it snuggled up against the white sprinkler hose on the fairway when looking back after hitting second shot with second ball.

    In a league when you get to the first tee and your opponent's (who is listed as an 18 H/C) first words are... I. Playing so bad I'm ready to give up the game and sell my clubs...

    After playing your second shot you look up to see your playing partner 1) isn't yet at their ball 2) has had no discussion with their caddy about yardages/club selection and waits until all of the above has happened before putting their glove on.

    When you're paired with a guy that's drunk at 7 am.
    He insists that you drive the cart, and he has a jug of bloody mary, is burping and farting, and there is a roll of toilet paper in the dash on his side of the cart.

    Not me, but I saw this.
