Question:Got out for my first full 18 on Saturday and ... well, nothing went right.
First I felt like I was choking my club. Then I had something going on in my upperbody because I was thin on everything. Long irons, hybrids, driver - all horrible! Could nto play out of the bunkers, putting stunk and my short irons were not saving my butt (like the usually do) .
Example: Drive goes left (and short) and I have 145-150 yard shot with a tree in front of me. I can carry the ball over the tree with an 8 but I will have to get it high which would leave me short. A 7 would easily reach but I am not sure if I will get over the tree. I take the 8, hit the top branch less then 3 feet off the top and the ball falls down like a brick.
I wanted to break every club in my bag! On the 18th, knowing I am not driving well and I am short, I rip one and...it splashes down into the pond.
What is the best degree angle to have on a driver in golf?
sounds like a personal problem...

Do you want to hear a Beatles song that will make you feel better.

I read the news today oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph.
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure
If he was from the House of Lords.
I saw a film today oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
but I just had to look
Having read the book.
I'd love to turn you on
Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
Somebody spoke and I went into a dream
I read the news today oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.
I'd love to turn you on

Is there any golf warehouse sales in LA?
Haha... I'm stupid. I didn't see what category this was posted under and I didn't even know what you talking about until towards the end. I thought that you went out for your 18th birthday to a club... and then you used all of this lingo that i thought i must just not be familiar with... then you said something about a ball, which kind of tipped me off to a sport and then the "every club in my bag" gave it away... GOLF.

How much water is required to keep a golf course in tip top condition?
Boy, I know just what you mean. Two weeks ago, draining every putt, hitting it long and straight, 8 pars and 9 bogies and 1 'other'.(I was very happy!)
Yesterday, good shots hitting the cartpath and bouncing the the lake, a perfect 3 wood over the trees of a dog leg only to not find the ball (so it wasn't a perfect shot, I guess), missing 3 putts under 5 feet.
Next week is another day. I've been playing this dern game so long, I can just put it behind me and can't wait for the next time.
Hang in there friend. I'd say it can't get any worse but as every golfer knows, it can...
How do you figure out your handicap.?
ant I know exactly what youre talking about...played a course named Mare Island today its on a closed navy base half hour north east of oakland, half the course is one of the oldest in continous operation west of the mississippi...anyway...first hole up the gut lil 130 out hit to the front 12 from the hole and 3 putt...I was up the middle off the tee most all day but couldnt find a green with a seeing eye dog and gps and a cart partner...so somehow I end up shooting 90...never one putted one green and got 7 birdie looks from inside 10 feet, cashed none of them...grrrrrrrrrrrrrr...If I didnt stop to think that I would have to replace them I would have bent a couple of clubs into pretzels...or at least thrown the putter into the bay...tomorrow is another day ant...we can try it again...
Why golf is so populer?
Yes I had 1 of those days... actually today, yesterday and the day before too! Damn my timing went out and I am unable to hit a clean shot with all the clubs in my bag.
Did feel like breaking it but when I recall how much they have cost me, I just put them gently back, zip up and call it a day.
I'm feeling lousy too pal.
