I played in a tournament this past Saturday. First of all I would like to give a shout out to the Titleist Ball Fitting crew that was on site spreading the good word about Titleist Balls. Got a chance to chat with one of the reps about the new Pro V1 which was really cool.
It was all downhill from there. I played my worst round ever which was soul crushing. Everything that could go wrong was going wrong. Shanks off the tee, lost balls when everyone in my group saw where the ball landed, when I was able to hit the fairway my ball would always rest in a deep divot, and tons of lip outs on the green. Needless to say I wanted to pick up and call it a day after the front nine. I decided to soldier on and carded my worst round in recent memory.
Anyone have any tips on how to recover from a terrible round? I'm planning on getting a lesson before I play again but part of me just wants to go to the range and hit balls. I'm afraid doing so will just strengthen any bad habits I currently have. Also I'm pretty discouraged right now. This game is very humbling and I was left a shell of a man at the end of this round.
