I'd rather blame the equipment.
I don't mind blaming the equipment.
Last Thursday we played Crooked Hollow just outside of Shreveport. On the front nine all 7 of my drives went into the rough, lost 3 balls.
At the turn I told my partner "Hell, I'll just use my 3 wood off the tee." On the back nine all 7 of my tee shots hit dead center of the fairway.
Partner: "Well, Zach, does that mean you'll never use a driver again?"
Me: "Oh, I'll use it again. But I'm not gonna give that POS 7 chances before I switch clubs"
