What part of the game do you struggle with the most?
For me it is getting off the tee box. I just started playing again with about a year off from golf. If I could get off the tee box with any consistency I would probably lower my score by 8 strokes.

Chipping by far. However if I hit better approach shots I would not have to chip as much. I once read that the second shot takes more strokes off your game than anything for a high handicapper anyway

Putts from 4-8 feet. I just lose focus for whatever reason.

Driver, no question.

If I hit the driver well, I can play pretty well (depending on how much I’ve been playing). If not, watch out - it can get ugly quickly. It was that way even when I was really good and playing competitively.

If I’m not playing a lot, my pitching and chipping will get away from me, but that usually comes back quickly if I play a bit.

It use to be my strong suit, but I've completely lost my game off the tee. I need to schedule a lesson to get some pointers and some confidence back.

Fairway wood off a tee and the deck.

Off the tee. Can't do it. I hit my irons fairly well but the tee box kills me.

Hitting irons solidly. I'm pretty straight off the tee, and I have a good short game. But since I don't play as much as I used to I find myself fighting the swipey high iron shot. The few times I go to the range to practice I basically hit low punch draws to focus on my left wrist staying solid through impact.

Today I shot 81.

10 bogeys, 7 pars and a birdie.

I had 30 putts, but I 3 putted 3 times.
I hit some good wedges, but I shanked a wedge.
I drove the ball decently, but I came over the top on a driver.
I hit several really nice fairway woods, but I topped a fairway wood.

It looks like I can struggle at any moment with any club in the bag. I did drink water consistently and I ate a payday candy bar like a boss.

The mental side of the game. There are parts of my round or individual shots where I just go braindead. Then I think, why did I do that? It didn’t even make sense to try that shot.

Driving consistency. Putting it in the short stuff makes the game so much easier haha.

I blow at least one hole per round. It's like I forgot how to hit a golf ball all of a sudden.

Payday is a criminally underrated candy bar. I’m eat one nearly every round

Long irons. For me, if the second shot requires a 4 or 5 iron, the hole can go very badly. But on shorter par 4’s where I can swing an 8 or 9, it’s usually good. Wish I could learn to hit the longer irons straight.

All of this. And just staying focused in general. Bring me some adderall for the nickel

It will not melt in bag.

Peanut m&m s will not melt, but regular m&m s will.

Tee box is killer for me. I find myself using driver less and less because I can’t consistently put it in play.

Also my mental concentration on 14-18 tends to vanish. Need to find a way to stay in the game mentally
