My scores had been trending in the right direction (back into the 90s and slowly moving down) and then out of nowhere I found the shanks (irons, wedges, woods - you name it).

Irons would do one of two things, low/right bullets or I'd pull it so far left it wouldn't matter.

Wedges were just hit or miss - no more clean contact like I had been having. And my driver / 5w? Well the 5w was probably the most regular club I was hitting. Driver mostly stays in the bag.

And then Monday night I put a 51 for nine holes down with three sevens on the scorecard (and a six on a par 3)

Apparently I found it again and all I have to do is clean up those three bad holes and my scores are back in the right direction.

What in the ....

This is why I play. There's always light at the end of the tunnel and I'm always flocking towards that light. Even after taking a hard turn and crashing into the tunnel wall on occasion!

Well, you are not alone. I bet majority golfers going/went through same thing.

Yep and it'll continue to happen :)

There are always lulls in the game. My mindset is such that I don't get frustrated (I'm playing to enjoy myself). I just buckle down and work my way through it!
