'Slinger' is a most exciting game....it seems like a simple game which at first seems to favour you...you even feel guilty cause it appears that you're taking advantage but what the hell, it's only a small bet....after the first game of 'slinger', you're happy after your win and everyone's having a good time.......then for the next game of 'slinger', the stakes increase a little as the strokes given to you decrease, but it's close and you still win.....everyone's having a ball and laughing at how your opponent (let's call him Andy) lost cause he three-putted from 6 feet on the last hole.....you're wondering how Andy could miss that last putt....

in the next game, the stakes increase, the strokes decrease and you've learned a new word....mind f**king....the smiles are still there, the jokes come fast furious but the problem is so does Andy's birdies..before u know it, you've lost all the money you have in your wallet and need Andy's bank account so that you can transfer him money........but you're still having fun.....you think you can still win and can't wait for the next game with Andy......after all, you only lost by one hole.....

The next game, you learn another new word........KLJ........and that's when you know you have entered the wild and wonderful world of 'slinger'.......

Wow!! Very interesting read!! I've known Slinger for quite a few years now.......and am now worried about the game I'm supposed to have with him soon..... :-p

Herpderp, l too am undergoing a similar quest. there was a time I could shoot below 80 occasionally but have now lost all confidence in my swing where breaking 85 is a good day. Just to share what I'm doing:

1. Gone for my first golf lessons. I've gone for 3 lessons over the past 3 months and have been told that my alignment was off, my grip too weak, my swing too inside to out, my finish had the infamous chicken wing and i popped up just before i hit the ball resulting in a slice or topped shot. The biggest surprise was to see how far left I was aligned when I though it was perfectly straight.

2. Avoid the golf sharks on this forum for the time being. People say that you should always play with better players. I think that it's better to avoid my betting kaki and focus on improving my swing for the time being without the additional pressure.

3. Spend more time practising my chipping. This has helped me manage my scores to mid 80s even as my swing has completely gone awol.

The hardest part is being committed to the swing changes on the course as my game is going downhill.......but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel (though sometimes I think it's slinger & co on a freight train with a flashlight waiting to run me over) .....and I'm sure that given your commitment, you will break 80 in a matter of months......i've never had the discipline to keep stats like you do but will try this to see where I need to improve....

P.S. 20 July 2012 was when I shot my best score ever.....golf is truly a humbling game.....

GF!!!!!! Me, me, me!

Golf with me!

Me just back from knitting....game is chui also.
We can have a good date out on the course and share sob stories.

Your old love, slinger can come back later....but me first k?

Love,

Slinger is not a good golfer, he is a lucky golfer and he always managed to get lucky and beat you by one hole, mostly at the last......Rex is as honest as they come.....wam bang thank you mam..

so you can see that sharks do come in different shape, size and laughter tones. the other shark appeared at the Den to change his putter grip last night...like they say, the squirrel never change its tail.....

Yes, it's funny how the better one is, the luckier one gets.

Correction... almost, but not quite as fun as when Slinger is in the flight! Lol

Its been awhile since my last update.

in fact, probably a month back since my last game update. 
if i recall correctly the last game review i posted was at keppel where i shot 85.

after that game at keppel, i started having problems with my golf swing.
i started hooking my drives, and it was horrible. it was.. i guess my first slump after returning to golf.

the next game i had, i shot 85 again at MBGC playing with S70B. He showed me how easy it was to play under 80, and it was impressive.
on that day, i had so many hooks off the drives and had such a bad right shoulder that im amazed i actually even managed to shoot an 85. 

it went further downhill after that. i went on a 1 week reservist, and when i came back, my golf swing was totally off. drives could not go straight or past the 200m mark,irons were hit thin 90% of the time. 

it was a really depressing period.

2 weeks back i went with a friend to ponderosa, and shot 98 there, hitting all over the place. i was disgusted, and the thought of stopping golf crossed my mind. one of my playing partners mentioned," you arent focused. you dont want it hard enough, so you dont bother whether your putts go in or not."  I brushed his words of advice aside as i believed i was already focused and trying hard already. guess i wasnt.

after that week at ponderosa i stopped playing golf altogether for a week. i wanted to take a break and clear my mind off the game. The following weekend i went to the range, and tried to fix the pieces of my swing back together. finally i was getting some drives to fly again. finally i was hitting my irons sweet again.

fast forward to the next game last friday 2 Aug 2013, i played with another 2 of my friends at OCC, and shot a  97. it was downright depressing. i question myself, am i even fit to be holding a single handicap? thoughts of stopping golf crossed my mind again, but i already had a game booked with a fellow GRian and his playing partners.

3rd Aug 2013. I spent quite a long time thinking, what was really wrong with my game? and the advice which was given to me by my friend when playing at ponderosa crossed my mind again. I was now 99% sure, i wasnt totally focused when i was playing. I did some research, and read up on "the zone" and how to get into it. I wanted to know how it was like to really focus. i wanted to play decently again, even if it was just in the mid 80s. 


4th Aug 2013, Sunday. I dug out my old titleist cap. I used it as a trigger to go into the zone. i would put it on before i started my preshot routine, and would totally focus on my golf shot. this i felt, was the biggest contribution to the following :



 
today, 4th Aug 2013, i broke 80, for the first time after coming back to golf for 4 months, and i brought back plenty of valuable lessons and what contributed to it.

1) FOCUS. tried my best to get into the zone. it slowed down my play alot, and i realised how kancheong i had been to hit my shots. did my preshot routine seriously, watched the shot play out during my practice swing, and execute it as closely as possible.

2) PUTT OFF THE GREEN. I was stubborn till today. i wanted to do spectacular pitches. i wanted to use my lob wedge to pitch off the fringe and stop the back after 1 bounce. i wanted to make ppl go wow. but today i realised. who needs that when u can putt it close enough for putter length putt with a putter? it is simple, yet an efficient way to get it close to the hole. it may be boring, but who cares, as long as the ball goes close to the hole.

3) INVEST IN A GOOD PUTTER. a few weeks ago, i dropped my scotty for a zen. i was reluctant at first, as i was a brand whore. titleist freak. but i realised how good the putter felt after trying my friend's one, and how pure the roll was compared to my scotty, which would jump after the stroke. I have no regrets changing to the zen putter, and i have Eric to thank for this.

4) WHO CARES HOW FAR YOUR DRIVER GOES. FIND THE FAIRWAY THEN TALK. This was an important lesson i took off the game with S70B. i stopped trying to whack the ball as far as i can, and tried to simplify how i got the clubface to contact the ball. I started hitting straighter, and the distance started coming back, not to mention i was no longer hooking. didnt find many fairways today, but i was always near it, missing it to the right rough.

and i would like to thank 9points. He is a nice fella who offered to give me advice on my swing when i told him i was in a slump and was losing confidence. although we did not manage to find time in our schedule to meet up, i must say, you are a genuine guy who really want people to do well in this sport, and not only for the sake of earning money. I have full respect for you bro.




my next goal, is of course, to maintain this standard of play, and start to shoot under 80 regularly.
I also have to work on the pressure during the round. Through 17 holes, i was 5 over. The pressure got to me and i blew the last hole. thankfully it was only a double bogey.
Thanks for all those who encouraged me and gave me plenty of advice thru this thread. Thank you.
