My fear starts from the tee box, and then i fear the fairway , and then i get really tense in the bunker. Finally, i collapse into a nasty frenzy when i am on the green. i wonder if i should be playing this game. Psychologically, it's just too paralysing.

WAH SEH!! I thought I am the most 'paranoid' person there is liao ...
You win!!! Laughing

Nahhhh ... I think you're just pulling our legs Suspect

Don't worry too much about the killing part...my friend and I regularly attempted the same thing during every range session...Twisted Evil

I have the same problem with long clubs...does not help that I'm not tall either....hence my resolution for the new year is to focus on mastering my 3 and 4 hybrids before upgrading to the woods and drivers


hi navik, thanks for the sharing. Very Happy
Well, I guess it'll be my resolution to master my driver!
(I tried hybrid, it's worse than my driver! hahahaha......)

oh when I say 'master', I meant to be able to hit the ball without fear and make the ball fly. Smile

Then there's only 2 ways...

1) Overcome it n keep on practicing. Maybe can choose the right most bay so that even if u slice, u won't hit anyone.

2) Sell off the woods n use ur long iron instead. Assume ur 7iron goes 100m. Then u will be on e green within 4-5 strokes. Can still putt for par or bogey. Idea rite? Razz

My problem is my wedges.... Always top it... No chance for me to practice in driving range Sad

1) Sure, but must get my swing right first siah.... right most? I usu go to the left most .. I don't like having someone behind me Razz Laughing

2) WAH LAU ... mai ah ni leh ....
Oh yah yah ... managed to hit it 100m pretty consistent ... that's on Christmas day itself niah... muahahaha Laughing
I like your idea ... Makes me feel relieved a bit. kekeke Laughing

Wedges ... go turf city lorrrr ....

Like all fears... have it done often enough and you'll overcome it.

I can help you overcome it.
