So I've posted on here a few times complaining about how bad my swing has gotten. The s***k. But it doesn't take long for me to get over it and get back playing. Well a few weeks ago I was spending a good amount of time on the range and felt good about my game. Went and played in a tournament and lost it. Just awful. I thought maybe it just wasn't my day. So I went back out a few days later and a couple of beers and was loose and not under any pressure. Well after the first hole my swing just collapsed. Sh**king everything or at best hitting it really fat. I can honestly say I have NEVER hit the ball this poorly, even when I started playing. I went from shooting mid-high 70's to probably not even breaking 100 within a week. I have decided that I am just going to step away and not swing a club or have anything to do with golf for the next month or so. I really enjoy the game because it has been a helpful outlet in my life will all the things I have going on and I know I don't want to make the mistake and just say "I quit" Although I am under an intense amount of stress right now in my life I still don't think stress can make me swing THAT bad. Has anyone ever just had their swing completely vanish? Do you think just stepping away and not even think about golf for a while is a good idea, or should I give in and get a series of lessons and just rebuild from scratch?
