Joyless in Japan

The person that came up with "a bad day at the golf course is better than a good day at the office," has never met anyone who's office is the golf course. I am extreamly disappointed tonight after another terrible round where I had no control over my golf ball and very little over myself. After hitting the ball out of bounds four times today and hitting 6 greens in regulation, which I think ties for my worst stats since sophomore year of college, it's time to get a golf lesson. My swing has been hanging by a thread for a while now and after 6 months without any golf lesson, I can't continue to improve without help. Days like this in the life of a professional golfer are pretty lonely. But this is all part of the experience and makes the journey's story so inspiring when you tell it from the PGA Tour winner's circle some day.

Mark, I'm glad to see you are keeping your head up. As professionals in other arenas we all have bad days and hope to improve in the future. No matter how you play I still envy your golf game and I know it will improve to the level you expect. Continue having confidence in your game and before you know it you will be laughing about the bad days.
