Default Please tell me I'm not craxy, or...
Please tell me I'm not crazy, or at least that I'm not the only one who talks to my golf clubs during a round. When I'm playing with a group the dialogue is usually just in my head, but when I'm playing as a single I'll have an ongoing conversation with each of my 14 buddies. "C'mon driver, let's put one right down the middle." "Nice shot 9-iron. Well done." "Let's put a good roll on it baby. Get 'er to the hole."

The ball can be become part of the discussion as well. "You couldn't have taken 1/2 more roll to the hole?" or "How do always know ti release when the pin's in front or check up when it's in the back?"

And so on.

Am I alone? Do I need to seek psychiatric care?

um...i wouldn't say it's OUTLOUD dialogue but, every now and then it comes out...so you're not alone in the sense that those thoughts exist but as for having dialogue with the ball and ongoing conversations...yes, seek care.

Yes, you're crazy.

No you're not. Just jokin.

I do a similar thing when playing alone except my discussion is with myself rather than my clubs. I think you just want to have friends on the course when you play so you enlist your clubs.

My discussion is more of..."OK let's put a little draw on this and curve it around the trees..." It's a good way to stay focused. You're just expressing your thoughts out loud knowing no one else will hear you.

I talk to my clubs on occasion, but usually to remind them that one more shot like that and they'll be part of a Hyundai.

I have a tendency to shout/cuss my clubs. Does that count?

I think the talking to your clubs that your describing is extremely positive reinforcement, something we could all use more of on a conscious or sub-conscious level out on the golf course. I'm not sure your being as constructive with your balls - perhaps they could use some more coddling (I bet you didn't think the conversation could get any weirder).

So to answer your questions, you may be alone but I don't believe you need to seek help until the clubs start talking back.

yeah you do but it's funny!

I talk to myself all the time...the bad part is when I start to answer myself. But I never talk to the clubs....maybe the ball a bit though.

Now that's funny.

I do talk on the course. Sometimes it's directed at the clubs, but mostly just at myself. Most common phrases used are "You've got to be kidding me...", "Seriously?", and "Really?"

I ask the ball if its to good for its home and why won't it go home.

I talk to my clubs to i guess.

So the good news its that your not alone, bad news is we still might crazy.

Maybe that's what's missing from my game? I'll give it a try, I'm grasping at straws to jump to the next level. "Come on you stupid driver", lol

Totally normal. If you don't talk to your clubs your the crazy one. I do find myself including the ball in the convo quite a bit though. I like to threaten it with a watery grave. I do it in a Mobster stereotypical Italian voice for effect.

I don't talk to my golf clubs, but I do seem to talk to myself, sounds like it's the third person, after a bad shot!

Name each of them first so they feel special when you speak to them
