Option A: win lottery

Option B: start frequenting nursing homes and start getting nice and friendly with an ol gal with a big bank account, no kids, and a bad heart.

I have had some terrible rounds before on some tough/hilly courses that makes you question why the heck am I doing this. I think what has helped me the most is just focusing on one aspect of the game that I need to work on and really working on that one thing. I have been playing for 2 years and have improved quite a bit, but I still can't hit putts, approaches still fall too far away from the basket and my distance drives still burn into cutt rollers from time to time. Instead of trying to fix everything, I just focus on the one that is most impacting my score. It's a slow process for sure, but It's very satisfying when you look back and see how far you have come. Don't let bad rounds stop you from playing though, everybody has bad rounds.

I get out of a slump by simply not caring about the result. Maybe it wont work for everyone, but it certainly impacts my game to simply "stop trying".

The best way for me to get out of a slump is to play a good solid beer a hole round. It's challenging but it can be done.

Time off first - do something different
Mix up the bag - not saying buying new things is the answer but sometimes you need to shake it up
New Course - sometimes you need a new setting
STRETCH - get your body prepared - playing cold or stiff isn't going to help
R-E-L-A-X (Aaron Rodgers --Have Fun
Then get back into it - with Leagues/Group of friends/ Some competition
After all this if you still are in a slump then you are destined to fail forever muahahahahahahahahahaha - or maybe I don't know

In a terrible slump right now. Mostly mental. Going to take my own advice and step away from tournament play for the rest of the year. When I decide to compete again I'll step back down to Men's Advanced (minor leagues) until I get a win and then give Open another try.

Got out of my very recent slump by switching back to fan grip for all throws. Switched to power grip half a year ago and now it feels so awkward again.. Also changed my putting style for a more hyzer release and it's helping. By posting this I will have jinxed myself effectively starting a new slump!

good advice i think i'm at the 6 month stage of playing (past the honeymoon of playing) and i don't hear the chains like i used to. I think it might be job/life/winter slump related also. And i have to take a break buying discs for a month or two till i repay christmas/black friday overspending lol. you guys always rock when i need advice thanks.
