Rate of play is a biggie. Slow is a no go.

Also, point of release (which really means consistent throws). I can throw over 425 feet...sometimes...and not always towards the basket.

Backhand drives. Some days I wonder if they will ever catch up to my forehand game!

It's either the drive, the approach or the putt. sometimes i can't find parking.

Once a bird **** on me before I threw.

Also, allergies, aliens, terrorists and the color blue.

Backhand upshots (120-220ish) with mids. I can't fan grip for the life of me, something with my timing/release. I would much rather be 300 ft out with a comfortable power grip.

Just got to shake those little things off.
Not so much putting for me, but on the tee. If I'm even in my run up and feel something odd I get freaked out.

These 2 things right here are going to be the friggin death of me. I swear. One time in a tourney I was sitting in 2nd going in to the final round. I gained 2 strokes on the leader in the first 3 holes to pass him and I was still going hot. After like 7 holes I had 4 strokes on him..then...backups. Waiting at each tee for 10-12 minutes or more killed me. I ended up only pulling it out by a stroke. I was clearly on a good streak that got shot down by the backups.

In no particular order...

Point of release
Rushing shots unnecessarily
An uncanny ability to graze trees just enough to throw a well executed shot off by 30 degrees in the worst possible direction

I'm not a big thrower, but this actually doesn't bother me. If I am throwing well, I'll gladly work my way up a fairway than out of bad lies.

I do excel at putting the last shot behind me though. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Beer. Hitting the proper amount can be a trick!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I'm a teepad nazi. It just gets under my skin when places don't have good teepads. That messes with my mental game and then I have a hard time relaxing and playing a good round. It's probably the first thing I notice when playing a new course. There's a little checklist in my mind like this: 1. are they flat?, 2. are they large enough for a standard runup?, and 3. do they provide good traction? I've played 75 courses and I think I could tell you what the tee situation is at most of those.
