 My problem is that I have at least one - usually two - blow-up holes per round.  I'm a single-digit player for the other 16-17 holes.    I almost never get to play on the weekend, so that must have been my brother. Actually, he's the 'sucker' that hits the ball long.  If he ever played 'smart', he'd be a single digit.Never played Stableford....  I kind of just like counting up to my own ineptitude - nothing to mask the warts, so to speak.
....Looks like you really have only one option - play it like a series of three par-3s.   I would probably play it like this:1) Slice 5-wood or hybrid into the pond off the tee. 3rd shot takes you about 200 yards off the tee.2) Skull next shot into the stream/run-off. 6th shot puts you in the rough just behind a tree on the left side. Yup, you played for a slice/fade, but you sort of pulled it instead.3) Your attempt at the hero shot around the bush fails so badly that you...
Sob story?  Not really, but...   I don't understand why I keep making the same stupid mistakes!  Several times a round, I find myself watching some lousy shot (again), and I'm thinking to myself, "Stop over-swinging!"  The next 7-10 shots are fine, and suddenly I'm lashing out at the ball again.  For some reason, I just keep wanting to hit the ball as hard as I fricken can even though I know I hit it better, more consistently, and (usually) even longer with a controlled...
92.  I followed every good shot with a miserable one.  My putting was fine - irons terrible.  
I scored a craptacular 91.      ...but at least I parred my nemesis - the 18th.
My putter set-up is changing soon -- just got fit for a putter (should arrive at the end of the week). My hope is that the new putter will be my one-and-only for years and years to come.   ...sort of.   I currently have four putters: the putter that came with the Top-Flite set I bought when I was first starting a few years ago, a Hogan/Bettinardi putter I currently use, and two el-cheapo's that I keep in CA (I have two full bags in CA so I don't have to fly with clubs...
I like to play early. Love it when I'm among the first out and finish in 2 1/2 or less.  ...but I hate waking up for it. 
78.  First time under 80 this month.  :)   Memorable because I had a stretch of four holes where every shot came off almost exactly as I wanted.  Felt great!   ...Then I played +4 for the final three holes. :(
I mostly play Chabot because it's only 20 minutes away, but I've played Tilden a few times now.  Really fun, but I always lose a few in the trees...
I didn't play today either, and I'm bummed.   My fault - I looked at the weather radar before driving to the course. Radar made it look like a massive thunderstorm half the size of the state was coming up - in reality, it drizzled for an hour and a half and then gave way to a light rain with no lightning at all.  If I'd just driven to the course, I could have played.  Would have gotten wet, but I could have played.   ...What an idiot.
