Not sure how "weird" I am,  but I play best either solo, or during high-pressure tournament situations  (which hasn't been in awhile since my game is in the toilet due to lack-of-time)    Two total different ends of the spectrum I guess,  but really it makes sense to me....  If I'm "focused"  I do well  (much like walking vs. cart,  but that's one of the other 100 threads)   If I'm playing in a casual group, especially if I'm playing with hacks,  then my game is...
I encountered a lot of luck on my way to those Even Par / Under par rounds.....   of course I've encountered some of the craziest luck  (good luck)  on terrible rounds too....    Even Par over 18 holes shows a consistent skill.   You're gonna have good AND bad luck during ANY round.   How you utilize it or recover from it,  is where the skill comes in  (in addition to avoiding bad situations, putting yourself in good situations etc)     A hole in one 'can' be a...
  I've played both of those courses  (league play at Tam O' )  and I don't recall any crazy greens,  but it's been awhile......       I use to get out to Firestone all the time on Corporate Memberships  (by playing with people WAY above my pay-grade!)  and that's a completely different kind of frustrating!
Your Irons are 10 years old?    I'm currently carrying an 8 handicap, and although I'd be lying if I didn't look at other irons sometimes,  I haven't felt the need to pull the trigger yet, and I've been hoofing the same set of irons for 15 years  (98' until now)    If you think your irons aren't suitable for your skill level,  then buy some new ones  (used,  that's what I'd do... too many nice sets out there for cheap vs. paying MSRP)  otherwise,  just keep working...
EDIT: Nevermind....  I'm an idiot.   Still don't know what club he has, but I ordered the wrong thing....
Hooked one into the parking lot, hit a prius.   Felt great coming off the face....                 not serious by the way.
Find some of those  "All High-Handicappers out drinking beer golf-scrambles"    You'll be playing, without reflecting back on a personal score.  Just think of the scramble as a fun way of practicing.     If you're having that much trouble with contact etc. too,  definitely take some basic lessons, and take what you're told out the range and easier courses in your area, and try to work on those things.
I played a course that has a horseshoe type break in one of the greens.   It's a short(er) par-5, so they use to like to cut the hole directly in the middle of the horseshoe of the green.   To keep the ball from coming back down to you, you either have to make it (obviously)  or put 10 feet past the hole, and the break is big enough that even if you hit the center of the hole when putting from above the hole, it's probably going to be going so fast it won't...
I'm not seeing the part where you were ever actually a 24 handicapper.....   a bad round here or there perhaps, but you seem like you've always been a pretty good golfer from what I'm seeing.
    Try not to take my post-made-in-jest so literally.    Besides, that kid is 23 and is carrying a +1 handicap right now, right?   At his current rate, he'll be shooting in the 50's consistently by next year.
