Your Lowest Round Ever

319 posts in this topic

Ok, I am going to go out on a limb here as I did not see any "best score" type threads.

I have 2 rounds that are my best. One is my lowest score, the other is my best round :)

Round 1 - Lowest

I shot a 64 at Pebble Brook Golf Course in Noblesville, IN where I used to work as a cart boy (I am 24 now btw). It was an 8 under par round and I had 2 bogeys.

http://www.pebblebrookgolf.com/South.htm

It was nice because I started out with 4 straight birdies :)

Round #2 - Best Round

This was at http://www.harbourtrees.com/index.cfm?ID=92

I shot a 65 with 3 bogeys (6 under par). I consider it my best round because the course is harder. Hell, I won the club championship 2 years ago on it with scores of 78 - 76 - 76. Granted, the course wasn't THAT hard, I just played bad.

However, those are by far my greatest golf scores ever. At that time, I was playing to a +2. That was about 2-3 years ago.

My best score is an even par 72. I've yet to break through for a sub-par round. I birdied the last two to get that 72, in fact.

My best ball-striking round resulted in an 81, of all things. It was an unfamiliar course and twice I hit the ball through doglegs and into trouble because I didn't know the distances. Combined with some pretty tricky greens, well, there you have it.

FWIW, we do have a "what did you shoot today?" thread, but this one is original.

I've had three rounds of 18 at even par but never sub-par. My best nine hole score was a 33( but started with a 40 on the front that day) I'm envious of you who have been under par. Hopefully, this will be my year

My low 18 is a 76. My low 9 is a 35. My handicap is 9.4, and has never been lower than 8.1. I usually go in streaks of about 4 or 5 holes, then choke and implode. I have a hard time maintaining a smooth tempo for 18 holes.

my lowest 18 hole round is a 71, but my lowest 9 hole was 32 -- not in the same round either. my best round is a 74 to win a Junior Invitational.

Low 18 -4 66. Low 9 -4 31. Both at the course I work on now.

As I knock on wood, my game is really starting to develop, especially within the last two weeks. Making a lot more birdies these days. Had 3 in the 7 holes I played after work yesterday. 2 birdies and an eagle on Monday over 18 holes.

Well, honestly, I probably only played about 15 or 20 times a year tops the last few years. So I really haven't scored much better than 82 or 83 lately.

When I was playing much more frequently about 5 years ago, I shot 79 twice. I shot it once on a little old short course back home. Hell, I probably should have shot 70 or better, but 79 was still fun.

Then I shot 79 again on a little tougher course, but still it was nothing special or PGA like by any means.

As far as 9 holes go, I have shot a couple 37's, but they were on a very easy and short back nine at that first course I mentioned.

I mostly play in the city I live in, I don't go play the fancy courses much. I look to do that more this year though and in the future. That way I can see what else there is to offer in the USA.

But for the most part, I'll either be striking the ball very well and suck it up with the short game or the opposite. I never seem to have it all going on the same day.

My best 18 and lowest score is a 69 on about the tightest course in the state. That's the only round in the 60's. That was my goal for last year and a did it. I've shot 71 about 20 times or more, no 70.

Shot 31 once on 9 holes and missed a 1 foot par putt.

I have shot a 62 once, which was like 10 under, but that was on a hack golf course where you could hit sand wedges into par 5's and drive some of the greens :) so that doesn't count. I htink the course rating is like a 67 or something :)

My lowest Competitive round was a 4 under 67. I did that in a college tourney. I have shot a couple 69's and I 'think" a 68, but those are the best I have done in competition.

Just curious what some of the lowest rounds you guys have had are. Post what your handicap was at the time and a brief description of the round.

My lowest to date was a 76, I shot it at Scyamore Golf Course in Arvin, CA. I shot it some time in the summer of 2000 when I was 14 years old, I had a friend I played with every sunday at this golf course and he was always 5-10 strokes better then me but this day I creamed him and shot 76 and he shot 79. I shot an even par 36 on the front nine and followed it up with a 40. I was an 8/9 handicap then - maybe lower I cant remember.

Since playing golf again after a 6 year break my lowest round thus far (after 2.5 weeks) is a 78 at my home course Tomball Country Club. I shot a pair of 39's and fortunately had no double bogeys which really helped break 80 again. Right now I am currently a 10 handicap.

what are some of your lowest rounds?

82 at a John Daly course down in Myrtle Beach. Wicked Stick, I think. No trees.

The lowest I've gone is 85 at my home courses (the two I usually play are rated 134 and 138). I've carded in a 37 on the most penal nine holes in the area, as well as a handful of 39's and 40's. In this heat, I play a lot of nine hole rounds because I try to keep enough energy to work out later that day.

I shot a 42 on 9 holes at Santee National last Thursday afternoon. best score so far. I played 9 last night at my home course. Didn't keep score and probably would have shot a 60! I couldn't hit anything straight last night.

70 back in 1990 when I was 14 years old at Tanoan CC in Albuquerque. Was probably an 8 handicap at the time.

More recent… March '07. Shot a 31 on the back nine at Santa Ana GC in ABQ. but the front nine was a 43. Handicap was 7.

I really want to break 70 but I just don’t practice enough.

    • 2016 TST Initiative: Forward Tees Tournament
      In Lowest Score Wins, we recommend that golfers play from the forward tees in order to experience "breaking 80" for the first time, or shooting 65, or having more birdie putts than they've ever had, or whatever. This year, in 2016, we're taking it one step farther: we're encouraging everyone here to work with the head pro at your home course (or, if you play multiple courses, the head pro at each of them!) and to set up a serious "Forward Tees Tournament." A Forward Tees Tournament (FTT) will be: FUN! Enlightening Unique Challenging I'll give anyone who creates and/or participates in a FTT this year the special achievement/award seen to the left. Anyone with this award will be entered to win a TST prize to be determined at the end of the year (and I'll do my best to make it a fairly good prize, but that shouldn't be the main reason why anyone should do this). You can play: With or without handicaps. With or without brackets/divisions/flights. Stroke play or match play. 18, 27, 36, 54+ holes. One day, two days, three days. Etc. I think golfers will love playing in this type of tournament. I think it will challenge them to think about how they play and score. I think it will result in faster play, more fun, more birdies, more chances to hit 7-iron into par fives and feel like a Tour player for once, and… lower scores (or higher scores for the dumb players!). So there you have it. What can you do from here? Pledge here in this thread to talk to your head pro. Recruit your buddies and local golfers to play in your event. Work with your head pro to make the event a success. Play in the event! Post here after your tournament has been played to claim your super-exclusive award/achievement! I'm in. I'll be doing this, hopefully at multiple courses this year. Are you?
    • Posting old scores
      I haven't had an official handicap for about 15 years because in the past several I've only been able to play 6-8 times per year. This year I joined a club so that I could play in tournaments and since I need five scores to get a handicap, I entered some scores in GHIN from my last few rounds in 2015 (since I play so rarely, I can remember them). When I was doing this, I forgot to change the date when posting a score from August so it defaulted to today and is now my most recent reported score. GHIN won't let me change the entry but says to "contact my club" to fix it, which seems like a hassle for everyone involved. It's not my lowest score but it's close, so it will probably be included in my handicap calculation for quite a while unless the date is changed. How big of a deal is this?
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Another thing is sometimes to 'give up' on par. For example, as a bogey golfer, if I hit a bad tee shot and end up say 220yds from the hold on a par 4 rather than the usual 130yds, play the hole as if bogey is the new par. You've made the hole more difficult for yourself and rather than trying to hit the green with a 3 wood (a green designed to be hit with a mid/short iron), take 2 shots to get on the green and 2 shots to get down. 1 220yd par 4 is an easy hole (could even make birdie (which becomes par and a great save) whereas a 220 yd par 3, not off the tee, is asking for trouble. Not always the best way to play golf (read Lowest Score Wins) but the best way to avoid blowing up.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Find it yourself please. I don't think that would provide much insight. Courses, technology… all very different. Too many differences. People who qualify for the Opens rarely actually compete for them. The winners and top finishers almost always come from those who qualify automatically. I'm not. Very few foreign golfers played on the PGA Tour in the 60s. It's been steadily growing - and travel has made it easier, too - through to now. And even now we're starting to see Asian golfers really take over. The only Asian golfer many could name who competed against Nicklaus was Isao Aoki. Maybe Jumbo Ozaki. I'm just talking about the number of golfers. There are a ton more now. I don't care. I realize perhaps your condition forces you to take everything literally, but I wasn't being literal here. The PGA Tour takes the best 150 players or so out of X. As X grows, the amount of separation between those top 150 players narrows. We're in a very narrow phase right now. When Jack was playing, the gap was significantly wider. No. Tiger was quite a bit more dominant and "above" even MORE highly competitive fields. Both halves of that are true: Tiger won by larger margins and against stronger fields. I agree. And I've said similar things. No…? You don't say? (On page 273 of a thread doing just that…)? You seem to be the only person who regards WGCs as weaker fields that offer a "competitive break." It says a lot about how others should consider your opinions on strength of field. You're assuming or haven't read many of my posts in this thread, because I've said several times that I'd put it within a few points of 50/50. Maybe 55/45. Hardly what I'd call "strong." Of course we're both "estimating." Tiger's record, IMO, against significantly stiffer competition, puts him ahead. Not by a lot. Not really. If only 30 players had a realistic chance to win a tournament, adding players beyond that 30th player does little to affect the strength of the field. The WGCs could add 200 club professionals that would never win and… the strength of field would remain exactly the same. Where have I said this? Because even if I did, it doesn't support whatever you're trying to force it into supporting here. The odds of a club pro beating anyone on the PGA Tour these days are slim to none. They were slightly more likely back when fewer "A" players played the PGA Tour… like in the 60s and 70s. A "C" player's game almost never varies enough - not for four days - to beat even 10 or 15 "A" players. Here's an opinion, but one I could probably back up if I cared enough to take the time (I do not): a modern WGC has a stronger field than many (perhaps all) of the majors Nicklaus won. I've said this before, and will say it again here: In Jack's day, there were maybe 10-15 "A" players, 25 "B" players, and the rest were "C" players. Today there are 100+ A players and the rest B players. I'm also going to request, mostly because of the number of times I've had to repeat myself in this thread, that you not quote or respond to me, @natureboy, in this thread. I'm not keen on repeating myself about something that, ultimately, I don't care that much about. It is what it is, their records are what they are, and they could only beat the guys they played against.
