Breaking 80

6 posts in this topic

I did it! I broke 80 with a 79. One of the best days I've ever had!! I've had these days before where I just play amazing and rarely mess up and will barely bogey anything. But this is the first time doing it on 18 holes. I even had my first eagle! I came up to this hole and said I'm going to drive this green (short par 4, 303 on the scorecard), and guess what? I did it! Left myself with about a 10 foot putt, put it in the center if the cup! But...I doubled the hole right after that to put me at 2 over on the front 9. The back nine I was still just hitting them really well but decided to play how I normally do on the last three holes and was 4 over on just those three. You guys have no idea how exciting this is for me, especially in the amount of time I've been playing. Now I just have to play like that on the match I have Thursday! Wish me luck, and thanks for reading!

If you want to break 80 more, and you want to win in competition, then you need to spend about 70-80% of your time practicing your short game.  Spend extra attention on the 3-6 foot putt range.  So many shots are lost in this range and it is one of the biggest statistical differences between pro's and amateurs.


Good luck!

That was mainly why I did. My short game was on time. I only hit 7 greens in regulation. But every time I missed it I only had one putt. My total putts were 30 for the whole round and I had three 3 putts too. But that's def what I need to work on, everytime it has been really good I have done amazing like I did yesterday. Thanks!

Sorry to disappoint you @RFKFREAK . Better late than never?

@golfgaijin - you almost couldn't be more wrong if you tried. Did you know that the average 80s shooter will putt better than a PGA Tour player 20% of the time (for 18 holes)? Yet they'll virtually never* hit it better than a PGA Tour player.

* I almost said something I almost never say - "never" - but perhaps someone has played a round on the PGA Tour drunk off his hind end or something.
