Most up and down round of golf you've played?

30 posts in this topic

I just finished a nine hole round where I started 10 over through four and finished two over through the last five.. Out of no where the drive were going straight and far and just changed the game completely.. What is the biggest up and down round of golf you've played?

recently I had a similar round. The front 9 was atrocious... I appeared to be well on my way to a +100 round. Then my playing partner watched me hit a good drive and commented on the difference in my tempo. Something about him pointing that out stuck with me and I finished really strong. I went par,par, birdie, par, par at one stretch and finished the round at my typical 92- 95

Made 7 birdies once and shot even par. Another round I started with an 10 (par 5) and shot 79 on a tough course (Spyglass).

This happens a lot to me. Just today, played a 9 hole par-3 course. Shot 13 over on the first 9 (9 over on first 3), 5 over playing the same 9 again... I like to blame it on 'not being warmed up'...yet in the end it just means I'm still very inconsistent.

Years ago at Mountain View golf course in central NJ, I had a round where I chipped/putted in from off the green 5 times. Three times for birdie, but had several double bogeys as well. Really worked out to a decent score, but it was all over the place. I pulled out some great recovery shots, but also hit some real stinkers. It was a ride like few rounds I've had since Lot of fun, I recall playing with some cool guys and we had a lot of fun.

I had it happen in tryouts where I was -1 through the front nine, in the lead beating the player who won conference last year, then went +4 on the back nine due to some stupid shots to finish at +3 to his -2. I've also had it happen where I shot a five over on the front and two under on the back to end up with the same score. Just depends on my approach shots and how close they end up to the pin.

My round today was truly up and down. Shot 59 on the first nine and 39 on the second nine. I was really proud that I kept my composure while recording a 10 on a par 4 and a 15 on a par 5 the first nine. Funny thing is the money ended up even at the end of the day.

I'm sure I've had many rounds with a 10 shot or more difference between 9's. First time I shot 70 was a 30 front and 40 back. five birdies an eagle and I still was only -1 for the day.

I recall shooting 45-35, 4?-34.....2 or 3 birdies in a nine really help the score!

A few weeks ago I went 55 on the front and 40 on the back. Didn't do anything but hit the bathroom at the turn.

Go figure.

I've shot 90 before with a 3 over back nine before. That was an interesting day...

Every time I play, I'm trying to get up and down on nearly every damn hole. :-$

nearly every round, the back nine is usually much better than the front

My most extreme round came on a 36-36=par 72 course.

This was almost 15 years ago when I caught a terrible case of the shanks on the front, but played great on the back.......... 50-35....a 15 stroke differential between Nines!!   LOL....I have yet to card another 50 since that day.  thank heavens!  This was circa 2000 when I was about a 8-9hc.

2 years ago when I was shooting 50 maybe, I went bogey, triple, triple, then played 1 under other than a drive that I bombed and it hit a sprinkler head and went in the water. And a year ago I shot +10 on the front then -1 on the back with a double, in a tournament
