This is so depressing!
Not sure if this link will work for everyone, but these are all my scores since I have kept my cards and scores. I started playing about 6-7 months prior to the start of this list. Any of my scores before this list (Feb 2013) would have been above 115, mostly in the 120's and 130's.
I've been playing a year and a half almost, with no off-season. Since around July of 2012. I have played probably 40 rounds in that time, including the 28 listed here, and have not broken 100 yet. I had a 100 on the nose a few months back. I always feel like I'm on the verge of breaking through, but I'm getting sick of deluding myself! I'll just keep working, reading, watching, practicing and swinging, and it'll come when it comes.
I really do feel like quite a poor player reading this thread, however. You guys are all pretty awesome players as far as I'm concerned!
For anyone who is still grinding as a hacker out there and is reading this, just know that you're not alone. And also, contrary to what you may read here, THIS GAME IS HARD. Every part of it. Keep trying things, and work on your flaws, and it will come together one day.
In my defense, I value my marriage over my golf game (I would play and practice way more!), I have a full time job, and I play by the rules of golf 100% at all times. No mulligans, no fluffed lies (or even moving the ball at all), no miscounted or forgotten strokes, take stroke and distance, hit provisional balls, ect...
Usually have mid-30's putts per round. It's the long game, and wedges (100 and in) for sure that are holding me back, definitely. I can 2 putt when I get there. Getting there is usually 4-6 shots. 2-3 of which are wasted somehow.
