According to my current statistics, I average 31 putts per round and 33% GIR.
On May 1st, I was practicing after work and decided to play nine. On the first hole, I hit my approach just short and a little right of the green. I chipped to a foot and tapped in for an easy par. I then proceeded to hit the next 8 greens in regulation, easily I might add, almost as if I knew what I was doing. My score? +1 35, with no birdies, and a miserable 3-putt bogey.
On November 19th, I played that same nine holes twice for a par of 68. First nine, 37 strokes with three GIR(two 3-putt bogeys), and a total of 14 putts, including a no-putt green(chip in par). Second nine, 33 strokes with six 1-putt greens(three birdies in last four holes) and a total of 12 putts.
Nothing makes sense.
What magic moments have you had, where everything goes your way for no reason, and your play far exceeds what you thought you were capable of? And the other side, what terrible misfortunes have you encountered, where your play seems worse than you ever thought possible?
