I was close yesterday. It was a Par 72 though. I played the front 5 under. Then setting on 14 T box my playing partner decided to make sure that I was aware of my score still 5 under. Been playing and just thinking of my next shot, well I decided to bogey 4 of last 5 holes and shot 71. I have shot a few 69s on a par 71.
I played a round back in late May where I birdied the first hole with a long putt and that sent me on a tear; I was -3 after 5 holes. I finished the front 9 at an even par. I had never even broke 90 prior to this, and at the turn I was thinking, to heck with breaking 90, I want to break 80! Hole 10 is a short par 3. I put it just off the green, messed up my pitch and 3 putted for a 5. I finished the back nine +10 and ended the day with an 83.
Since then I consistently hit upper 80s to low 90s but I haven't as of yet been able to string together another really solid round. My handicap dropped to 12.5 after that round, and is now creeping up!
EDIT: Now as I re-read the subject it states "break 70" not break 80. Ho-hum.
First time I shot under 70 on a par 70 was about 3 months ago. Found myself 4 over through 4 and 4 over through 8. Managed to birdie 9 for a 3 over front nine of 39. Proceeded to birdie the 10th, 13th, 15th and 17th to find myself -1 going into 18. Had been -1 going into the last twice before and this time I said let's get this monkey off my back. Proceeded to hook my drive into some trees and had a shot at the green about 160m out. Put the next on the green and lipped out for a 29 back nine, tapped in for par and shot 30 on the back for a 69 (-1). Since then have done it numerous times, with the lowest being a 66 - slope is 70.8/124
