This the main difference between the two of us. If I score a round in the mid to high 80s, I consider it a minor miracle. It's the exception. When I score in the low 90s, that's more the rule. Or somewhere in between.
I also play really hard courses. Sometimes, I play from the tips for the fun of it, and also score in the mid-90s. Yet, I have not had an over 100 round in a long time (4 months, but a long time relative to my short golfing career), even playing a new course.
The difference in our outlook on the course is that you list yourself as an 11 handicap, and I keep the one given to me at 17. Yet we overlap scores many times.
For the last 4 months, I can see minor incremental improvements to my score because I practice what I am told to practice by my instructors. On top of that, I really putt badly, and could easily improve my scores by 6 strokes with the 65/25/10 type practice. Currently, I am at 98/2/0.
I'm not saying that we have the same potential or anything, but just pointing out that the main difference is our outlook to this game while we score roughly the same on roughly the same courses from the same tees. Of course, I would be elated to get a 78, which I think you managed once or twice?
