I can’t seem to recall having shot better than +2 on any given nine.

Same here. Did that a couple times in my league.

My best round ever included my best 9 holes ever.

July 4 fell on a Sunday a few years back, made a cursory appearance at a party, went to bed early and played Miami Shores all by myself the next day. For some reason I was unnaturally calm and went 43-39-82. 

I'm not entirely sure I have ever felt that relaxed before that day or since.

40. Multiple times. Never shot in the 30s for any 9 on a regulation sized golf course. The most recent round of memory was just two weeks ago where I tripled the 18th hole to shoot 42 on the back. Needed par to break 40 and it certainly didn't happen lol.

I've shot a couple 32's in the past few months. I actually had two eagles in one round. Still shot a 69. I should have been about 7 or 8 under that day.😒

I've had a handful of 39s. Usually if I avoid a blow up hole I'll shoot in the low 40s for 9 holes, and if I can make a birdie putt or two I dip below 40.

Shot a 3 under 32 on a par 35 Front...then backed it up with a 41.  Only time I've ever broken par on a nine.

I'm definitely one who has trouble stringing 2 good nines together on same day!

A year or so ago I shot 28 on my par 35 course.  Some luck involved for sure. I holed my second shot on the first hole for eagle and then just hit it crazy close after that.  My longest putt was maybe 15’ on the 7th hole for birdie.  I remember telling myself a birdie would go along way when I was over the putt. That put me 6 under.  9 th hole after a good tee shot I hit my second to a foot and tapped in for -7.

I know I've shot 3-over for a 39.  i don't think I've done any better than that.  Yet.

Shot an even par 36 last year, but have yet to break par. I was -1 through 7 but got greedy after a poor tee shot and chunked a hero recovery attempt instead of punching out and just trying to make par.

Was +2 thru 5 holes and proceeded to go birdie, birdie, eagle, birde to finish the front with a 33......should have stopped drinking at that point, but didn't and the back got a little sloppy....but still a phenominal ballsriking day

1 under Par and it was 20+ years ago.  It was the only time also.  I had been close many times before that but always blew it on one of the last 2 holes.   Still remember how nice it felt.  In 2017 I was making significant progress again towards this.  Then injuries hit in 2018 & 2019 and now my game is just not even close.

When I was in high school my home course was basically the most flat/basic/short little 9-hole course you can imagine. I would play it just about everyday in the summer so I got really got used to the shots I needed to hit. I remember my lowest score being -2 (33). That's still the only course I've ever even shot par at

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
