So, on a good, but not exceptional, day, what are you shooting? You can also give your exceptional scores if you want.

For me, I’ll shoot high 80s on a good day on my home course. For example, I shot 87 on the home track on Saturday. Could’ve been better too. On an exceptional day, I can shoot mid/low 80s. When I really get dialed, I can go ultra low. In back to back rounds about two months ago, I shot 80 and 83. The 80 could’ve been a 77 or 78 if it wasn’t for a triple on the third and doubles on both par 3s on the back. Those are still my two lowest scores today.

I said low to mid 90's which is an average day.  My new course is tough for this 16 HCP and a great day for me is high 80's.  Low 90's is the median.

As an 8 cap....a good day is high 70's....in the past 44 years....my daily golf target is to shoot 79 or better.....I hate shooting 80 or 81....especially if I choked on the last few holes.

I also play tees long enough to challenge me so that I also use the majority of clubs in my bag....I don't get much joy if I'm playing shorter tees just to be able to post a lower score.

On a good day it will be high 70's. 

Although when I am in a slump, I will take anything in the 80's.

A good day for me would be playing even, or slightly better against my course handicap. Depending on the course and the tees, I think this is usually somewhere in the range of 84-87.

If I don't break 74 I am ticked off.  😀  Though this year is a comeback from two torn tendons in my elbow.  Sheesh, I'd take a 74 right now be be a happy camper.

I said high 80s, which is about in line with my course handicap (15), though only playing every couple weeks has both my scores and handicap climbing pretty consistently. Last year, when I was playing a few times each week, I probably would have said low-mid 80s.

Playing so many different courses makes this difficult to pinpoint.    A score in the low to mid 80s on my "home" course that I've played 5 times is a good score for me.   I've played other courses where I've shot 80 and it was a good round.   Conversely, I've played courses and shot high 80s and felt I played as well as the day I've shot 80 at an easier course. 

I usually judge a good round by how well I feel I've stuck the ball.   Score although "the" indicator sometimes isn't the best way to determine if I've played well.

I am okay with any score that starts with an 8.  Obviously an 80 is very different from an 89; but I'll take it.  70-something is a rare treat.  90-something...well...let's avoid that sort of outcome in the future.

I went with high 80's as what I consider good for me 88-91 wasn't an option. If I shoot 83-86 on the same course, I feel I have had a great day. Amazing that eliminating a couple doubles or not having a triple on the card can make you feel so much better about your round.

I checked "high seventies."  When I am playing well, my expectation is under "80".  When I play at my best, a handful of times a year, mid-70's.  My average score since 7/1/2020 is 81.5 so more than half the time I am not meeting my expectations.

A buddy once said, "79 is about 3 shots better than an 80."  Yes, it is absurd but I sort of feel the same way.

High seventies for me. The majority of my scores this year have fallen in the 75-80 range, and I have been playing "good" golf for me most of this year.

A great day for me this year has been 72-74, still havent broken par yet over 18 holes, but I have been playing super consistent golf for the most part so I'm not too upset

My goal every time I tee it up is to break 90. I don't do it very much so a "good" score for me is high 80's. My best rounds in a long time is 85 twice last year, and my best score of all time is 84.

That’s always my goal when I go out and play: limit my “off” holes to doubles. In fact, my 87 this past weekend was triple-free. Six months ago, my odds of carding at least one triple in eighteen holes was quite high. Now, it’s probably closer to 50-50, and it’s usually just one triple on the card now.

78s-81s are good scores, and are not to uncommon for me. I owe my consistent, lower scores to my various practice routines. 

I voted for low/mid 80s

    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
    • Day 50 - Hitting more balls indoors, just trying to get used to swinging indoors. 
    • We used lugloc and used it Hawaii to Scotland, Hawaii to Sydney, to Auckland and Hawaii to Pinehurst to Alabama to Hawaii, and a few west coast trips. I think when we landed in Edinburgh it took a 1/2 hr to confirm but was able to confirm at JFK, and heathrow. I have lost clubs before on a mainland trip and love seeing that the clubs and luggage are with me.    Aloha, iSank
    • Day 124.   I spent ten minutes after work hitting 7-iron shots, off a mat, into a net, real balls, indoors.
