So played yesterday at a course called canal at delecour. Course rating of 72.3 and slope of 135, 6600 yards from blue tees. First hole I tripled....ended up with 45 on the front with one birdie. The back nine was going good after 6 sitting at 3 over with one birdie. Then I collapsed. Ended with triple, quad, bogey. Ended with a 48. So 93. I seriously struggled with my irons, mainly my 70-100 yard shots. Driver was great, had 32 putts. But I couldn't believe it.

Anyone else have these kinda days?

Of course. It happens to us all. Last year in high school, I shot 39, 42, and 41 in matches leading up to a tournament at my home course. I shot a 96 from the whites (6000 yards), and I usually play the blues (6600) or the tips (7100). I played well leading into it, had an advantage since I knew the course, but just had a terrible day. It happens, and while certain aspects like wedge shots for example may be an issue you should be concerned with, it's probably just a mistake that you shot a 93 and it's a day that everything just went wrong. Practice then play the next chance you can, and good luck!

You're not serious, right?

a 93 is better then 99% of all golfers shoot!

Really? Cause I've been shooting in the mid 90's only after three months of golf. I think 60% would be more accurate...

A few months ago I followed up 18 hole rounds of 79 and 77 with a 9 hole round of 49. Just felt like everything went wrong at once. I hit the range a few times over the next couple weeks and within a few rounds I was back to normal. I think my problem was leaving too much weight on my right side-but I had no idea what was going wrong while it was happening, and there are few things that are as completely frustrating.

No I think 90% is about right, very few golfer can break 100 by the rules of of golf

Boy, I think everyone who plays golf has been there.
I remember this year shooting 78 one day and following it up with 96 a week later. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. It seemed like everything was going wrong.

I love that course. It's typically fair, but there a couple holes where experience helps. The first hole will bite you! Typically I'd err on the side of caution there - hit less club off the tee - but there are a couple holes where you have no choice but to play agressive - you gotta have the thinking cap on out there. I had 15 good holes out there last fall - and three triples. I replayed those 3 holes a few times - next time out I'll probably par them and triple three others - what a game!?!

It is a great course. The rough is unbelievably hard to hit out of. It's sticky as tar, and about 6 inches long right off the fairway. You're right on the first hole. I teed off with my 4 hybrid, but hit it left into the rough, buried about 4 inches there is no way I could get to the ball, so I couldn't get any power on it, so played it back into the fairway, then hit my next into the bunker. Got out JUST, then 3 putted LOL.

the greens were extremely fast, probably the fastest I have ever played on.....and the greens are very hilly.

I've had some horrid rounds this year. I've shot in the 90s twice. It doesn't feel good when you know you can shoot with ease 81 or 82.

I just say it was a round to help work on my attitude. I've really learned how to enjoy bad golf this year and that is much different than 2 years ago. I just make jokes about it, saying I have perfected the double bogey, or hit the cycle, bogie, double, triple, quad all in nine holes. WTF am I doing?

Yeah I think its vital to take it as it is and just laugh. Of course it is frustrating, but it's funny too. I laughed every time I found my ball in the rough, buried.

i am just glad it didn't change my handicap. I stayed in single digits.

Yeah I guess every golfer has at least one of those rounds.

Rounds? Hell I've had that kind of thing happen from the front 9 to the back 9! :)

I think my "record" ridiculous score was on vacation once, when I shot 52 on the front and 39 on the back. I've also done the 47-37 thing more than once.

    • Here you go. A better Google view of the course.
    • I had studied the numbers a lot a while ago and  do know most of us (including me) definitely think they get closer than they do more often. And there is no doubt this was a great day for Taylor. I don't think he missed a green on the second shot except once. That is not a typical day. And close is a very unspecific term I should know better than to use. All relative. Close for me is anywhere on the green, sadly and that is what I need to work on. Same with putting...I love watching guys who routinely ship it 5' past the hole from 10' out get upset because "I should have made that. Practically a gimme"...uh, no it wasn't...statistically, it isn't a gimme for the best players in the world, that guy it is a low percentage attempt. Intellectually i know that but do sometimes forget it in the moment.   At the same time, I definitely need to work on my approaches. Per Strokes gained, they are my weakest area...just not accurate from there at a level that matches the rest of my game. Putting, despite declining, is the strongest at -.02, approaches at -.45. Seems like low-hanging fruit lol. I have no illusions I will stick it tour close but would be nice to find the green from 150 and in instead of my current average of 3.6/round. Seems...bad. But I like checking in to see where I need to put the 65% time.

Stonelick is almost the furthest you can get away from Akron in Ohio.   
    • Grade: B+ Likes: Simple, good drill that I use fairly often. Clear audio, picture. Good use of Tour players (well, at least one) to show this. Dislikes: I didn't love the explanation if you were struggling to get the drill right. He just kept telling you about the drill, and how it would improve contact. Could have used some slow-mo, but it would have shown him fighting off the wrists a bit more, I think. Would have loved to show advanced versions, like where you can manipulate the path a bit by how much the arms come off the chest, etc.
