Breaking 80. I broke 90 pretty quickly after I took up the game again (I quit after high school and didn't play again until I was 28), because I already had a basic knowledge from my caddying days. It took me a long time to get under 80, and it was all in my head. I would become aware at some point of the round that I was on track and it just derailed me. One day, I was 2 over after 12 holes. I said to myself on the 13th tee that I only needed to make 5 bogies and a par going in and I shoot 79. What kind of thinking is that? But it happened all the time.

I finally did it in a Club Championship A flight final (match play) because I was so focused on every single shot that I was never aware of what my score was. I ended up shooting a 78, but I lost the match on the 19th hole. Bittersweet, to say the least.

I clearly remember the first time I broke 100 and I remember where I played and what I scored because it was a 93!!    With that said, I didn't vote for that...LOL

My scores dropped so fast that I don't even remember the first time I broke 90 or 80 for the first time.    I voted for breaking 70 because that was a pretty big deal for me, and it was something I never thought would happen.

Breaking infinity.  Took my son on his 2nd ever golf round.  He's 19 months old, but putted the ball with a little help from Dad, about 8 ft or so.  He ran after it, and wanted to putt again.

2nd milestone was playing golf with my Dad at his corporate tourney in the 1990's.  1st time to ever break 90, and all his work buddies were giving me grief about my long hair, and we played from the blues.

Saw this thread and was thinking of starting a new one about breaking 100. I don't think I will forget 93 on 8th of June 2013. It's been a long time coming. Its also ironic as this was the same course when I decided to quit because I couldn't see the point of playing golf wasn't fun I wasn't improving not enough time to practice or play. That was 3 years ago only decided to play again 9 months ago. I have a practice net and just leave it out. Incredible sense of satisfaction to know I can play a bit. It seemed easy too which is weird and like why has it been 6 years for me to do this? 90 which seemed so far away doesn't seem to be that difficult as I just made only a few bad shots and it could be in the high 80's. If you can believe it my last round was 109 so really stoked right now glad I broke 100 comfortably

Although I had done it twice before the "breaking 80" round that meant the most to me was shooting a 78 at PGA West's Palmer Private course.  Par 72, slope 146, course rating 74.3.  Other than five three putts it was the best round that I had ever played.

    • They’re having a bit of fun… Someone is taking this too serious. And what some guy on Twitter calls it doesn’t mean that was their intention. Does anyone believe the European team thought they would win a bunch of new fans in USA, playing against USA, by wearing silly hats? 🙄 The golf is serious when they get started playing, but this is also an opportunity to have some fun in a team event they rarely get to participate in. https://www.skysports.com/golf/ryder-cup/news/26733/12414595/ryder-cup-2020-europe-turn-on-cheesehead-charm-with-green-bay-packers-tribute-at-whistling-straits
    • First name and a reference to why there in my contacts list, otherwise I've forgotten them unless I'm in regular contact....
    • The difference is that he can carry it over to the course. 😄 I can also shape shots in every direction on the course, just not when I intend to. Push-draw becoming push-slice etc.
    • Ok guys you don't get it no biggie, I still think USA will lose with all the trippy stuff going on lol....
    • Day 53: Did some yardstick putting practice indoors, and some rehearsal/swing mapping with a PW, also indoors.
