112 the other week. Disgusted with myself and 4th bad round in a row.  Nearly walked away from the game altogether after the 4th time seeing the handicap go up again.

I shot 104 a few weeks ago. I was ill with the flu and could barely stand up straight without becoming dizzy and feeling like I would pass out. I should not have played golf, but I had already spent 3 straight days confined to my couch and thought a little fresh air would do me good. Unfortunately I was still very lethargic and weak and it showed.

121.  I'm posting now, even though it's early in the season, because I really hope I don't ever shoot worse than that.

84... Went 12 over through 8 holes and then played the last 10 even.. First time out in 5 days and it really showed.. Found the correct club path and swing again on the back tho.

93 for the team in french 4th league.

about 120 mile wind, that ok it's windy in my place as well, but 5 greens just did'nt hold the ball.

short putts had huge break, I started putting soft to get tap ins and finally I never got anything in. ball striking was  already out of confidence after 3 holes, did'nt get back on that either.

the next day I played 90, same punishment, more wind.

Holy crap.  As 9 and 12 hcps, if those are your worst scores, remind me not to play you in any kind of net game!

I threw up (good term for it) a 91 back in February when I tried to play through some developing tendinitis.  Not too smart......

In your defense i haven't updated my handicap recently.. It was kind of a rough guess but I've been consistently shooting from 74-79 and anything above 80 is displeasing lately. Swing is coming around for tournament season!

93, the first round of 18 holes back in April.  I also had a 46 on a 9 hole round on a very windy day earlier this month.

It's not technically this year, but it's still in my last 20, so I guess it counts.  Back at Christmas time, playing my brother's Country Club for the first time, I managed a 98.  I think it's also very safe to say that that is my worst score this millenium. :)  It's a fairly easy, straightforward course, but I was having an off day (obviously) and to top things off, it was raining.

For those unfamiliar .... us Southern Californians don't handle rain too well. ;)

I haven't put up any really bad 18 hole scores in a while. But I have had some horrid 9 hole scores that paired together ended up being low to mid 90's recently. Handful of 46's and one 48. On easy courses to boot so the differentials were HIGH. I don't think I put up anything higher than an 88 the entire off-season. I still posted the scores even though they didn't count. Was just looking at them trying to figure out what went wrong in May. I've played enough this month that my last 20 and 10 best is starting to be affected by recent bad play. I haven't depleted what was good in 2012 yet because we just started 04/01/2013.

then you are no where near  a 9 handicap if you are shooting 74-49.  I'm a 1 and thats what I shoot most of the time...  Is your course rating 58?  My course is 74.2

The course I work at is where I normally play.. It's a smaller and shorter course rating is 67.6 or something around 67.. Nothing more than 6600 yards. And my handicap hasn't been updated since last fall.. Haven't got around to putting in scores

    • The course with my absolute favorite greens is Eaton Country Club which, despite the name, is far cheaper golf than most courses. A membership is something around $100 a month with no initiation fee or food requirement if I remember correctly. Play golf once a week and you're paying only $25 a round with cart for 18 holes, which is a far better deal than any other course in the area (the 9 hole course I work at is the cheapest in my city at $25 for 9 holes with cart). The greens at this course stimp between 11 and 12 on a daily basis and are the smoothest that I've ever set foot on. Their maintenance crew is fantastic about fixing every little imperfection in the greens. They go over them with a fine-toothed comb every evening to fix anything on the green.  I know there must be some kind of limit to how much play a green like this could sustain, but the course has looked this way every time I've played it (including weekends, weekdays, and such). It's not an enormously busy golf course though, and I don't think it would work on the courses that regularly see 200 or more golfers. I would be willing to bet good money though that, given equal traffic, good maintenance will definitely produce a much higher quality putting surface. The course I used to work for had two people assigned to fix ball marks on the course once a week, both of which had issues with their backs that made bending over for any extended period of time uncomfortable. The greens at that course clearly showed it, with unfixed or only partially fixed ball marks marring every putting surface. The course I currently work at has a maintenance crew that fixes marks whenever they're out to water as well as marshalls that are assigned a couple of holes to maintain during their shifts and I notice that the greens here have many fewer ball marks across the greens. The maintenance crew is also diligent when it comes to regularly verticutting, needle-tining, etc. all of the greens to ensure that they're in top shape. They water the greens up to four times a day depending on the weather conditions as compared to the old course only watering in the evenings and sometimes mornings to save money. As a result the greens at my current course are much more lush and smooth than those at the course I used to work and play at, and I know the difference is the care and attention to the maintenance of the greens (they have similar player traffic).
    • To clarify, I have a push cart. I don't have an umbrella, yet. That probably would have done loads of good keeping the sun from beating down on me. I've got one picked out, but just haven't pulled the trigger yet.  Shooting an 86 was a "decent" to "good" round for me. I felt like I played well. My ball striking was above average today. I had 7 GIR and 7 nGIR. I had 37 putts today, which was my score killer. Oddly enough, most of my 3 putts were on my GIRs! I say this because in the super heat I would think that ball striking would be the first to go, but it didn't for me. Putting was mainly because I'm still working on breaking old habits I had with my old putter and moving to my new putter. Lines were always spot on but I would go back to "popping" the ball like I did with my old putter and would lose it way past the hole.  Definitely need to pick up that umbrella. I imagine that would help a ton. I'm 28 years old and in pretty darn good health/shape and I would have probably died had I actually carried my bag today... lol. Even my lighter "carry" bag.
    • For irons, last year at a Titleist fitting they said I should get the AP1's with the XP 90 gram shaft with a +1/2.  This year I did another free open fitting and they said they wouldn't need to adjust the shaft but I don't remember what shaft they recommended.  Just got fit for a driver last Thursday but i don't think that helps. Scheduled a fitting for Saturday afternoon but who knows if the clubs will still be available then. 
    • I would say nicer golf courses tend to have better greens because of the money it takes to maintain them.  I would say that greens that can routinely hold up to being cut short probably have a healthier denser grass with stronger root systems that allow it to resist damage from pitch marks. I've played on course in Dayton where a pitch mark will just tear up the green versus another course where it just leaves a slight indentation. 
    • Give that man an icy cold beer, stat! I'm relatively young, and I'd take the cart for the breeze between shots and holes as well as the portable shade. What's the point in suffering unless you are practicing for competition in similar conditions? For anyone, I think the physical metabolic toll of moving all that water through to stay cool would tend to lower scores. But you do get longer drives than typical playing conditions, and you may feel extra limber. Older folks face potential heat stroke risk, because they aren't as efficient with heat regulation as a healthy adult. If you are healthy and that's your only day free to play, why not.
