I hit 3 par 5's in two plus I drove a par 4. I was actually surprised myself when I saw my stats. Here is the scorecard:

I revived this thread because I shot the lowest score of my life today. 65 (-7) at my home course Rating/Slope 71.6/123. I have been playing really well lately and had a feeling I had it in me to go p

6495 yard course 71.3par/126 I shot an 86. 7 pars. Best game of my life.. and it happened only 1 hour ago! Super Twilight! All this practice and learning from this forum has paid off tremendously. I

+1 (73) last year.  Was -4 after the front 9, but limped home on the back nine.

I have been playing pretty seriously the last three months and I just bought new clubs last week.  My second time out with them I shot a 79 which is my lowest round ever.  I started using my new four iron instead of my olddd driver and it took 5 or 6 strokes off my game.  I don't feel very manly though.

I feel ya. I know that I could consistently knock several strokes off every round if I just hit a 3 iron off the tee instead of my driver. However, I never do that because in the end I really need/want to lock in a consistently straight drive.

82 at Plum Creek in Kyle, TX

Went there on a whim while travelling with the girlfriend (now fiancee).

That was a magical day.  Couldn't miss the green from 150 out if I had wanted to.

Best 9 was even par.

Best 18 was 76 on a par 70, and a few 79's on par 72's.

I made it to a 9 handicap this season but then put together a string of really bad rounds (like 12 - 3 weeks worth) to put me back up to a 12.  I've produced a pinched nerve in my lower back so I'm making some changes to make my swing less violent and it seems to be working (the 76 was last Tuesday)

This year I have shot 76 to 101.  Mostly in the mid-to-high 80's (with 3 rounds under 80!).

Shot a 78 TODAY! 42 on the front, 36 on the back. The worst part is I was -2 coming into 18 and blew it with a double bogey. Oh well, I'm so pumped to finally break 80.

Golf courses are not all equal!  It sure would be nice if people would post the CR and SLOPE from the tees they played when sharing scores.

IE....scoring 'XX' means absolutely nothing without perspective.

So....did you score "XX" on a 5200yd course with a 67CR and 103 slope, or was it a 7200yd course with a 77Cr and 149slope?   The difference is HUGE!!!  For me, reading that somebody shot XX without a qualifier is meaningless.  Without a qualifier, I assume the course is a short wide-open goat track...LOL

I agree with all of that except the "goat track" part. Ha ha! The only one of those that I've played is a b#%^*.

There's one here that truly qualifies as a very short goat tract that is so bad there is no way to shoot a decent score on it. Anything under 50 putts would probably be the course record. Only two kinds of people play there. Tourists that have no idea how bad it is and people too drunk to care. Does have the hardest par 3 in the world though. 235 yards with a big oak tree in the middle of the fairway blocking the green, which slopes so much left to right that even if you place a ball on the green by hand it won't stay on. All you can do is keep putting at the hole from off the green until you finally get lucky and make one.

That course does have a very useful purpose though. Since all drunks and all manner of idiots are welcome there it keeps them away from the courses the rest of us play.

Darius here -

My best 81 - I think it was Lake Presidential in or around DC.  Why I have no idea it was my first time on the course and everything just worked that day.  I wanna relive that

Worst (since i have been sorta decent) - 103 - the Highlands golf course Bella Vista AR - its a tight course and I was spraying every club i had - i swear i lost a ball with my putter on the green

I have been playing for a little over 6 years

If you are big and tall check out Aveo Golf  - please (really I'm begging you to)

79, par 72 (69.2/120).   Before that, 82 was my best 18 hole score.   I thought breaking 79 had to be a error free (relatively speaking, of course) round but I was wrong.    I felt I've made 4 - 6 errors I could have avoided.   The round gave me hope that I can go much lower but I have yet to match it, 6 months later and counting.

Holy crap!

What was the course rating? Tell us about it....

it was an unrated par 60 exec course..........LOL

As I was saying.....a score without a slope/CR is meaningless!!  But yes, I broke 60............Hehe...which means nothing!
