recently I had a similar round. The front 9 was atrocious... I appeared to be well on my way to a +100 round. Then my playing partner watched me hit a good drive and commented on the difference in my tempo. Something about him pointing that out stuck with me and I finished really strong. I went par,par, birdie, par, par at one stretch and finished the round at my typical 92- 95

Made 7 birdies once and shot even par. Another round I started with an 10 (par 5) and shot 79 on a tough course (Spyglass).

This happens a lot to me. Just today, played a 9 hole par-3 course. Shot 13 over on the first 9 (9 over on first 3), 5 over playing the same 9 again... I like to blame it on 'not being warmed up'...yet in the end it just means I'm still very inconsistent.

Years ago at Mountain View golf course in central NJ, I had a round where I chipped/putted in from off the green 5 times. Three times for birdie, but had several double bogeys as well. Really worked out to a decent score, but it was all over the place. I pulled out some great recovery shots, but also hit some real stinkers. It was a ride like few rounds I've had since Lot of fun, I recall playing with some cool guys and we had a lot of fun.

I had it happen in tryouts where I was -1 through the front nine, in the lead beating the player who won conference last year, then went +4 on the back nine due to some stupid shots to finish at +3 to his -2. I've also had it happen where I shot a five over on the front and two under on the back to end up with the same score. Just depends on my approach shots and how close they end up to the pin.

My round today was truly up and down. Shot 59 on the first nine and 39 on the second nine. I was really proud that I kept my composure while recording a 10 on a par 4 and a 15 on a par 5 the first nine. Funny thing is the money ended up even at the end of the day.

I'm sure I've had many rounds with a 10 shot or more difference between 9's. First time I shot 70 was a 30 front and 40 back. five birdies an eagle and I still was only -1 for the day.

I recall shooting 45-35, 4?-34.....2 or 3 birdies in a nine really help the score!

A few weeks ago I went 55 on the front and 40 on the back. Didn't do anything but hit the bathroom at the turn.

Go figure.

I've shot 90 before with a 3 over back nine before. That was an interesting day...

Every time I play, I'm trying to get up and down on nearly every damn hole. :-$

nearly every round, the back nine is usually much better than the front

My most extreme round came on a 36-36=par 72 course.

This was almost 15 years ago when I caught a terrible case of the shanks on the front, but played great on the back.......... 50-35....a 15 stroke differential between Nines!!   LOL....I have yet to card another 50 since that day.  thank heavens!  This was circa 2000 when I was about a 8-9hc.

2 years ago when I was shooting 50 maybe, I went bogey, triple, triple, then played 1 under other than a drive that I bombed and it hit a sprinkler head and went in the water. And a year ago I shot +10 on the front then -1 on the back with a double, in a tournament

    • I know this is "under review" so to speak, but I would echo this. I went back Jeremie's swing thread; his receptivity to direction and subsequent swing changes has demonstrated his dedication, and his obedience has born out marked improvement. Nice job, Jeremie!
    • Errrr.... Typo: Els and not Else... Sorry about that :)
      Is there a way to edit a topic started post?
    • I readily admit that I'm a baby when it comes to humidity. Thankfully I live in a place where I don't usually have to worry about it.
    • Lessons, depending on your arrangement with your home course, can be a much better way to make money than if you just work in the shop.  In the shop I would imagine you're not making much more than $15 an hour, even as a professional, assuming that you aren't salaried to run the golf operation for a city. Even if you charged a relatively cheap rate of $50 an hour for lessons, and the course took half of your inexpensive fee, you would be making $10 more an hour than you would otherwise and it might be more enjoyable that pro shop work for you. Playing lessons could be even more lucrative depending on your rates, and you can even play some golf yourself (either playing with the player or demonstrating a shot, for example).  Youth programs can be highly profitable if that's something you're interested in. A local course with two PGA professionals has a weekly group lesson for junior golfers at $20 per person. On the days that this program is running they easily have 30-40 kids ($600-800) out there working on chipping and putting (and then the kids go out to walk nine holes afterwords). Depending on how your course operates and how busy it is this is something you could look into organizing. Put up flyers both on the course and in public areas where you are allowed to post things to get the word out. If you are somewhat tech and business inclined it might be a good idea to look into starting up a small business of your own selling golf apparel and equipment. Take advantage of your PGA membership and start up accounts with the major brands such as Titleist, PING, Taylormade, Scotty Cameron (they kind of do their stuff separate from Titleist) and put up a storefront on your own website. Squarespace is one web-hosting company I know of that does an excellent job of making it easy for you to put together what you want. Nearly everything in most golf shops is marked up at keystone pricing or higher, so there is definitely profit to be made if you can get some web traffic (and it never hurts to have it up for people to stumble upon).  Look up public courses in your area and figure out who the person in charge of contracting out the golf courses is. The title in my city is the "Golf Operations Manager", but this varies from city to city. Get to know this person and learn when the management contracts for various courses expire so you can put your bid in to run one of the courses on behalf of the city. This is where you'd likely end up making the most money, but it would be the most administrative of the options. You would likely be responsible for hiring, firing, reports, and other day to day tasks but the big advantage is that the city, in most cases, will allow you to use the pro shop to sell your own merchandise. This becomes huge since then the profits (or at least a large portion of them) from every pro shop sale goes into your pocket, though it does come with the added work of managing inventory and negotiating terms with the city. This is, though, by far the most lucrative option that would be somewhat easily (with enough background work and a good proposal/interview) attainable. One other thing, along the lines of the previous point, that you could do is see if there are any professionals that are contracted to run two golf courses through the city. My city currently works this way, but the professional has to subcontract the second course to another PGA professional in order to manage everything smoothly. As a result of this the professional at the course I work for (the subcontracted professional) is now a near shoe-in to win the bid to manage the golf course he's been running when the city contract becomes available this January, just because he has been running the show there for the last four years. Continuing to excel at your current position at the golf course while networking and getting to know your customers (a large factor for the aforementioned pro is that he has developed close ties with the clientele and has increased revenue as a result) is something that will be viewed favorably if you later put in a bid to manage the course.
    • It took me two years to get from a 24 handicap (my starting point) to about a 6-8 handicap when I started playing seriously. It then took me another two years to get from about a 7 to a 2. In the last year I had a big jump that got me from the 2 handicap to my current +1.5, which I would consider to be the largest leap I've ever made (which is somewhat funny, considering I've probably practiced the least in the last year as compared to previous years). It just kind of clicked for me that it's okay to expect to make birdies, whereas before I felt like I never could make any.
