Do You Remember All of Your Shots in a Round?

Too late, it's probably ingrained in your long term memory by now.

My short term memory? yes. My long term memory? no. Golfers normally have a tendency to remember the good and forget the bad. We like to dwell upon our great and good shots.

My memory consists of: Hit 3 wood ok, irons sucked, wedges sucked, putter sucked.

Proceed to the range to practice 3 wood to get more distance.

I typically can remember every shot. Every now and then I can't recall maybe one shot, but that's it. I still remember shots from my first round of golf over 40 years ago. I remember my first par as though it were yesterday. But I can't remember my grandkids birthdays. I'm usually within a month or two though. :-)

Unfortunately yes. I need to forget the bad shots as soon as possible, but alas my mind likes to torture me to no end.

I can remember all the shots from my last several rounds. And if I sit and think about it, I can remember most shots from rounds I've played in my recent *last few months/year* history. You know you remember way too much and are going overboard with details when you are talking about your round and you can see the eyes of the person you are talking to start to glaze over. That's the sign to cut the detailed shot by shot playback of your round short rofl.

Just as long as you remember the wife's anniversary, otherwise there's no sense in leaving the golf course

A few years late here, but I find this topic interesting so I will give my insight. I remember usually every tee shot and iron shot very well, but I tend to forget short putts and chips. I think it’s just because they aren’t remarkable and they are very similar to each other. While drives and iron shots are very different from shot to shot so they kinda stick in my mind. Also I notice that when I play with buddies, and we are telling stories, and joking around I don’t remember many shots because my mind was somewhere else when I was hitting, but in tournament play and rounds by myself where I’m trying to track everything I always remember every shot.

Yes I do.  Each round, however, is erased by the next one.  I can tell you every shot I played, and what I was thinking at the time...until I play another round.  I overwrite the save.

I will usually remember all my shots until a few days after the round, even if I played every day in that stretch. I played 36 holes today (score posts coming soon), and tomorrow and maybe even Monday I could recall the overwhelming majority of my shots. 

If somebody here asked me what a certain shot was on a certain hole, I bet I could name it.

I remember every shot very well and use the new USGA GHIN system to post my stats. Even though I have no idea where my keys are right now.

I can usually remember every shot for a few days but after that I need to free up space on my mental hard drive and it gets those shots get auto-deleted.

I'll remember the really good or really bad for quite a while, but the average are gone after a day, but since I use GameGolf it helps remember the less memorable.

I recall every shot I hit... because that evening just before counting sheep I count various stats.  GIRs, Near GIRs and average club hit into the green.  That is a very telling stat that speaks to ease of approach shot and distance of drive/tee shot.  Also, for some weird reason I can remember 5-6 shots I hit in rounds as old as 6 months ago.  Good and bad, both.

I can not remember every single shot from a round regardless of how well or not I play unless--- I look at my score card from a particular round. Sure there are some memorable and not so memorable ones from a number of recent rounds that I can remember but not an entire rounds worth. I have tried to recall every shot from memory but I have to have my score card from the round to be reasonably close. Sometimes but not often even with the score card.

When I have trouble falling asleep, I do something similar or I go through a course in my head.
