Shot my lowest round today of 78. Been playing golf for about 6 and half months now and this was my first time breaking 80. Before this I had shot 82 a few weeks back but during my high school season my lowest round was I think like a 95. Hoping to be shooting consistently in the 70's this upcoming year!

I actually started off really badly today, started bogey, double two of the easiest holes on the course then I skipped 3-6 and played 7-18 because of how many people were in front of me when I teed off. I shot a 36-42, 36 on the back, I only hit 7 greens and had a total of 9 near greens but my chipping was good. I shot an 86 yesterday and I hit 12 greens so my ball striking has been there the last 2 weeks or so but my short game has been awful. Today was the first time I ever had less then 30 putts!

Edit: Course was par 72, 73.4, 7024 yards

74 on a par 72.  Mostly from my best ever 9 hole score, 33 on the par 36 back nine.

If I remember correctly I had a par 5 eagle, par 3 birdie, and 7 pars on the back.  A bunch of semi-miracle recoveries through the round.  Typical driver miss pushed right into the trees followed by 100-150 yard punch slice 3i under the trees, rolled down the fairway onto the green, two putt par...

I think my best round ever, however, was a 78 from the tips at Butlers Lakeside (Elizabeth PA) when I had a 9 on a Par 4, and an 8 on a Par 5.  Shot -2 on the other 16 holes.

This reminds me of a playing partner/friend of mine during a club championship qualifier for match play.   He was -4 through 13.  The 14th hole was a par5.......he hit into the woods and spent about 4 strokes trying to get out!!!!   He carded a 9!!!!  what impressed me was he parred the final 4 holes after that disaster to shoot even par.   That took some STONES...IMO!!  I have no clue what I shot...LOL

I don't know my lowest tourney round because I've played in so many the years...not so much recent years.   I also played in pot-games that weren't tourney rounds, but they meant as much or more to me because money was on the line.  All of these rounds blend together in my memory.

My lowest round is a -4 68 on a par72 course with a 72.5CR and 137 slope.  Another round I am equally proud of is a level par 72 on a long 7100+yd course with a 75.1CR 141 slope.

I've scored even par or lower on 7 different championship courses. ............and I am one of those guys that doesn't play around much!!

Tournament 18 : 70 (-2)
Casual 18 : 64 (-8)
Tournament 9 : 36 (even)
Casual 9 : 31 (-5)

If you want to count the PAT test as a tournament then yeah I've shot a 70 there.  That was with hitting 4-iron off of almost every tee because my driver was really bad that day and I didn't need to hit anything too long.  The tournament 9 was in high school where I helped our team win a multi-team tourney, which was cool.

My casual 18 was interesting.  I wasn't hitting spectacular shots into the greens, but I was sinking every putt.  Everything out to 30ft or so would just drop.  I had another round of 65 where I was hitting awesome shots into the greens and having tapins for birdies.  So kinda both worlds there.  The casual 9 was after work one day and my game was on.  Hit every green and was putting well.

Tournament 78

Casual 77

The tournament score was in our B Flight Final (match play) and it was the first time I ever broke 80. I was so focused on the match that I wasn't paying attention to the score. I have broken 80 many times since and have shot 77 three times in casual rounds.

    • Johnny Miller's Pure Golf. Came out in the mid 70's. It was a game changer for me, especially when I needed some help throttling back and not trying to hit heroic shots at every opportunity.
    • Temp 44, damp, cloudy, wind gusting into the upper 20's. Arthritis has the hands so bound up I couldn't even open up a Ziplock bag.  Arthritic spine is killing me. Tee time at 12:34. I'll do my best, but days like this are why I don't even try to track a handicap. I can shoot 78 one day and 108 the next....
    • Here’s a 63 year old woman who doing something similar. She never went to college before, so there is no eligibility issue. Meet the 63-year-old college athlete with a killer golf swing Debbie Blount is a 63-year-old sophomore at Reinhardt University and a beloved member of the women's golf team. As one of the oldest student athletes in the US, her friends call her "Ancient Eagle," after Reinhardt's...  
    • Heck, I am 62 and on good days still swing the driver well over 100 mph,  but I am much more consistent with a spinnier 10.5 degree Ping G400 than I am with a 12 degree SLDR. Granted, when I absolutely pound one the SLDR will go further, but not down wind, not enough backspin with the low spin driver to keep it airborne.
    • The pandemic and my surgery screwed things up the past couple years. 2020 ended 12/18/2020, after 9 holes at Washtenaw.  I was feeling poorly and unknown to me, I was going to take an ambulance ride the next morning to the ER.  Fast forward to this year, a buddy and I teed it up at Whispering Willows (Livonia) on March 12.  I was still recovering from surgery but the weather was cooperating so I booked a tee time to see if I could still swing a club.  I could (barely) and so on went the season. Courses start to close down once we hit November.  I will try to keep playing until the ground is frozen, covered with snow or no course will let me play.  I am going to say 12/15 will be that last day and 3/15/2022 will be the dawn of the next season.
