I honestly don't even know how someone shoots a 14. 

I shot an 86 with a 13 on my card in the club championship last year. 3 balls OB off the tee, spin a wedge back off the green into the water. 2 putt.

they miss a 3 footer for 13 and tap in.

FYI, I just created this thread to collect singe-hole meltdown stories:  

Hold my beer....

  Come on guys....Does nobody remember the awesome Kevin Na 16 he dropped a few yrs back on a hole.  Watching that will forever be etched in my mind 

I just watched that again. That's disheartening to watch..

Ask Kevin Na...

When I first saw the number 127 I was thinking for 2 rounds, that's impressive... Oh wait, for one round. :bugout:

Sorry if I'm digressing but I got a 13 the other month on 16 at the Stadium Course, PGA West.  I had no penalty strokes and hit mostly solid shots.  I just didn't know the hole and to avoid the two bunkers at all costs.  4 shots to get out of the fairway bunker with all bad lies.  5 shots to get out of the green side bunker till I had enough practice to learn to hit it 30 feet high.

Gratuitous extra, sorry -- Island green 17 I lipped out the hole in one and tapped in my birdie.

Arnold Palmer once made a 13 on this hole at Westborough CC in St. Louis.

     No. 15, Par 3, 180 yards from back. Creek front and right, OB left and back.

C'mon give the guy a break. He was only 58 shots off the lead. Shoot a solid 18 the next day and he's right back in it. 

Had a buddy tell me about a local "assistant pro" (or was that assistant "pro") who entered a qualifier. Went something like quad, quad, triple and was then asked to leave so he wouldn't distract other players. Can't vouch for truthfulness of the story but have no reason to doubt my buddy either.

Yeah.  More than anything, I feel bad for the guys that had to play with this clown all day...

Could be a score from a guy that tried to play through an injury.  Could be a score from a pro who isn't very good.

The question that comes up in my mind is, why? I don't think it is worth playing in either of these scenarios and he really should have packed it in after 9.

Honestly, if I knew what I was going to shoot each time, I wouldn't get out of bed half the time. I am sure he had ever cell of his body asking him to pack it up after 9 but I am also sure he thought it was a better idea to man up and finish the round.

I guess the headlines would still have read : "Pro shoots 68...on the front 9..calls it quits" Not sure any less embarrassing. I am sure over the next few days more details of his actual skill level will emerge.

Isn't that a bit contradictory? A pro who isn't very good? :whistle:

Which ties back into the "would you take advice/lessons from someone who sucks" thread... ;-)

    • I’ve almost completed the main game of Hollow Knight. An incredible game that I knew nothing about before playing. It’s a Metroidvania like game and quite extensive. It feels like the Soulsborne of platformers. Somewhat in the vein of the Ori games, but more extensive and challenging. It’s not as difficult as games like Wings og Vi, Boshy and Roah, but takes some precise controlling. You can become a bit OP by collecting and upgrading, which makes it more manageable, not too different from Soulsborne.
    • Day 517: Played 18 today with new concepts/feels from my lesson to address my bad hook misses. Didn’t feel like I was playing particularly great, but scored well (79), and zero hooks. Shots that I didn’t control the club face well were straight fades or slightly pushed fades, all playable. Driver wasn’t good today but only hit it on three holes.
    • Sugar Hill Golf Club - Front Nine 49 Stupid mistakes cost me on three holes. I went bogey, triple (8 on a par 5), bogey, double, bogey, bogey, double, bogey, par.  On both doubles, I couldn't find my ball and had to take a drop.  On the first one, I never heard it hit any trees or anything, but I lost it into the setting sun.  I have no doubt that it was somewhere in the deep Bermuda rough along the right side of the fairway, but I never found it.  The second was well struck (out of the rough because of a topped 3 hybrid) and based on my aim, it should have been okay, but it was nowhere to be found.  The par-five ninth was a series of five almost perfect shots on a difficult, sloping double dogleg hole.
    • Thank you I appreciate that. What made the birdies so nice that all my shots in both of them were great shots. One thing a person of my handicap has a hard time doing is being consistent. When I I'm consistent, even only through one hole or two, it feels great. I shot an 80 on the course which was also very good for my level, and this was after shooting 102 just days before , LOL.
    • First off, is this the oldest topic in the forum? 15 Years, wow. This discussion about the greatest of all time is mute.  All sports have the same point and counterpoints. Most Home-runs, best hitter in baseball, most Super Bowl Rings, on and on. Comparing athletes from different eras are practically impossible. From changes ranging from physicality to equipment, travel, nutrition, playing conditions, shorter courses vs longer courses, stadiums indoor vs outdoor, astroturf, lowering the mounds, 3 point lines, instant replay and more. Best of an “ERA” I could believe in that. Sustainability in a sport is a good measure, but not those that linger.  Having the most Majors?  Most Super Bowl Trophies? Individual sports, Team Sports? Jack vs Tiger?  Take your pick.
