I recently scored my two best rounds of the year back to back in totally different ways. The first one, I couldn't hit a fairway to save my life and was scrambling all day long because my driver was in the shitter, short and errant. But my irons were on enough to make 5 pars and a birdie (because of one of the only good drives I hit all day) and nothing more than a bogey, even though my birdie stroke on most holes was a wedge from 50-100 yards. Finished with an 11 over 83. I played the par 5s in 4 over &!*%!.
Next round, the following weekend, I fixed my driver, so much so that I hit 11 of 14 fairways, with the fairways missed being just off and not in trouble, long and straight. One of my playing partners remarked, "your tee shots have an extra lift today.". Anyway, I kept spraying my iron approaches and couldn't get close to the hole for good birdie looks or missed the green entirely. I had 9 pars, 8 bogeys and a double for 10 over 82. Ironically, I was consistent with my previous round in one respect: my crappy play of the par 5s, this time coming in at 3 over on them.
Could have had broke 80 twice if I just played the par 5s in even. Keep in mind, in the 36 hole layout I play, only 2 of the 8 par 5s are realistically reachable in two, mainly because they are straight, (but both are still over 510). 3 others are crazy doglegs and 2 are double doglegs and the 6th requires a 2nd shot carry of 230 over water. But, regardless, it's in my head.
