I played the Old Course back to back days a couple weeks ago. Went 91-73.
It happens to me all the time... My last trip is just who I am... 82-86-96-80-75-80
Some of these variances are nuts! 😳Especially the 60’s to 90’s. Those fellas must be a head case and a half barring injury or illness.
I did 76 Thursday to 88 today. Seniors will understand, woke up stiff and sore, never got comfortable all day.
Oh yes, it happens. This Saturday, I shot 72, and then Sunday an 85. At least I can point to injury. After the first shot, I knew I should just pack it in, but I thought I could play through the pain (elbow). I was wrong, and now I'm going to have to take at least a week off.
Misery loves company. Just this weekend...Sat shot 82, Sun 97. Big bets on Sun so just about killed me.
As I approach 50, I'm unfortunately finding these kinds of wild swings in scoring a lot more common. Work and family limits the time for practice, and some days it feels like I woke up in a different body that has zero muscle memory of a golf swing. Not to mention the days when I suddenly lose all feel for putting and chipping ...
Shot 70 on a par 69 course. It was a municipal tournament. The following day I shot 85 on the same course. I was paired with two people I was very familiar with on day 1 and total strangers on day 2.
My buddies were joking that I cheated my way to the 1 over par score and on day 2 I could not do the same shenanigans. Haha!
Shot 50 on the front 9 once. -1 on the back 9.
That's golf for us suckers. lol
A month ago 38 - 47.
36 hole tourney couple of weeks ago I shot 71 - 81. Putter sucked big time on Sunday
The Company I worked for had just merged with another firm. I meet the new President - we talk golf and agree to a game next week. He mentions he's a scratch so I'm nervous and anxious to impress him - even though I was a 12 at the time. We were scheduled to play on the Monday. The weekend before I play a tough course and shoot 78 ! - second time ever breaking 80 and I'm brimming with confidence ready to impress my new boss. He takes me out to his course - I've played it numerous times - it's not too difficult. Gorgeous day - warm, no wind. He shoots 74 and I shoot 95 ! I wasn't even that nervous - I just couldn't hit a shot to save my life - I drove home in complete frustration and despair.
We ended up working together for 3 years and I played many rounds with him - some real good rounds too - we laughed about it many times.
Got a bit of winter golf in last January. First round out shot a 96, no surprise and no big deal. Went out a couple weeks later (day before my birthday) and broke 80 for the first time with a solid 39-40...couldn't believe it happened in the 'off season'. The next round a week later was a shabby 93
In a similar vein I have just discovered that if I hit the range the day after a great session, the second session will be utterly ****. I practiced this last Monday and then said "no, no, don't go two days in a row" - went out yesterday and had a great session. Back out tomorrow to keep the confidence alive!

That’s Awesome! Hope the Champagne tasted good my friend!
Last summer I played form the tips with some long hitting golf buddies who usually slum it when they play with me on the blues. Shot my best 9 hole score of 34! Hit the back 9 and pooped the bed with a 52...LOL! Golf is stupid!
More recently, my last 10 rounds have range from a low of 78 to a high of 97. Golf. Is. Stupid. I'm guess I'm lucky that I'm a moron so I don't know any better...hahahaha...derrrrr...Hahaha!
