What is your biggest difference in 9 hole score during a 18 hole round? Tale of two nines



  • jvincentjvincent Members Posts: 494 ✭✭
    My worst was a front nine that was +10 followed by a -1 back nine during a league night where we count the first nine holes.

    Mr. Consistency that night.

    34 followed by a 54...tale of two golfers.
  • I shot 30 on the front 9 in our district championship and didnt think I could miss all day. Then I woke up on back nine and shot 37. I know it isn’t that big of a difference but the feeling between the two nines will never leave me! Birdie on 6-9 holes to holding on fighting for pars.

    34-52. I’ve had 36-44 more times than I can count. Luckily that has become rare this summer. But last year. Yes. A lot.

    I had 51-39 recently. I really couldn’t keep my eyes open on the front 9...

    I had a `38-29 a couple weeks ago in a pro-am. But probably 8 or so years ago I shot 31-41 I think during a tournament.

    My best Ray-Ray this year was 36-47. That includes five pars on the back.

    How are you guys posting lower scores on the front? It seems to take me 9 holes to warm up and I’ll frequently shoot even par on the back but blow up on the front. Maybe I play too early lol.
  • Edaw68Edaw68 Members Posts: 1,471 ✭✭
    Just went 50(something) on the front and 37 on the back at Pacific Dunes. On 6, 7, and 8 I had others due to getting into those hellacious sand traps.

    25 years ago used a play a 36 hole Sunday deal...crack of dawn tee off and one of my buddies had been out all night drinking...literally. Rolls up to my house at 5am still drunk...proceeds to shoot 55 on front 9. I tell the other two guys hey lets get a game going..."I'll take Todd"...bought him two beers and a shot of jagr at turn. He shot 32 on the back and 73 in the next round as I kept the alcohol flowing...we won about 50$.

    Kennedy golf course in Denver. 49 on the front, 33 on the back.

    33-46. At least I broke 80!
  • LCPLCP Members Posts: 1,268 ✭✭
    52-39 for me when I was about a 13 index (39 on the back was pretty glorious and the round didn't even count in my handicap). One guy I've played with said 54-36 once in a tournament; he was pretty pissed off at himself after the front he said; at the time his index was probably 10-12.

    Last week shot 7 over on front nine and shot -3 on back nine. Buddy kept talking smack on front nine. We were playing for $ and I said let's double the bet for back nine to which he obliged. Really tried on the back nine and lit it up. I told friend not to poke the lion. image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' /> He was miffed.

    August/September 2009 time frame ...

    Playing at Harbor Town ....

    Probably playing off a 5 or 6 handicap at the time ....

    50 on the front 9

    39 on the back 9


    I was severely hung over on the front 9. Wedding weekend, I was in bridal party. Back 9 was capped off with a man's par on 18!! A four wood off the tee, from the tips, into the fairway. A planned 4 iron into the front bunker (I knew I couldn't hold the green from 210ish and the green is the size of a dime). A blast out of the bunker to about 6 feet and proceeded to make the putt!

    I've found the windmill and the steamship obstacles on the back nine ruin my score...so the front is better.
  • tocinotocino Members Posts: 2,252 ✭✭
    I had a 45/60 once when I was struggling to break 100. It was pretty early on in my golfing career and i has grand thoughts of reaching 90 at the turn... just goes to show you, don’t add everything up until the end... smh

    37 on the front 9 holes and 50 on the back 9 holes . This can happen regularly as I run out of steam since an illness . Stopped me from playing golf .

    Happened this past Sunday:

    -1 on the front

    +9 on the back

    So goes the driver, so goes the score. I should have bagged it for the 3 wood, but I’m focused on improving my driver play so I begrudgingly kept it in play.

    IMO there's nothing worse than getting a birdie on #1....kiss of death.

    I don't think I have ever birdied the first hole. Normally a bogey.

    45/36 at the local muni many years ago. I think I hit every green on the back, but didn't make 1 birdie, all 2 putts. Back was kind of boring.
  • kp6622kp6622 Members Posts: 31
    It's been a while since I had a full 10 shot swing, but a few years ago I had one summer where more often than I would care to admit I would go 46-36 or 36-46.
