Did it again. 11 over on the first 9; -1 on the second 9.

I've taken some time off this past month and have only hit two buckets since before Christmas so that's my excuse. In league I started on #16 and for the next 9 holes I was +11. Multiple penalties and 3 putts made for a miserable start. Then I remembered how to play this stupid game and played the next 9 holes in -1. Still shot +10 for the round but at least I don't hate myself.

    It’s better than 1 under on the front and 11 over on the back. Maybe?��

    Happens 2-3 times a year to me, usually it’s poor front and killer back for me though.

    Want a better one? 53 - 33. And I hit the ball better on the 53 than the 33. Had some amazingly wacky things happen on the front 9.
  • toctoc Members Posts: 2,838 ✭✭
    I mean that’s not bad, if I was 11 over after 9 I’d try and let’s make it 12 or 13 over on the back. Anything worth doing is worth doing right.

    Press, press, press!!



    Then if you’re like me you follow up the +11 front side with a. +12 back nine. Might as well lose everything.

    I feel like the later happens when you simply stop caring about overall scores and have a mind set of one shot at a time. Kinda how some golfers refuse to look at the leader board, it just causes you to mentally grind. I guess it depends on you as a person.



    Nice job on the -1 back 9!

    Was on pace to shoot 89 from the white tees at Whistling straits. Took a 13 on a hole hitting 3 from a free side bunker.

  • slocagolferslocagolfer Members Posts: 489 ✭✭
    I was once 13 over after 5 holes. Gritted my teeth and I finished the round at 14 over.
  • doglegsdoglegs Members Posts: 31 ✭✭
    Played Carnoustie for the first time last year. +11 front and -1 back. Some major bunker trouble did in my front but I credit my caddy for guiding me home. What it could have been...

    What do they say, your cap always pans out in the end



    Mess up early, settle down later or go low early (get lil spooked or excited) and screw it up on back.....



    They say we will always play to where we think we should be...not comfy at -3 well than dbls and bogeys are sure to follow, lol



    It really is in the mind more than anything....



    Think my worst lopsided rd this last stretch is 45/32.....stupid game

    Many rounds last season where I went 46&36 lol

    it is true that some guys relax after the round is blown. See it in club c's all the time .. the guy that goes 46-36 and laments what could have been. Hey chooch, you shot 36 because the pressure was off and you were out of the mix



    Also, you hadn't played in a while so a back 9 surge makes sense

    When I shot a 39 / 53 at our club last summer, our starter said, “You shot a Ray Ray. Like Raymond Floyd on the front and like Ray Charles on the back!” I hadn’t heard that one before. &#55357;&#56846;
  • The Real PacmanThe Real Pacman Members Posts: 78 ✭✭

    I guess this isn't such a bad thing, but I tend to be pretty dang consistent with my scoring. Not saying I'm great or anything, just steadily shooting in the mid 80's. It can be frustrating though when I'm constantly shooting within 2 or 3 strokes of my average score time after time after time.

  • deep18deep18 Members Posts: 1,899 ✭✭

    Buddy of mine who at the time was an 8 or 9 handicap shot 47 on the front and 32 on the back. Literally forgot how to play for 9 holes and then striped it for the other 9. Golf is just terrible.
