    I'm a 15 hc who enjoys playing hc tournaments. In a particular tournament I was 17 over par after 13 holes, but I'm not the type to give up easily. The last 5 holes I was 2 under and ended up placing 4th in my division. I went from not being able to do anything right to getting into the zone that quickly.

    Last week I precedded to have the following front 9

    Double, Birdie, Bogey, Par, Double, Birdie, Birdie, Triple, Birdie, Bogey.

    By that point my emotions were spent and I went into the bar to contemplate my existance over a drink.

    I have a photo of the handicap card as evidence somewhere but my biggest ever rollercoaster round was:

    12 over on the front 9

    -1 on the back 9

    I didn't even have one particular hole with a high score, I just couldn't stop double bogeying or bogeying almost every hole on the front 9 with exception of a birdie on the first hole.

    I'd been out of golf for about 3 years, returned and played a few practice rounds and got in a lot of practice with a coach, on this particular day I was pull hooking EVERYTHING out of nowhere. I got inside my head and just destroyed myself and kept playing the same shot over and over. I think I had given up by the 9th couldn't care less and everything just fell back into place as I wasn't in my own head.

    Bizarre round.

    The worst for me was 88-64. Yes, a 24-stroke turnaround in a tournament nonetheless.

    I also once shot 44-32 and missed the cut by 1-stroke (or at least the playoff for the cut).

    I will never cop to being a 'consistent golfer', but I'm more consistent now. The 88-64 I was dreadful on the range and for 17 holes for the 88. Then on the 18th hole I figured out what I was doing wrong and instantly had confidence

    The same thing happened with the 44-32 round as well...but I remember being way more nervous and that killing me on the front 9. In fact, we started on the 10th hole and it's about 300 yards to carry the bunker. I had never come close to carrying the bunker and I had so much adrenaline going that I felt like I swung so easy and the ball carried the bunker with ease. It was a great tee shot, but I couldn't believe how far it went. After that, I had such an overflow of adrenaline that it worked against me on the front nine. I didn't calm down until my 11th hole and that's when I went on a streak.

  • Me and one of my friends once we're playing and I went 40 on the front and he went 30 and I went 30 on the back and he went 40. Pretty crazy round overall both tied with 2 under 70.
