    My last three rounds, 73, 79, 93. Last nights 9 hole mens..... 52. As a 19 cap, that's what I have to expect. That's the reality. Last two times out...couldn't buy a putt.
    Have to always remember the good times...the good company, the hawk that was sitting 20 feet from me on my approach on 9...being still able to walk the course at 66.

    A 73 and a 79 and you’re still a 19 index?! What are next best 8 scores of your last 20?! :o

    On the thread topic: Like others, I find the If-Only thinking keeps me coming back to the game. It’s also comforting after a bad round: sure I shot 15 shots worse than expected, but “If Only I played those 7 holes over again anywhere near as well as I can, I’d have shot a decent score!”

    I hate the if only(s).
    I play at a course similar and I always say if only I eagle that par 4. And birdie the par 5 I would be in good shape.

    Well, I did that Last week, and I collapsed on the par 3 and a couple of par 4s ended up with the same score.... Of 82 erggggggggg

    85, 81, 85, 80, 82, 47 times 2. The 47's are a par 72. Those 80's are on a par 68.
    I only use a phone app for the hcp for my own interest, but compared to others I play with its probably right on.
    I still enjoyed that 73

    Yep, the “if only” exercise gets me every time.

    I shot 81 the other day with 2 triples and 2 doubles. One of the triples was on an easy par 5. I lost 2 balls on that hole each with what I thought were good shots.

    The other triple is the one that really burned me up. I bombed a 3 wood to the dead middle of the fairway. 9 iron left into green. Pull draw it right but hole high and greenside in 2. Then I proceed to be the biggest moron ever and make a really stupid decision and end up with a triple.

    That still had me seething when I putted out for an 81 on 18.

    Hmmm. I guess that course’s rating is in the low 60’s?!

    There’s a guy in my club that is the “shoulda been” guy.

    “Hey Joe, what did you get on #8?”
    “A 6 but it shoulda been a 4!”

    Well next time fill out your card with what it “shoulda been” and I’ll keep the real score.
