Golf often throws the bad stuff at you.

 

Take it while the goings good….

 64, I’m a 6 handicap....even though I plan to play for another 40 years.  That's even more bold than the score😝

 

Congratulations on the score.  I'm still waiting for lightning to strike on one of my rounds.  A number of years ago, I guy I knew shot a 63 which was 10-12 shots below his normal score.  It can happen.

I think 64 was his score, not his age.

That is awesome! Maybe a lesson on when things go right when going for drivable par 4s or going for par 5 in two. Awesome round! Congrats

Congratulations on a fantastic score! 

 

Know the feeling - there's a weird thing about golf. You can practice like crazy, and get a good average game. But then every now and then, the stars seem to align. We've all probably had rounds like that. Like you're thumping on all cylinders. Everything works. Long off the tee, perfect iron distances, crisp wedges, 10 foot double-break putts drop center cup. Hell, even when you mishit you get a favorable bounce off a tree back into the fairway. Its like the golf gods decided, out of the blue, to shine on you for that round. It even happens to the pros (though when it happens to them they break 60 from the tips).

 

Never have been able to figure out why the occasional day like that happens. Or (more importantly) how to replicate it (and, coincidentally, I am 64 right now, so I've had a while to try to figure it out). 

 

Anyway, frame that scorecard and hang it on your wall ... 🏌️‍♂️

Congrats. Attack the par 5s and driveable par 4s and just don’t make too many mistakes on the rest of the course. Amazing what can happen when it comes together. 

It taught me to go low I need to take risks, mistakes are going to happen so I need to be aggressive on the easier holes to get birdies to cancel bogeys out. 

 

The best players at my club +3 +2 handicap can hit 16 greens and go bogey free but that’s not me, I’m delighted with 10 greens in regulation.

 

I’m usually guilty of trying to avoid double bogeys, protecting a good score before I have one.

Nice!  And I love that "Round Should Take No More than 3 1/2 Hours" edict on the scorecard.

Congrats!!!  My lowest round was a 69 at La Quinta/Mountain course when I was a lad(18).  At the time I was a 2 cap.  Going under par can certainly happen for low single caps.  Very rare but doable.

As the title says, I was having the round of my life -3 on the 17th tee, I then performed a miracle and holed out for eagle from a bad position after a bad tee shot, 155 yards out in the rough partially blocked out by trees. 
 

Probably played about 1000 rounds in my life, my only other round under par was -2 67 on the same course, that was in a competition. I doubt I’ll go this low again even though I plan to play for another 40 years.

 

The course was playing as easy as I gets, no wind, receptive greens, still in good condition before winter comes. 
 

I’ve been playing a lot and putting a lot of cards in, yesterday was a 4 ball and we weren’t submitting cards therefore I was really relaxed and very aggressive, I tried to drive the drivable 2nd and 12th and the par 5 13th in 2. This resulted in me hitting 14/18 greens which is roughly twice as much as I usually hit, iron ball striking is my weakness. 
 

Done this whilst playing foursome match play, I had 3 par putts within 2 feet which were conceded. 
 

Course is a par 69 5753 yards from yellow tees, 127 slope, 68.1 rating. My handicap is currently 5.6 with my 8 best scores all between +4 and +7.

 

This is my version of the rounds I read about with 2 holes in ones in one round or guys who shoot 58/57.
 

Insane round my playing partners were in disbelief, I filled out a card after the round as a momento…

Ok fine….I’ll be that guy…..as the handicap chair of our MGA I feel obligated to ask why some think they don’t post a 4 ball score.  If you pick up because your partner is in you post most likely score.  There is nothing unpostable about a 4 ball or match play event.

 

That said…very nice round!
