No skins today, just straight golf and no gimmies or anything even remotely sketchy.  I was really happy and I bought those guys lunch after the round.  LOL I am still having a hard time believing that this has actually happened.  Next up is shooting my age!

I hope you are right!  Somewhere inside I believe that I can play like that every day but I kind of doubt it though...  I have done things like this in the past that were complete one offs.  LOL I will find out a bit more in a few hours.

It's not luck.  You instituted change and it worked.   Outstanding play. 

 

Greg and Jeff, not so much.  

Thanks!  Lots of luck in involved, freshly cut holes with really easy pins for one thing.  Every putt rolled true which does not normally happen.  I average 31 putts per round and had 25 yesterday so normally I would have shot around 76 which would have been a really good round for me also.  I also average 6.8 big errors per round (penalty strokes, 3 putts and two chips) and I had one yesterday which is a big difference.  That stat is one that I am hoping to improve with better ball striking...

It’s a mindset. Now that you’ve done it you should be able to focus on each shot individually and not dwell on where you are in relation to par during the round and just play.

Congrats, now you can quit! 🙂

 

In all seriousness, you played great and it's awesome to finally check that box, isn't it? I'm actually right there with you. In addition to several rounds at level-par (72) this year, I shot a 2-under (70) and a 3-under (69) this year which marked the first times I'd been under par on 18. The 69 contained 6-birdies if you can believe it. 

 

 

Here are a few things I've noticed which have helped me repeat the accomplishment:

 

(1) Don't think about score. Have someone else keep score if possible. Thinking about where I stand is always my kryptonite. It's the last thing I want to think about if I'm just trying to play the best 18 holes I can. Tournaments are one thing, but if you're looking to set a personal record, you need to keep your mind clear. 

 

(2) Going low is about making easy pars. Focus on making your driver a strength. If you can remove the big misses from your driving, and possibly become a player who's a little on the long side, golf is 10x easier and much more fun. The more often you drive it well, the more often you'll at least have a chance to shoot a great number. 

 

(3) Going low is also about making birdies. That means (A) good driving and (B) taking advantages of the Par-5s. The latter has pushed me to be more aggressive in going for Par-5s this year. While it's taken some work on my fairway metal play (and it did lead to some initial bogeys), I eventually started becoming really comfortable hitting my fairway metals and longer irons at the green to the point where getting on (or around the green) in 2 shots is now a much more common occurrence.  

 

(4) Stay committed to normal shots and don't get cute. If you're playing well, stay committed to hitting regular tee shots and approaches and keep hitting those shots until you're done. Don't try to "manufacture" a par on the last hole by doing it some way you'd never do during a regular round. That's the fastest way to make a bogey or a double. 

 

(5) Play as if you're going to have another shot to shoot level-par the next day. Be a little fatalistic. If destiny has you making bogey on 18, so be it. If you make bogey on the last and shoot (+1), who really cares? That's a good score, too. Try to remind yourself you're capable of getting up and down. Trust that you have some ability to scramble if a tee shot or approach isn't perfect. Playing your best isn't about playing perfectly. Just be smart about where you aim.

Congrats!! I broke par for 18 once as a 12HC. I was 5 over on the 7th tee and the ranger pissed me off. Said we were slow and we weren't. Holed a bunker shot to a cup I couldn't see and drained a 40' eagle putt for a 39-31 two under. Missed a straight 10' putt for 69 cause I looked up. 

 

Savor the feeling.
