Played a 9 hole course today, shot 53 the first time around and pulled everything left.

Older gentleman I was paired with told me I was swinging too hard and to stop abusing the ball.

Same 9 holes, shot 41 the second time around. He smiled and told me "I don't care if you hit PW or 7 iron, swing easier and hit the damn thing straight."

My best 9 hole score ever!

46 on the front (par 36) and 34 on the back (par also 36) at my home course. Pretty much every round I shoot at least 2-3 strokes better on the back. When the wind is up (it was that day) the front can play 5-6+ strokes harder as it is completely unprotected.

Saturday I was 52 on the front.  Didn't feel like I played any better on the back.    Missed a 10 foot PAR putt on 18 for a 41.  Funny game.

Not front and back 9
But the most dramatic was -8 thru 14th and +8 the rest of the way in for an even par round.  I still haven't recovered from that.

I was reminded of this thread after I saw Ikeda Yuta's score in his first round of the US Open yesterday: 5 over on the front nine, five under on the back for an even par round. Five bogies followed by five birdies.

54 - 40, made the turn grabbed a hot dog and it was like magic. I missed an easy putt for a 39 on 18. For a 16 index I was happy with the 40.

The one that stands out to me is when I won my first tournament as a kid. I was +7 through 7 holes, eagled 8 and turned at 40 (+5) then shot 29 (-6) on the back.

Bunch of years ago, played in a weekend skins game on a course I absolutely hated.  Shot 45 on front 9 (only par was on #9).  Then shot 31 on back 9.  (10 handicap at the time).  Won a bunch of money.  :)

Can't say for sure that it is my best, but a few weeks ago I had a round that was +9 on the front, then +2 on the back, going into 18 even on the back. Hit approach into bunker, overshoot the green into knee high rough (lucky it didn't go into creek), hack out, chip on, and one putt for a double, +2 back nine. Birdied 10, par par par, bogey 14, par par par, double 18.
