I shot 21 higher in a round yesterday than I did a day earlier...  

Not the most frustrating round I've ever had, just very confused as to how it's even possible.  I've been going through some massive swing changes lately and I could not commit to my new swing and my old swing was garbage yesterday.  What's the biggest swing in score you guys have ever shot?

Three weekends ago.  On Saturday shot a 90. Had 50 in the front & 40 in the back.  The next day on Sunday was a 41 on the front & 38 on the back.  The part I love is the same day of having a 10 stroke difference from the front to the back.  A model of consistency!!

87
109
These were both tournament rounds separated by a week. All of a sudden my driver couldn't keep the ball out of the woods. The 87 is about my usual score, or thereabouts.

This year hasn't been bad yet but last year I shot 80 in a tournament then the next day I shot 94 with maybe 2 fairways hit. Just lost focus and confidence that day. So far I only had about a 4 stroke difference on average from day 1 to day 2 in tournaments.

I had a differential of 20 this weekend, and it wasn't for the better. The low round was on a tough track that I'm happy to be in the mid-low 80's at, legitimately. The 2nd was an easy course and I just had NOTHING to say for my swing that day. It was horrendous. I officially have the duck hooks, to no end.

65 (course I was VERY familiar with), and then two days later shot 82 on a course I had never played before.  That was like 10 or 12 years ago.

Back in April, I walked nine holes one night after work, went completely nuts, and shot a personal-best 31 (par 36), with a bogey on #4.  The next morning, I had a smooth 41 on that same nine holes.  Then I woke up and shot 34 on the back.  Roller coaster.

Played at an unremarkable beach course two summers ago, had an awful day of ball striking, and shot 92.  Was so disgusted, went back two days later and shot 76.

Shot 65 (8 under) on 6589 yard home course in 2000. 8 Handicap Course rating 71.0 Slope 122. The next round after that low score I shot 85 (12 over) on the same course.

Thats a 20 shot differential!

Such is life!

Cheers

I went 75-95 in a tournament. Many of the truly good players had horrible first days... Thus, I was in the last group so that was pretty awesome finishing dead last in the Chip Flight.

I've acquired the shanks (the real dead right OB shanks) before and stopped keeping score after 120+ so there's that too.

Golf is a difficult game to stay consistently good at, I think that's why Tiger 'was'  so impressive. After a few holes 8 or higher, it's time to chalk up the round as just practice.

78 (personal best) on Friday at a nice short, easy course and then a 96 on Saturday at an average course. I just couldn't hit a bull in the a** with a shovel or do anything else right for that matter.

One month stretch at the end of last year played 3 rounds went 88-74-89

The 74 was in a driving rainstorm in a tourney that was actually cancelled after 14 holes, but we finished because our group was playing so well. Also it would have been better if not for a quad on a par 4 due to 6 shots from 3 different wet bunkers.

I've had some massive ones including 74 87 this season. Many years ago when I was in HS, we got rained out and had to play 9 hole make up round. I was medallist with 36 , but shot 45 on the front.

And I still play this frustrating game.
