Your Best Round Ever....What Stands Out?

My prox on approach is a weakness, especially inside 125. I read Rich Hunt's Pro Golf Synopsis a few years ago and remember him stating putts outside of 15 feet are largely more about luck than skill. Well that day I caught a lot of luck. Sure enough my next round was same caliber play but some 8-10 shots worse due to putts.. a perfect case study. I knew I needed to give myself better looks with wedges to get over the current plateau I was on. So I went about fixing it and first thought it was wrong club selection/ shot type into greens. Developed a Pelz 8 type shot the help gapping. It helped, but I still wasn't reaching goals. My Pelz 8's were consistent but my standards were more likely to be deep or short a few yards. This made me realize the real problem. It seems obvious now, but when your hitting them on line and making good contact, it's a little harder to accept. High SS/ fast hand players rarely make for the best wedge players due to the very speed that helps them w. distance. So I started working on shallowing my AoA/ divot size to control spin better. Sure enough I heard Mcilroy on NLU podcast last week talking about this very topic and how a guy like DJ improved his wedges. He mentioned that DJ's divots were much smaller now. That pretty much sold me on it.

Just had my best round ever last week. I can't say there was no fear once I realized where I was at score wise but I made myself attack on the last two holes which resulted in an eagle and a birdie. Those 2 holes I've tried to "survive" on before and always blown my round.
Three other things that stand out:
I played with confidence, just having fun for the first 16 holes.
I hit most my tee shots very well and a few that were still fine.
On the front side I rolled 3 birdie putts right up the the middle of the hole and an inch short. So I had chances to go even lower.

I would just say there is a free-ness when I golf well. I'm not concerned with anything except the current swing/stroke. I'm not picking targets or looking at trouble, I could care less where the ball went. Just grip and rip.

With the 62, I made a few longer putts (15, 20 & 35 ft) but 6/9 birdies were from inside 8ft. However, I missed a pretty easy 8 footer on 1 and a 6 footer on 5... could have turned in 28 instead of 30.
In the 68 round, I putted really well all day but didn't really make anything. Sounds weird, but there were a lot of stress-free pars. I probably had less than 30 ft of holed putts on the day. The 3 birdies were from 7ft, 2ft and a couple inches. I had one good 6 ft par save in there, the rest were basically tap ins. I hit 17/18 greens and the 1 missed GIR I putted from the fringe. So I had 18 birdie putts on the day and only made 3 of them.

1. Hit 80% of fairways.
2. Hit the best shot of my golf life on 17. 230 out pulled Heavenwood, had to hit a fade on command and pulled it off perfectly. Came to rest about 15 feet from the cup. Missed the eagle putt, but it was a tap in birdie.
3. Came to 18 knowing I would have my PB in the bag unless I completely blew up. Smashed the drive, had GW in and pured it. 10 feet below the hole and buried the birdie to end my round, with my PB of 74.
The two I don't want to remember about that round:
1. The double on 14... 200 yard par 3, all carry. Grabbed hybrid to be safe. Missed the green a touch right and it hits the sprinkler head and off into the woods it went. Ended up doubling that hole.
2. I left 3 birdie putts on the lip. Literally, a stiff breeze knocks all three in. Could have been under par on the round. Although, I cannot complain but so much.
