My total feet of putts made was probably triple my normal.

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.

Tons of birdies and an eagle (think it was 7 birdies and eagle).  Was hitting it a little closer than normal, making every putt inside 20 feet. I def made more bogies than pars on the other ten holes (think it was 7 bogeys and 3 pars). So shot 2 under with 3 pars total on a par 70.

First and only time breaking 70.  Was 3 under going into 17 and joined a twosome.  I told them I was really nervous because I needed to par the last two holes (short par 4 and short par 5) to break 70 for the first time.  They kinda rollled their eyes like I was bsing them.  I went on to birdie the last two holes for a 67.

Clear mind- Knew I was going to hit the shot and make the putt- It was as if I was on cruse control- I could see the line and knew it was going in- The Zone

This happen a lot when I was playing a lot.

My best round was the only time I broke below 80 and the thing that struck me was my GIRs for the day. It put things in perspective for why I'm currently where I am at in the game...big difference between up and down for par and putting for birdie, even if it's a long putt.

I shot 29 last night in league. All i was thinking was how i would attack every shot. I never once played defensive or thought about a miss. I ATTACKED.

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 was hitting fairways with my driver and irons to the middle of the green.  The holes just happened to be cut in the middle of the greens.  Went 1 under on the back and didn't make a putt over 3 feet.  Good ball striking day plus luck.  What stands out the most for me, and what I'm most proud of, is the routine par I made on 18 as nervous as I was to finish the back 9 under par.

Even though I broke 80 twice this summer, I consider the 81 I shot from the tips on the first time on a golf course I never played before, my best round of the year.

What stands out was my short game. I got up and down 60% of the time for the 18, and 80% of the time on the first 9, with only 2 greens in reg on the first 9.

On the first 9 I shot 39, with a bogey and a double, only because I didn't get up and down those times and on the par 3 8th, 230 yards, some guys were in front of me screwing around on the green, so after they left, being mildly frustrated, I pulled a 3 wood into the tree and didn't get up and down. Made double.

The singular bogey came on the hardest hole on the course, the 410 yard par 4 4th. I pushed a drive out to the right, and since the hole doglegs left, I left myself with 200 yards. Missed the green short, chipped up and two putted.

But otherwise, my short game was money. I only hit three greens on the day, though on the back 9 I only got up and down twice, but that first 9 was something else.

I had a great round as a junior golfer. went 7 under, 7 birds no bogies. birdied 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18. I just remember not remembering anything. The adrenaline was unbelievable. I didn't look at my scorecard, that way I didn't have to know I was 6 under going into 18.

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.

Just shot par yesterday for the first time at my home course.  Saved par 60% of the time and had great distance control with my wedges resulting in a lot of birdie chances.  Only made 3 birdies but short game was good enough to shoot par.

Missed opportunities. My 2 best rounds were a 62 on a shortened course (all the blue & black tee boxes closed) and a 68 on the same course but full length.

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.

Knocking in a 5 footer for birdie on the last to shoot even par. The tacos I ate after that round never tasted so good.

A couple things:

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.

My best round, though not lowest score, was a 70 (-2) from the tips (6,900 yards) a few years ago in the club championship.  I remember 2 things about that round that stood out.  First, I felt like I was barely swinging my driver, yet I was hitting very nice, high & long baby draws down it seemed like every fairway.  Second, I was seeing the lines on the greens like never before, I was in the zone and did not come close to 3 putting.

Also caught a major break... #8 is a short dog-leg right around water par 4 and was maybe reachable that day down wind.  I went for it as I was hitting the driver so well, but pushed the tee shot a bit right and left myself with a 30 yard, straight uphill shot to a tucked pin with no green to work with.  I decided to open up my 60 degree and take a full swing to see if I could get lucky.  Bladed the shot, should have gone 50+ yards over the green, but hit it so bad that the ball smashed & mostly died into the hill/rough short of the green then trickled on to about 20 feet leaving me a decent birdie chance.  Lipped out the birdie chance, but was very happy making par on what should have been a double or worse.

Best round ever was a 76, about 5 shots better than my usual.  I remember I just felt in the zone.  No real spectacular shots or saves, just everything clicking at a nice pace.

There's a lot of "nothing sticks out" stories in this thread and, while the majority of the round I stayed out of trouble, I have two shots from my best round cemented in memory.

I'm a lefty BTW so that might help the two upcoming shot stories a touch...

Dogleg left par 4, I missed the fairway right and ended up with a bush in front of me and a tree 40 feet down the fairway to my right. i wanted to hit it low (under the bushes branches) and draw it around the tree. Left myself less than 15 feet from the pin and 2 putted for par.

Long-ish straight par 4, I went a touch right into the light rough and, again, had a tree in front of me that was almost blocking my shot out. Pin was front left. The yardage was spot-on for a gap wedge + 5 yards. I went for the hero shot and blasted a gap wedge straight up to the moon, praying for a low-spin flyer that wouldn't rip back off the green. It fell like a stone and stuck where it landed about 15 feet from the pin, and was another easy 2 putt par.

71 -1 Turtle Creek in Jupiter FLA. Down for the week on vacation... short sided myself on par 3 17. Impossible flop/up and down and I had never been under par before (so of course thinking about it). Somehow pull the Phil shot off and stick it a foot. Make the par. 18 was breeze. Got my one-under!

Shot a 68 once on a par 71 (I'm a 13 handicapper).  Lots of greens in reg (unusual for me) and about 8 putts of 30 + feet finding the cup.  If I didn't have a few witnesses, I wouldn't have believed it myself.  My driving was extra good that day and I was chipping better than usual.

I just shot a 1 over 37 at my home course (university of Georgia GC)back nine. The front was pretty bad, but that back was just so easy. I  had magic in my wedges and 13 putts. Nothing stands out but I was mainly hitting what I pictured and otherwise chipped it really close and knocked it in.

Had my best round ever this year, 74, and the thing that stands out to me is I don't recall ever thinking about anything before any of the shots. Everything was on autopilot, didn't have a single swing thought, just grabbed the club, picked a target and swung. Was kind of amazing actually.

Tempo, tempo, tempo. Smooth all day.
. 2 birdies, 4 bogeys. Pretty windy day. Posted +2 74.
Played with a very nice couple.  I remember them complementing me when we finished.
I remember 2 shots: 3iron second to reach a par five in 2, and 100yrd wedge to about a foot.
I thin the longest putt I made was 10 ft, maybe less.
Wish I could have that swing everyday.

I didnít read any of the previous posts. For me what stands out for my best round(s) is a calmness. A sense of peace I guess. I donít remember all the shots of my best rounds but I always remember a poor shot that I recovered from. It always seems that I reacted calmly and the stepped up to pull the next recovery shot off or got up and down or whatever.

So Iíd say calm is what stands out to me.
