My best round ever was an 84 and during that round I was striking the ball well and chipping to within 3 to 4 feet on every hole. I missed 3 short putts and then realized I was putting with my golf glove on.  I was so zoned in that I forgot to take my glove off on 3 chips and 3 putts. Cost me a 79 IMO.

I was playing a pretty hilly course in CA, and hit my 3 rescue 230 yards out of the sand uphill about 2ft from the pin. Quite poasibly one of my favorite shots ever.

My career best round was also the same round that I made my only ace. On the fly. Dunk you very much.

Club Championship: Tied with another guy going into the last day. Never missed a fairway or green. Got to the 18th tee at 7 under. Great drive down the middle, wedge to about 4 feet and drained the putt. 8 under and won by 10. It was absolutely the easiest round of golf I've ever played. I never put my self in trouble and never had any stress all day.

Kept it in the fairway. No fat or thin irons. No duffed pitches or chips. No 3 putts.
So, nothing spectacular, but no big time messups.

My personal best round came in 2011 and is the only even par round I've ever shot.  I was coming off of being out of work for a week with back spasms.  With back spasms for me golf and work go hand in hand.  If I can't work because of spasms I also can't golf.  Conversely if I'm recovering from spasms but can golf then I can work.  So what better way to determine if I'm fit for work than to find out if I can play?  My back was still a little tender but I found about a 75% swing that I could live with.  Parred the first 10 holes then made 2 bogies and 2 birdies coming in, including one on 18.  Knowing my back was still a little fragile slowed me down and got me to focus more on tempo.  Something I always try and remember.

Both my 74s were days with near perfect ballstriking and only average putting. Same first time I broke 80 with a 76 with a hole in one. Iím a good putter, but that typically makes a 70 something out of an 80 something, it just hasnít been the difference between good and great rounds.

I feel like it always comes down to putting.  Every time I have a good round it just feels like putts are dropping from everywhere.

the best round I ever had was boring ...and I felt like I missed a load of birdie putts

So it did not feel like my best round ever but I was never in trouble and always giving myself a chance for bird or better

Best round was in the high 60's.  What I recall about it was how clear and easy my thinking was and how calm I felt.  I have felt that way since during rounds but mostly over 9 of 18 holes.

Also factor in the difficulty of the course.  My best round was on a slightly above average difficulty 127 slope.  Encinitas Ranch by San Diego.  75 and could easily have been a 71 which would have been -1!  Had an uphill par 5 where I nailed the 4 wood approach right on the flag and barely, barely clipped the bunker or it would have been to inside 10 feet for eagle.  Also remember I chipped in for birdie.  Lovely day.

The only thing I remember about my best round ever was that my lob wedge was on fire! I didn’t care if I missed the green because I was pin seeking with that wedge!

I've shot a low of 76 recently and back to back 78s. Whole new game when I hit fairways and GIR. What stands out is if I could actually make a 10 footer on an occasion, I'd go low for me pretty regular. Just read that last sentence  again...guess I should focus more on putting.

Shot 70 on a par 72 golf course with making double on the last. My brother and I got paired with a couple lawyers and one of them said to me while I was walking to the tee box "aren't you 4 under, I've never seen someone shoot in the 60's?"

Hit a solid drive on 18 into the hear of the fairway - pulled 5 iron from 200 or so out an leaked it into the pond. I've never shot in the 60's always mess it up on 17, I think in 2015 I came to 18 3-4 times with a chance an blow it every time.

Anyways - I just hit the ball really solid, made 0 bombs for birdie or par all day - 3 of the birdies i made were almost tap in's - I had to grind out that double bogey on the last bc i chunked it into the bunker i was so nervous thinking about making par.

Few years ago when I was playing every week I always played extremely boring golf - Make 1-2 birdies a round shoot low 70's - Once a month I'd get hot an start making some putts but not often.

What stood out for me was I didn't try and smash the crap out of every shot, swung slow and smooth kept it in the fairway hit some of my best shots, pity I didn't learn my lesson that day haven't played as good since.

The course I worked at was private for 75+ years and went public to avoid closing for good. The members bolted for one of the other 2 clubs in town. For a bit of nostalgia, they put together a game with former members and pros. Myself, the asst pro, and head pro were invited to join. It was my first big money game. I played HS golf against the assistant and our head pro was the pro at my course growing up. We had a lot of history, so for sentimental reasons, that meant a lot.

We basically took the 19th hole out with us. Reading putts was pointless by 12. After it was all said and done, I finished with an eagle and 6 birdies and shot an even par 71. Not my lowest 18 hole total, but certainly the most holes under par in a round for me. It included a pitch in birdie on our signature hole from a spot where I couldn't see the surface of the green.

My now wife was treated to a nice dinner that night

Just shot my first sub par round.

Things that stood out:

Holing a 65 yard wedge for Eagle and getting to -3 in a round of golf for the first time ever.

Pushing a 4 iron on the next hole and watching it thread it’s way through some tree branches that over hangs a b!tch of a hole.

Pulling a freaking GW from 125yrds into a water hazard to go from -3 to -1 with 5 holes to go.

I hit every single driver right down the middle and long.  

I missed a lot of 10 -15 ft putts, but every par but two were tap ins.

I have always felt I was good enough to break par on the course I play, but since I had yet to break 80 this year, I was wondering if I ever would.

Best round of 73 which started with an 8 on the second hole.. Thought the round was down hill but at the end it was a 73.. Moral of the story.. Don't give up your round just because of a bad hole.

68.

I made pars on my first 4 with a great "tree" save on an easy and short par 4 (fanned a 2 iron of the tee, playing it safe)  

I made two birdies on 7 and 9.  

Made a bogey on 10 and 11.  Birdied 13, a tough par three.  Went 2 iron, 2 iron at a par 5.  Put it in a bunker.  Up and down for bird on 17.  

I got good breaks (the tee shot on the par 5 2 iron hit a cart path that bi seated the fairway). And a couple of bad ones.  I never got rattled and kept finding greens st all costs.  I knew that if I rely on my strengths (scrambling and putting) I could hold together a good start.  I got a couple of decent putts to drop and en fuego.

One other thing came to me about my best round ever... it was pretty cold, I was a little stiff from it, so I didn’t try to crush the ball but instead concentrated on making solid contact and didn’t try and push my body to do something that it couldn’t that day

The best round at a golf tournament was at the final round of Rutgers Invitational my freshman year.

Our team was only a couple shots from winning the biggest tournament in the school's history so the pressure was high for the last round for all of us.

I was extremely nervous since this was one of my first college tournaments and I felt that I had to already perform at a really high level.

Luckily I played an amazing round and finished off with a birdie on the last hole for a solid score of 66

80 Torrey South from the tips.  Aside from the quad on 7 which I'll never f'n forget, it was how I got up and down.  Chipped it in tight almost every time and even when I didn't I still rolled in a few longer putts.  And closed 18 with a birdie.

Was a fun day!

Started a new job, boss saw me wearing a golf hat one day, asked if I played, told him I did, he said no one in the office played and asked me to, I played in college and was around scratch at the time, shot 65 that day, didnt miss a shot, the looks on his face I still remember to this day, what stood out were the 2 sand saves, it's always the tough pars that keep a great round together

There are a couple of rounds I remember as being my best.  The first was on a course I played one time.  It was a very difficult course...I think the slope was 144 from the tips.  I was playing around a 5 handicap at the time and decided I was going to try it from the tips to get the full feel of how difficult it was.  I ended up shooting a 4 over and carded a quadruple bogey on one par 3.  I remember making birdie on the first two holes and sprinkled in an eagle later on a par 5.  I have shot several rounds of 1 over par on much easier tracks but with the slope figured in this was probably my best.

The other round I remember was a local club tourney.  I had a regular course I golfed in Atlanta which was a very short public course.  The winner of the last few club championships was somewhere around par give or take a shot.  I was again playing around a 5 handicap and decided to enter.  I showed up for my first tourney I ever played in and I played it 2 years in a row and those were also my last two competition attempts.  The first year I didn't do very well but the thing I remember about that one was somehow I managed to get picked as the first golfer off the tee for the tourney.  There must have been 30-50 golfers gathered round to watch the first group tee off.  Again this was my first shot at a real competition and my nerves were kicking in.  I was literally shaking in my boots for the first shot with everyone watching.  I don't know how but I made a bad swing but ended up finding the fairway somehow.  WHEW!

The next year I was a little more composed and wasn't first off the tee.  My first tee ball found the fairway again.  But when I went up to the ball it was lodged in the middle of a dried up mud crack...literally half way in and half way out.  I found out in this tourney just how much I knew about the rules.  I wasn't sure if I had any recourse as to if I could pull it out or if I had to hit it that way.  My playing partner also had no idea...so I hit it.  I took as hard of a swing I ever hit with a lob wedge to try to get it out of the mud crack.  I advanced it about 50 yards on the ground.  My next shot was into a bunker (it was a par 5) and I ended up with a sand save par.  Relief!  I birdied the next hole and I was feeling much more comfortable now.  I was even par after 5 holes and chipped in on the short par four 6th hole for eagle.  I was at 2 under at this point and ended that first 9 with a birdie on 9 to go 3 under.  I was leading the tourney.  I was at 2 under up to hole 17.  A short par 4 but the second shot is over water.  I blocked one right and into the hazard.  I started walking up because where I hit it was dried up and I thought maybe I could find it.  Well I couldn't and I had to go back and really had no idea exactly where I hit the last shot from and where I should drop.  The other players helped me out and I found a drop spot and hit again over the water onto the green about 15 feet from the pin.  I missed the bogie put by about an inch and was back to even par.  I finished 18 with a bogie to end at +1 but was in the final 2 groups for day two.  I have hit +1 several times but in competition I thought it was one of my best round and could have been better.  I have still never golfed a round at par or better.

Day two didn't go my way.  I was missing putts (even a couple of short ones).  I was out of the tourney when I got to hole 15 but I remember it well.  It was a short par 5 and I was on the greenside rough in 2.  I chipped up to about 2 inches to the hole and went up and tapped my ball in while my playing partners left out an audible gasp.  I looked around and wondered what happened.  One of the kind young men proceeded to tell me I had chipped in with the flag in the hole.  I wasn't even sure what the penalty was...2 strokes added to my score.  Again, I was out of the tourney already at this point but it really let me know I needed to get a better handle on the rules because I wasn't always sure of exactly what to do.  I know I am supposed to pull flags when I tap in but I just forgot because normally I don't care in a casual round.  Just playing casual golf I wasn't all that precise about how I took my drops and penalties.  I knew the general rules but probably never concentrated on getting my drops etc precisely right.  My handicap was probably a little inflated from not following precise procedures.  I mean I knew hitting OB was going to be re-teed stroke plus distance etc.  I knew if I went into a hazard I would have to add a stroke and drop etc.  But competition golf taught me I needed to know the exact procedures on what to do and when.  I am still just a casual golfer but I carry a rule book now in case I get in a tourney or something.

I look back at it as a really fun learning experience.  It was embarassing but I had fun with it.  It's etched in my memory like it was yesterday.

Im still learning so my best round is only a 94 on a par 72 course. Nothing to write home about but I did net 3 pars and only one triple bogey blow up hole. So I guess thats what stands out to me. I also got bogey on a few holes that have been total disasters for me in the past.

The best round at a golf tournament was at the final round of Rutgers Invitational my freshman year.

Our team was only a couple shots from winning the biggest tournament in the school's history so the pressure was high for the last round for all of us.

I was extremely nervous since this was one of my first college tournaments and I felt that I had to already perform at a really high level.

Luckily I played an amazing round and finished off with a birdie on the last hole for a solid score of 66

Played at Rutgers and now you live in Sweden? Interesting. I work at RU and play that course quite frequently!
