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

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.

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

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.
