The first 4 holes were a disaster - +4 with a 3-putt and no FIR’s.
I gave myself a talking to - I just had to drive the ball better.
Hit 9/10 fairways the rest of the day, and just had that feeling over the ball, where you know you’re going to hit it well.
Drive on 18 perfectly summed up the experience: 345 yd par 4, big dogleg left. You can carry the brush to a landing area about 295 out, leaving yourself with a straightforward pitch.
Most take an iron/hybrid and lay-up to the right, but as I mentioned, I was feeling it, and wanted to finish strong.
Gave my driver a few words of encouragement and let rip my best drive of the day.
It carried 6 inches past the brush (ball mark evidence) and capped off my best driving day ever.
Ended up with a +4 76, which wasn’t my best score to par in a round, but it was the most solid overall round I’ve ever played.

I have an index that floats around 10-12, and typically shoot mid 80s scores. Shot a 78 once, that's my best round.
Was out yesterday, striking the ball quite well, dropping putts left and right. Only a couple three putts, a bunch of 1 or 2 putts. ffwd to the back 9, and I'm +6 through 15 holes. Even when I miss shots, I've been able to scramble for par a couple times... I proceed to play the next 3 holes at 5 over par, and throw away a potential new career low round.
Silly game, this is.

Everything went my way. Things like when I left my my ball retriever on three, but I was chased down by a course martial on the fifth who nicely returned it to me and told me "to hurry the F up." (Sweet old guy, always with the funny banter,that was how you knew he really liked you and saw you as one of the guys).
The whole round went like that...I even hit the green on the 8th in only four shots! Anyway,the by the time I dropped a really dicey two footer to make 6 on the 9th I knew I had to go around again. Posted a 55/53, and I've been chasing that feeling ever since. Still have the card on the wall of my cubicle at work. Screwed up my handicap for a while trying to fill those shoes but it was so worth it... Just flat had it that day man.

If I hit lots of greens, I have lots of birdie putts, I am not in any trouble all day and I don't have any big numbers. For me there is a measurable correlation between greens in regulation and lowest career scores...

1. No double bogies. I managed to miss in all the right places, and never lost a ball off the tee. Having no double bogies is my goal every round, this was one of the only times I actually accomplished it.
2. No three putts. This is the only round I've ever played where I averaged under 2 putts/hole. My chipping wasn't insane or anything, I just wasn't three putting anything that day. Every lag putt ended up inside 3 feet, and I even made a very difficult 25-footer for birdie (top 3 best putts I've ever made).
So I'd say that if one part of my game truly stood out that day, it was putting, but that day I really managed to elevate my whole game to a level I haven't seen before or since. I'm a 12 handicap and I'm usually pleased with an 85, considering how little I get to practice. That round did show me what I was capable of though, and I feel like I'm getting close to breaking through again.
