Had my best round a month or so ago (77) just started seriously golfing 2 years ago. I had no idea how low I was going but my playing partner kept saying another ho hum par hey. Biggest thing I remember now is most of my approaches were either on the green or in comfortable chipping distance.

In 95 I won a greater Manchester district championship (on my home course) I was off 3 and had a steady ok first round then ok for the front nine.... Then went bananas! I holed some ridiculous puts to come back in 30 shots and win. I spent the evening in dumb shock, still look at the greens today and wonder how on earth I managed to hole them puts.

Iíve tied my personal best 81 three times.  All three felt effortless, I was in a zone, nothing too spectacular in terms of shotmaking and definitely not thinking about swing mechanics.

Set my new record on Friday using the method recommended on the TG2 podcast on how to learn to score. Set your goal, start at the forward tees, do not move back a tee box till you hit your goal. Then do it again and repeat the process till you are playing the sticks.

My previous best round was a 67 with 2 chip-in birdies at Northshore Golf Club in Orlando back in 2006. My new best round as of Friday is a 66 with 6 birdies, 1 eagle, and 2 bogeys on the card at Mayfair Golf Club in Sanford.

It’s amazing how important driving is to my game now so my new goal is to dial that club in distance wise to a consistent predictable 275 off the tee. I averaged 248 for the day off the tee, but that included a few drives just under 290 and more than a few drives just over 220 so that has to get better. I was just fortunate were the duffs took place and where they landed most of the day (sans the 2 bogeys).

Putted the rock beautifully all day. I think the one thing that stands out now is how I didn’t stress over any putt. Just went through my routine and wondered if it was acceptable to make sure everyone around me understood I birdied (and 1 �).

Would sum best rounds up more on a physical and emotional level than anything specific in terms of stats.  

There sometimes comes this "thing" I can't perfectly describe.  If I had to shave it down to one single word it would be "relaxed".  Have GOT to believe those who've played this game long enough know exactly what I'm suggesting.  I "feel" exceptionally comfortable over the ball.  The handle "feels" like it born in my hands.  My body is simply hugely relaxed.  My emotions are likewise in a state of "calm" that isn't easy to describe.

When this sort of state of being washes over me during golf, there is an absence of little distractions all around me. Virtually nothing said or done by others, no amount of sounds from another fairway or nearby highways... literally nothing seems to remotely be a "thing" in my awareness.  And, on those rarest of occasions when this beautiful yet strange "force" is present - it lasts all the way to the 18th green. It's the opposite of the feeling of riding a little wave for a few holes.  It's there and it stays there.  No anxiety that the wheels will eventually fly off.

It's not any one stat.  The stats are an output.  They're all seemingly the aggregate result of this physical and emotional state of being I wish I could summons up every time out and on every single stroke.  Wish I knew how to better define it and/or how to call upon it.

May the force be with you - lol.  All I got.

Just had another of my lowest rounds of 67(-5; 6800, 73/128) and that was with a bogey on a par 5.  My career lowest round was a 66 10 years ago when I was playing and/or practicing almost every day.  I haven't beaten -2 on 18 holes in years but I've done it 5 of my last 7 rounds since July.

Probably my best round was a 70(-2) at Nemacolin Mystic Rock a month ago.  First time playing it, 7526 from tips rated 77/149.

The thing that stands out is that it was easy.  I wasn't draining 30footers or knocking down pins every hole(except I hit 4-5 close at Mystic)

Very much as Reasonability describes it, an absence of things not related to intention. What stands out is how effective modest skills were during the four times in 25 years that I experienced playing in the zone.

When you start your round you set goals. The app records par or better received as a par achieved, so an eagle or Birdie would count as an equivalent par or better received.

Looking back on all my best rounds, there are two factors that were common to all of my "great" rounds:

1.Not Overswinging and getting the ball in good position off the tee.
2.Hitting more greens than normal.

Most of my playing partners would probably tell you that the strength of my game is putting. My biggest mental block is trying to hit too good of a shot. If I could somehow make myself be more conservative off the tee and hit to the safe parts of greens more often, I'm pretty sure I would drop my handicap a significant amount.

I walked on as a single and got paired up for a great threesome!

What?

Who said your best round ever had to be your lowest score????

What stands out?  Ummmm use your imagination. :lock:

I had shot 66 followed by 68 the next day. Played solid for 4 months till winter came but game didn't come back in the spring. :cry:
What I remember most is how easy it was. No swing thoughts, just strategy. Playing the course like a game of chess. Chasing that feeling for too many years.

Had a golden fortnight this summer when in August I shot a couple of front 9 41's and ultimately an 82 gross (I am an 18 HC)

What I remember is not taking driver to the course for two weeks, using 3 or 5 wood off the tees, playing one club more and swinging slow, holing more putts than normal and feeling CONFIDENT.

It slipped away as quickly as it arrived, though I am more consistent these days
Disclaimer*

I'm a handicap golfer in my 50's. Any opinions I have about golf equipment or professional golfers or the game in general should be taken as seriously as you would the opinions of a random guy in the fourball ahead of you who just shot 92 but is usually better than that.
