Back nines are almost always better

I will say it depends on how you're warming up. Instead of just beating balls, try working on specific things. I'm not saying practice, but start with some feet together 9 to 3 swings. Once that is consistent,get into your typical stance and do the same. Then move to full swings with clubs from 9-6-hybrid-driver. Then back down.
It's a great way to warm up (for me). Keeps me in Rythym and good tempo.

I feel the same way. My back scores are typically better than the front because I'm much more relaxed and not worried about going low st that point. If I hit balls before my round I typically start thinking too much and it carries over into the round and makes things worse which sucks. I've got demons in my head to say the least

I always shoot 6-10 strokes less on back 9.
the lesser warm up time before round, the bigger gap between two.
Also, I scored better on back 9 when my front 9 is at the worst because I just stop giving damn about score

Last weekend: F9- 40 B9: 45
I've came to conclusion that when I make the turn and have a shot at the 70's, I tend to play conservative and it costs me. I end up do doing stupid sh!% and costing myself myself shots.

I started thinking about course designed and started thinking about the courses that i regularly play and i like the back nine holes better. They seem to be more interesting from a design stand point. Or maybe it is just that i play better on the back. haha.

I put pressure on myself to get off to a good start. I think I'll try taking things as they come for the rest of the year.

Sometimes I hit a bucket before the round, and others times I don't. It doesn't seem to matter at all. My back nines have been (on average ) about 5 strokes better than my fronts this year. These are are at all different course so it's not like it's one track with an easy back.
The only round that really stands out that my front nine was significantly better was the first round of the year when I thought I was going to be terrible as I hadn't even hit a golf ball in over 6 months.
make scoring notes on you're scorecard so you can break it down after the round and see where you're losing strokes. Work on that and spend time on that warming up on range. I would rather spend 30 min. hitting chips, pitches, and half wedge shots around the short game area than just hitting range balls or putting. Playing is more about performing under variable conditions and uncertainty, it's difficult to replicate that on the range,but much easier to do so around the chipping green and will zero in you're touch and club control quicker.
