Yes and unfortunately, for the past couple of years, a couple of the worst days have been the first day of the club championships. No need to play the second 72 holes on Sunday after missing the cut.

Both times I've played my best ever round of golf (until that point) a week before the club championships and matched that score a week after the championships but everything falls apart for the championships week.

Once I do get fed up with the game, I either take a break (usually doesn't last more than a couple of days because even a bad day on the course with friends beats pretty much everything in life for a single with no kids) and play the next round with half a set just to break the pattern, hit the range or take a lesson.

So I lost one of my very best friends and closest golf buddy a week ago today. Massive Grabber while alone at home. Scott Ray wasn't a very good golfer, in fact he was terrible. Just last month he bought a new Grenade Driver and was excited to use it. He was finally going to out drive me! He never hit a ball with it.
55 years old.
Scott would tell me every time we played that he loved Golf because it was the one time when all of his stress was relieved, his cares washed away. When golfing he could forget about the normal every day worries. On the course Scott would only care about golf and the thing is, he really didn't care. It was his "nothing place".
Scott and I ran boats all over the planet for better than 2 decades. He held an unlimited license and was a Cruzan back when that was a good thing. He would actually get better at golf the more beer he drank. His head covers were all Popeye, Brutus and Whimpy. He played Eye 2s and loved yellow balls.
The cart girls are going to miss Scott asking for a "milk shake" every single time they came through.
My son Ian is going to miss his quarter a hole matches with my friend.
I'm going to miss him for the rest of my life.
Golf will never be the same for me.
But every time I play, I will have the best damn time of my life.
There will never be another bad round.
Go ahead and hit Scott, your'e up.

Gonna go play this weekend with our regular group less 1.
Giant slices off the T will be considered a practice swing and fairway fluffing is expected.
Bud heavy in the can shall be generously applied to forestall dehydration and improve contact.
The poor cart girls are sure to be bombarded with repeated requests for a milkshake.
The cart boy will be tipped over generous and the pro chatted up.
And I am going to have best damn round of golf I ever played.

I've had exactly one round since I became what I would consider a decent golfer. I'll not include nor do I even remember much of the first few years.

I was playing with someone new that had heard I was a GREAT golfer. Due to that I was in for the most humbling round of my life. I not only failed to register a single par but I didn't hit a single shot that I would call good. Not one. I never did add up my score but it was probably 110 or slightly more. At the time of that round I didn't have an official HC established but most rounds on admittedly easy courses were mid to upper 70's. So I was probably about a 5-6 back then. Due to playing a lot and some semi competitive golf a million years ago, I have always had the ability to go pretty low if everything is working and I think I was bragging about the 69 I had shot a week or two ago to him while we were waiting for the first tee to clear. The only thing I'll take from that round is that I will never EVER even think about talking myself up again. I used to like the pressure that would bring, I usually play better under a little. This was the most embarrassing 4 hours of my life.

So what went wrong? Heck if I know. The course we were playing was a lot harder than the courses I usually play and significantly tighter. I was pushing everything off the tee initially. I fixed that midway through the round and then started pulling them. I struck the ball pretty clean and don't recall any duffs. I wasn't hooking or slicing. Just pushing and pulling. Irons again were struck clean for the most part but pushing and pulling the entire round. The short game is really what killed me though. I couldn't get up and down to save my life. If I wasn't behind a tree from just off the green I'd leave myself 40ft to try to save par or bogey. Didn't drop a putt longer than 4ft on the day either.

I remember standing on the 18th tee thinking that I'd finally get my Par. It's a short par 4 that would be driveable if it wasn't surrounded by bunkers except about a 5ft path open in the front of it. I pulled a long iron out as the landing area 80-100 yards out was literally 60 yards wide. I struck it clean and ended up 80 yards out. Except I'd pulled it 100 yards and was in hole 11's fairway. Hit my next shot around trees and ended up in the green side bunkers I'd been trying to avoid from the tee. Should have known since it was that kind of day. I did salvage a regular bogey out of it.

Thank god that's now just a bad memory. I've played bad since then for sure. But I've always had something positive. Even if just a couple shots or holes. I don't think I've played 18 since then and not birdied a hole, let alone not made a par.

Played a round last fall where nothing was going right.  Two balls in the water, a few driblblers and just poor shots all around.  That's what happens when you are reworking your swing but it was incredibly frustrating.  Ended up playing an extra 9 holes and things went better then but there was some additional range time required to work off the guilt of a bad round.  Bad rounds can really affect my mood and I have to head directly to the range to work things out some otherwise I'll feel miserable the rest of the day.  Sounds like  a psychiatrist is needed huh.

Good thread, I love honesty. I guess I am 7 sucky rounds, and three somewhat good rounds. I still play somewhere near bogey most times. Sure, I have had a few good rounds, but those are like twenty to one. I am learning to just have fun and forget the competition, none of us are playing for anything. I have not played yet this year as there is 8 inches of white stuff on the ground, and that will take two weeks to clear up, maybe less. I don't mind as my knee is still healing up from last year. I will go to the driving range sometime and see what happens.

Had another disgusting round last week, played sh***y.  I said it before and will again, no excuses sh*** rounds happen.   I am fine with that too, till buddies say they wish for my sh*** rounds.  What no one can hear is me mumbling why can they complain about sh*** rounds and I listen but I am not supposed to openly call my sh*** round what it is... LOL Perfect I will never be.  :beach:

Does that suck or what? About half of your strokes going 150 - 500 yds, and another half to make up the remaining 1 - 50 ft. WTF??

Probably the next round I play. Haven’t had the chance to play since last June. I spent July-October studying for the professional engineering exam most days after work. I work as an engineer for a construction company and we were in the final stages of the project also. Working 7 days a week and studying for the exam took all my time.

Hoping when I play this weekend that it won’t be too bad lol

At least I passed the exam and will not have to study for it again. It’s amazing how much you forget 4 years after college.

Here lately, every time I step on a course. I played Sunday, managed to hit 86% of fairways, which is a number I donít think Iíve ever achieved honestly. I missed 1 per side. Proceeded to hit 1 GIR on the front and 2 on the back for a whoppin 17%, and 32 puts on the way to a crowd pleaser of an 87. Historically, my high scores have always come from fairway misses. Iíve worked so hard on my long game over the last few years, obviously neglecting my mid-short game. 100-200 yards is none my worst aspect of my game. Putting fluctuates flgreatly. I usually have anywhere from 27-33 putts per round, depending on how Iím chipping that day. It was a bit wet Sunday, and ever chip bit hard and stopped within a few feet of where it landed. Typically the greens at my home course are quite firm so they usually release. I just couldnít adjust and left myself a ton of 10ft+ putts

I was never better than a mid-teens HCP and a round in the mid-upper 80's is good for me.   I have had bad days where I push 100 or go over but I just write them off.  However, it has happened on two occasions in the last 15 years where I was unable to do anything with any club - I felt like I had never played before and was in semi-shock after both of those rounds.  My solution was to not touch a club for a week and in both cases I was right back to my normal game.  Temporary insanity? Brain fart?  I do not know but it is a strange experience.

Yes, I always suck when I play.  But when you sink that 20 footer, chip in, or hit that long drive right down the fairway, that's what keeps me going!  :)

Is this a trick question?! :-P  I can be decent or suck from hole to hole and round to round! LOL  It depends on how my back feels, which way the birds fly, if there is voodoo magic in the area...etc... :-P
