Pros do the same thing. Taylor Vaughn had a 12 stroke differential in his two rounds last week. Cink had a 10 shot difference. They have swings just as wild as us and just at a lower level.

My last 6 rounds, Easy course (68.9/118) where I usually shoot right around 80: 97 and 95. I walked off the day of the 97 after putting 2 in the water on 15.
Sandwiched between those was an 83 (71.3/134).
After that I had two 86's at my folks course, albeit the greens were hideously bumpy.
Last Sunday an 87 on another easy course where my average score through 8 rounds is 80.
Just having a bad run, and my back has been acting up.
Golf is funny....and torturous.

I hate it even worse when I shoot a 37, make the turn, pop a Diet Coke, eat some Nabs, tee off on #10 and post a 47.  This game will make you crazy, if you are weak of mind.

Not sure if it is my biggest difference between rounds, I am thinking probably not but the one that sticks in my head is shooting 68-80 in a big Open competition. I still qualified but I went from topping the leaderboard to making it way down in the pack.

I went 75-92 on Labor Day weekend.  Nothing felt different except my pride after the 92.  As has been mentioned, golf is a funny game.

13 shots isn't a huge difference for an amateur, especially if you're in the 5-15 index range. I'd imagine most say, 10 indexes, have that type of range in their top 20 scores

I had a period back in the spring where I shot high 70s / low 80s over the course of 8 rounds...never lower than 79 nor worse than 82.  I only lost 1 ball the entire 7 rounds. I thought I had finally figured golf out (I know that 80 isn’t terribly good but I had gotten so consistent and the swing felt so good that it was only a matter of time before I really busted some low ones out).

Anyway, I started working 500 miles from my house (flying in every week) and needless to say didn’t play any golf during that time (2 months).

Started playing again in the summer, but I probably only got a total of 5 rounds in. I was so bad that I stopped counting score during most of my rounds. In one round, if I had kept score all the way through, I probably would have shot 110.

I took about a month off, came back and shot a 79 the 1st round back.

The funny thing is that every one of the rounds was legit. Meaning, the 110 was every bit of a 110 and I hit the ball as poorly as that sounds, and the 79 was legit too and could have been lower. I’ve been struggling with a too inside out move that is either a shank, or a beautiful baby draw.

Golf is a weird game.

Funny thing about the Old Course, you can hit it good and shoot in the 90's......LOL

In 2018 I shot a 69 (tied my lowest ever) and I also shot a 95 at one of the Pinehurst courses when the wheels absolutely fell off. It's a crazy game and that's why I pay to play and don't get paid to play

Ever see a Cy Young caliber pitcher get shelled? Or a great QB throw 4 picks in a game?

It happens. It's called variance. That's sports. Ups and downs bouncing around on a trend line.

I could play 36 on the same course the same day and do worse. I shot between 73-100 this season. that was brutal.

The one I remember was club championship some years ago now. shot 75 Friday and tied my personal best on the course. Saturday comes and I am feeling great. I birdie the opening hole and grind for 86. follow that up Sunday with fighting a horrible case of the snaphooks. I don't ever miss left. It was a long weekend, but great learning experience.

Shot 81, and two weeks later, a 96. I could do no wrong the first time, then nothing right the second time, so I took a break for awhile. Shot an 82 yesterday, different course, so it comes and goes.
