I just wonder how many people have had what happened to me yesterday happen to them. I Started off my round yesterday triple,double,triple,double, quad to be +14 after only 5 holes. Made one more bogey on 8 and mixed three pars in for a even 50 on the front. Not my best stuff for sure. Make the turn and par the first 5 hole. Then finish with two bogeys and a stupid double on 18 to shoot a 40 on the back(which for me is a very good 9 hole score). 10 strokes under what i did on the front. Id consider the two nines equally challenging on paper.  So im sure you guys have some good stories of nines being total opposites so lets hear them!

52-37 earlier this year.  I was coming off a wrist injury.  I had taken 3ish months off and was playing my 5th round in 3 days (golf trip).  The wrist was acting again and my short game was a disaster.

I took a 6 on the first 8 holes of the round... 2 bogies, 2 triples, 4 doubles.  Felt completely lost.  The worst part was I hit every fairway during the 52.  So my 52 was completed with no penalty strokes.

Something clicked on #9 and I suddenly found my game.  Shot +1 over the final 10 holes LOL

Playing off an 18 handicap,

I shot 11 over on the front 9, and an even par back 9 at the start of this year.

As I posted elsewhere on here, I was 2 under on the back 9 through the 17, but managed to double bogey the last.

51 - 39 earlier this year.  I played holes 10 through 16 even before finishing double, bogey.  I haven't put two solid nines together in my last twenty, if I'm consistent it is 45-45, but is usually 40-49.  I've shot too many 89s this year.

Once shot 29 on the front, par 35. It started raining on the ninth green as I sank an eagle putt. The group wanted to wait out the storm in the 19th hole. An hour later, it was decided to pay off the bets and cancel the rest of the round. I went out alone to play out what could have been my best round ever, but shot 40 on the back. Rained the whole nine, but the pocket full of cash I won on the front help keep my spirits up.

Went 54-36 on a 35,36 course 8 years back. Never played so bad on the front and at the time was as good as I could play on the back. Talk about a "new me" on the back 9.

Last weekend I had a best ever 39 on the front in the rain.  
Rain stopped on the back and I promptly shot a 49.  I knew I played  the front well, but as soon as my partner told me I shot 39 I  had the mental effect take over.

Local muni, 4700 yards, Par 65. Super fun little course, and the quickest way to get 18 in before work.

Par 33 on front, Par 32 on back.

I always start out cold first thing and frequently will go 8-9 over on the front, just from warming up. Then on the back I will frequently shoot even par. So 42-32 for me.

Frustrating because I really want to hit 65 on this course, but my best so far is 70. Only been truly serious about golf for this summer though, so I'm hoping to keep improving. My putting is always good, but my tee game is lacking when the big stick comes out. Thankfully on this course, I can leave the driver at home.

It's so hard to put 18 holes together well.

53-39 in tournament play in college. Started on the par 5 18th (shotgun) and made an 8 on that hole. Then I shoot 39 on the front. I get to the 10th hole, another par 5, and put up another 8.

My club championship this year........16 shot differential

I hit 2 OB on 1 and 2 (with a 4 iron on 1 and 2 iron on 2). Was +9 through 2 holes. Had four Snowmen or worse on the front 9. Had to take 3 unplayables on the front. started to become comical actually.

Double of Jameson at the turn, and come out guns blazing. Birdie on 10,  a 230 yard par 3. I was even (on the back) through 16. On 17, toe hooked one with a 2 iron and ended up having to take an unplayable. Another snowman and par on 18. If not for that bad tee shot on 17, I would have reached the 20 stroke differential of 56-36.

It was something to behold.

3 day comp at Carnoustie, Panmure and Kingsbarns in October (?); when i was an Assistant Pro many-many years ago.

Day 1 - Kingsbarns. Weather was ok'ish, I played like a donkey = 80
Day 2 - Panmure. Weather was fab - played as a good as i could = 69
Day 3 - Carnoustie. Weather fine front 9 = +1. Then the rain came in sideways, blowing a gale - i tried my hardest on every single shot = 89.

3 completely different days and scores; the last day culminating in 37 front nine and 52 back nine :crazy:

A few weeks ago I pulled off a 43 out, 53 in.

I took a 9 on the 14th hole, with two penalty strokes to boot. That hurts.
