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.

I'm notorious for this kind of thing. Wish I could put together a whole round just ONCE lol. My most, let's call it "bipolar", round was just that. Shot 47 on the front and 36 on the back. I found magic with my putter(or luck) on the back 9. Made several putts around 15 feet or more to save par. What surprised me so much about it is I'm the type that if I start blowing up, especially early in a round, I get in my own head and basically just stop keeping score and give up. Even though this was far from my best round score wise, I still consider it one of my best rounds or best because it taught me one bad hole doesn't mean your round is dead. My mental game still isn't flawless but it's much better ever since that day.

Th biggest differential between front and back usually occurs when the front 9 is friendly and the back 9 has a wager on it.  Amazing things (good and bad) happen on the back 9.

I had a 14 stroke difference and went 51-37. Normally it’s the other way around for most people, but I almost always play as good or better on the back side on a good day.

To shoot 51, I was completely out of whack and felt like I couldn’t even hit the ball. Then I birdied the 9th hole and something clearly “clicked” on that hole, and it was pretty much lights out (for a 5 hcp) from there.

Done a couple of 48-36, on the same course. But that's my typical Jeckle and Hyde golfing. which is better then Jeckle and Hyde from one hole to the next.

I did this last year - shot 35/45 at my home course. Absolutely killed me as I also had not broken through. Finally got that sweet sweet 76 this year!

I went 45-36 in a tournament once many years ago.

I also went 41-33 literally a month ago in our club championship second round.

I'm not the hottest starter apparently lol.

39 on the front, 53 on the back today.  With a whopping 11 on the par 5 13th (5 penalty shots on the same hole)

I haven't gone over 90 in a while but I couldn't hit the middle of the club today, terrible

39-60.

To make matters worse, it was a shotgun start off 14, so that 60 was actually book-ending a career front 9.  First round back after neck fusion surgery.  I was so far out of the money coming off 18 I really didn't care what happened from that point, but oh! the pressure coming up 13 to avoid triple digits ...
