It's been a while since I had a full 10 shot swing, but a few years ago I had one summer where more often than I would care to admit I would go 46-36 or 36-46.

Just yesterday went -6 on front for 30 and 3 over back for 38. My personal best is 4 under... not impressed to say the least.

Went 56-38 years ago in a junior tournament. Got a few laughs from my buddies for sure.

44-30 at Windermere GC in Cumming, GA and 45-31 at Legacy GC in Florida.

The first one happened many moons ago.  I don't remember much other than I just got hot with everything.  I remember I just got back into the game and had just started taking lessons again and after the front nine I called to reserve a lesson...then I figured it all out and shoot 30 on the back nine (which isn't easy there).  Then I remember going to the lesson a couple of days later and we worked on my putting because my swing had really come along.  It would have been interesting to see what in the world I was doing with my swing on the front nine.


The second happened at a Florida Mid-Am qualifier.  I actually shot the 45 on the back nine...which I played first.  The adrenaline was kicking into overdrive.  On the first hole (10th hole), we played from the back tees and I took, what felt like a very easy swing, and flew the fairway bunker on the left with ease..something I have never come close to doing.  Then a couple of holes later I had my perfect club for me and flush it and it's 20 yards short.  

But the big thing was I had the yips from short distance.  I shoot 31 on the back (front nine) with 2 bogeys.  I bogeyed my 10th hole and then started to drop putts, one after another.  I eagled the par-5 4th hole.  I yipped a 2-footer to make bogey on my 15th hole and made a 30-footer on my 17th hole for birdie and a 20-footer to save par on my 18th hole.  I missed the cut by 1-stroke.  I felt completely off kilter the entire day.

44 out for a +9 off a handicap of 9 at the time and shot a gross 4 under back nine for a 32. Gross 76 off of 9 and two completely different halves..
I usually said to myself back then and still do to this day if I drop too many shots too early I'll reassess my goals and make a new goal of trying to stay inside the buffer and keep the 0.1 at bay...
