I shot a 73 where I was 4 under through 8 then went double double single in a 3 hole stretch.  Made another bogey and a birdie coming in.

Only 3 pars and 2 eagles is tough to beat.

I once shot a 75 without making a par until the 15th hole.

4 birdies, an eagle, and 9 bogeys.

Than of course, parred in

I now have 3 79s to my credit, two of which included a triple and two doubles. Even par the other 15 holes (both with a couple of birds and a couple of bogeys). My other 79 was all pars / bogeys with one birdie and somewhat “boring”.

On all 3 of them, I stood on the 18th tee with a chance to go lower (on two of them just needed a bogey and got my bogey)...on one of them I tripled it for my first 79.

Absolutely was.  2018 golf season was an abomination, and I'm glad it ended on a high-note with a walk-off 7 iron to win my match.

Started +5 thru 3, then played the next 13 holes -1. Got to hole 17 and realized the stretch I was on and proceeded to crap the bed with a 9. Bogeyed 18 for an 80. Solid.

Also another memorable round was where I had 3 birdies, and eagle, 2 doubles, 8 bogeys. Ended with a 79.

Then there are the rounds where I couldn't strike it any better, drop a couple birds while missing at least 3 other very makeable ones and end up with something in low to mid 70s, which had the potential for so much more.

Golf man.
