I shot 89 in an event as a professional. What a miserable day that was. Not to blame the arrows, but some equipment didn't make the trip home that day.

I LOVE this thread ... it is so not WRX (where everyone is scratch).

I'm actually proud of my worst round ever. It was maybe a decade ago (when, oddly, I was playing fairly well). But it was one of those days when everything went wrong. I mean, usially, on the average day, some things are good, others not so much  - weird ... but this is golf ... some days you sink every putt, but every drive is in the woods. Other days, you hit every GIR, and three putt half the holes. Now and then, everything works, and you have a round of a lifetimes. Other days, nothing works (you just have to suck it up and get through the round). My worst (as memorable as my best) was Bethpage Black. Yeah, a hard course, but not THAT hard ... and I shot 148. Everything went wrong on every hole. Not just my shots ... but even the random breaks ...

Anyone had a day like that? When the golf Gods just decided you'd be cursed? When you weren't just shooting badly, but when the universe itself seemed to conspire against you?

On the bright side, there are also those weird days when everything goes right ... when every other hole you duck hook the crap out of the ball, and it should fly over the trees, smash someone's windshield, leading you to get sued, but instead it catches some little branch, kicks forward back onto the course, and rolls 100 extra yards down the cart path ... ;)

What a weird game ...

My highest was 148. My lowest, 64. Both were 75% random bloody luck.

Yep, I've been there. It took me to a 139. It was a long and miserable day.  I knew it was going to be rough when I was hitting 5 off the first tee...

3rd professional tournament of my career about 15 years ago......101.  It was about 25 degrees colder than what I was dressed for, it was like 35 degrees out.  I've never been so cold playing golf in my life, nothing went right.  Its very hard to pull the trigger when you are shivering uncontrollably.  Needless to say i've had bad rounds since but nothing compares to that.

played my first tourney this year and shot a 92 (course rating 71 from the tees we played) off a 7 handicap.  Thought, man cant get any worse than this, wont be able to win but at least tomorrow can score better and shot a 98.  Yep, that was just sad.  Learned a lot though, so I guess it wasnt my worst day in hindsight but sure felt like it.  Hadnt broken 90 in the wrong direction in over 6 months.

I remember my second round at state, sophomore year. The end of that year had just been a slow bowling ball of badness, but I ended up shooting a 123 (with a 64 on the front). Absolutely terrible.

Alltime I cannot remember, would have been some big, big numbers when I just started playing.
This year my two worst scoring rounds have come at Bayonet in Monterey. Played it twice this year and shot two 98s. One of those after shooting a 78 the previous day at HMB Ocean Course :-s

The thing is, is I absolutely adore the course. An absolute bear and I'll be playing multiple times per year, as long as I'm in California :)

Terrible swing. Mixed results.

haha....so you know exactly how i feel!

my round was brutal. I didn't even lose a ball and shot 88. It was a couple of months ago now but i think it hit into like 6 greenside bunkers and made double 4 times. Not just bogey, DOUBLE bogey from a greenside bunker. Either i thinned it out or left it in there. One time i ended up in a footprint on the downslope while also shortsided.

I went into the clubhouse afterwards and when people asked how i did i said "i had some really bad luck, hit it into the bunker and got caught in a shoe print, couldn't get it out and made double. If it wasn't for that i would've been 85 at worst"

got huge laughs

Back when I first began playing I had a really rough day at the par 72 - Lakes of Taylor Golf Club in Taylor, MI. You name it, I did it - 6 putt, slices, snap hooks, shanks, worm burners and all. I shot a disappointing 110. I never want to play like that again so I kept the scorecard as a reminder to help me remain calm when I'm on the course. It must be working because I've never had another day like that (knock on wood). It's a helleva game huh?

Getting the shanks at Pebble Beach after shooting a career round at Spyglass Hill. Only bright spot was the perfect weather and having the green fees covered by my company. Any other time may have resulted in my clubs being thrown off a cliff.

Just started playing golf last season and I went to the range maybe once before I rented a set and went out on the course with a few buddies. Shot a 135. It was brutal and yet I was hooked.

Best in my 1.5 seasons so far is a 99 and then an even 100 on back to back weekends. So jealous of guys on here who's "bad" rounds are mid-80's. Can't wait until triple digits is a distant memory. Getting my winter practice schedule going!!!

I know that I have done something terrible on the golf course that makes me angry.  In recent memory during a Myrtle trip I went 79 - 92. I was confused and sad.

The fact that you didn't freak out though made me think how I just don't do that anymore either. I can honestly say I don't lose my cool because I just can't see how it makes it more fun.  Probably realized that I'll never be on tour lol.

87. Worst tournament round ever is an 83.

Edited to add that since I started playing seriously, I do remember a 91 in my first club championship. And I think I had an 87 in horrible conditions at the California State Amateur back in 2007 or 2008. The wind was so bad, balls were getting blown off the greens at Monterey Peninsula Country Club.

Edited to add that it was actually a 90 at Monterey Peninsula. So, since I've been a plus, that is definitley the worst round I have shot.

My buddy once shot 87 at Desert Dunes CC in the Palm Springs area, and he was MEDALIST for the Southern California Amateur Championship qualifier that day! LOL! 35 to 50 mph winds that day!!

Normally my scores are 78-84 on the course I play most. Once in awhile I get hot and do 75 or 76 (no gimmes etc.) One day last summer I did 48 on the front. What the heck, I'll do better on the back. After #16 I was one away from 50! No one blowup hole, just one bad shot after another. Just 'hockeyed' it on in. Was under 60, but not by much. Two days later 80 on the nose. Go figure.Wasn't sick or tired. Just could not hit it right to save myself. Buddy I play with says, "you doing  this on purpose? You pissed or something?" I gave him 'the look.' Says he, "guess not." Ouch! I think it's tougher on you when it happens to someone else that you know can play decently. You don't know what to say.

^^^ it doesn't necessarily have to be your worst round score wise....i mean 88 is not literally my worst score ever (in the last 5 years it is but anyway) but it was more about discussing the worst you've performed in regards to your ability at the time

Had the best summer of golf during my amateur days and then tried out for a university golf team.  Played quite well the first three rounds of qualifying and then dialed up a crowd pleasing 88 on a course I had played a hundred times.  This is, and Hopefully always will be, the worst round of golf I ever experience.

We always talk about "best this" or "best that". I played terribly today and am depressed.

88 in my club championship as a 1 index. 5 shots higher then my next worst round in the last 2 years

can anyone beat that? (and by beat that, i mean beat that the bad way).

For the record, didn't curse once, no broken clubs, no slammed clubs. MtlJeff made golfwrx soapboxers proud LOL

Senior Club Championship, playing off a 5, shot 8 over in first 6 holes, parred rest of way in, so out of it first day; though did manage to pull it together, sort of 2 nd round, only shot 40 on front, 33 on back to come in 4th gross, 2nd Net in Championship Flight.

Any round that takes more than 4 hours - where are the slow play :busted_cop: ?

I play to a 0HC and have shot 87 twice and every 80s number beneath it in 2012.....  I play tees rated 75.1CR 141slope so things can really spiral out of control fast on a bad day.  IE....you finish making double on a tough uphill 460yd par4, and your only relief is the 247yd par 3 coming up next!  LOL  It's a hard course that can beat you down fast if you are off your game. Big scores happen sometimes..........it's part of the game.  IMO...a lot depends on where you play because for example......all 87s are not equal.

I'm a 4 index and I shot a 91 this past spring. Granted I was about a 9 at the time but it wasn't enjoyable looking back. I think a key to keeping a good and honorable score is to not think too much and to continue to have fun.

Travelled to Scotland.  Only had one great weather day, no wind, no rain.  Drove to Carnoustie, hit the ball well warming up.  Got on the course, parred #1, felt great.  Shot a 97, 22 over my hdcp.

Played once at Royal Troon (http://www.royaltroon.co.uk/) and started with 2 pars off a 5 Handicap. Finished on 110 with 20 penalty shots for the 10 balls I hit OB on the back nine. It got a bit windy!!

ps The only time I played Carnoustie I started 3,8 (birdie, quad bogey)  then played level par to the 17th. 17 and 18 beat me up and I finished with a gross 80.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), I don't have a number to attach to my worst round because it was a team match play tournament. I am not sure of the name of the format, but everyone hit a drive, then you and your partner would pick the best one and play alternate shot the rest of the way in. Now, what really made it so bad was that I was in the middle of a ridiculously hot streak. I'm talking not shooting over 75 in 4 weeks hot. Every putt it looked at just dropped.

So anyways, my partner and I breeze through the first round, and in the second, everything is going great, until I shove a little 3 footer on the 2nd hole. "Not a big deal," I tell myself, "it happens." And then I missed another. And another. And another. On the day, I think I missed 6 putts inside of 3 feet. It was like a spontaneous case of the yips. The worst was on the par 5 13th, when we were amazingly only down 2.  My partner knocked a wedge stiff, leaving me about a 2 foot birdie putt, which I proceeded to knock about 7 feet by the cup, and he missed the come backer.  So instead of tapping in the birdie to get the match within 1, we were now down 3 with 5 to play.

I guess part of the reason I consider it my worst round is that I wasn't just disappointing myself; I was letting down my partner.  We were routinely putting ourselves in position A with our ball-striking, and I would blow it by putting like a Parkinson's patient on cocaine.
