Skipped out of work early and Walked on as a single today got hooked up with a guy and a woman that were playing together, I broke 80! For the first time!!! Shot a 79

Not a difficult track par 71, 70.4/121 6330 yds from the tips but I did it.

5 bogeys, 2 doubles, 10 pars and a birdie

I hit 11 of 14 fairways, 7 girs, I had 31 total putts including 14 two putts and 3 one putts

I scrambled on 11 hole and only saved par 36% of the time so getting up and down is something I know I need to work on.

The big thing for me is that now that I did it I know I can do it again.

Golf Rule #2: After your personal best comes the worst round you've played in some time.

Congrats on your accomplishment! I remember the first time I shot 79 (sub 80) for the first time! 2 eagles to make it happen! What a feeling though to add the numbers at the end of the round and know you did it!


Short game though... gotta get that in shape and that 79 turns into a 74 real easy.

Be good!

Yeah short game, I need fewer putts and need to be able to get up and down more often. The driver was working well today and I made it a point to not leave any putts short, like I said the phsychology of doing it lets me know I can do it again, and while I practice 5 days a week this adds motivation..

That's the truth! I shot my all time low of 73 this past summer, and the next round was something like 86 or 89 haha

Big congrats !

Just an odd thought I had.....

I'm amazed at how many higher cap players on here know their stats in such great detail. I can recount every shot of every round over say the last half dozen or more played and still couldn't give you any "stats" without looking them up.

That's kinda cool.

I seem to be able to remember every, maybe with the exception of some of the shorter putts, shot of my last round for about four or five days, then I have trouble, always seem to be able to remember the howlers and better shots for much longer though.
