Most memorable would have to be shooting 69 at the Arnold Palmer course at the Marriott Desert Ridge Wildfire GC.  It was a fluke.  I have never broken 80 before.  

 

Probably my biggest accomplishment has been getting my HCP back to 9.  Before my knee replacement 18 months ago, I had ballooned up to 14.1 because I couldn't get to my lead side.  I just wanted to play no matter what.  After surgery, I spent quite a bit of time practicing my short game and going back to the fundamentals of my swing.  By the end of last summer I was down to 11.2  I was wondering if I needed to update my avatar hcp, but since we started posting scores on March 1, I have had several scores in the 70's and I can now say that as of May 15 I am officially a 9.0 again!

 

But a few bad scores in the high 80's can quickly take care of that!!!

 

 

It sounds like you have some golf skills and a strong mind to get back out and bring the handicap down to a 9. Congrats on the recovery! Keep playing well!

Thanks! I wish I had started playing at a younger age. The old body is my HCP now. :)

As a side broke 90 again for the first time in 2-3 months. That felt great. Hopefully I can keep that momentum going even though the last time on the course was a dumpster fire.
