I feel like it should be fall, when I've practiced/played all summer and spring but its never fall. Usually my first few rounds out in the spring are my best because I just go out there and play instead of overthinking

Early Spring and Fall.

There's something to what was said about getting out in the spring and just trying to put a good swing on it. Wedges get the work in the Spring. Summer was always a work at it thing; thats when the ball is flying best and those 4-5 stokes you left out there for being in the wrong position, the errant 100 yards in, or that missed 10 footer get the attention.

Fall; around here Ive found thats when everyone buckles down. End of season is in sight and you bring what you got because playing gets all time you got, and the range is a ghost town. Trust it and play the game with a little more umph in the fall...

First few months. I get out more in the spring, early summer, and stop at the range and the putting green every day after work for a hour or so, then I get bored of the range and practice stops. I fall apart by mid September.

Summer Easily. The ball flies further because of lack of air resistance, I can play more often and the courses tend to be in better shape. 

 

My best rounds last few years have been late spring and late summer. Mostly later summer is when I get consistently better than other parts of the year.

Late August. In the early season I'm inconsistent. Then in the peak season I begin to think too much and as July and early August progress things start to fall apart to a point where I then just forget about figuring it out and just go out and hit the ball. This is the point I have always shot my best rounds. My swing is in mid-season form and my head isn't affecting me. Damn this game is so mental!

August for me, based on a history of when I've scored me best rounds of the season.

Usually early in the season for me, maybe four weeks in or so I get in a real groove where the game seems to come easy. I've gone stretches of three weeks without shooting above par. Okay well I'm the first tournament then I come crashing down and play to about a 4 handicap the rest of the year. Can't figure it out. Practicing more this year trying to change the results.
