For my 600th post (a mild achievement), it is kind of poetic that I get to celebrate first in my golf career. (a mild achievement)   It finally happened.  After trying to figure out how to put toget

I'm a 24 handicap I have been playing serious for about 10 months now at the age of 32. And today finally broke 90 (89). The rough was five plus inches at pine brook golf course in CLE. The green were

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I get to add another post to this thread. Your boy broke 80 today for the first time.

 

New PB: 78

 

 

So here's how it happened:

Front 9

-Straight to the first tee

-Somewhat windy (15-20mph)

-Took a solid 4 holes to start feeling right

-Hit 3 balls in the hazard on the front 9

-Found ways to make bogey when I didn't deserve it

-Ugly triple on 9 lowered the expectations way down

 

Back 9

-Wind picked up (30-40mph gusts)

-More of the same golf through 10, 11

-->Drained a birdie from off the green on 12

-13,14 throwing darts

-15 "get off this green with no worse than bogey"

-16 conservative off the tee then perfect 2nd

-17 dead into wind.

-->2nd shot 175

-->When it's breezy swing easy 5i

-18 tried to give it away with nervy chips

-->Knew I had 2 putts for 79

-->Drained the first from 10

 

 

Overall

-5 birdies...Wtf? The most I've ever had before was 2

-30 putts

--> 2 from off green

--> Changed grip that made all the difference

 

 

What a perfect day to be out there. Windy but hot so I stayed cool. It was truly rare round for me to shoot so well but still make tons of mistakes. If I were posting in Sluggo's BSOTD thread, I'd have at least 7 that I could elaborate on. I know it's not sustainable but I'm glad I made it.

 

 

 

 

 

WOOOOOOO. Beer time.

I don't recall the first time I broke 90 and have yet to break 80, but I found this ball recently in my old ball stash from the first time I shot a sub 40 Nine.

 

2005 I was around a 90 shooter and was always happy to break 90, that was always the goal. On this day I remember I shot a 44 on front as my buddy mentioned at the turn that I was on pace to break 90. That must have made me nervous as #10 was an easy 130 yard par 3 and I step up and bladed a 9-iron. This thing was a line drive that bounced on the green then hit the stick dead square and ended up 10 ft from the cup when it should have been 30 yards past the green. Ended up parring the hole.

 

I settled down for the rest of the back nine and really played well for a 3-over 39, my first sub 40 nine and a very good for me at the time 83.

First time I broke 90 was last season. Needed my first eagle on a par 5 to do it, so I got two milestones that day.

Broke par for the first time recently! My previous best was +3. I still had 31 putts so I guess I know what I need to clean up...

I just had the round of my life!!! Every ball I stood over felt like it was going to go exactly where I wanted it to. Driver, irons, wedges, and putter were all on as good as they've ever been, and all working together was amazing. With all that being said I shot 76!!!! 38-38 on a par 72. Now that I know it's possible, it's going to be a real bummer when I have one of those days when I shoot 92.
