Shot my 1st sub 80 round.. shot a 79.. previous best was 80.. 9 pars and 1 eagle.. I started with 5 pars in a row... On 13 I break out the new Cobra F8+. RIP a drive 276 straight down the middle.. Followed by a 4 hybrid from 176 to 10 feet and drain the putt.

 

Then took mom to lunch.. what a great day.. The only thing missing was my beautiful wife who took 1 of her best friends to Lake Chelan for a girls get away of golf and wine tasting. It was still a great day since she had a great time..

Congratulations and welcome to the club!! The easy part of golf is over and the hard part begins. But you got a taste of what your future holds. As most guys around here (including me) will attest... taking a golfer from 100 to 90's can be accomplished rather quickly - dramatically; assuming the person is interested and willing. Going from 90's to 80's takes more effort and a lot of people can play in this range and have a great time all the time. However, and now that you've broken 80 you're screwed! You will never look at the game as you have before. You'll always and forever want to take your game lower. 80's is not where you know you belong. That's what will drive your skill level and enjoyment. And... heartache. 

Ask any of the guys around here whether they be scratch, low hcp., or guys like yourself. Going low is never low enough.

 

Again, congratulations on your accomplishment. Now get back out there and repeat it.  :)

Yeah I know I'm screwed. . My best friend beat me to 80 and he's done that twice. I beat him to under 80. So now I have to try to live up to that.. lol. Shooting low to mid 80's was great but frustrating. Now I don't think I'll look at that as good enough ever again. .

 

Thanks to you all.. it's taken 20 years and 10 of serious golf to here now I need to maintain that or better..

Congrats brother! Feels surreal doesn't it, like everything just clicked, at least that's how I felt when I broke 80, shot a 72 and a 78. Still trying to get back there and still chasing the little white ball.
