Ever been less than elated after a personal best?

Ever have a personal best round but were less than elated after?
 
Yeah, sounds strange but.....
 
There's an 18-hole Par 3 at one of the ocean beaches on the south shore of Long Island. Holes range from 60 to 110 yards - so it's great wedge practice - and arranged in two loops.
 
Here's what it looks like in Google Earth...
 
The loops wind thru dunes and scrub pines and each hole is a little different, plus most days - including the one I played - there's a decent breeze coming in off the ocean; the effect being that on each hole the wind is coming from a different direction. And with a few small elevation changes along the way the wind can be very different at the green vs at the tee.
 
Well... I pretty much hit almost every green except for two or three I came up a few feet short - going upwind - and two or three where I hit the green but then rolled off the back - going downwind. 
 
So crosswind either way I seemed to handle ok this time. And didn't lose a single ball, vs all previous times I've been there (you do NOT go digging in the underbrush .. it's all poison ivy and deer ticks!).
 
There's also one hole (the 110-yarder, #13) that's really a Par 4 with a 90 degree dogleg right after maybe 80ish yards .. but once when playing with an older gentleman he showed me the shortcut .. totally blind over the trees and underbrush .. using the double-top of one particular tree as your aim line.
 
On this hole the wind was about 3/4 at you / from right-to-left. Decided to (literally) give it a shot. Played two balls (no one else around anywhere) - first one I launched into the shortcut and kinda looked like it took the right line, but maybe the wind was pushing it back; second one I knocked down right into the corner where I was aiming. 
 
Walked up there to see...
RM_panorama.jpg
 
* this is a 90-degree "panorama" shot so hopefully it displays OK here?
 
The first shot, the blind one, is sitting on the left edge of the green within a makeable putt distance -- which, yup, I missed ;-) -- and the second is at my feet at the bottom center of the pic; the right side of the pic is looking back towards the tee. 
 
So, yeah, I was happy that I hit 2 of 2 shots well; finished the hole and continued on through the second loop hitting or very nearly hitting each green.
 
Got to #18 which is the second longest at 100 yards and usually one of the most exposed to the wind; today it was 3/4 at you / from left-to-right. Tee shot started straight but then got pushed right at the end - hit the right side of the green but rolled off. Dropped a second and tried to hit it a little stronger and a little more left, but overdid it just a touch and ended up just off the left edge of the green.
 
So 2 for 2 acceptable outcomes given the wind (plus that I've lost balls on that hole before, too, and have scored up to a 7 on it).
 
But.... I walked off the course _not_ jumping up and down happy....
 
Don't know but it kinda felt a bit like a "childhood lost" moment ... ie. previously where I've really had to play the course and kinda struggled on several of the holes ... that day I just kinda stepped in and took my swing and watched the ball the go in the right direction...
 
So, anyway, this seemed more of a "story" than fit in to "How'd You Play Today?" and just felt like sharing :-) 
 
 
Oh, PS:
I just really enjoy going down there; the barrier islands and the ocean beaches are truly unique places. If you want to explore "driving" over the inner bay bridge and then the causeway to get out onto the outer island, here's a Google Earth Street View link...

I'm Never satisfied because I always think about the strokes lost during a round. It's a horrible sickness

Same here. After my best round I'd be thinking about the bad shots that could have made the round even better.

Yes. I shot 80 for the 2nd time in two weeks. Most guys would be very happy with that. Me... not so much. I want a 7 in front of my score. Anything less... I feel I've left too much out there.

My lowest score at my home course is a one over par 74, but I was very deflated walking off the eighteenth as I went bogey bogey to finish 😬

Great topic. I had been holding onto this story waiting for the right time to tell it....and the moment is now.

 

On April 12, I broke 80 for the first time by shooting 78. I hit 3 balls into the hazard on the front then played nearly perfect golf for the back in 20-30mph gusts (not an exaggeration). 5 birdies total in the round which was also a personal best.

 

So why feel bad about it? I'll tell you why. I could've EASILY been 2 strokes better and broken par for 9 my first time ever.

 

Knowing that magic moment of breaking 80 was attainable, I busted my butt to make par on 16 and 17 dead into the wind. Standing on 18 tee, I knew birdie would've been my first time breaking par for 9. 18 is 545y par 5 that comes back to finish at the clubhouse. I've never reached in two. I blasted my drive, I mean BLASTED 320 yards and had a potential birdie/eagle in my sights with only 225 left to the pin. R to L wind, I pulled 4 iron hoping to ride a draw through the mouth of the green up to the pin.

 

No draw. Matter of fact, push. An atomic DJ push that landed pin high, right of the green, and rolled to within inches of the cart path bordering the club house. Now, gotta carry the bunker at an awkward angle then make the putt for the birdie 35.

Chunk. [emoji35]

Ok no problem, same shot up and down for par 36.

Chunk into bunker. [emoji35]🤬[emoji35]🤬[emoji35]

UGH! Just get the damn ball on the green so I can two putt for 79.

Up and on. Decent shot really. 10ft uphill left. Still know I only need a two putt so I focus on speed and drain the first putt for a bogey 37 and 78 overall.

 

I walked off that green feeling cruddy because of how poorly I played the hole. More than anything, I was lamenting the decision to play 4 iron. More than that, the thought of trying a draw in that spot when I don't really have that in my bag.

 

But now I feel like a crazy person because that's the best round of my life. I should enjoy it no matter how it came. We're a crazy bunch.

Looks like a beautiful place and a peaceful walk.... the golf is definitely secondary.

Yeah, thx, it is ... and it was particularly quiet - ie. very few people - that day, too. Guess maybe I was more into just being out there and enjoying it!

I just had the opposite. While it was not my personal worst round, I had a pretty bad round today and am elated.

 

I was playing injured, but saw somethings that I hope to take into my full swings once I have fully recovered. And having spent the past 2 weeks sitting at home it was nice to be outside all weekend.

Great story, STUD! Sounds like you played really, really well most of the round (so should be happy with that), but totally understand the unhappy ending....

It's very hard not to. But all the online guru mental game coaches say to hold on to the GOOD shots -- use the positive memory to reinforce / ingrain the good swing.

(or so I've read and heard.........)

This is a great thread at reminding us as golfers that we always want more. Heck the pros when they win talk about leaving shots out there.

 

I think that is the nature of this stupid game. This year has been my most consistent of the last 3 and I still feel that I should be doing better. I can't be happy with just finally being consistent.

 

(And now having said this I will probably go the other direction)

My PB is a 62 that included a (29) on the inward half.

After the round, instead of gleefully basking in the congratulatory notice of my playing partners, I lamented the missed short (~6 foot) birdie putts on the first 4 holes.

This game can be a maddening mistress.

Now, I guess that I was more elated with my second through fifth personal best rounds than my first. Although that one probably jump started the others, proving to myself I could score well.

 

In April of 2014, I was going through a town I used to live in and had played that course (short 9 hole course) many times 10 years previously. My game had improved and thought it would be fun to play a quick 9 holes. The holes that day seemed to be in the easiest locations. And I shot my best round ever on the front. So good I decided to play 18 and see if I could keep it up.

 

Previously, I would have say 7 great holes and then blow 2 holes per 9 to "ruin" my score. This was the first time I play 18 holes in a row without a major error. And may be my only bogey free round.

 

My only problem was that it was too easy that day, and I was buy myself. So I went to play my course the next day, with some friends, and played scored just one stroke worse. This I was elated about.

 

I actually played the 5 best rounds of my life that week. And honestly, I have never been happy with back to back rounds since then. Other than simply happy to be there.
