How many shots can you remember?

Recommended Posts

I can still remember a few real good (lucky) shots from 20 or 30 years ago.  I still remember a handful of painful bad shots that cost me during a tournament.  I can recall every shot in detail from the last few rounds.   For example, I still remember a high, faded 5w into the green at the 17th hole at Marsh Harbor in Myrtle Beach like it was yesterday.....and it happened back in 1987.  I must have missed the putt because I can't remember it!  😁

When it comes to remembering courses its weird.  If I play in a scramble and start on anything but hole 1 I have a lot of trouble remembering the layout and par of the holes.  When I play a normal round or if I start on hole 1 in a scramble I can keep them all straight and know the layout and par when recalling the course.  


edit to add....

another good (lucky) shot i can still remember was from a random round from the fall of about 1979 at Spring Ford CC on the 8th hole after popping up a driver.  The second shot I had no business trying but it was a high faded 7i over a couple trees on the corner of a slight dogleg with the green guarded in front by a creek, to about 8'.  Again, I don't remember making the putt for birdie.  I kinda see a pattern of not remembering any putts!  🤔

I'm like most and can generally recall every shot from my most recent round or two with a catalog of much older shots of varying significance. There are occasions where I don't remember my round very well, even right after. It's usually due to an extremely poor performance causing me to just check out, or perhaps an especially slow round where I find I have to distract myself between shots to keep from losing my cool.

A whole bunch, both good and poor.

On the subject of staying present during a round, it’s the most recent shots that I try not to dwell on.

I’ll fall asleep replaying rounds in my head sometimes. I don’t always recall bad shots, but when I do it’s during my backswing...

I can remember certain shots over my lifetime (e.g., ace, a few memorable eagles and circus shots) and a few rounds (not every shot but more at the macro level).  Mostly I remember some incredible shots that I hit perfectly and knew it the moment the ball left the clubface.  I recall playing a practice round during college where I birdied five holes in a row, the longest putt about five feet and hit three flags on approach shots during the five hole birdie streak.  I remember in high school playing a friendly match against another school, I fired an even par 72 after making an 11 on the first hole.  Played the next 17 holes 7 under.  It was like an out of body experience.  I've made some Phil-like incredible circus pars recently and I'll remember those for a long time to come.

I can recall a few memorable shots per round.... but my buddy who is on the TaylorMade Payroll will remember every shot of all 4 players in a group.
At the end of Pro Ams we will be back enjoying post round drinks. When someone brings up a hole he can replay it back like it's on video.
Kind of freaky....

I can walk through every shot of my most recent round in my head, most of the rounds before that, and maybe 10-20 in my own highlight real.
