Was wondering what is the biggest difference in scores you have posted in consecutive rounds. The reason being I shot my best ever score breaking 90 for the first time scoring 88 (handicap 23) last Weds, I then shot 106 on Sunday 18 strokes worse ! My front 9 in both rounds was 42 compared to 56. Are these big differences common in high handicappers or do you lower handicappers suffer from this as well ?

Interesting question. Not 100% sure but pretty certain I shot in the mid 80's on the Friday before a club championship and shot something like a 95 in the 1st round. Don't you hate it when you have practiced hard and everything feels good and you go out and it feels as useless as a labour canvasser in Crewe (bit of political comment - my name's Ben Elton goodnight)

I think I must play a different game to most of the GMfus.

I can't remember playing under 80 or over 90 this millenium....

18 strokes worse (than my h'cap)....that would mean playing to 100-ish......scary....

:cool:

One word, consistency. Thats why my Handicaps 22...i have none. I didn't score a 2 in that stableford comp they were all 3's, 1's and n/r's (7 n/r's to be precise)...really frustraiting.

Big differences are common, especially after a good round, when you think you have the game sussed. Already this year I've had a 13 shot difference (67 then 80) and a 12 shot difference (73 then 85) in consecutive rounds. Not unusual for me to have a 9 shot difference on consecutive days, like this weekend (85 then 76). It's all part of the joy of the game !

Yep, it happens all the time. Before the last medal, I shot 76, 78, 80 during the week, and then 92 92 in the spring meeting at the weekend.

also threw in a 50 on a par 28 academy course where my girlfriend beat me without giving her shots never lived it down not as bad as when she out drove me 3 times last weekend off the same tees, the pain of playing with your other half
