  • Trying to Break 80 Club

    Well, a little bit of a stolen idea, but what about for all the guys trying to break 80? If you are just struggling and haven't shot in the 70's in a while or even if you have never done it before and you are almost there post your progress and let us know how you're doing!

    I myself am having probably one of my worst years of golf. I have only broken 80 twice this year. I'm just trying to get my stuff together and I should see scores dropping soon. I just HAVE to stay away from those double bogies.

      I've hit under 80 twice this year, but I am by no means consistent, which is what I'm really hoping for.

      I finally signed back up for GHIN though, so I'll have an easier time tracking it! Let's do this thing!

        I have shot 3 81's this year and in each case I can point to at least 4 shots that I lost due to either trying to be to cute around the green or 3 puts that shouldnt have been. I am so close and my golf coach is telling me that there is no reason why I should ever shoot in the 80's. For me it tends to be more mental than anything else. I am playing this afternoon and will keep everyone posted with my progress.

          In!

          I've shot an 82 twice and an 83 three times this year, just cannot break it! The 82 yesterday was a 44/38 and the front nine had two doubles in it...bonehead moves keep costing me. My putting has been on fire though with 29 putts yesterday, first time I've broken 30.

          I WILL get there.......I hope....lol

            I'm in as well! I've come close twice this year with an 82 and a 81. The 82 I had par on every hole on the back nine heading into the last two holes only to go double bogey, bogey for a 43-39 round.

              I'm in as well. This year's been off to a slow start for me, but I was close many times last year shooting 82s and 83s. It actually should have happened for me last year. I shot 80 in a round last September with 34 putts!

                Well right after making this thread I went out and shot 77 (see what did you shoot thread) It easily could have been 73 or 74. I was +3 after 14 and finished off bogey, bogey, bogey, double.

                  Wow, that would be a dream for me to shoot a 77.

                  I've NEVER broken 80 in my entire life. I've hit 80 about 8 times this year with tons of short game practice but I just can't get it.

                  It was my major goal this year, and I'm thinking of just giving up trying (not giving up golf, just the pressure to break 80). Congrats to those of you that can, that takes some serious game!

                        Was oh so close today. Shot 39 on the front and was in great shape going into 14. I hit an iron shot ob and took an double 7. Then missed a really short putt on 15. Ended 39-41; 80! SOOOOO CLOSE!

                          Well yesterday i shot an 83 with 5 doubles 2 bogeys and a birdie. It was on a new course that I hadn't been on and I just couldn't get it through my big head that I didn't have to hit driver on every hole. I shot a 44 on the front with 3 doubles and 2 bogeys and a 39 on the back with 2 doubles and a birdie. So if you take the stupidity out of it and those doubles were just bogeys not to mention the par 5 that I was 15 feet out on in 2 and 3 putted I would have shot a 78. So now I know that I should leave the ego in the bag and hit the appropriate club off the tee. This is the course that I am qualifying for the state amateur at in 2 weeks and I can hit 3 iron off of many of the tees and still be only 100 out so that is the plan.

                              I'm happy to be in this club, broke 90 for the first time last month which was my original goal to do by the end of summer.

                              I doubt I will ever break 80, I just don't have the time to put into it, sure do love trying though. I'm content being a bogey golfer as golf is just a fun hobby for me. Maybe someday everything will click and it will happen but I'm not worried about it.

                              Good luck though guys, pulling for ya!
