I was cruising some golf forums and landed on a great topic. Someone posted that they were chatting with some friends and they were all reliving their best round of golf they’ve ever played (slightly trying to one up each other).
Well, it got me thinking about my best round (well, favorite round)… At the time, with the 2018 British Open coming up. I would have to say, Scotland, Carnoustie, shooting a birdie on the 14th hole (best known as “Spectacles” thanks to the enormously deep bunkers protecting the hole). It was a blind second shot over the bunkers and I was truthfully more interested in snapping a picture in the bunkers to prove I’d been and played there. We snapped a few pictures (with the artillery range next door booming) only to come over the mound and in view of the green to see my ball about 10 feet from the hole. Birdie opportunity! Our caddie who happened to have been a club champ there a solid 10 years in his tenure gave me a line, a simple stroke and it swished into the hole. Not much tops that moment.
So, what was it that made your best round your best round? Is there something that stands out the most – a moment, a score, a shot, or who you were playing with? Share your story in the comments below!
