Damn I've been knocking at the door for some time but haven't crossed that threshhold yet. I've had at least a dozen rounds in the 80s in the last year. My closest attempts: I shot an 84 at Angel Park in Vegas and had 3 doubles in the round and a tripled on 18. Shot an 83 at Santa Anita in L.A. and missed 6 or 7 par putts (most in the 10 - 30 foot range). Shot an 82 at Alhamba in CA and 3-putted TWO eagle putts. But my worst one ever: I shot an 81 at Eastmoreland in Portland, and I would have had a 79 but I hit a TC Chen. I SO didn't want to count it but hey, it fucking happened and it has to fucking count god damn it.
Just for reference, a TC Chen is when you hit the ball twice on one swing. Usually it's from a bunker shot or heavy rough lie. Your follow-through accidentally hits the ball again. Technically, it's a one shot penalty, BUT you've hit the ball twice already, so it is 3 shots on one swing. Damn that still burns me up!
Anyone have a memorable first time they broke 80?
