My pattern isn’t so much a roller coaster as it is learning from mistakes and adjusting to how I’m playing that particular day. Over the course of a round I’ll discover which parts of my game are on and which aren’t and make future shot selection accordingly. I almost always shoot a better 2nd round than First round. Same goes if I play two casual rounds back to back. Most of my best scores have come after having already played a round.

I feel you on that one, when it rains it pours! At least it clumps all the suck together though, that means I can feel good about myself *most* of the time haha

This reminds me of something I heard Sexton say on one of the recent Jomez tourneys that I’ve been trying to implement. Something along the lines of “sometimes it’s a chump move to try and put it under the basket” and then followed it up with what you’re saying. Sometimes you need to take the smarter/easier shot to put it 20’ away, and trust your putting to finish the job.

One of the best ways to lower your score is to always be thinking critically about how the shot your about to take will set you up for the next shot.

Sometimes it’s better to take a low risk shot for good position than to take a high risk shot for great position.

I usually follow a +11 with a +1 because I have zero time to practice/warm up as a tourney volunteer.
