Under handicap

9 posts in this topic

I am a 12.7 shot a 72 yesterday on a slope 123 par 72 course. Will this lower my hc an unfair amount if it's posted. I don't want to sandbag but feel this score was a miracle.

Nice round, you should definitely post it.  What was the course rating?  Your handicap is suppose to reflect your POTENTIAL.  This score will likely lower your handicap by about a shot compared to what it would be had you shot 83.  As you are capable of shooting a 72, it is not unfair for you to be an 11 HC.

You shot it, post it. Now, congratulations and don't sell yourself short. You now know what you're capable of....go ahead and use that knowledge and confidence to take your game to the next level! :-)

Good round!!!

I've found that once barriers are broken (no matter if it's a "miracle" or not) it's easier to get there again. Not just in golf but in anything.

Unless you are Bob Beamon.

You better post it if anyone knows you shot it.  Actually you should post it even if no one knows.  Only 20 more rounds and your HC can jump back up a point...LOL.   I've had a few really low rounds in the past that I just watched get lower and lower on my past 20......kinda sad to see them drop off.  Congrats by the way.

When I shot my PB 73, I was a 16 handicap.  It was posted, as was the next day's 78, because they were the third and fourth rounds of the club championship that year.  If it's a miracle, then it will be there to bug you until you shoot 20 more rounds, but it should properly be on the list.

It happens to everyone so it is not as much as a miracle you think it is .   Some plays consistently within small range.   Others score 100 one day and 82 the next.
