Re: Handicap Percentiles
How many times have you seen someone hit a tee shot OB, drop a ball near where it went OB, and hit that as their second (or even third) shot? If they post that score, it lowers their handicap below what it should be.
Exactly Shindig, There are so many "anti-baggers"-supposed single-digit handicaps. Guys who never putt anything under 4-5 feet (or count it if they miss), don't know the meaning of a provisional (or would never subject themselves to the trepidation of hitting 3...5...7 off the tee: the proverbial "f*ck it, I'll just drop one up there"). Generally these guys never show up for competitive play: state/city/provincial qualifying/amateurs etc. because they know deep down they're not legit. Or if they do, they're shocked to have posted "their worst round in years"! It is truly difficult to play with these types, especially when they make a point of saying they 'beat' you!! Legit single digits (ie rules of golf), by percentile-I'm thinking like 5-7% of all golfers, tops.
