Me and my best friend are about 10-15 apart in the handicap. At the end of last year I was playing to around a 13 ( I'm not quite to that form yet) and my friend plays to almost a 30. Today he beat me straight up by one stroke. (Technically he played an OB as lateral on #8, but I played so bad that he should have had a chance to beat me.)
Anyone have a huge differential that they overcame or gave away for that matter. I shot an 84 one time playing off about a 28-30 so it is possible for these kind of things to happen.
