I do feel like I'm capable of getting into the 4's, but it's a realllly slow process. ;)
The way I've been playing and practicing, I fully expect to be back under 7 later this year.
Did it. 4 years and 9 months passed since I started playing golf. Exactly 5 years after visiting Florida and decided to pick up golf. Hcp 9.7. I am a single digit golfer now, proud and happy.
Oh and mine is official (but maybe not entirely correct because of the question I just asked?), because a lot of the tournaments I play in have handicap restrictions.
Yes, in the U.S. and Mexico anyway. If they're played under the Rules of Golf, then you post them. If your tournament scores are out of line, your index can be adjusted up or down slightly.
Because of my succes yesterday, I wanted to know my USGA handicap. My EGA handicap just went down from 10.3 to 9.7. My USGA handicap would be 9.5.
My USGA handicap was (before yesterday) allready below 10 (9.8). The USGA system adepts faster to changes than the EGA system.
Come October, you're gonna be giving me strokes if this keeps up!
Dropped another 2 tenths to get down to a 1.4... Been on a pretty steady trend this since May and hope to keep it going. Here's my H.I. history this summer.
4-1-14: 0.9 (This one was not real accurate. Didn't have 20 rounds submitted so it was heavily weighted by a couple low rounds.)
My goal is to be scratch by the end of 2015. Just need to keep things trending downwards.
I went from 3.6 to 3.4
I am happy and still trending in the right direction! My last 4 rounds are crappy, so I need to get my act together or my downward trend will come to an abrupt end. I've had to endure a few rainouts so I haven't played much golf this month. Through June 20th.....only 5 rounds played!! For me, this month has been a terrible month for golf. Hopefully I can at least get to 10 or 11 rounds by month end!!
July 1 Revision............I'm going from a 3.4 to a 3.2 and still moving in the right direction!!! I've played 6 rounds since the 21st and slowly making progress. PLEASE...let the trend continue.....................lol
I still need to play better golf, but I think I can get back into the 1's before year end! That's my realistic goal....I ended 2013 at 1.7...I want to get back to where I started.

I'm following a familiar downward trend just like 2013!! The only difference is it took me longer to peak in 2013 at a higher number....5.4. I started 2013 as a 1.6 and it was an uphill battle. I proved that it is possible to recover. The way I see it, I am way ahead of the curve in 2014!!
My July 1 revision will show 3.2.... I will have more of the same please...... keep it coming! (I hope)
What are the odds I can keep trending lower all year like 2013....aside from the .1 November hiccup? I want to get back to where I started... For you mild climate folks, GHIN closes down in the winter months......FYI.

Up 1 full point...... well I'm still not giving up on my goal for the year but I had better get my driver in the fairway more or else I'm hitting 3 wood off the tee for the remainder,or I figure out what is going wrong. For me it's got a lot to do with where I'm at at the top of the swing and if I'm in a good position then I'm going to hit the ball well over 90% of the time, maybe not in the middle good but in play with good distance. This game just perplexes the hell out of me cause just when I think I'm on the right path something decides to go haywire and when I try and get that fixed it causes me to start doing some other part wrong.
