With my first full month complete, while getting back into the game, using 15 scores, my handicap right now is 13. I'm using one of those auto handicap websites, so accuracy might be suspect. After my first 5 scores I was at a 18. After 10 scores, I was at 15. So it is coming down. The 13, although I am happy with it, is still 5 strokes higher than when I had to leave the game a few years back. Don't know if I will ever get back to single digits, and I know to go lower than 13 will be tougher than it was getting to that number. However, the challenge to play better is a great motivator for me. My next goal will be to get down to a 10. With continued practice, and play I'm pretty sure it's achievable with in the next few months. If not, I will still be golfing and having a good time.
