I stumbled on this site over the weekend and after a good look round thought that I would join you.
I have played the game sporadically for quite a few years, but started to take it seriously in 20011. I got my handicap down to 16 in the first year and then to 12.2 last year. I had hoped to be in single figures this summer but so far I have slipped back to 12.9. With only a couple more qualifying competitions left this season it looks like I have missed the chance this year. I did take a few months off in the depths of last winter, but I plan to play right through this one, weather permitting.
