If said guy plays the same in his casual rounds as tourney rounds then you get: 79, **79T**, 80, **80T**, 80, **80T**, 78, **78T**, 79, **79T**, 79, **79T**, 80, **80T**, 80, **80T**, 78, **78T**, 79, **79T**

I don't even have to go any further with the math than that. The best ten are still the exact same ten.

What a f**king dumbass! OK, lets try this again ... (For fun, let's say the course is a 72.0/130)

Golfer Z:** ** 84, **79T**, 85, **80T**, 83, **80T**, 85, **78T**, 84, **79T**, 84, **79T**, 85, **80T**, 83, **80T**, 85, **78T**, 84, **79T**.

Golfer X:** 79**, **79T**, 80, 80T, 80, 80T, **78**, **78T**, **79**, **79T**, 79, 79T, 80, 80T, 80, 80T, **78**, **78T**, **79**, **79T**

Golfer Z's handicap is 5.9. Golfer X's handicap is 5.4.

On my hypothetical course, his course handicap would be 1 stroke higher if he played all of his casual rounds the same as his tournament rounds. I guess a case could be made for him being a sandbagger ... albeit a teeny tiny one.

I would still vote no based on OP's info. I believe the key is that he is still trying ... he's not doing anything malicious or deceptive.
