I think I like the term *bandit* - that is what I will now call my sandbagging playing partners........

Righto, so I saw the handicap chap on Saturday and said not to worry about getting my handicap cut for the time being. The reason is that everyone in the club is in the same boat in that there have been very few qualifying events this year so far because of the weather (the course is on a flood plain) and that I should just enjoy my golf and eventually my handicap will come down naturally.

Also, my partner and I won our match on Thursday night coming back from being three down after three holes to win 2 and 1 :)

Regards

Well, you've done the decent thing by raising the issue, so your conscience can be clear. If I were you I'd now take full advantage by entering any available competition in which you get your full handicap allowance. There won't be many times in your golfing career when you can be confident of shooting net sub-par rounds.

 

And especially matchplay competitions. You'll be tough to beat when half the field has to give you shots on nine or ten holes!
