So the big question I have:

At what point do you consider somebody to be:
a) Very consistent at their handicap;
b) Average consistency for their handicap; or
c) Inconsistent for their handicap?

Dent, look at your GHIN page, take the 10 "unused scores", look at the diff. on the right (which calculates the round in accordance with rating/slope), and find the average. Then multiply by 0.96.

Ah: my Anti Handicap is 11 Thanks Sandman! As far as your question, do you mean for us to give you a handicap number in which I think someone is consistent etc?

I'm so glad you posted that. I was starting to think I was the only one that had an anti-handicap that was that high!!

Index: 0.3 Anti-Index: 6.9 Turns out my anti-handicap went down four or five points as of this last revision (today). I guess that is a good thing...

I think most anti-handicaps are supposed to be high, because its taking your worse scores. I wouldn't worry about it being Six Strokes over your handicap :P

No Dent, I mean at what point would the differential be consistent?

Your handicap is the same as mine, but you're anti-handicap is much better than my anti-handicap. I would interpret that as you being a more consistent player at your handicap (for whatever reason, maybe you play the same course frequently while I do not have a home course, maybe you have been playing at a 7 longer than I have, etc...).

And yes, your anti-handicap should be higher than your regular handicap. But how much higher? My uncle is a 7 handicap, and regularly kicks my ass, so I calculated his antihandicap and it is only a stroke worse than his handicap. So when he plays, he is always right at his handicap. But when I play, my good rounds are at my handicap, but my bad rounds can get pretty ugly.

1. 2.5
2. 5.2
3. 2 or 3 years.
4. Not much change. Depending on the time of year it ranges from 0.5 to 3.0.

The consistency question is tough and is highly dependent on both the player "streakiness" and their handicap level.

I do not have a home course anymore either. I have actually only been around a Seven for about 2 months. It takes me a very long time to get my handicap down. So basically your Anti-Handicap is your level of consistency?

I am from Australia and so I don't actually have an anti-handicap but I used your formula and I calculated that my handicap would be 5.8 and my anti-handicap would be 10.4.

How many people out there are "good" handicaps vs. your 10 lowest scores and your 10 highest scores look like they were played by different species of golfers?

Here are mine.

My index is 10.9 for now, but I wish that I didn't have a 20 stroke range between my highest and lowest!!!

It really does speak more to potential than average round!

Just curious how many people can keep it tight vs. all over the place like me.

Darn chart didn't show up well, but my low score is 78 and my high score is 97!!!

##### Share on other sites

Mine looks similar. Honestly, yours didn't look that bad except for a couple of big scores. Those will happen to us.

##### Share on other sites

Look up anti-handicap.

##### Share on other sites

1) Handicap Index: 11.2
2) Anti-Handicap: 17.8
3) Just since the last revision.
4) Ended last season at this exact number (11.2). Earlier this year I was up to a 12.8, now I've gone down the last 3 revisions back to 11.2.

5 scores from earlier this year from a golf trip to MB, all in the 90's. They are killing my anti-handicap! LOL

##### Share on other sites

Right now I'm a 0.9 and a 3.2.

##### Share on other sites

Right now I am a 11.2 and my AGHIN is a 14.7.

##### Share on other sites

Interesting.

So my handicap is 10.8

my anti-handicap is 17.1.

That's way too big of a difference for me. I look forward to the time where there ar just 1-2 strokes difference between the two (as long as it's not like 2.5 and 2.7 NOT 25 and 27 LOL)

• In addition to what other have posted, if it were me, I would trade one of those 9 hole rounds for time on the practice putting green.  I'd work on reads, and speeds for the distances required. I would also work on hitting the line of my putt by hitting straight putts.  Also since GIRs are low, in addition to working on hitting closer approach shots, I would also work on chips, and pitches to give up shorter, first putts. Approaches, pitches, and chips also require reads of the green to some extent.
• I’ve been getting lessons from what I think are good instructors, using video, practicing diligently. The defect is me. Body is not going to hold up forever either. This season was not fun at all. I dunno. It’s just not fun anymore. I’ll play but I’m don’t see how that’s going to help.
• I'll be honest here and say I never consider any of my good drives "pured" simply because they're by accident 😅
• I feel good if I "pure" 4 shots per round.  Maybe one drive, two approach shots and one putt.  I go by the Ben Hogan rule... even your bad shots should be serviceable.  And those damned pure shots, that's what brings me back.
• I just want to point out, for the people who have been tagging and quoting @paininthenuts, that member is banned and will not be able to respond.  I had an eagle putt today that I left 5' short. Still waiting on my first eagle.
