What Is Your Anti-Handicap?

At what spread does an Anti-HC start letting one know that one is inconsistent?

My current HC is 34.5 and my Anti HC is 42.8 so a spread of 8.3.

PT - Are you still affiliated with Scorecard, @iacas ?

No. I don't think it's even available for sale anymore.

I think the actual spread is determined by the handicap you have. The problem is that you can't say "a handicap spread the same size as your handicap" or anything because handicaps don't "end" (or start) at zero.

So, to take a stab at your other question, if your anti-handicap is 9 for a double-digit handicapper, or 4.5 for a single-digit handicapper, you're inconsistent. Just off the top of my head. I'm sure if I think about it I'll adjust quite a bit.

1. Handicap: 1.1
2. Anti-handicap: 4.2
3. How long: This year
4. Improvements: Started the season around a 2.0, so I've dropped nearly a stroke and have been trending downward for several revisions.

Handicap 4.7

Anti-Handicap 9.8

All scores this year.  I have definitely been somewhat inconsistent.  The Anti is fueled by two bad rounds (85+) in Palm Springs, with absolutely no excuses, as well as by 85-84 for the two-day outing we had in the cold and snow early in April (reasonable).

My HC is 17.3

My Anti-HC is 21.4

Difference of 4.1

I've been holding steady at around 17-17.6 HC for the past 8 months or so. Considering I don't play through the winter it's more like 5 months of active golf.

Anti handicap? Interesting. I just did the computations. My AH is 12. 8, as apposed to my regular 9.9. 

I guess I need to quit playing on those bad weather, windy days.  :whistle:

Actually, the difference between the two is pretty small, only 2.9, indicating pretty good consistency.  Here's a quote from a Golf Digest article that I found on Dean Knuth's website, www.popeofslope.com

Quote

The difference between your Handicap Index and your anti-handicap measures your consistency. Subtract your Handicap Index from your anti-handicap. If the number is 5 or less, consider yourself steady. If it's 15 or more, you should be looking for a more consistent partner.

Based on the May 1 revision. 

Handicap is 7.2. Anti Cap is 10.0. It's probably the closest spread I've had in awhile. Although my game is still really erratic shot-to-shot, my overall scoring has been pretty steady. My worst score in the last 20 is an 88. 

So, my handicap is creeping back up, but my anti-cap is creeping down. Hmmmm... wondering if I could call that progress?

Just do what most political "analysts" do, choose which statistic you want to  use, to come to whatever conclusion you'd prefer.

Current HCP is 16.1 with an Anti HCP of 23.1, 7 stroke difference.  Scores go back to June 2015 with my best stretch in July and some really bad numbers in October when the wheels seemed to fall off.  The scoring so far this season has been a little  more consistent so hoping to reduce all 3 this year.
