I'm going to try to listen to that podcast in the next few days. Looking forward to it. The article I posted is also written by Chris Palmer.
Yea, I had one drink circa 2020 and pretty quickly went into hangover symptoms. It lasted only like thirty minutes, but it was definitely not fun. That's the only time I've ever had a drink on the diet.
yea, that was mentioned in the podcast above. You have to be VERY careful when on in a ketogenic state and drinking. Alcohol will actually hit you harder. Like, your normal amount in an evening will be like you drank 3-4x that amount in how you will feel.
The USGA will suggest certain handicap reductions, in large part because higher handicappers have an easier time shooting -6 or something (net) than a low handicapper.
While any one low handicapper has a slight edge in beating any one high handicapper, 100 low handicappers will generally win less than 50% of the events if there are also 100 high handicappers. Especially at 100% handicaps.
