Unfortunately I went through a period in July and September where I had 9 straight rounds in the 60s (a combined 40 under par) and it has had a devastating impact on my handicap with my group. They are making me play as a +2. I shot 71 on Thursday and got my ass handed to me.
Good thing is I am playing with house money for a while because that stretch was very lucrative.
But no my handicap is not accurate, I am a 0 handicap at best.
Thats what I meant, as opposed to truncating like the hundredths place in index calculation. If a handicap index comes out to 19.99999999, it still comes out to 19.9, but it doesn't work this way with course handicaps.
I recently played with a young guy that graduated from an SEC school, after a good college career. He really said college golf taught him a lot, and the whole college experience was invaluable. He said that, knowing what he knows now, he wouldn't pass up college. He also said everyone is different, and going pro might be a good choice for someone else.
If it is a USGA index it will update on the 1st and 15th. Not every USGA state or regional association has chosen to use GHIN as its calculation service, but every one DOES follow the USGA requirements.
