Forum Profile Handicap Indices....

Took a huge jump this month, from 5.4 to 6.5. I hit about a 2 month hot streak earlier this summer, and have cooled off since. The good news is that I don't think my handicap will get much higher than this. I'll probably be back down into the 5s in May or June next year.

I’ve dropped my handicap from a 5.0 at the beginning of this year to a 3.3 with tournament golf (crazy, I know)! This weekend at Virtues Golf Club I shot 81 which had me tied for 2nd, 3 strokes back o

Down to a 2.7 thanks to some good tournament scores recently. In fact 9 of the 10 scores that count for my handicap have the tournament "T" beside them.

With my 4.1 and 2.5 differentials added in from this past weekend my handicap dropped from 4.0 to the lowest it's ever been, 3.5.

I floated between a 9 and 10 all year, closed out the season at 9.6.

We’ll see if I get the chance to play & practice a little more next season.  Although all I really care is that it’s low enough to give the state am another go.

Mine is my official USGA HI, I keep one because it’s required in my league. It’s actually a little lower now, but I don’t update my info here every time my HI changes. I expect it will be worse every Spring and lower every Fall anyway.

Up to 9.3 from 8.7 - played my first round last week since November so I hope things will improve in time as I get back into the Daily 5min Challenge and I become intentional about a pre-shot/post-shot routine

Started the year at 21. Currently sitting at 22.4 :/. I really feel like a much better golfer than my handicap indicates. I guess time will tell.

Up to 9.7

I think I've only played a couple of times since last revision, but replaced some upper 70's/low 80's with low 90's.  Oh well.

Association people didn't input my score from Saturday or I'd probably have been up a couple ticks. Unchanged from last year, so far.

Due to injuries Sept. 28, I have only posted two scores and those were in April 18. BUT happily, my GHIN is now lower at 24.8. Will change my profile next. Best, Marv

I have yet to renew my GHIN. I am a little irritated at the direction my association is going. My Game Golf handicap is +1.6 so I guess I will go with that for now until I am finally forced back to GHIN.

handicap has dropped from 23.1 to 22.4. I am playing again next week at my home course, so If I can put together a decent round (not even a great one) I can drop my handicap below 22 again for the first time since January.

Not official as not a member anywhere to put in scores. I use Golf Shot app to calculate, recently having set it to use the US system, which I thought was a better view of where my game was at a point in time.

Im having some lessons now, and my Pro is going to help me get an official Spanish Fed Handicap, then I need to find some tournaments to play in to put in some real scores. I am aiming at playing in a Amateur Handicap tour event at the end of the year, and would like to have some history of rounds played before I go to that, so I can go in and compete at my fair level handicap. I want to win, I am going with all thoughts of winning, but especially to do that with a fair assessment of myself.

Finished last year at 15.4 down from 28. 

 

Opened up this year with my first medal in the 70s with a 76 (five over). A lovely cut off 3.0 down to 12.4.

That was my target for the end of the year so free rolling now all season and hopefully get a few more nice finishes.

Up to 6.7 today. That should be as high as it gets for a while, but we'll see. I've been consistently okay this year so far, and I feel like I'm really close to doing some really good stuff on the course. We will see.

    • Phone. I tried the Apple watch for a while but didn’t like it, it was missing or double registering. I just saw a press release from arccos today saying that they updated the watch tracking and it’s out of beta. I’d be interested in hearing if others have tried that yet.
    • Just curious - are using a phone or the Caddy Link belt device?
    • Olympic athletes are in a different world.
    • I ended up making an appointment at PGATSS and got fit in their tour studio. Overall it was a good experience. It wasn’t as magical and data driven as seen on TXG videos appear to be, but I think I came out of it with what I wanted. I was trying to be brand agnostic, but did mention that I would buy the Ping 425 Max if I just bought off the rack. I tried maybe 3 different heads, but we primarily focused on that driver. I wasn't hitting well at all that day. But then again I don’t have a consistent driver swing. I warmed up with my flimsy Callaway Strata driver, and he asked if that was my actual swing. He said my swing speed was 80. Swinging slow and in the middle of my stance is the only way I can hit it straight, and it goes super high for about 220 and stops. If I put the ball in the front on my stance I hook it way left. Anyways when I actually swing for real, I was averaging 100-105 swing speed.  Ultimately I ended up getting a 9* Ping 425 Max with a 65g Ping Tour Stiff shaft, turned down to an 8* with the weight set to fade. At first I was a little skeptical, because I didn’t perform well there. I was still hitting it to the left. He told me I just needed some practice with it. After a few rounds last week, I’m very happy with it. I’ve been averaging about 275 with it. I’ve even hit a few 290 according to my Garmin watch! I’m so happy to have my first real driver!
    • I think that the current prices of gold and platinum that they use are reflected in the price. Seriously - what sort of idiot would pay these prices? In @billchao's post for two fairway woods I was wondering where the iron set was.  People are paying for a shafting, not shafts. Geez.
