I put my scores from this year into a spreadsheet and calculated my "current" handicap. Many of these are combined 9 hole rounds from golf league.

I've been using an app called TheGrint. I just live track my scoring and it automatically gives me a USGA handicap as long as I have people to attest my scores.

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.

Keep up the great work.   It's exciting to see your improvement.  Congratulations.

Officially a 20.2, but I have barely played with another living sole in the month of July. Probably would merit a full point or two higher if I had.

Sort of a funny thing.

If I can find time to work on the things from a recent lesson I took on my driver and get that squared away, I'll probably crush my C flight in the Club Championship. 

If that doesn't happen, I probably shouldn't even enter the damn thing.

Just bumped up to 15.9 - from my best ever 15.5.  Trying to get to 15.0 or better by the end of the season.

Mine has dropped to 25.4 - down almost 6 from when I started a handicap last December. I'm hoping to get it down to 20 by this December which will be an overall of 11 strokes lower. I think it's an attainable goal for a person of my maturing years...

Got 2 good scores in this weekend, just in time for the revision.   Down from a lowest ever 8.7 to a new lowest ever 8.0.     My next two scores to drop off are bad scores as well, so there is a good chance to drop it again by the next revision.  

welp..   8.3.  was really hoping to drop into the 7s, but the last few rounds haven't been great.   hopefully get it this revision.

a bad run this past month has me at a 15.2 😡

for example, last Monday I had 3 birdies on the front nine and three 7’s on the back nine.

I cannot seem to get many rounds in. Since I got back into golf this year, I just get 9 hole rounds here and there because I seem to be working on drills all of the time. I have played a couple of scrambles, but that's about it. Handicap is showing 7.6 but that is only like 3 rounds posted... I'm more like a 10 or so at the moment

You can post nine-hole rounds. In fact, you're required/supposed to.

Not saying you are but your post implies you may not be?

Oh, I do. What my post meant is that I only have time for 9 hole rounds here and there. With a small amount of 9 hole rounds that have to be combined for it to show on my handicap scores, it takes me 2 rounds to get a score posted...hopefully that makes sense. But yeah, if I play, I post no matter what. I check and make sure Jacob posts his after every round.

Sorry if that post sounded confusing

My last revision brought me down to a 9.5, but if you seen me practicing yesterday I couldn't pay you enough to believe it.  Just a bad day at the range/course.

I hear you on that. I'm making some swing changes and my range days will be great one day and horrible the next

    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
