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'm down to 13.0, it's technically higher than the last time I updated my handicap here (12.6) but it's been trending down lately.

Steady at 6.7.

Includes 5 T scores.  Low score 76, high score 84, and an 80.2 average.  

I’m nothing if not consistent!

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.

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

Down to a 15.3 with this revision, but have recently had my 2 worst rounds of the year. So if I don't clean that up, I'll be trending in the bad direction lol

Down to 7.8 after the revision. 

Was a 9.6 On June 1st, and started with Evolvr on May 13th. 

Really happy with the direction my game is going right now.

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.

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

    • Interesting turns to this conversation.  I've read and reread the OP's post and it seems that he is asking a couple of things, for example in the original question, i.e. does shortening a 5i to 7i length have major changes on the club such as lie angle, swing weight, etc.  It begs to ask, do the manufacturers "build" clubs to have the same swing "feel", so that your swing feels the same whether its a 5i - 7i - 4h - PW, where the only real adjustment is knowing that the swing plane shifts slightly based on the varying club lengths which is what the latter part of the OP's post seemed to ask.  For me, I know that I am, based on the static fitment charts such as Ping's, that I need clubs that are 1/2" shorter w/standard lie.  In the same respect if I do take and put tape 1" down on the hand from the butt end and use that as my gauge for gripping the club, I swing straighter with more carry.  The clubs make better contact all around.   One thing I have wondered - does taking a 7i that is 36* loft and shortening the shaft by 1" which would make it in effect a 36* deg loft 9i?  (referencing Tommy Armour 845s Silver Scots here)  I know its still technically a 7i w/a shorter shaft.  To be honest I work off the loft of the irons (which is why I love the TA 845s as the lofts are stamped in the club face) rather than the number stamped in the bottom.   FYI - I have already been using drivers that have shafts shortened from 45.5 to 44.5 and can tell you I have a better sense of feel and control.   wt   
    • I agree.  I am using an Alta CB 55 (SR) and get excellent loft.  The. soft regular may be too flexible for you; go back to your fitter and tell them they got it wrong.  It does happen  
    • I started out with a bag of hand me downs, mostly MacGregor. I played them for almost 6 years, only changed my putter.   In 1975, I finally got my first set of new clubs.  I settled on on set from Wilson. I am very glad I got "basic" golf down before I bought them.  Not a lot of options from most brands. Blades only, steel shafts and not much on the basic market of items such as the 30 options I choose from for new grips.  Price was average for the time ($275.00). If I were new to golf today, I would go try out some clubs.  Then, I would do my best to find a most similar set on many of the sites that deal in used cubs. A phone class my even get you some good advice.
    • Never had a problem in ANY of my dealings with them  
    • I started with a set of Spalding clubs, full set from K-Mart for a few hundred dollars years and years ago, (couldn't afford anything else with family and a low salary at the time). I look at them now and wonder how I ever hit them but they got me hooked on the game. As my salary increased I was able to save up and buy better clubs. Now a days there are tons of 2nd hand clubs available, just look on Ebay. There probably were 2nd hand clubs available when I started but who knew. I agree with most above that you don't need the expensive clubs to start, hell you may not need them going forward either.  Talk to your local Pro Shop, they probably have a set for you or can get you hooked up with someone who does. I for example have probably three sets of clubs in my garage, (not including the Spaldings), that I would gladly part with just to clean my garage out. Just wish I knew someone who could put them to good use. I have 11 putters for example, who needs 11 putters!!
