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

Same here, taking lessons right now and working on changes, everyday is an adventure.

@NatalieB is busy today packing for a trip so I’ll brag for her. She’s down to a 2.4, again almost entirely with “T” scores.

Well deserved bragging rights. Congrets 🚀

As a 7, I moved to Spain/Andalusia and it humbled me to 10-11. But I’m finally back to 9.5 now.

May be kinda dumb to post about such a small move but I am now a 19.5 instead of a 19.6. The cool thing is even if its .1 stroke its the lowest I have officially been. 12 rounds in a row under 100. I think I can reasonably get down to a 17 or so by the end of the year. Not gonna try to force it, just keep playing solid golf and let the chips fall where they may.

Dropped down to a 9.6 today, officially establishing my position as what I can only imagine is the worst single digit in the world.

No change at 12.8. Two bad rounds in VA knocked off two bad rounds from last year. Going up next review unless I make some magic happen. Next round coming off was my best round last year and second best differential on the card.

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!  

Sounds eerily familiar high 84, low 77 avg 80.2 only 1 T score though

At 9.2 now, trending to 9.0.  Lessons have been helping, next on the list, hands farther in front of club at impact.

This morning, I sent in a request to GHIN (and my club) to deactivate and delete my account.  I will no longer be posting scores for a handicap.  I came to the realization this past weekend that scores and handicaps were ruining my enjoyment of the game.  I never compete, nor play for money - so my handicap was useless anyway.  I also deleted my Golfshot app.  Going to go back to the old school method of writing my scores in pencil on a scorecard, then throwing it in the trash after the round.  I hope that this will allow me to find joy in the game, as I would like to be able to continue playing.  I have grown tired of being upset with myself almost every time I play.  If I cannot figure out how to have fun regardless of the outcome - I'm going to start searching for a new hobby next year...

Woohoo!! Finally got a big decrease in the handicap! After another good month of Golf I am down to 18.7 (from 19.5)! Broke 90 more times this year then I have the rest of my entire golfing life. I’m just gonna keep working at it!

Down to a 6.9 after a very solid 75 last weekend. My game has made a ton of progress this year between visiting Erik up in Erie, a couple months of Evolvr coaching, and now a couple month of some in person coaching. I'm really happy with how my game has evolved this season.

Somewhat replying to the OP. I am not part of any club, league, or any other governing body so I just keep mine in a ODS file that I update after each round. I use the actual calculations and take ESC into account as well. This is the first year that I have played more than one round since I was in my teens (31 now), and the first year ever taking it seriously. Sitting at 19.3, but hoping that next year I can finish it out below 15 for sure.

It’s worth mentioning that you don’t have to be a member of a club or any other “governing body” in order to maintain a handicap.
 

Go online to your state Golf Association, and you should be able to sign up for a GHIN handicap through them. The cost should be something in the neighborhood of $25-$30 per year.
 

From there you will be able to manage your handicap via a simple app on your phone…

Spend 30 bucks or spend 15 seconda after each round? I'll just keep doing it for myself

    • Looks like the moderna inc vaccine is entering final testing the end of this month. 30,000 person trial. Very promising! First COVID-19 vaccine tested in US poised for final testing The first COVID-19 vaccine tested in the U.S. revved up people’s immune systems just the way...  
    • I figured it is probably about time I start videoing my putting stroke. I really have no idea what to look for when it comes to putting. The only thing I might see is to try moving my elbows slightly further apart (like 4-5 inches). When it comes to the putting grip, should the putter be running through both lifelines? For quite some time I had the trail hand heel pad as the main point of contact for that hand, but I've recently switched to having the putter run through that hand's lifeline instead. Practice ratios for the near future are going to move towards something like 55/25/20. I really need to work on my putting.     On some other notes: I've been jealous of @billchao's and other similar outdoor net setups for quite some time. I decided on a few purchases to set myself up with a solid area to practice the full swing at home. This will make getting a lot of video so much easier mainly because the range I've been frequenting just isn't conducive to it. This will be great timing for it as well since I'll be able to get a ton of reps / practice in after the Chautauqua event with @iacas. Upgrading from my mixed 710 AP1 / 712 AP2 set to some 716 AP2's. I essentially paid nothing for them after getting rid of these two iron sets.
    • Day 217 Kept working on the hip rotation with some 9-3 swings with LW/SW. Decided today was the day to see how it translates to a longer club. Used 3W because I'm afraid to hit driver off the mat in my yard. Hit 15 balls and used the Mevo get some ball flight data. No impact tape, but didn't get any extreme toe or heel vibrations/feels in my hands. Contact was pretty solid, hit 2 balls a touch thin, and 2 balls a touch fat. Start line was good for 12/15, 2 balls were pulled and started too far left, 1 ball was a push. Swing speed, ball speed, carry, and spin were in the ballpark for what I expect, so overall pretty happy with progress.
    • Interesting.  So in theory, if you tap down the line of your putt so that your ball tracks that line, is it still allowed?  Just a hypothetical question. I thought I read somewhere that some pro left a water hose on a practice green so that it forms imperceptible track to the hole and bet on other pros during putting practice.  Could be just an urban myth.
    • Never said SARS and MERS were eradicated.  They have been contained and limited.  As for vaccines, there are many diseases where vaccines are not possible. If COVID mutates readily, as some data seem to indicate, vaccine will have to be like flu vaccine, where you try to anticipate the strain for the coming year.  Since flu vaccines are often only effective 30-40%, it may be similar with COVID.
