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.

@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...

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

    • I think it’s even worse than what you describe.   I live in an area where people are cheering that there will be no mask mandates and they like to rub it in peoples faces.   They are literally trying to own people who are taking it seriously.   I mean, people are just disgusting.  I can’t even muster anything in me to feel remotely sorry for people like that, nor have anything to do with them.  
    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
    • Saw this interesting drill for encouraging hip rotation by deliberately opening the face in the downswing. Anyone tried this? I’d worried it will develop a bad habit of opening the face at the top of the swing.  
    • "With the delta variant taking off around the U.S., the federal government Tuesday updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new advice is to mask up indoors if you live in a place with "substantial" or "high" coronavirus transmission. (The guidance for people who are unvaccinated remains the same: Always mask up indoors.)" Check your county's transmission rates:   Do You Need To Wear A Mask Indoors Where You Live? Check This Map The CDC wants vaccinated people to wear masks indoors if the coronavirus is spreading widely where they live. Find out the level of virus transmission in your county. And, this was interesting: "A week after the crowds descended upon Provincetown, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Fourth of July -- the holiday President Joe Biden hoped would mark the nation's liberation from COVID-19 -- the manager of the Cape Cod beach town said he was aware of "a handful of positive COVID cases among folks" who spent time there. "We are in touch with the Health Department and Outer Cape Health Services and are closely monitoring the data," Alex Morse told reporters. The announcement wasn't unusual with roughly half of the country still unvaccinated and flare-ups of the virus popping up in various states. But within weeks, health officials seemed to be on to something much bigger. The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated. As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized. The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications. Before Provincetown, health officials had been operating under the assumption that it was extraordinarily rare for a vaccinated person to become infected with the virus. And if they did, they probably wouldn't end up passing it on to others, such as children too young to qualify for the vaccine or people who were medically vulnerable. The idea that vaccines halt transmission of the virus was largely behind the CDC's decision in May suggesting vaccinated people could safely go without their masks indoors and in crowds, even if others were unvaccinated. But that assumption had been based on studies of earlier versions of the virus. Delta was known for its "hyper-transmissibility," or as one former White House adviser put it "COVID on steroids." "What has changed is the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and Biden's chief medical adviser. When a vaccinated person gets infected with delta -- called a "breakthrough infection" -- "the level of virus in their nasopharynx is about 1,000 times higher than with the alpha variant," Fauci said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC. All indications now are that the Provincetown outbreak investigation is among the pieces of new evidence behind the CDC's decision to ask Americans to once again put on their masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated."   CDC mask decision followed stunning findings from Cape Cod beach outbreak - ABC News The CDC's mask decision followed stunning findings from a Cape Cod beach outbreak. The viral load of vaccinated beachgoers changed what we know about the delta variant.  
    • It would be interesting to know if they'd perform any differently with the belt device. As I wear a different wrist "health" tracking device the apple watch wouldn't work for me. Also, have you noticed any wear on the face of the sensors from rubbing on the bottom of your bag?
