My index continues to climb. It is now 9.5. My goal is to finish this year in single digits. Might be hard to do with the way I am playing. I need a couple of good rounds.

I just updated mine to 16.3, which is where it has been for the last year.

I have been unable to shake off the .3

but I also have had no time to practice this summer.

2013 I was at a 12, got it down to 10.5 by the end of 2014, and my last revision was 10.3.  I have shot some low scores for me this year (high 70's a few times), but those have been on easier courses (68 / 110 slope) and unfortunately I still throw in a high 80's or 90 sometimes.  I am trying to get under 10 but I need more consistency.  I have another 77 posted and hopefully I can get another couple of rounds in before the next revision

I keep telling SWMBO that I would be soo much a better golfer if I could just quit my job and practice and play lots of golf.

I could probably be a 5.

She is not quite on board as I would have hoped!

Isn't that the truth!

MY secret is that my wife loves to play golf as much as I do, so she understands the obsession.  We both play Saturday and Sunday, we each play at least one evening each week, and I go to the club and practice at least one night a week.  When we travel, we almost always plan for golf to be involved.  The worst thing about this whole arrangement is that I have no excuses!

My handicap has gone down to 9.37 but that is mainly a result of recent single digit over par scores pushing out early season double digit over par scores from the most recent 20 rounds list.

I'm kind of stuck in a scoring rut and recent lessons don't seem to be lower my scores. But it's just a game and it's good to get out while I still have my health.

As of this morning, I'm at 14.1. I wanted to get my handicap under 14 before the start of Fall semester, but it looks like I'll have to (hopefully) settle for trend index. Oh well. I'm still happy with this summer's improvements.

Well, I got the new HI this morning and I am now 9.7, the highest I have been in two years.

My 2015 golf goal is to keep my HI in single digits. This fall will be very interesting.

Revision was 12.8 today. Feel like I've been spinning in place since I started playing again this year. I've been between 12.0-12.9 for the last 30 revisions.

Down to 18.8 from 19.5.  With today's round (recorded after HI was established), it is trending even lower (18.4).  I am hoping my mini slump is over.

You are not leaving much room there, @dfreuter415 .  0.3 left.

    • The Footjoy rain pants are huge. Not a good fit in my opinion. 
    • The 80 I shot a few months ago has been knocked off my card, and my handicap currently sits at 16.3. However, my round from today (score post in a little bit) knocked the next-lowest round, 83, off as well, so it will probably skyrocket when I get my update tomorrow. Stay tuned.
    • Swing looks great.
    • Haven’t practiced in a while. Got into a little bit of a funk there. Been playing poorly lately; was going to pack away the clubs for the winter but I committed to an outing for some reason so I’m going to make the best of it 😃 First swings weren’t great. Might have figured out the main issue, though. Backswing stuff, inconsistent club head position at transition. Leads to lots of randomness. Started rehearsing A4 and then slowly bringing the club back to the same position, feeling that I’m set there (kind of a pause or slight delay), and then firing hard.   I posted the swings at real speed because I wanted to see the backswing at real speed. Feels slow to me but isn’t, and I’m not surprised there’s no actual pause at transition. Hit the ball really well like this though, which is promising.
    • Played 18 yesterday. Didn't score well due to some lapses in my priority piece on the course and associated penalty strokes. When I executed the swing I worked on in my lesson and recent practice sessions (mainly the takeaway/backswing), the ball was going where I aimed it. Short and mid irons were straight, maybe with a touch of fade or draw to them. Longer clubs were a little bit of a pull-fade flight. Of course, this is n=1 so who knows if this pattern holds over time. My miss was a cut/fade that starts on target, or maybe a bit pushed, and moves moderately to the right, and comes up short of typical distance. This miss is much more playable than the violent hooks, pull hooks, and shanks I was hitting previously. Overall I'm feeling optimistic that I can solidify these changes quickly, and hopefully get some decent rounds in before rainy season. Another thing my teacher asked me to try was not hovering the club at setup. She thinks it can help with my commitment to my target line/setup. I didn't take this advice as something that is right or wrong, but just a new approach to try and see if there is any improvement. I tend get fidgety with my feet when I am hovering the club prior to takeaway and start repositioning my feet and changing my alignment. I tried it in my round yesterday when I remembered it, but reverted back to hovering often.
