First post Love the optimism that the results of the poll shows. Consistently looking to improve and sharpen my game makes me feel like I'll always continue to get better, but like everyone that plays this great game there are certainly days or weeks where it's not as easy to stay optimistic. Heading into the off-season now, being from Canada, however I started tracking my handicap this summer for the first time and was surprised to see the index I ended up with at the end of the year....pleasantly surprised. When you guys/gals first decided to track your handicap did it take you by surprise? For better or worse?
