We've been using an 80% handicap reduction in our big groups (and golf leagues) with some success for a few years. (BTW in our case we are not doing it to reduce the number of par 3 strokes specifically). I'm looking for some opinions on whether the new handicap system should allow us to go to full caps. I'm of the opinion that the changes should make the reduction less desirable. (less-enough for me anyways).
Assertion: Theoretically, a handicap index should work out to be similar, whether or not you play the forward or back tee box. I subscribe to the “Tee it Forward” concept. It makes sense in many ways-except perhaps your ego. But I have noticed that I tend to play and score better when I play a shorter course. (Eg: 5500 vs 6000 yds) This makes no sense to me. Either the rating for 5500 yds is too low or the rating for 6000 yds is too high. Discuss
