Hi Everyone, I started playing golf again after quitting back in 1975. When I quit in 1975, I could shoot in the 80's on most courses. (Patty Jewett at Colorado Springs.) Well, I started playing again two years ago because of being diagnosed with Parkinson's in my right hand. (Exercise is a key step in controlling this disease.) This year I joined the USGA and started recording my scores for my handicap. It seems I have a very high handicap compared to everyone else. Yet, when I play these "friends", I seem to hold my own and they seem "put out" that a 23 handicap player
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).
I dont understand how they work. Do you need one?
Hey, so i just started playing golf last summer (2014) at the age of 17. I started with just my grandpa's used knock off ping irons. By the end of the summer my goal was to break 90 and i did (89). Due to the Canadian weather i stopped playing at the end of September and just started again this past June. Since then until now i have got my handicap down to a 7.7. I just turned 18. Is it really good that in 9 months i have gotten down to a 7.7? This summer i played about 3 times a week and through September and October about once a week. Thanks, Jordan
