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).
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 can match them. Am I missing something here? I know of two players with a 10 handicap and I play against them very evenly. (Even won 50 cents last time I played them. 🙂 ) Comments? Retired Old Man
I dont understand how they work. Do you need one?
