Well the season is nearly over, so how did you do ? i went from 22 to 19 now back to 20
I've had the worst few years of my golfing life. Was regularly playing at 18 but the arrival of kids has seen my play twice in the last three years .......
Just been away to Spain and literally forgot how to play, was very embarrassing - in the Stableford competition we ran, I scored 6 points off a 22 handicap ....
Edit: You should try hitting the first tee shot on an avforums golf day to know what real jitters are Forget hitting the first ball of a Ryder Cup, that's easy compared to having Woody, Abbey, Signs, and the rest just waiting for you to fail.
To buck the trend of the thread so far.
Yes i did get my handicap down this year.
12.8 at the start and finished at 10.5
Fairly pleased with that as I've had zero time to practise this year due to being very busy at home and work.
Played really well towards the end of the season and kind of wished it had continued more!! Despite coming down to 10.5 I have had 4 rounds this year where i have been only 1 over par standing on the 11th tee and then had a shocker over the next 3 holes or so!! Last medal round of the year i was 1 over standing on the 11th tee and then went Triple bogie, Bogie, Quad Bogie!!!
Biggest difference for me this year has been hitting the ball much straighter off the tee. Got a couple of lessons at the start of the year and that has definitely worked well for me.
Never had an official handicap but been playing off 24/25 stableford for god knows how long. Have only managed to play about 6 times in the last 18 months, off to Spain tonight for a 3 round stag do in Almeria. They're letting me play off 28, but only because they're handicaps are 1 or 2 points higher than they should be
Living the dream! 3 rounds in the sun with plenty of alcohol! brilliant!
