    Re: Playing to your handicap..how often?

    I've only been a member for this year and played 6 competition rounds so far - the first five were all over my handicap (although I was lucky to avoid a +0.1 on one of them because me and my playing partner were the only two to play on the Sunday and I got one more point than him!) and the most recent one I finally played exactly to my handicap. So not even had a cut yet!

    16 comps so far this season, 1 cut (a paltry 0.2) 2 x played to, 6 x buffer and 7 x 0.1.

    Fair to say I've yet to hit my purple patch this year

    but you have played to it half the time, buffers mean you played to it.

    Very true, just feel like I'm on the verge of shooting a couple of really low scores, hopefully sometime over the next couple of weeks, practice and consistency is the key

    I'm sure GM published an article on this a while back and if my memory serves me right, I think on average it was between 1 in 4-5 rounds.
