    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!

    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.
