    Results/stories. Itís been a pretty decent season. Started on 8.1, css dependant I might be down to 6.9 after today. 1.6 in cuts, 4x 0.1 back. Rest buffer, from around 18 qualifiers. Won nothing tho!

    All done now until April.

    Re: End of season handicap results/ stories/ excuses.

    Started at 14.0 and currently 14.0

    A win and a second so can't say the season has been a disaster. A hospital stay in February and being unable to play much for a few weeks wiped a lot of winter work. Swing flaws (well discussed on here) have held me back but my pitching and sand play has come on leaps and bounds. I have no excuses, and I it is what it is and so we start again over the winter with the stuff from my GM lesson, hope not to be in hospital for a third February running and hit the ground running.

    Re: End of season handicap results/ stories/ excuses.

    Started season at 17.8 my highest in 40 years. Managed a few 2nd places at away comps. So got back down to 15.4 . But then up, down, up whoosh up, up + ended the season at 16.5, down 1.3 overall , but should've done better.

    Bad back is my excuse, especially my bad back 9.

    Re: End of season handicap results/ stories/ excuses.

    At the start of the year I had set two targets. Get down to 12 and try and break 80 in a medal.

    After missing a big chunk of the summer, by the time we were in August, I had crept back up to 17 and struggled to break 90.

    However the last month has seen my game come on a fair bit and in the final medal today I shot 80 and got cut down to 13 flat.

    Didnít quite achieve my two targets but can not believe how close I got.
