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

    Started at 10, finished there too. Only one small cut and a crazy buffer %, ran out of season really. I was away so much (both work and for fun) that my season never really got going until September. I do feel like I've reached a higher level though so I'm excited to see what 2018 brings.

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

    Started at 15.2, dropped to 14. Only had two 0.1's so been really consistent without having a stand-out round. Signed up for the Winter performance package with our pro so hoping to make some good changes over the winter and have a good season next season.

    I also finished 2nd on count back in the club championship handicap, and numerous other 2nds in weekly medal and stablefords!

    So go back to October 2016 and say YES this was my year!

    That is unreal! Amazing Achievement! May I ask how old you are? and what did you during the winter on the range? Any specific drills or instruction?

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

    Last handicap counter of the season yesterday, and it ended as the season began with a .1 so I've finished on 11.6/12 for the year; down 0.9 from season start, which in the grand scheme of things is ok despite getting to 10.7 at one point.

    Played some good stuff this year, but a lot more bad stuff... the last 6-8 weeks saw my form fall off a cliff; but still 'C' class champion, runner-up twice in other comps, 3rd in the handicap Order of Merit and a top-20 in the scratch Order Of Merit so can't grumble with this year's work.

    No excuses, just didn't put enough practise in.

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

    mines going to sound pathetic compared to many on here but progress is progress

    started off 28 (been playing years but starting to get proper serious)

    ive finished on gamegolf 26.5 and in my societies one of them im off 27 the rest 28 at the moment due to not playing well in some events

    I however have won the past 2 society events I have played

    societies I find hard to get cut in because you have to play well on day but gamegolf tracks the lot so gamegolf started me off at 30 this year because it lets you go above 28 so to get to 26.5 I think is good progress

    considering we just had a baby in june its good that ive managed to keep golf up and improved...

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

    This is my first year of club membership. Started on 24, and I'm now 22.9. I think I've only played about 9 competitions though (got another one this Sunday) as I like to play different courses with my mates and so on. So I'm just glad it's gone in the right direction really. I'm playing well enough to get another cut this weekend, but anything can happen on the day of course. I've only actually been cut once, but it was a 1.6 cut since I was four shots under handicap that day and won a medal comp.
