    sharpens the senses.
    What odds does playing off the whites matter, surely the relative css would account for that.

    Re: Are you embarrassed by your handicap??

    Couple of years back maybe, but now I couldn't give a hoot, I'm off 20 (19.6) and I don't care if it goes up or down. I learned not to let such a insignificant little number affect my game or enjoyment.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    Re: Are you embarrassed by your handicap??

    Frustrated with mine as I know I can play so much better but not having membership and playing once every 4-6 weeks doesnít help.

    when it does click into place I do get embarrassed being off 15

    Frustrated mostly. Vary rarely do I manage to keep a blob or two off the card. Even when scoring decent points in bounce games.

    Hit my fair share of pars, usually more than most of my mates off similar and slightly lower handicaps. Just canít seem to concentrate for 18 holes.
    My own H4H. Challenge. Get to 16 or pop £20in the pot.
