    And, handicap changes are made following an assessment of your stableford score no matter the format of the quatlifying competition played. So anyone truly wishing to reduce their handicap would adopt a stableford stategy no matter what format of competition. So no, playing stableford rather than medals should, with the right mindset, enhance your ability to lower your handicap.

    How do some of you escape bans? I mean you , fish , d4s , liverpoolphil to name a few are obnoxious beyond belief . Others are allowed opinions that don't match yours, you can politely disagree you know.

    Give me stroke play all day where you need to put a number in each box and finish every hole. Stableford is a poor format that any duffer can play and talk more about good old Mr Blobby and what could have been

    Wonder how the OP rates original Stableford. We play that for fun once a month and that can concentrate the mind.

    I agree, but leave me , mr blobby out of it at mine we only have 2 Stableford comps a year, and they're no quicker than normal medal rounds.
    Why don't the pros play Stableford in their comps ?
