    Handicaps are computed based on your scores;  as you play more golf it gets adjusted and after you play enough rounds it will go up.   

    Thanks, I've been playing golf for a while, when I was younger I use to do the handicapping 😉

    The question remains is there any rule for my situation or is it tough luck?

    Not sure what you are looking for regarding a handicap rule, but those scores seem quite reasonable for a former 16 'cap that hasn't played in 18 years.  You need to analyze your game; see where you are losing strokes the most; focus practice time on that part of your game.  Scores come down as practice time goes up.  Eliminate penalty strokes, 2-chips and 3-putts does wonders for your score.  If you want to speed up the process, invest in a few lessons from a local pro who will give you drills to use during your practice.

    So its a case off tough luck, and nothing to do with the 18 year break or my scores or my avg coming back into the game?

     I'm using my handicap on avg in 9 holes

    No time for practice or lessons...I'm more self taught, I'm just a casual golfer now, not competitive those days are way behind me 🙂

    I thought there might of been some sort of : break away from golf rule and or so far his avg suggests a look into his hcp, anyways but cheers for you input 🙂

  3. Hey

    ~Handicap question~

    Just wonder if there any sort of handicap rule for myself as i'm playing no where near what I use to play like?

    I use to play golf 18 years ago, off a rough 16 hcp, I've just gotten back into golf,

    and my best score : starting back is 95, worst: 115 gross, 112*

    101,95,102,104,112,109 ..avg 103


    Is it a case of hard luck, I'm stuck till (if) i get better?

    any help much appreciated
