Handicap posting season is over in MN.  Finished out the year as a 2.9.  My goal was to get to a 3 this year so mission accomplished!

Congrats Hcky.

I'm still struggling to hang on to my 6. I'm hoping for a 5ish by year end. :unsure:

I've being hanging around 14 for most of 2016.  My short game has a tendency to disappear more often than not and that in itself keeps my handicap higher than I care for.  Oh well I'm not house bound so life is good....    :D

Well despite my awful play as of late, a couple of good rounds is saving my handicap. 0.1 as of my last revision. 

I have our club's version of the Ryder cup this weekend so that means its time to drag my putting mat out of the garage and do some work this week.

Our HCP season should have been over on Nov 1 instead of the Nov 15 date, at least according to my index!!  The weather has been spotty; some days good, others not so much and it seems like I have been playing on the bad days.  I'm up to 8.3 from 7.9 last revision.  Playing in more clothes than I am used to seems to affect my play, but I fear that playing in my summer clothes and freezing would be worse.

I began the year at 26, currently at 17.9

 

I was coming off a couple years of not playing and recovering from two TKR surgeries in late 2014, I didn't play much at all last year.    New job with more opportunity to play and practice had me set a goal being at 17 by the end of this year.  We have another week of posting season here, so I may not get to 17.0  but I'm in the neighborhood.   

 

With more practice I might have gotten there, but I played more golf this year than probably the past 4 or 5 years combined.   Close to 39 rounds and will definitely top 50 next year, now that I have a year in settled on the new job. 

 

Will probably set a goal of getting to 13 or below next year.

I finished the season at 13.7, full point higher since I had surgery in June. Next year's goal will be to stay healthy and lower my index down into the 11's if not lower.

Played for the first time in some months today (work) - 74 on 72. I have played to a 0-2 since high school with a few big rounds and some really good rounds in there. Planning on attempting to open qualify next year so will be getting a GHIN soon and will be sure to keep it updated.

 

Cheers

Closed the season at a 1.6 which is two shots higher than I started the season. I will take it considering I joined a new club in February and played a little over half the season injured.

I forgot to post on the 15th. However, my Hcp didn't change. 6.4. I use a calendar year for my season so I still have a little way to go. Good news is I've been playing well lately and will cram a lot of golf in between now and Jan. 1st. So... I still might break 6.  ;)

Ugh...played in a league with Carolina Golfer 2.  He's seen me go really low, then the following week sky high.  Unofficial HC is now 15.4...thought it was around 16-17.  I'm going to try and shoot to get it down around a 10 by the end of 2017.  Pretty hard goal to reach, but I'm going to go for it.  I just need more range and play time.

Actually MD I think your goal is very obtainable. Even easy. I've always said (this is not necessarily original thinking) that a higher handicapper can drop 8-10 hcp. points in a hurry with practice and playing. Perhaps a few lessons to make sure your swing fundamentals are working in your favor.  But... It's when you decide to go below 10 hcp. where things start getting much harder. Go below 5 hcp. and even harder still. You'll see. This is also predicated on you having decent equipment that fits you reasonably well. Perhaps you can have it checked and adjusted if necessary. Good course management will help too. Play smart.

Yes... I think you will get to a 10 hcp. Maybe lower?

Yep, MDGH, I know I don't have to tell you this, but PlaidJacket is spot on.   Much easier to drop those 5 strokes going for 15 to 10 than a 5 getting to scratch.  Plus you've been there before, as you said, I've seen you play a lot of solid golf and I would say you had your best year off the tee this year, that I've ever seen.    Just need to sure up those rapport shots and the putting and you will be right there. 

 

Oh and along with practice, if you decided to buy some new shiny toys to get you there, you have my full support  :D
