No shame in exposing one's self! You have to be at 25 before you can hit 18, 12, 9, or whatever.

 

As long as we enjoy playing the game, our score is not important.

So many folks put priority on scores over how much fun should be had.... If they don't shoot a certain score or obtain a certain handicap level, they stress over it. Golf scores are all too often placed on an unobtainable level.  Golf is a game which you can strive to do your best however you will never obtain perfection. Why do we beat our selves up when we have an off day.  Don't deny it as we all pout now and then when the game get's tough. Life is short and golf is a game so eff the stress and let's lighten up and have fun.

I'm finally on a downward trend, 13.7 down from 14. Still a lil ways to go before I'm back to where I was before getting sick a year ago. Goal is to be in the 10s by fall.

I hung around 18-25 for the first few years when I took up golf.  I had three big issues.  Big slice; bad pitching/chipping, and putting with "hands of stone".  I fixed the slice by going to a golf school; I treated it like a vacation.  Then short game issues I fixed with lots of practice.  I actually like short game work, but hate the driving range.  As I got better from 100 yards and in, my handicap dropped quickly.  As PlaidJacket said... it's fairly easy to get to 14-18, but all parts of the game have to come together to get down below 10, and I don't think I have the game to get to low digits; just too old.  But the process of getting lower keeps me going because I love it.

Track my handicap online and ended last season around a 16.9, though I don't get out nearly as much as I did pre-kids, but the goal is to get down to single digits at some point...lots of chipping and putting practice!

This is me word for word! Floating around a 16.8 and PK (prek-kids) was as low as a 7.8 index. Once the kids came along, golfing became secondary and the much needed practice to keep my handicap low just didn't happen. Heck, I'd be lucky to make it to the course 10 minutes before the tee time let alone the hour or so of practice I use to do before the tee time plus the weekday practice I used to put in. The Kids are getting older which has opened up more golfing for me once again. We should get out to play. I play in a tourney at The Links at Gettysburg every year and play a few courses in York, PA.

Same here - played close to scratch in my early 20's. Then wife... kids... job... and golf went away.

 

I'm one of those 'holic people, so playing once a month just won't cut it. Didn't play at all for over 15 years. Kids are older, wife likes to get me out of her way, and golf has taken over again. 3-4 years later, still trying to get back to where I was...

Hardest journey to make,especially when you've been a single digit. Your standing over a shot you've just missed thinking, I would never have missed that 15 years ago when I was a single digit. Gotta remind myself that A) I am no longer a single digit and B) enjoy the fact that you are just out playing. :)

My biggest issue right now is focus (or concentration, or whatever). I'll be even or under at the turn, and all of a sudden just lose it... blow up a couple holes, then realize I need to get my life together. Once I re-focus, finish strong. It's that 2-3 holes where it goes away that create my current handicap...

Nothing wrong with that tony@CIC, the Hcap is just a measuring tool that allows you to play with a lower Hcap person by identifying the stroke difference. We play a dot game every week, with hcaps of 6.5/13/17/20.

Slid back up to 13.8 in my latest revision. Short game has been a dumpster fire for about 3 mos, but I haven't played much. Starting to come around a little bit. Want to see if I can sneak under 11 again this Summer.

As many have said, it's just a measuring tool. You're really always playing against yourself. More important to enjoy the camaraderie and being outdoors and alive!!

I'm currently sitting at a 16. I'm going to watch that go down this year. My wedge game was killing me. I was fitted for new wedges this winter, and am dying to get on the course

I wanted a legit assessment of my handicap in pressure situations, so I only entered scores from tournament rounds last year. I'm starting the season at a 7.7. In 2015 I entered all rounds and I had a low of 1.8, then ended the season on a 3.8, after a shoulder injury. As you can see, there's quite a big difference when entering only tournament rounds. I'm doing the same thing this year and I'm hoping to drop it significantly.

Our GHIN posting season ended today.  The last couple of months for me were great!!  I had several rounds in the 70's and a few in the low 80's.  (I won't mentioned the 2 bad rounds this last weekend before my surgery in the cold weather.)  My index dropped from 9.5 to 7.9, tying my all-time low index.  I was struggling all summer, but the golf school in October really helped me get back on track.  At one point I had 7 scores in a row that were included in my 10 best.  I think I might be struggling this next spring to live up to my performance this fall.
