I'm going to highjack the title of this thread and call it the "venting thread' at least for this post. 

Last year I ended up with a 21.5 index. With the new GHIN calculation this year it went up to 22.5. I worked hard over the winter on my drives, fairway shots and putting. After 20 rounds I was able to lower my Index to 19.6.as of last week.  A pretty big downward jump given it was cold, windy and miserable for probably half of those rounds. FYI just 2 weeks ago I booked my best ever round of 84 but basically the top 8 out of 20 were based on 90-91 scoring rounds. 

The I get this email from the "Cap Patrol Police" at our club today:

"Cap Patrol has flagged you for having inconsistencies in your handicap index.  These initial adjustments are reflective of the last 10 years of GHIN data as well as the previous 2 seasons of tournament golf at CIC.  Specifically, you have been flagged based on Cap Patrols metric of lack of accumulation of tournament points vs. handicap index trend over last 12 months.

Current Index - 19.6
Cap Patrol Recommendation - 2.6 upward adjustment
75% of Cap Patrol Recommendation = 1.95 Rounded to 2
Resulting Handicap Index = 21.6
 
WT*, you're using 10 years worth of data and lack of tournament points??? Where's the incentive to get better??? 😡
 
Sorry Rant over. 

"Cap Patrol Police"...good grief 😏.  Reading this makes me hesitant to ever establish a formal handicap again.  The on-line DIY calculator works just fine and I totally trust myself.

So this happens to quite often.

The area code for the entire UP is 906.

Just so happens that morning and night I check the time at 906 nearly every day.

What does it all mean?!

I lived 1 hour from Mackinac Island. Finally went last year. Crazy. My parents are from just north of Flint.

... We really are a pair and should know better. 😅  I normally pay little attention to Pro's equipment as anything from the best in the world but the short game is radically different than my capabilities. Putting and wedge play would be the exception and when so many on Tour switched to the Spyder so quickly and with great success, I was seduced. 

Putter seduction is a cruel mistress

Just sold our camper... emoji22.png

Looking to buy a small more like tiny cottage in Copper Harbor, Mi.

We find ourselves wishing we were back in the Yoop more than not.

All that complaining about long winters, there’s just something magical about that place.

Tiny cottage?  Near the water?  Would that be one of those little houses that sit on the ice in the middle of a lake??  😁

Haha. No, I wasn’t much of an Ice fisherman.

I fell through as a kid, so I try to avoid hard water as much as possible.

Another new hobby, what happened to skateboarding?


Yeah... skateboarding. Fishing is a lot easier on my body.

I still ride it at least once a week, just going to cruise around on the thing. My days of big air and landing on my head are over.

Still working on the hardflip... on carpet.
