It has been since January and 200 comments so here comes 4.0. Handicap rant. Although my handicap is golf itself the SCGA calculates our golf scores and gives us a monthly handicap. I have been a member of the scga for decades. When in my late teens and through my 20s my index was as low as a 2.1. Then work and little play from my late 20s to 45 ish went all the way up to a 15.3. The last maybe 5 years I have been taking lessons'again, practicing and playing a lot (for me). I shoot a majority of the time in the mid 80s but also shoot in the upper 70s 2 out of 10 times maybe. Record low for me was at the Wynn two years ago when I shot 71. As you can see below I suck and the inconsistency kills me but I have fun and really enjoy golf. Today the SCGA calculates my index at a 7.3. That is ridiculous. I am realistically a 14. To me a 7 means in shooting in the 70s every round. I might shoot a 78 but the next day shoot in the 90s. I know it all depends on the slope ratings and so on but come on 7.3? I found out as of late they make their calculations by taking the 10 lowest rounds only! Even with that I don't know how I am a 7.3? Fairways and greens everyone!
