I’ve struggled this summer. Unfortunately my schedule has been all thrown out of whack by a “commitment” I made which I’m really regretting. Never again.
As a result my scores haven’t been as low as normal and my handicap has gone up from a 1.3 to a 2.3. This may not seem like a lot, but the closer you are to scratch the more difficult it is to lower your handi. As an example, I’d say it is more difficult to go from a 2 to a 1 than it would be to go from a 25 to a 15. I’ve been trying to get from a 1 to a zero and that is even tougher. I had it to a .9 for two weeks a couple of years ago.
I had a good 71 last week which helped but no super low rounds like the 68 and several 69’s I had last season. The year isn’t over yet, but I’ve got some work to do.
