Why would a junior golfer be on here who is a 18 handicap? This site is for people who care about golf and want to improve.

A lot of juniors, especially at my club, post only their good scores.
I only post tournament scores so my handicap is pretty accurate to what I play to.

I think that only the most obsessed-with-golf juniors go on forums and boards like this, therefore the majority of them have low handicaps because they are obsessed. I got hooked playing golf myself, I would say that being obsessed with golf isn't all bad.
In regards to handicaps, I would have to say that most junior golfers only post their best scores. But in the end, you're only hurting yourself by doing that.

As I understand it, here in the U.S. your handicap is essentially based on "potential". The best 10 of the last 20 scores are what counts I believe. My handicap is "real" and I only post yournament scores. Does this mean I only shoot in the 60s? I WISH!!! But a 69 or 70 during an AJGA tourney on a course with a 75 rating drops the index pretty low. Couple that with a 77 that gets thrown out as it's not one of the best 10 of the last 20 and you have a plus index.

i'm a 1.6 handicap. ive been playing three years, but i play as much as i can and spend almost all my money on golf and gas. ive never had a lesson, but i played a lot of sports. im now 18 and started palying golf at 15. i played hockey and baseball and i think the two really helped me. i play righty and putt left. i played hockey lefty. i consider myself a good putter not to be cocky or anything. i can play lefty and shoot 90 or so, but that doesnt compare to my scores righty. i guess my point is.. that junior golfers who work hard on their game can have legitemently low handicaps. especially athletic kids who turn their focus to golf. in theory it is not a difficult game. think about it. a 450 yard par four. average kid now a day can hit it at least 280. you hit the ball 280 straight you got 170 left. hit a 7 iron. hit the green and two putt. if youre able to keep that up it isnt that hard to shoot a good score. you can get a bogey every three holes and shot 79 on a par 72 and that doesnt account for any birdies. just think like that when playing and i think youll have handicaps like many junior and college players. hope this is helpful to those critics. and i hope i dont come off cocky or anything i really dont mean to in any way. peace
