The "Why I am a high handicap" thread


Recommended Posts

All..I have been tracking my stats for a few years now and despite striking the ball better than ever this year, HDCP is up .5 points.  I play at a 18.8 which is a bummer since, like most of you, I think i should be better.  So, lets add to why you are a higher handicap.  Here are my stats:

 

  • Average score 93
  • My by hole par...Par 3's (4)...down 1 stroke this year.  Par 4's (5.4) up .2 this year...Par 5's (6.3) up .2 this year
  • Driving accuracy.  53% hit. This above average
  • GIR...13%.  Up a bit a this year but the average for my HDCP is 21%
  • Here's the biggie and this is up 1.3 this year...average penalties a round....6.3

 

Anyway, there is a lot to improve but that penalty number has got to come down in addition to other things but thought I'd share and it.  It's good to track this stuff to know where you are at b/c without it, I would THINK I was playing better golf this year but the stats don't lie.

I’m a 9.6 index. Should be a 5. My short game sucks. But i’ll be back on the range tomorrow….😐

I stopped hitting the range daily this year.. I now spend my time on the chipping and putting area... 

Shocking how my scores have dropped.. played 9 holes the other day and had 14 putts..

Green reading is my biggest fault, its truly shocking, people i play with think its my putting, and sure i do hit some bad putts, but the majority of the time i do hit my putts online, its just the completely wrong line, ive contemplated trying aimpoint but still not done anything about it yet

It's part of the Use The Bounce 2.0 series. I would say the entire series is brilliant, but the putting section is worth the money alone. 

Ok you've started me down a rabbit hole here. This kind of method screams to a feel player like me.

It revolutionised my putting. Since my health went south I couldn't read greens at all (the grass just looks like it's moving!) and it was stopping me shooting around par. First time out using voodoo and I either made everything, missed short or shaved the hole. Shot level par.
