A golf handicap is a measure of your ability. In short, a golf handicap is calculated as the average number of strokes above par a player is likely to score in a round of golf.
Each year I set myself a handicap target and so far I have managed to achieve my goal each year. I am determined to make sure I hit my goal again this year.
I am playing to handicap most weeks however I know I can play better. Last week I shot 1 over my handicap in competition. I did not start the round very well and I finished with a triple bogey on the last hole so removing a few shots from a round should be achievable.
I feel I let myself down at times when I play in a competition. I turn up not long before my tee slot, step on to the first tee and hope I am swinging well. If I were to get to the club a little earlier have a warm up and a practice then maybe I will be able to score better.
This weekend is medal weekend so perhaps I should give it a try. The course is playing well at the moment and the weather has been great. Let’s hope the sun is shining this weekend and I can tear it up!
