I have been fortunate enough to shoot sub par twice, but at the end of the day that single GREAT score is only one of 20 in the handicap calculation, and then when it disappears the handicap index jumps back up by a full stroke or two. I went down from a 10 to an 8 in 2012 then with one GREAT score, my handicap dropped to a 6 and 20 games later I was back to an 8 again. Unfortunately those awesome rounds are few and far between... Sigh !
My resolution is to get my 4 year old son to consistent level of ball striking in the backyard net, that I can take him to a par 3 course for the first time.
