His handicap got down to a 6.6...in the end of August...so right before his offseason ends. Of course it goes up after playing football for 4 months, or do you think he's got a lot of time to keep working on his game while he's in the middle of football season?
Interesting. This demonstrates a significant difference between the UK and US system. We (UK) only get 0.1 shots back if we fail to hit buffer (effectively 2 or 3 over our h/c) in a comp. So over here, he'd still be off 6.6 if he hadn't played since August. Even if he had played 10 rounds in the 90s since then, he would only have gone up 1 shot. Given that form is temporary and class is permanent, I think that would better reflect his abilities.
