The debate about who benefits from strokes is an interesting one. You think it could be revamped in a way to factor in par potential on a given hole, versus overall scores. Is the high cap just consistently bad throughout the round, or is it half pars and half quads?
I’ve been doing well in league matches at the moment as I was sick the last couple years and rehabbing. I have the potential of a lower handicap, making 3 or 4 pars for 9 holes, but league handicap is about double as I’ve been shooting bogey golf overall for the 9 holes.

I shot 79 day 1 and felt like a complete moron. I don’t play AM events anymore, but if I did, I’d never put lower than 0 ever again.
In the bag:
PING. Lots of PING.

On the Handicap note, it's shocking at how many people don't know the process. I'd say at least 75% of golfers out there think if you are a 3 handicap you are expected to shoot a 75 every time. Most also seem to think that handicap is proportional to driving distance as well. I hit the ball a long ways off the tee and I do get the "There's no way you are a 4 handicap" comment pretty regularly. I normally just respond with "I can also hit it a long way into the woods too".

Maybe one day I can add to this thread as being a low handicap. Until then I will live vicariously through you all and enjoy the stories! Keep it up and keep it alive!
This. I'm a 11 and I've definitely added some shots to my arsenal from having low cappers show me(without me even asking) while playing a laid back round, especially shots around the green

What really used to chap my butt was playing in any kind of handicapped tournament. It never failed that somebody I was giving 20 strokes to had the â€śround of their livesâ€ť and smoked the field. After a half a dozen tournaments with the same song and dance the â€śround of their lifeâ€ť ruined me on anything handicapped.
I will say this, it seemed like a lot of the higher handicapped golfers I played with didnâ€™t know what good golf really looked like. If I wasnâ€™t hitting driver 350 and throwing darts I must be â€śoff my gameâ€ť. They thought I should hit driver every hole and attack every pin. Heaven forbid someone lay up off the tee to hit the fairway, hit approach shots into the fat part of a green, and two putt for par.

mysterious, but I cant talk about it
and I can't talk about why.

When I play with the stronger groups, strokes are not involved and everything is straight up. I am not the best but can be the best on a given day so the competitive juices kick in and I want to win. These are the days when knowing HC matters to me. Going lower than someone better than you is FUN. Going lower or higher than someone worse than me on any given day does not register on my meter. I know it is a fickle game lol.
