Sorry for my slacking . . . I did not even realize I hadn't written a recap of either of the first two weeks of this league . . . with this being so ground-breaking being handicapped I better pay more attention and mention things as they happen!
The first two weeks saw only a couple of rounds under "Par" (after handicap) and the rest above "Par". This week . . . noone "beat" their handicap and quite a few people were well above their "averages". It was a rough week with the single digit temperatures, 3-4 inches of snow causing at least 2 lost discs, , the unfamiliarity with the temporary winter holes, and the slippery rubber teepads on those holes.
It will definitely be interesting to see how the handicap league turns out . . . I tried to do my best to come up with a good handicap system and I feel as though throughout an entire season things will level off between players. While someone might start the league with a "generous" handicap, others might find it difficult to stand up to their handicap for one reason or another. i will be sure to analyze the results of this league thoroughly to make sure all future handicap leagues are fair for everyone.
Thanks to the crazies for coming tonight and I look or much better weather in the rest of December and January!
