I had a pretty bad round last weekend. Scored a 10 on the par 5 8th (first drive hazard, second drive OB) and a 9 on the par 5 10th (first drive hazard never crossing land, second drive hazard, three putt). No birdies, but some decent pars and some decent shots. I’m trying to embrace the variability in golf and not get too upset when a bad round sneaks in. And sometimes I’m successful. But I always wonder how bad is bad enough that it’s OK to be pissed about it.
I heard about the anti-handicap for the first time ever. I’ve read it’s the worst 8 of your last 20 and I’ve read it’s the worst 12 of your last 20. I like the 8 of 20 math, so I used that.
HC 8.1, AHC 12.9
4.8 is a lot closer than I would have guessed. My worst differential is 15.6.
The answer is: Don’t shoot higher than my worst differential. By the time I get off the course and look it up, I’ll have put things in perspective and I’ll be mad for about 10 seconds. Or at least that’s the plan.
Anyone want to share their AHC?
P.S. Like @Bh18 I miss the activity on this board, so I decided to post something and be part of the solution.
