If you’re on the fence about getting a Handicap, let’s go over a few reasons why you should get on the bandwagon!
- It levels the playing field
Imagine you, being a weekend warrior and you want to go out for an afternoon tee time. You have one friend who crushes you every time and two others who are newer to the game but really want to work on their skills. If everyone has a Handicap, then you’re all able to play competitively against one another, all while having fun!
2. Compete in Local Competitions
If you’re looking to play in a local competition or tournament, many require that you have a handicap. This will allow the tournament to once again level the playing field.
3. Tracks Your Progress
You will be able to track your scores and see your progress over time. Whether you’re just looking to shave a few strokes or get serious about the game, having a handicap will give you great insight to your game!
4. Understanding the Handicap Index
If you don’t have one yet, you may have been asked “hey what’s your handicap?” and you may not have an answer. Do yourself a favor, get a Handicap!
5. Be Accurate
With a Handicap, you’ll know where you’re skill level is at. You won’t have to guess, saying maybe you’re around an 18-20 and then proceed to shoot an 80. You’ll no longer be invited to play after that!
