    If you come to Loxton next year I reckon you would be odds on favourite to win B grade. Most of the scores there are pretty crappy and spread over two rounds.
    good, different

    I'll be shooting and eyeing off C Grade by then hopefully. Shot on every hole plus a double bungger or two. Perfect Hcp for enjoyable Golf.

    5.4 above my handicap on 22 December but only 3.3 above where I was on 31 January when I assume they reset anchors.

    I’m about to drop 4 flags in a row and 5 in my next 6 rounds.

    Raised the bat for the first time in history in my last game at Wynnum in late September 2019. Two games back in the past two weeks, raised the bat on both occasions, and anchored immediately.

    Thats rather impressive 3pp.

    Despite coming in .3 in the last three rounds, I am still on the soft anchor, with two flags to come quickly including a 5.8.

    Here comes a daily of.... 13!!!

    I am getting very close.
    I will have a daily of 13 next week. And am absolutely nowhere near it.

    I don't have a single round in my last 20 where the Raw Score Differential is lower than my Daily Handicap. In other words, I haven't played to my handicap once. With a played to 5 dropping off, I've moved from 9.4 to 10.2 (from 5.8 twenty rounds ago), and have a double figure handicap for the first time in at least nine years, probably longer. Another flag to drop off with the next round too.

    You have to beat your handicap by lots to win B grade. I'm better off in A grade where I can win a comp by shooting 36 points (like I did at Portland in Feb).

    I spent 4 days on 10, had a daily handicap of 9 today, and now I'm out to 11 (10.5). It's getting towards that soft cap of 11.4.

    A played to 12 last week, then 14 today, when I had a daily handicap of 7, has me out to 10.8 now. I'm up to removing the 2016 rounds from my last 20 now. There are two of those left, and they are both flags. Surely, the slide will stop soon.

    11.2 even though I was off 6.1 16 rounds ago in Jan 2018. I am 0.2 away from the soft cap zone.

    Ah, gotcha.

    That seems a good thing, I guess. Slows (not stops) the burglars.

    A couple of weeks ago, I would have strongly disagreed with you, because Portland was a fluke and no other recent round was like that. However, the ball striking has now improved, so good scores should be just around the corner. I don't like being off 11, although the daily handicap has still been single figures every time, but that is the current reality. Who knows when the next Vic Champs will be though.

    Amateur. I've been sitting 0.2 over my soft cap for few rounds.

    More important, I've only got 6 pies left in the 'Pie Account', so I need to start doing better than the usual 31 points.
