      Generally if you are a male 80s shooter, it will be hard for you to get a scholarship or play on a good program. Women D1: +handicaps to 6 D2: D3: 10 and up If you are a women shooting 90s and up it will be difficult to get a scholarship although not impossible. Again, these are just averages that I see. Think of this another way if you score two over par for each hole you play on an 18 hole course then your handicap would be If you score one over par on each hole then you would be an 18 handicapper commonly known as bogey golf.

        Like you all know, we are all about improving the Golf Handicap. All we want to do is help you lower that Number to enjoy the Game much more and of course, brag about it. But in order for us (or any other Golfer out there) to improve that Index, you have to know where you are missing, what are your weaknesses and practice those areas to get better. Join us – and Lower Your Scores!” sand play and putting represent 65% of the shots in golf and 80% of your handicap. 3-Day Scoring Game School. Our premier school covers distance wedges, pitching, chipping, sand play and putting. You learn how to perform .

      Handicap is effectively a head start for a golfer, so as a less experienced or a lower standard of golfer, you’re allowed a head start, over a better or more experienced golfer, so that ultimately when you get to the 18th hole, and you’ve finished your round of golf, it should be a level playing field. I believe that if you focused on improving your wedge play and working on your speed control on the greens, that you can improve those numbers without a huge time commitment. Every golfer’s game is unique, and I can’t tell you specifically what part of your game you need to fix for breaking 80 to become a reality for you.
