How much has your Index fluctuated over the 1st year of WHS...?
Any really steady Eddies or are you up and down like a Yo-yo?
List your last pre-WHS handicap, your first WHS index, your highest, lowest and current...
Who's had a good year, or a bad one..?

Pre WHS 6.1
1st WHS 6.4
Highest 8.4
Lowest 6.3
Current 7.1

45 scores in 2021

It would be useful to indicate if more or less than 20 scores have been recorded.

Pre WHS I was playing off 5

1st WHS I was playing off 7

Now playing off 3

21 scores submitted, played more social golf than I have for years which has helped bring some consistency back into my game.

Cards only going in from comps in the future.

What about your Index? "Playing off" is course related and could be Course Handicap or Playing Handicap

Probably makes a difference on half a dozen courses in England so not worth bothering about.

I do check if playing elsewhere but not been any different yet.

It's been hilarious when work colleagues ask 'what do you play off?' I give them all 3 then and watch them shake their heads.

If you aren’t interested in others numbers then why are you bothering with the thread 🙄
Why are you so interested in my reason(s)?
Edit: But if you are really concerned, I thought the original premise had potential for those who may be interested in other players' performance, until apples started being compared with pears.
