    Who actually won the Ryder Cup?

    For me it doesn't actually matter but I see your point. great event maybe we should let the Americans use the rest of the world players to give them a chance again?

    Who actually won the Ryder Cup?

    In real time and not TV coverage, who secured the win? When GARCIA went 'Dormie', it meant that Europe were guaranteed at least 14.5 points. This was missed by TV . What do you guys think?

    texas scramble

    'the powers that be' are your own competitions organisers, it's there decision to decide on how the format of the competition is decided. Personally I've seen a team of high handicappers a beat a low handicap team on regular occasions in a scramble.

    texas scramble

    Why do the powers that be think it fair to use 10% of the total handicap of a four player team. Eg. 4 x 25 handicap players after deduction have to play off a handicap of 10 a team of four each with a handicap of 5 after 10% deduction play a handicap of two who do you think the likely winners will be.

    New to Golfshake

    Hello all, I'm new to Golfshake and thought I'd check in to say hello. I'm Ryan, I'm 32 and I live on the west side of Leeds. After playing a little when I was younger, I've got back into golf over the 20 months in a big way. Unfortunately for me, the friends I had started to play with have become parents recently and their free time is limited. Having seen similar posts from other members, I am sort of hopeful of finding some folk to play with. In the next few months I'd like to think about joining somewhere to play evenings and Sundays, and get my hands on a real handicap for the first time. I generally play to 20ish handicap (with a couple of lost balls), though I'd like to think I could go lower. Cheers, Ryan

    High handicap.

    @Andy Nixon it is coming. In the UK we are heavily bound by the tradition of red, yellow, white tees ie ladies, general men play, men competition. However, over the last few years courses have started to introduce blues/greens often for juniors. The States do this much better than use and once the updates course rating and slopes are introduced in the UK then courses should be able to do away with red, yellow, white and go with what they like. Each tee will then have a men and ladies rating and slope meaning handicaps can then be applied based on which tee you are playing. This would then make it much easier for a fourball to play off differing tees and still compete from a handicap perspective.

    High handicap.

    It has very little to do with 'golf' in general and more to do with your course layout, the course manager and greenkeepers. They are the people that can determine that fairways have long carrys etc.

    Match play doubles

    If one player has left then I doubt anybody would be happy with that player continuing in the competition, whether the 2nd player can continue will depend on the format and possibly club rules too (although most club rules are to ensure the players are still members, rather than one player leaving). If the format is betterball then the single player could continue (obviously with handicaps determined exactly the same way as if the missing player was still playing) , if the format is foursomes (or greensomes) then bad luck the player can't continue to play on their own.

    Match play doubles

    Surely it would depend on whether the club rules or conditions of competition specifies the membership status of competitors. My Club rules uses the words Member or Members in relation to all competitions. Conditions of Competition refer to Players.

    Match play doubles

    In our club match play doubles competition one of the players has left the club with them in the quarter finals . Just wondered does anyone no the ruling on the continuation of the match . No shots have yet been played in this match . My understanding is either : 1. The team forfeits the match 2 . The remaining player must play the match on his own thanks in advance .

    High handicap.

    Just a question regarding the tee boxes for general club competitions. Why is golf geared to the "younger players" who can hit the ball miles and clear the initial 150 yards on a par 4 or so with ease. I am a player with too many years behind him so I feel I can't compete even though I have a high handicap. Off the competition tees, golf is a totally different game. So the high handicap doesn't really work for the more 'elderly' player. Why can't there be a system where your handicap dictates which tee box to use in club competitions. I could leave my club I suppose and use a pay and play facility for fun rounds but that's not what I want. I like my club and I love golf, but the battle between the 300+ drivers and the course pin positions to fight back and "protect the course" is winning the dual. I would love to play from a tee box that reflects my ability in a competition and give me half a chance.

    Re-entering starting handicap not working

    Hi, have you been to the handicap recalculate page? From there you can set your starting handicap at 22. If you then run the recalc option with no date checkbox not tick all should be fine. Let me know. Or email support via help at golfshake dot com Regards, Darren.
  21. Hi, when I started submitting my scores for handicap tracking I didn't enter my starting handicap of 22. I am now trying to re-enter this and recalcualte my handicap accordingly, but when I do it doesn't appear to do anything? I've submitted 5 rounds since tracking on golf shake and it's given me a playing handicap of 25, but if I had started on 22, I wouldn't be this high, especially considering one of the rounds was an 87 gross.
