What else could a post about handicap reviews be named except a can of worms? We’re all very sensitive/protective/proud/thoroughly embarrassed on occasion by those magic numbers by our name on the club list. It’s that time of year prior to 1st March (in advance of the new golfing year in May), where handicaps are open to review.
Matt sent round an email today with a Word file details:
The Handicap Committee will be carrying out an annual handicap review over the next couple of weeks. Please refer to the enclosed guidance – if you would like to be considered for a handicap review, or would like to suggest that another member ought to be considered for a handicap review, please contact the Proshop and let them know why.
One anonymous wag (in the more traditional sense of the word, not like Rooney’s missus), has made some suggestions.
Wayne – on account of he’s stopped drinking for a month so he must be sober now.
Macca – gets in every doubles final known to man and practices every week so he really cant be that bad.
Geoff Duncanson – turns up late and goes to the gym!
Peter Jnr – plays off of 9 in the swindle and 14 club after just a few weeks!
Sean – he’s the club captain, do we need any other excuse?
Loveless – well we just don’t like him/has the habit of winning when there’s a large pot.
Mark – up two I’d say, he really is that bad.
Ah, the opportunity for some friendly banter. Let’s keep it slightly civil. I suggested we don’t add to Mr Winks’ handicap because if he won another major this year the clubhouse will be intolerable (and the full-size portrait of himself he’d undoubtably commission to go on the wall could be a turn off to new members). Oh, I could add another comment there!
If there are further suggestions please enter them below (and yes I will be moderating them!)
