Over-declare is bad. 

On a unrelated note, this is the longest a Duval-thread has gone! Congrats Wink

Well done, Duval.

Being an erratic golfer, this is a hard call to make. On a good day, I might see 80, but when my swing decides to have a mind of its own, I smell low to mid 90s.  So when I play with people I am not too familiar with, I will declare my handicap @ 10. Why?
A) if I play well, which is rare these days, then at best I am 2 under, which isn't normally frowned upon as a buaya. 
B) if I screw up with 95, then at least it won't be as embarrassing as if I had declared myself as a single handicapper. But more importantly, I won't be branded a cheat.
So I would say, I'd rather declare a lower handicap then higher.  Of course if I am a consistent golfer, then I will surely declare my true handicap.  No glory in winning by taking more strokes or giving less strokes. Just my 2 cents.
