Sure or not? Suspect

I play with you, anything from 6 feet, close eyes also in the cup almost everytime.

Putt like that cannot break 100 better go and play Ping Pong already.

This coming 8th can re-confirm since we are on the same flight. Very Happy

Thats the perfect handicap for asking strokes...

Dun believe, ask ZX. He is a master at it.

Here @ GR, hdcp seems oni to be a number. Skill level displayed is dependant on the amt of bets involved.

I would be happy if I can play at 17hcp... but i shall try to be below score 100 first...

putting is horriible... always go all over the green except for the hole... if i can finish in 2 put... 99.99% my ball would have gone for a few scuba diving for that hole...

hahaha...

Is it a policy of the members of this forum to exaggerate or be embarrassed about their low handicap?

I think it's pretty sad when you mock the very basis the game is based on - honesty.

I apologize in advance if I've offended anyone, but hey, if I've offended you, maybe the issue is closer to your heart than you think? Wink

Hahahahaa nothing, bro.. It was long existent even before you stepped in here... Smile

I'm sure the guys in here are mature enough to discuss it with dignity, honesty and respect.

In the mean time, Merry Christmas everyone! Smile

I think most of them here are just joking about it.. cos it always easier to have more games when you are not a low handicapper. There is always two school of thoughts when it comes to sports TFP... some of us likes to play with people around our own standard, and some of us likes to take on people who are much better than us....But u are right about the honesty.. It takes time to reach a certain hcp... be it 17 or even 5.... the more difficult part if you ask me is maintaining it and playing to your hcp....

And i quote with that arsenal in his bag - "Id love to be able to score 89..."

PTUI!

I think yeah, from now on, that's what i'm gonna say to anyone whom i know is lying about their ability. I'm gonna gargle my saliva for like 45 seconds, and then let it rip! PTUI!

So pushslice, consider yourself PTUI-ed!

ahahahahhahahaaaaa!
