Also I apologize to you all I was tryin to reply to everyone but my phone won't let me use the quote deal to tag who I was replying to.
trapshootinkid25's first answer was pretty spot on. Just shoot the best you can (we were all knew to the shooting sports one time ourselves), and your scores will improve to reflect you new ability. Enjoy the learning experience and find shooters to help you get better; and just "let the cards play out as they may" !!! Have fun, and shoot as much as you can afford to.I do honestly try to break as many as I can as do the other two on my team. But as I mentioned were new to it so we're obviously not the best at it. 14-16 is about where I'm at now so hopefully by the end of this league I can up it some more yet.
Our league handicap scores are calculated on the computer. We have a computer programmer at our club and he wrote the program to only allow a maximum handicap score of 24 1/2.What would be considered a fair handicap system for a small club league for guys that shoot say 9 to 12 scores with guys who could shoot say an occasional straight?
Been in a league where honest to God they had a shoot off where the handicap could get the score of 28s and 29s so basically the better shooters did not have a chance.
I can handle getting my butt whipped but pencil whipped nope.
Any links to good handicap systems you have used?
Not to hijack this thread it can be moved.
Those are pretty good beginner scores. Just pay attention to your shots and you’ll soon be one of those “better” shooters.I mean I'm not doing horrible I don't guess first week I broke 14 second I broke 15 and I shot 16 in a practice round. I'm not purposefully shooting bad I'm shooting what I can. I wasn't meaning they said to shoot worse just that I would have a better chance of winning by having a lower score in the beginning because somehow the handicap is supposed to help me keep pace with the better shooters.
