I didn’t think it was possible to improve on 2010’s low mark of 12.0 but today my handicap index is down to 10.7. I’m delighted with the improvement but it is due in part, I think, to having played Mt. St golf course so often (over 500 times) and having mastered most every problem it can present. My average score there since April is 84.4; at all other courses it’s 87.5. Of course, the average slope rating for those “other” courses is 121 significantly more difficult than Mt. SI’s 117.
