You probably have a good idea about your average score, right? But do you know how the average score by handicap of players slightly better than you? Today, we took a deep dive into our database and analyzed millions of golf rounds to summarize it in a simple, yet useful graph.
Take a peek at the chart below and locate yourself within your handicap in order to find out the average score for your level. This clearly show how your average over par is not the same as your handicap index.
How does this graph make you feel? You might think the average score of handicap lower than yours is not so far off, right? Well that’s because the Index really shows your performance on your best rounds and not the average. But you knew this.
What’s also interesting is that there are, in rare case, golfers whose average is closer to their Index. Those players are usually a lot more constant than the average player. And that limited variability is an incredible asset that the Index does communicate. Those players have an advantage and will win most of the time. Are you one of those? Our Stats module is a great way to check it out.
