...on the latest handicap revision from GHIN! For the first time in my adult life, my handicap index may rise high enough to disqualify me from even entering a qualifier for the New York State Golf Association's Mid-Amateur Championship. Long story short, I hurt my lower back working out late last fall and even though I've worked really hard at healing and rehabbing it, it's still not quite right. So I've been fiddling around with my swing and haven't been able to get everything synchronized. My touch from 60 yards and in is finally starting to come back, so I've been scoring better of late, but my putting has ranged from horrific to mediocre for most of the season.
As you can see, I've been saving up excuses. Will let you know in a few hours if I'm in or out!
[Update 1 (7/30/14, 10:50 am): Wait, the next revision isn't till August 1st. So I guess the question is should I play before I fly out to Austin?]
