2018 was (in general) a good golf year for me. I sat down and spent 10 minutes turning it into some numbers I though I'd share. Please leave any hilights from your 2018 as well.

Rounds played: around 80
New courses played: 21 (19 were 18 holes and 2 nines)

Low Handicap for the year: 12.6 (my lowest ever)
Rounds sub 85: 9 (More than the previous 3 years added together. )
Low round: 76 (Simi Hills - white tees - everyone else in my group shot around or over 100) 2 better than my best previous.

Free Rounds: 6 (3 thanks to being part of GK) (2 finding mysterious Zing points in my Golfzing account) (1 Trump National email)

Golf clubs stolen: 14
Golf clubs retrieved: 13 (that old hybrid needed to be replaced anyway)

GK Cup matches won: 0 (haven't won a single match since wining the cup my first try.)

Rounds played: only about 25
New courses played: 6 (Encinitas Ranch, Goose Creek, Trump National, Santaluz, Yocha Dehe, Darkhorse)
Best round played: 82 at Rams Hill (with GK!)
Most enjoyable round: Barona Creek in April after reuniting my longtime foursome for a round together
Favorite new course: Yocha Dehe was as nearly flawless a course as one could find.
GK Cup matches won: 0; though I was proud to take my match against Matt "LOTRgolfer" Schliebe all the way to 18.

Looking forward to many more GK/SCGA events, as well as meeting more friends and much more golf!

Where did you all get that info from?

I don't have an official handicap is that the greenskeeper tracker?

I was trying to put that list together but between my different credit cards, venmo, memory for bets won I gave up after 4 months.

I have you all beat thus far: Based on my average looks like I'm in the area of 140+ rounds played this year. **Many of those are twilight so not a full 18** (Moving to scottsdale single not knowing anyone has it perks in regards to golf time)

I bet sixpez and rat patrol have played a ton more.
