Welcome to MorePars Golf!

This blog is devoted to sharing insights into how to become a better golfer. There are, of course, many blogs devoted to golf, but I think you will find if you follow this blog you will get a unique perspective on the true challenges for middle-aged golfers to lower their handicap.

As I begin this blog, my handicap is 15.3. Here is my handicap history over the last year:

10/17/2009 16.6
11/2/2009 16.6
11/16/2009 15.3

As you can see, it got as low as 14.9 and rose as high as 16.7. I play in 2 tours for amateurs in Charlotte – The Egolf Amateur Golf Tour and the Harris Teeter Senior tour. My scores are lower on the senior tour because the courses are shorter and I play tees that are 2 up from the tips (white tees). This makes my approach shots shorter and therefore I have a an easier time getting on the green in regulation.

I hope you enjoy this blog as I share my story and insights in how to lower your handicap and shoot More Pars!
