A golf handicap is calculated by compiling a golfer’s recent scores and comparing those scores against the difficulty of the courses that were played. For instance, a golfer who shoots 90 on a course rated 72 is an 18 handicap, while a golfer who shoots 80 on a course with a rating of 68, would be a 12 handicap.
A player with a 10.0 Index would have a Course Handicap of 14 and would get 23 strokes.
If you want to be considered good you at least need to have an official handicap. The survey found golfers around 16 to 20 handicap to be the average golfer. The USPAG puts the “official” average at a 15 handicap. This would mean a player who typically scores around 90 on the average course.
18You can post 9-hole or 18-hole scores. Once you have scores posted, your golf handicap will be a number. The lower the number, the better the golfer. For example, if you typically shoot around 90 on par 72 golf courses, your golf handicap would be around 18.

If you have the right equipment and a great lie, the ball may go closer to 100 yards which is very good distance. In addition to the problem with equipment, sometimes there is an issue with the tee box as well. Some clubs have the ladies’ tee as the most forward tee.
What is the average swing speed of a senior golfer? Anyone over 50 belongs to the senior golfer category. Unlike women, who, on average, have a maximum 60 mph swing speed, men usually have a minimum 75 mph swing speed, with 90 mph being their average.
A 70-year-old man should be able to hit a seven iron roughly 135 yards. The 135-yards shot will vary depending on the use of steel or graphite golf equipment. Graphite shafted golf irons tend to go a bit further and make it easier for the senior golfer to launch the ball higher as well.
