Game of cards
Ever look down an unfamiliar hole and have no idea what to do? Here’s a hint: Go to the scorecard. The handicap number assigned to a hole represents its difficulty relative to the other holes on the course from 1 (hardest) to 18 (easiest). If your own handicap doesn’t cover it – suppose your handicap is 12 and you’re on the fourth handicap hole – that’s a clue to play the hole more conservatively. According to the statistics, you’re not supposed to reach that green in regulation.
