How about a post on the theory of handicaps? Here is my question: Does our current handicapping system primarily reward inconsistent play? For example: if a player was so good that they shot 17 under par every time they went out, they would have little if any chance of winning. Is this a good thing? If we agree it isn't, is there any kind of fix to the problem?
Ah, but weather plays into it too, doesn't it? Presumably Mr. 17-under will have a better chance in more difficult conditions. So weather could even the scales a bit.
