Well its been about a year since I picked up the game and went from a 30+ handicap to an 8 handicap. All I can say is, we just scratched the surface! Im totally hooked and love golf so much. Were any of you able to dramatically improve over the pandemic?

Very impressive! I started during b-school, barely touched the clubs once I started consulting, but started playing a ton during the pandemic. Worked my way to a 16-handicap and would love to get to single digits over the next few years.

Nice work! What are you tips for getting your handicap down? I’ve played consistently for a year and have gone from +million to 18. Feel like I’m plateauing a bit.

funny

At 18 youre averaging a bogey every hole. So its either your ball striking or your short game. So evaluate your game...are you losing most strokes on bad chips and missed putts or are you an inconsistent ball striker? Do you have trouble hitting greens? Do you often three putt? You need to identify the area where you lose strokes in a round. Go get a couple lessons. Having someone that knows golf look at your swing is invaluable and you will learn so much.

I started playing in May of last year. Prepping for a Sept 2020 trip to Pinehurst. Went from a 30 handicap to 17 over the course of the year, and actually went back to Pinehurst in April and shot 94 on No. 2. I am an addict and I now plan on taking my golf clubs wherever I go. My handicap. I wish I had started playing before I was 37!!

Very true!

Nice work OP!

I’m there with you, totally hooked. I picked golf back up last year after a 13 year gap. Was able to go from mid-high 90s to a consistent mid-80s. From the comments it sounds like I’ll need to get some lessons to get into the 70s.

I wouldnt say you need lessons but you definitely need to practice effectively and look at your game critically to figure out where youre losing most strokes

Went from 22 GHIN to 13 past year

Hello all! I am an MBA in Accounting graduate who has had a few AR jobs in my past professional career and in my current role, I do GL postings and reconciliations and ensure everything for my assigned account is entered and posted to the GL. I really want to transition fully into the Accounting world but when I apply for Staff Accountant jobs (in my mind a step above entry-level), I don't get many calls. What am I doing wrong? What should I be applying for with my education and experience?

Why do people want to work for UMM/MF? I feel likes it’s a rat race follow the heard mentality with little long term upside (you get paid a bunch for two years but then what?). I’m really keen to go the MM but feel like I’m making a mistake the way my friends talk about it…. In my mind a small younger growing fund is such a better opportunity — more learning, exposure, promotional potentially, and, hopefully, culture. What am I missing?
