Last Ace of the Decade ? 
Hole_in_OneWe almost never have local Hole in One's posted after the Middle of November, but with Mother Nature's Christmas Gift of Golf Weather, we had one when Steve Broach aced the #5th Hole on the Dales Course at Community the day after Christmas.

With the weather forecasted to be nice through Sunday, I wonder if Steve's ace will hold up as the last one of the decade?

WHS Change Summaries 
Subject #4: Limit on Upward Movement of Handicap Index (Cap)
OLD WAY:  There is no restriction on the upward movement of a Handicap Index built into the calculation. 
NEW WAY: A “Soft Cap” and “Hard Cap” will be included within the Handicap Index calculation. The Soft Cap will slow upward movement by 50% if a 3.0 stroke increase takes place within a year. The Hard Cap will prevent upward movement beyond 5.0 strokes.  
WHY: There’s no limit on the amount by which a player’s Handicap Index can decrease, but the Soft Cap and Hard Cap will ensure that a temporary loss of form doesn’t cause a player’s Handicap Index to increase to a level inconsistent with their demonstrated ability.
