|Last Ace of the Decade ? |
|We 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?
|Nominations Open for Dayton Area Hall of Fame|

|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. |
