Tough to shoot your handicap


SOUTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – If you’ve ever played in a golf tournament that utilizes handicaps, you know that your “course handicap” can change depending on where you play. And because many of the courses in Myrtle Beach are difficult, many golfers are finding that their handicap this week is higher than they’re used to.

“People don’t realize how tough these courses are,” said 10-handicapper Peter Kuld. “You could be an eight-handicap at your home course and then come here and you’re a 10.”

Proof that no matter how good you think you might be, there’s a course in Myrtle Beach that could probably kick your butt.
