Handicaps By State
By Kickntrue on 4/3/08
We decided to take a look at oobgolf user's handicap indexes by state. I'm not sure we can make any absolute conclusions about anything from that data except that it is interesting to look at. Oh- and that people from Rhode Island need to invite better golfers to the site... you're embarrassing yourselves.

Actually, there is a little more I can say. For instance, even though we have over 25k rounds of data we only have 2 users who have set their location to the state of Nevada. One of them is REALLY good. Most of you out there have not set, your location. I'd encourage you to go edit your profile and add more information for us.

To do that, Log In and go to your "My Game" page. On the left hand side bar you should see "Edit Profile" under Actions. Fill that out so we can make better data in the future. Thanks!
