I have a handicap of 7.5 and shot 2 rounds way over that  a 108 and a 92. But it's still 7.5.  I admit I am bad at this game but I'm having fun. Just wondering about the handicap

Thanks for your help

In golf your handicap is based off your best 10 scores from your last 20 rounds. It's more complicated than that but that's the basics. Therefore you could shoot 200 twice and it wouldn't affect anything so long as you have 10 good rounds out of the last 20. If you have less than 20 (say 10 rounds) it's best 5 etc. Basically means that your worst scores are NEVER counted.
