Qeu Rafa Nadal he is a great fan of golf is well known. The manacor takes advantage of any gap in the calendar to take his clubs out for a walk, like this weekend in the V Hexagonal Circuit Test – Autovidal, which has been held at the T-Golf & Country Club, in Calvi.
The thirteen-time winner at Roland Garros already recently shone in the Balearic Golf Championship, where he concluded fourth.
On that occasion he came to lead the tournament, leaving samples of his expertise, and this weekend he was second, further improving his handicap, to such an extent that, at least from a theoretical point of view, their level is already comparable to that of professionals.
The hndicap measures a player’s level of play. The maximum is 54 for youngsters, 48 for fingerlings, 42 for infants and 36 for the rest of the categories.
What does this mean? That if you start playing golf tomorrow your hndicap will be 36, which implies that in a par 72 start with 108 strokes. This allows players of different levels to compete in the same tournament.
Nadal has improved so much that his current handicap is already +0.3. The professionals do not have a handicap but if Nadal competes against them he will not start with an advantage.
