Best Answer

According to the USGA, the average handicap of the American golfer is 16.1 for men and 29.2 for women. These numbers have remained largely the same over the last 15 years despite significant technology advances with equipment. Perhaps we will see a difference in the future by addressing the way the body moves in the Golf swing. Susan Hill (
