Congratulations to Drew Oxley and Rachel Heck for being named the "Most Improved Golfers" at The Ranch during 2016. The USGA computes the most improved golfers based on a player's beginning and ending handicap index. The method takes into consideration the level of a player's improvement rather than the net change in handicap index.
Drew Oxley improved from a 19.9 index at the beginning of the season to a 13.7 index. His improvement factor was rated at 1.241, the highest among all male golfers at The Ranch.
Steve Fitzpatrick's improvement factor ranked second after he improved from a 6.8 to a 3.2 during 2016.
Rachel Heck adds to her outstanding calendar year with another honor after improving from a +3.1 index to a +5.1 index. Her final improvement factor was calculated at a 1.290, the highest of all golfers at Spring Creek Ranch.
Anna Heck, the youngest of the Heck family, had the second-best improvement factor with a 1.268. Anna improved from a 15.9 to a 10.0 handicap at the age of 12.
