Many moons ago
From The Owl’s Nest
|Number 4 is the shy one. But we finally got him/her to at least photo bomb the picture.
Num 1: Come on number 4 show your face!
Num 2: Number 4 it is not that scary. It’s just a golf course.
Num 4: But why all the swearing?
|If he pulls off that shot I will swallow a chameleon…
Wow…… raw talent that man.
|Did you see that?
Our first owl in one!
|Would you suggest a soft 8 iron or a forced 9 iron?
With his golfing ability, no club would be the correct club!
The new World Handicap System
The tenets of the new system focus on three main objectives: to encourage as many golfers as possible to obtain and maintain a handicap; to enable golfers of differing abilities, genders and nationalities to transport their handicap to any course globally and compete on a fair and equitable basis; and to indicate with sufficient accuracy the score a golfer is reasonably capable of achieving on any course around the world, playing under normal conditions.
The new handicap system will be implemented in two phases. The first phase will be implemented on the 1st of October and the 2nd phase on the 1st of January 2020.The second phase is more technical but I will discuss this at a later date.
What do we have to know?
(a) An average-based calculation of a handicap, taken from the best eight out of the last 20 scores and factoring in memory of previous demonstrated ability for better responsiveness and control.
(b) A limit of Net Double Bogey on the maximum hole score. For example:
|Strokes per hole||0||1||2||3|
(d) Rounds must be open before play
(e) Scores to be entered before midnight of day played
(f) Match play scores must be entered for handicap purposes:
(1) If less than 14 holes played enter 9-hole score
(2) 14 or more: Complete card using par plus handicap strokes for holes not played and enter adjusted gross
(g) If 9 holes are played, the player must use the appropriate CH for the course they played.
