Weekend Tournaments to use Golf Genius

The weekend tournament committee has begun using Golf Genius for real-time scoring. Please be patient as we go through the transition process. Also because of the transition, several 2020 tournaments will only use the World Handicap System course handicaps instead of the past Local Handicaps. Please see the information on downloading the Golf Genius App here or any APP store. If you have any questions, please see us in the office, thanks.

Congratulations to the team of George Blair, Bill Wilson, Randy Dorris and David Hudson, winners of the CMGC 2020 New Member Mixer.

George, Bill, Randy and David had a net score of 260 for the weekend. The team of Dave Watson, Greg Snowden, Ron Graham and Tony Tessicini came in second place.

More from Mike Stone, Handicap Chair re: World Handicap System

GHIN services are offline. Service will resume Jan. 6, 2020

From Jan. 1 to Jan. 5, 2020, all GHIN services will be unavailable to golfers nationwide as the USGA launches a revamped platform to accommodate the World Handicap System (http://www.scga.org/whs-hub) and provide a better score posting and handicap index experience. Score posting, access to score histories and Handicap Index lookup will be unavailable during this time. So, save your scorecards and we’ll be back to posting scores in no time!

World Handicap System

1. Your Handicap Index may change.

But that’s okay! Finally, players around the world will have an apples-to-apples handicap. Your new Handicap Index will be more responsive to good scores by averaging your eight best scores out of your most recent 20 (currently, it’s 10 out of 20 with a .96 multiplier). In short, your Handicap Index will be determined by your demonstrated ability and consistency of scores. In most cases for golfers in the U.S., it will change less than one stroke.

2. You need to know your Course Handicap.

In the new system, your Course Handicap will be the number of strokes needed to play to par. This will result in greater variance in that number and presents a change, as historically it has represented the number of strokes needed to play to the Course Rating. This is a good thing, as par is an easy number to remember. Target score for the day? Par plus Course Handicap. The Course Rating will now be inherent within the calculation to be more intuitive and account for competing from different tees.

3. Net Double Bogey.

The maximum hole score for each player will be limited to a Net Double Bogey. This adjustment is more consistent from hole to hole than the Equitable Stroke Control procedure. Net Double Bogey is already used in many other parts of the world and the calculation is simple: Par + 2 + any handicap strokes you receive.

4. Your Handicap Index will be revised daily.

One way that handicapping is being modernized is a player’s Handicap Index will update daily (which will provide a fairer indication of a player’s ability in the moment), if the player submitted a score the day before. On days where the player does not submit a score, no update will take place.

5. Safeguards in the new system.

The new system will limit extreme upward movement of a Handicap Index, automatically and immediately reduce a Handicap Index when an exceptional score of at least 7 strokes better is posted, and account for abnormal course or weather conditions to ensure that scores reflect when a course plays significantly different than its established Course Rating and Slope Rating.
