Handicap Report October 2013


Handicap Report By George Perot

The USGA Handicap System enables golfers of all SKILL levels to compete on an equitable basis. (Please remember that statement) The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. The System provides a fair Course Handicap for each player, regardless of ability, and adjusts a player’s Handicap Index up or down as the player’s game changes.

Two basic premises underlie the USGA Handicap System, namely that each player will try to make the best score at every hole in every round, regardless of where the round is played, and that the player will post every acceptable  round for peer review.  (At no time should your handicap give you an unfair advantage for winning) The player and the player’s Handicap committee have a joint responsibility for adhering to these premises.

We implemented a Tournament Handicap System and for the most part it is working very well.
