  • A big change is coming. For 2019 we had changes to the rules of golf. For 2020, changes are coming to the golf handicap system. Our traditional handicap systems are being replaced by a unified World Handicap System. There are changes that will affect everyone. The December 15 GHIN update will be the last for the current system. Beginning December 31, all score posting will be suspended through January 6, 2020. During that week, all previous handicap providers will changeover to the single, unified WHS.
    This "dark period" means those who play golf at venues enjoying a year-around season will need to hang onto their scorecards for posting when WHS goes live. Once the new system is implemented, you are likely to see your Handicap Index change. This will be due to the new system utilizing your last eight low scores rather than your last ten.
    Those using GHIN will notice both the Web interface and the app will change. When you first log in to the mobile app you will be sent to your App Store for the new interface. GolfNet will continue to provide handicap services to the LPGA Amateurs membership, although the new posting interface may be delayed when WHS goes live, per Jeanne Biggerstaff. Expect to save more "dark period" scorecards. There are more changes to the ways we'll post scores and our handicaps will be computed. If you'd like to get a head start, the USGA has provided a great resource for learning about the World Handicap System.
