  • NEW RULES OF HANDICAPPING NOW IN EFFECT!

    On 1/1/20, the new Rules of Handicapping were introduced in the United States as part of the World Handicap System that will be adopted by countries all over the world.
     
    Both score posting services GHIN and GolfNet are now available for entering your scores. The posting location for either service (mobile app or online) will be the same as it was prior to the update, but the posting screens will have a completely new look and some additional features.
     
    Maximum Allowed Score for Posting
    Starting in 2020, the maximum score you can post on any hole is a NET DOUBLE BOGEY. In other words, the maximum score for each hole is Double Bogey + any Handicap Strokes applied on that hole based on your Course Handicap.
     
    If you use the hole by hole posting option, the system will automatically calculate and make the adjustment for you based on the tees you selected. This is the recommended method for posting all scores.
     
    If you post total scores only (9-hole or 18-hole), you will need to adjust each hole score on your own before posting. To do this, you must first determine your Course Handicap and then note on your scorecard where you receive strokes. Adjust any hole scores down to the maximum allowed and then total your score. You may use the Course Handicap Calculator found at usga.org and will need to know your Handicap Index, the Course Rating and Slope for the tees you played, and the Course Par .
     
    Or, if you like to do the math, here is the new Course Handicap formula:
    Handicap Index x (Slope Rating/113) + (Course Rating - Par)
    Example: 26.2 x (126/113) + (72.1 – 72) = 29.31 rounded to 29.  
     
    You receive 1 stroke on each hole plus one additional stroke on the 11 holes that are rated as most difficult.
     
    Handicaps Now Updated Daily
    Your handicap index will update EACH DAY you post a score rather than twice each month. You should post your scores immediately after completion of each round and no later than midnight of the day you played. 
     
    Questions? Email handicap@lpgaamateurs.com. For more information about the World Handicap System and the new Rules of Handicapping go to usga.org

Jeannie Musterman Volunteer of the Year Award

For much of our early history, Jeannie served as a dedicated and passionate volunteer. To honor our friend and longtime Executive Womens Golf Association member Jeannie Musterman, we started an Outstanding Volunteer Award to be presented to a Chapter member who exemplifies her qualities in exceptional volunteer participation and leadership. Jeannie was a no-nonsense, task orientated member who never hesitated to take on any opportunity to help her fellow members. Through her volunteer efforts she demonstrated to us all her love for the game of golf and compassion to help others.

The Jeanne Musterman Outstanding Volunteer Award is voted on by the membership and awarded each year at our End of the Year Celebration.

Congratulations to Marie Tucker - our 2019 JM Outstanding Volunteer Award recipient!
