Mine stayed the same 9.7 to 9.7.

I too received an email from our Pro stating that the GHIN system is down and that the GHIN people are working on it.

As an old IT guy, I figured that trying to roll out a world wide system in one day was next to impossible. Way too many things to go wrong.

It doesn’t matter.  The raw scores are irrelevant.  Only the differentials matter, and those remain the same, as calculated by the rules in effect at the time.

Well, they're really only rolling it out in the USGA areas, but that's still a big thing.  And I bet that GHIN had more traffic in the past few hours than at any time in its history, as we all try to find out what the new version is like.

An update, for me both the phone app and the website are up and allowing posting.  I checked a couple of courses in NC, and they DO have the data required for hole-by-hole posting ready to go.  Virginia is not as ready.  I haven't checked a lot of course, so I don't know it that's true for all, but the two I checked weren't ready to allow hole by hole posting.

Oops, let me edit this.  At least a few of the NC courses show the holes in what seems to be a random order.  They're not quite ready yet either.  Still, the data appears to be there.

I haven't played since April (injury) but I got .2 strokes better.  Perhaps if I don't play for 4 years I'll be scratch...

 

P.S.  I have the GHIN app for my phone and when I installed the app update I lost my entire list (40 - 50) of "partners" and their handicaps.  Even Donald Trump was on there.

It’s busy. People are pounding it.

I was a pounder.  When I updated and lost my list of "Partners" I emailed the USGA and heard back in 3 minutes!  They told me to take it up with my state association.

Actually, as a smart move, they should have rolled it out to the areas that are in their active season, and let us be the guinea pigs, and flush out the bugs. People that can't post for another 2-3 months would have a much smoother ride.

Mine went from 7.9 to 8.1.  The recent scores were pretty consistent so going from 10 to 8 didn't change things much but removing the 0.96 factor did, by 0.2 overall. No biggie.  My app (NCGA) is not available to download yet in the App store, so I posted online and my course was not available for HBH posting, so I just entered the total (no net double bogey adjustment needed)...

The problem is that you can still post scores to your handicap even if your state is inactive. If I go to Las Vegas and play, I would have to post that score even though Colorado is inactive.

    • I am having problems transitioning between hitting my Driver and Irons.  When I hit my driver (on the screws) I tend to top  or blade my irons.  When I hit my irons flush, I tend to have issues finding the tee ball with my driver.  Any ideas?
    • The FO video helps. If I were you, I would: Do a lot days 1-5 from https://golfevolution.com/30-day-plan/. Add an avatar. Post in some other topics and get to know some of the people here. Post regularly here showing yourself doing the drills in a few minutes a day at home.
    • Looks better, but think about more weight shift forward on the downswing from the top to about A6. In your chip/punch drills, your weight is shifting forward. Try to get that same feel from A4 to A6. I’ve been doing this drill below since I went to Erie. Take it to the top, stop, shift weight forward so the left hip is over the ankle and let arms fall to A6. Then relax a bit (relaxed muscles are fast muscles) and draw back. Punch forward and stop at A9. For me the focus is getting the left hip to snap back faster. For you, it would be first to get the weight forward feel going.
