Question: Last year I did not post any scores to GHIN due to an injury.  I have not yet posted this year.

i reactivated my GHIN membership today.  I have my. scorecards for all rounds this year going back to April 16th.

i know we are to post immediately, but I did not.

should I post my rounds from earlier this year or just start posting going forward?

If you have the scorecards and the dates that you played, I would post them. 

I don't know what the "official" right thing to do is, that's just what I would do.

The main reason you're supposed to post on the day you play is so that the PCC (if applicable) can be applied because I believe those are only applied when you post scores the day that you play them.

I agree, if you played by the rules, with someone else, in an acceptable format, post the scores.  If you want an official response, you should be able to write to your state golf association .

I know the appropriate thing to do is to post on the day you played, but I think posting after the fact is better than not posting at all.

There was a P.C.C. at Eagle Sticks Saturday of +1. I posted from the hotel Saturday night so I made my small contribution to the +1.

That may have been to offset my error in the HCPs for that day??? 😁

Yeah. It's helpful that you (general you, since you and I both did it, and I know @Hardspoon did, and I'm sure others did too) post the DAY OF and not wait until the next day or even later.

I posted as well, I hope most of us did.  I'm still not sure the PCC system makes a significant difference, but it certainly won't work as intended if golfers don't post on the day of play.

There was a PCC of +3 at Talamore the day I played in Pinehurst! Somehow that course was killing us all, lol. 

If it is still the best 10 out of 20, So, it would amount to .1. It matters more if you end up with like 5 out of 10 of your counted differentials having PCC. That could equal a full stroke. 

Yea, I think it will influence handicaps like 0 to let's say 2 for handicaps.

It changed to the best 8 of the last 20, in the 2020 changes.  When I attended a Handicapping Workshop in 2020, we were told that they anticipated that the PCC would apply in about 10% of the rounds.  That's about what I see now, maybe slightly more often since the algorithm was tweaked not long ago.  And remember, the PCC will adjust MOST of the scores on a given day towards the mean.  With a positive PCC (more high scores), most players scores wouldn't be in the best 8/20 even with the PCC, so the impact is nothing, although the few players who had a good day will see the impact on their HI increased.   I believe it will be very rare that a player has even two scores in their best 8 with any kind of PCC.

I've only seen one positive PCC since it began, a +3 during a tournament on a tough, firm course with the wind blowing at least 30 mph. A scratch golfer got so frustrated he pulled out after 9. Sadly, the +3 did nothing for me as I was a good 10-12 strokes above the score counting.

Currently 3 of my last 7 scores have a negative PCC. Of course, all 3 of those are in my best eight. I'm puzzled, as the wind was blowing pretty good on at least two of those rounds.

I guess someone decided to do more work for little benefit then. 

I might be the lucky one then. I have a +3 and a +1 on my counted scores.

Yeah, negative PCC days are more likely to be counted in the best 8, but the PCC decreases the downward impact of these scores, as it increases your posted differential.  As for the conditions, it really is funny how the scores posted don't always reflect what seem like tough conditions.

Its clear that you thrive in difficult conditions.

It's 8 of 20, and most of the times with PCCs aren't among the eight, so it has no effect on your index.

    • There's more grass in them now than shortly after the renovation. It grows over time. Cool. Here's the deal we'll make you. If you're right, we'll remove your restrictions. If you're wrong, you'll never again be permitted to whine about how "easy" a golf course played (particularly given that you wouldn't likely break 90 at it), and if you do, you're gone forever.
    • Looks alot  like those  "native areas" a few  years  back that were supposed to be tough but ended  up being  just another fairway shot  unless you were  very  unlucky and  got right  behind a tuft  of  grass. I  predict  -15 for the win. Someone will be  -8 at the end  of the day tomorrow.
