What does the M mean on the GHIN website.

Recommended Posts

Can any one please tell me what the M means next to the 11.1 in the top right corner.

I know the 11.1 is the lowest in the last 12 months, but what does the M stand for?

At our club, the M stands for: M Manual Adjustment by Handicap Committee under Section 10.3e and 8.4c.

I only noticed it appear this year, when I printed out my label last month, it showed it as 11.1M. I asked two of the guys in the pro shop and they didn't know either.

From GHIN

Now try and think, why would the handicap committee change my index?

It likely came because your tournament score just came off your list of 20. Thing is, I think the "R" should catch you if the case was your tournament scores were too good. I guess your handicap committee is very vigilant and adjusted you anyways. Our handicap committee goes back 13 months on T scores, the GHIN only goes back 12. The theory of our club was that the tournament you are playing in should include last years score. They adjust folks from time to time. Sounds like you should call up your handicap committee and see what they say.

I accidentaly let my status get to inactive when I forgot to pay my dues in time.  When I finally paid them and my index was active again I had an M next to it for a little bit.

Basically, that's the same thing that happened to me. Our club members don't have to pay the dues (I think the club pays it for us), we just have to go into the clubhouse that has the computer in it, (we have five clubhouses) show them our new membership card for the year and they update the GHIN membership for us. I believe the guy in the clubhouse forgot to do it.

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
