Are better ball events ever HCP-counting? I didn't think any team-events were. 

Each national golf association decides which types of scores count for handicap.  In USGA areas, we record pretty much every format.  I know that in much of Europe, fourball scores are not counted, and in many areas match play scores are not counted.  This is one of the remaining differences within the WHS system.

I'm responding to a post from "Are you a Vanity Capper?" but think I am going in a direction more relevant to this thread.  Below is the comment from @DaveP043 that I am responding to.

I use the USGA GHIN Mobile App to post scores and cannot find anything in it to "Pre-register a round" nor to indicate my playing partner for them to be emailed for confirmation.  My understanding is that GHIN is from the USGA so I would expect it to "Comply".  Am I wrong that GHIN is USGA's site?

There is currently no requirement to pre-register.  I was trying to say that I would support a change from the USGA to do just that.  It would move us towards the rest of the world, and it would decrease the potential for a player to manipulate his handicap, as compare to our current system.

Got it.  I was worried I was missing something.  I get your point on integrity of the data but for me, the current system is fine.
