World Handicap System Now Out (2020)

Not sure anyone will know this as it might be app specific.....I have the Golf Canada app so always posted my scores there. However, this year I didnt pay for my club so membership expired a few days ago. I'm not sure I will do the public player route this year. Not sure I see the value....

I still enter my scores in the app anyway though as I like the app for record keeping. Would my scores entered still count for PCC measurement?

So I've had 5 unusually good rounds in June and have noticed two things:

  1. Stating the obvious, since it is now best of 8 instead of 10 your handicap can move down much faster than before.
  2. My handicap is now .4 better than it was under the old system - that's the highest differential I've seen so far.

It can. In reality it doesn’t much. No 0.96 either.

It may take a week or a month before the USGA system Admin removes your Membership.
I doubt the software program will remove you from the system automatically.

You can check your score history to see if they are entered into the system.

At what point does the "unusual" become the "usual"?  Get used to being a "4" and update your "Profile" index! 😉

I'll update to "6" since that's where I've been most of the two years.  Let's see how July plays out before believing that today's 4.4 isn't a fluke.

I mean not that it matters because I only use it for myself. But my handicap after my last round, the grint rated at 15.6 replaced a round rated at 19.0 the other seven scores remained the same and my handicap moved up from a 16.5 to a 16.8. Dont know much about the handicap system just wondering if this is normal and something else is involved.

All handicaps take the best 8 of your last 20 rounds, TheGrint included.    Look at the differentials, you'll probably see that the new one replaced a lower score of the 8.   That's why your handicap moved from 16.5 to 16.8.

Yes something else is involved. Your handicap should not have increased when one of the used scores decreased.

The Grint uses some 2019 scores differently and has a few issues with nine-hole scores.

Get a GHIN number.

I have an eClub.

Do you have to start fresh or can you put in back logged scores? Also is there a link to the eclub thing by chance.

It's more a matter of the Grint kind of having a bug in how they're calculating some things, I think.

Yeah I think so as well, last night it told me I was trending to 16.1 which the averages equal out to, but today it was 16.8. Like i said not really a big deal because it's just for me to look at, but was just wondering if anyone had that happen before. Only matches I play that matter are some money matches with buddies.

    • If only there were decades of tournament data that could provide statistical clarity to the question. 
    • I have had lessons in the past. In addition to this ive read countless ideas on the swing by so many people and watched gold constantly. When i was good at golf, i had a swing where i attacked the ball very much from the inside and played with a strong draw. My grip was odd...the left hand pretty neutral but the right hand strong. The swing was very short and had a very fast tempo, not dissimilar to someone like Nicholas Thompson off the PGA tour. I got down to a 2 handicap at lowest, and usually a low 3 handicapper hovering around 2.5, 2.6 index. I wanted to get better as i never felt i hit the ball that well, so i sought out lessons and i saw the trackman numbers and such. We worked on getting the grip better, actually aligning to the target better (whereas before i would just kind of walk up to the ball, shuffle around a bit till i felt it was ok and hit), i started really focusing on things that i still think are good like alignment, routine etc. And the swing path became less inside out. For a while i played great, then i started getting steeper and steeper and hitting disgusting pull slices all day. THEN, it started getting to the point where, my mind wouldnt let me take the club away. I would do all kinds of crazy stuff like the club would bounce up and down and my takeaway totally frozen even though pros recommended trigger moves etc. Then because the game wasnt enjoyable because of the yipping, id start taking time off because i didnt want to go through with all of this and then, i started losing my flexibility, getting bigger etc. Now I just dont want to go because the only emotions i ever feel are frustration, resentment, annoyance, wanting it to be over after 10 mins and feeling like theres 4 more hours left etc. If you could take me back to a time where i did not yip, i would play the game again and absolutely love it, but its never ever coming back. Ive tried everything. It HURTS. Ive never been any good at ANYTHING else in my life. I put everything into golf from the age of 12 up to about 25. The last 10 years has just been too much for me. i just cant take it
    • So do you need the club that fills your stated clubs to hold greens (are you going to hit into the greens / all carry)? Or are you fine with some roll out? Hold greens > properly fitted hybrid ~19/20 degrees loft. Some rolll out ok / does not hit directly into a green > properly fitted 5 wood/~17-18 degrees loft. 
    • I would love to see Tiger start to use one of these  
    • First of all, nice job with getting a bit more on plane going back. The club isn’t going nearly as much to the inside which is good. I’d take screenshots of where you are at A2 and keep tracking that so you can be sure you are starting back on plane. Overall, you are trending the right way here! I don’t really think the head movement is anything to be focusing on. If anything, it is a symptom of the OTT move and not a cause. The more important thing to notice about the transition is the shoulder move and what exactly it is accomplishing and then working back from that a little bit to find the root cause. What I see is a shoulder move in transition that is a compensation for your pretty flat shoulder turn. Look at how flat your shoulders are at the top of the backswing and then look at how much steeper they get right after you start the transition. The answer to this might very well be what @iacas was suggesting by nudging you towards working on your torso turn in the early backswing. That should help get your shoulder turn to be a bit steeper. Before you start true downswing/transition thoughts or work: backswing, backswing, backswing.
