USGA to GA (Golf Australia) Handicap

Hi all,

Have recently moved from San Diego to Perth, Western Australia (missing Torrey baaaad   🙂 )  Maintained a USGA handicap for a number of years over there - is there any way to convert that to a GA handicap or do I need to 'start' again with 3 cards?

Cheers, Ben

Check on Page 22 here:

I didn't read it in great detail, but it looks like you can "import" scores from your USGA handicap record.

Thanks Dave, much appreciated.  Not quite sure what you're seeing on page 22 but I can see mention of "recognised overseas equivalent" handicap which sounds like it should put me on the right track.

Cheers, Ben

That's what I was seeing, that paragraph makes it seem as if at least part of your score history could be used.  If I remember right, GA handicaps are based much more on competition scores than the USGA system requires, so they may not want to take ALL of your scores, but at least its a start.  Enjoy what's left of your summer!

    • A couple death shots from today's round. First one was death of my driver (shaft). The shaft snapped on a routine swing about an inch above the ferrule. Wasn't a chunk, or contact off the heel/hosel area, no idea what happened. Impact felt weird, and then the driver head was hanging a bit funny, and was still partially connected, but the shaft was clearly toast. Contacted Cobra customer service, and hopefully I can get a new shaft sorted out under warranty since the club is only ~6 months old. Second one was on #17. I hit my approach shot to the green which missed about a yard right, kicked right off a slope, and landed right behind an old stump with tall grass growing all around it. If it lands 2 feet right or left, it's a pretty easy pitch onto the green Perspective on the photo isn't great, but to go at the hole the ball would basically need to pop straight up, and the stump is obstructing any type of follow through. The only chance I had was to stub a wedge into the ground behind the ball and try to pop it up over the stump. Didn't work and the ball ricocheted back about 3-4 yards, where I put the next one on the green, and 2 putted for 6.
    • Hmm.. yeah. Well let's see what we get. 
    • Day 323 Played 18 today. Started off hitting the ball really well, and felt like I was going to have a solid day of ballstriking. Then the shaft of my driver snapped on the third hole on a routine shot, and I mentally checked out after that. At least I got a lot of good practice hitting 3W today.
    • Get’n those bad ones out early - it’s all about peaking at the right time 
    • As a 53 year former resident of Ohio and a graduate of THE Ohio State University, I would like to play next year if your rules allow.
