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!

    • Day 347 Did rehearsal backswing practice in patio door mirror. Then did some tempo drills with 7-iron hitting balls at about what felt like 75% speed. 
    • Day 2 Week 5 Worked on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 irons. Focus on that 3/4 swing and correct grip.  Finished up the session with my Driver 
    • I play local sports podcasts on a Bluetooth speaker in my cart, but only when playing by myself (which I usually do) or with my family for whom I know it doesn’t bother.
    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
