When is handicap verification and course assignment happening?
ThanksJuly 23, 2017 at 8:43 pm #38840Jon CraigParticipant
On 8/15 the last revision is in. They send you a form via e-mail. You give them your low 12 month index and some other info. On about the 21st you get your course assignments.July 24, 2017 at 10:58 am #38847Harry (The Hack) RadleyParticipant
Dont forget that you have to SELF POST last years rounds. The WAM doesnt not post 3200 x 4 scores it would take forever. The responsibility is yours. I have actually saw someone DQ’d last year when it was deemed that they falsified their handicap by not posting last years good rounds.
Just a work of advice so you can avoid any embarrassing situationsJuly 24, 2017 at 1:17 pm #38848Jon CraigParticipant
Not only that make sure and make them tournament scores. I post when I get back to the room. Also make sure you use ESC. I’m between an 11 and 20 so 7 is the most I can take on a hole. Harry being scratch can only take a double.July 24, 2017 at 3:59 pm #38851Joe BuschParticipant
Gotta stop playing rounds till August 15th, index is down 5+ strokes and falling fast…July 25, 2017 at 10:34 am #38859Terry CorneliusParticipant
I think it’s too late, Joe. Pretty sure you get your lowest handicap over the last 12 months.July 25, 2017 at 2:35 pm #38864Joe BuschParticipant
Yeah, I know but is amazing how much better I am playing right now, just hope I can keep it up. Almost every score I have recording in the last 6 weeks has knocked my index down 1/2 a stroke. I just have to make sure that game shows up in Myrtle.

Joe just keep playing, but play by yourself or find a course that does not have a slope and rating. Those rounds can’t be posted. lolJuly 25, 2017 at 4:50 pm #38867Henry ZeberkiewiczParticipant
Joe – Be careful. Remember if you play well you get an adjustment and if you play very well you get a DQ.August 1, 2017 at 8:55 am #38987Richard Reid SrParticipant
I have played several years, super senior now 78. I have never seen a handicap raised because
one score is much high. Why do they not adjust handicaps upward———-.?August 1, 2017 at 3:18 pm #39029Jay SeifertParticipant
Richard – Not certain if you may have been trying to joke or not but a Handicap is not an “average” of scores. Rather, it is a representation of the BEST you are likely capable of achieving. That definition in and of itself is a clear indication of why scores are never “adjusted upwards” because to do so would be the opposite of this benchmark’s objective.
