    None of the players indexes have an ‘R’ next to it to identify that a reduction is in effect for the player. Is this a bug or did no one receive a reduction???

    Might individual chest I mlooked at showed me at 10.1 R because they used my low for 12 months. I’m currently a 11.7 with a WA index of 12+. I’m taking a hit but I still think this is the best way to get a level playing field. Good to finally meet Tom,s best friend.

    The definition of an R, is used by your handicap service (USGA /GHIN) when a golfer has a minimum of two eligible tournament score differentials that are exceptional, at least 3.0 better than the golfer’s handicap index. The two tourney scores are used from the previous 12 months. I would assume the WA did not use an R so there would not be any confusion about an R in your posted handicap.

    If you call up a flight on the course assignments page you will see a full list of everyone playing in the flight. There is a message at the top of the list that states “R – Reduced Handicap Index”. There is supposed to be a capital “R” next to the index if they have been reduced…and I think in the past there was a code somewhere explaining why they were reduced…i.e…no tournament rounds, not enough scores posted, etc., etc. Just wondering why it is not showing up………….

    Bob, call up your flight and look at the players. Your index doesn’t have an ‘R’ beside it. You were probably reduced because you have too many white golf shirts……………

    I have had internet problems for a couple days and was pulling up on my phone and my individual course assignment showed me at a 10:1 r. Can’t find it now but I bet you a S V junior invitational white shirt against a donut hole I SAW IT. Haha

    Tommy Biggs…What you have explained is what, as you said, USGA/GHIN do. However, in years past, if your handicap for the WA is lower than what you turn in or if you have reductions to the handicap you entered with because of the various things, explained on this site, which have resulted in a lower handicap…you index here has had “R” beside it. Again…this is totally different that what you and the USGA/GHIN describe.

    Bob, you are correct. In years past, if your submitted handicap is reduced by the WA, for whatever reason, it has shown “R” beside it.
    This year, my low index for the year thru GHIN is 10.6. However, because of my “stellar play” last year which did not result in finishing in the top 5…I have been reduced to 9.4. I fully expected to see R beside it but not this year. Too bad…it always gave us an idea of who has been reduced.
    BYW…see we are together again this year. 🙂

    Understood, I remember having my handicap reduced before for the WA and just did not remember seeing a R.

    I Was told a few years back that all international players are reduced 1 right off the top. I live in Canada and was reduced 1 for the first couple of years. Now my handicap factor is kept in the US by GAM. Since then I have not been reduced because of that reason. My factor for last 12 months is 9.6 but because my 4 scores in the world Am last year were good they went by that and adjusted me to a 8.6. In reality I am playing to a 10.8.
