The will be the first time I am going to have a WA index. I asked a friend/WA-vet what mine would be and got an answer of 8. Who should I email to confirm this or could a WA staff member just post it here? I’m not to worried what it is, just want to start thinking about whether the group of us will play together or not.
ThanksApril 14, 2017 at 8:05 am #38117
Your friend was correct. 8 is the number. Anyone who ever needs this information is welcome to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post here if you don’t mind it being public.
To figure it out, take your best two of four differentials from your last years tournament (that number to the right of each score in your ghin) and average them. I only mention this because learning about differentials is key to understanding the handicap system as a whole!April 14, 2017 at 9:08 am #38119Harry (The Hack) RadleyParticipant
So what you are saying is that the onus is on ourselves to post last years tournament scores. If I dont do that then I will be deemed to have falsified my HCP and will be subject to DQ’d.

Have not posted my last years World Am scores. Apparently i can not find my individual hole scores to post using ESC. I can find total 18 for each course last year. Any idea how I can get these scores.April 16, 2017 at 7:35 pm #38127Rick KimbrellParticipant
I don’t ever remember a year when it was not up to us to post our World Am scores. I typically post mine immediately after the tournament round.April 18, 2017 at 3:14 pm #38163Jay SeifertParticipant
Ryan – You can simply request who you want to play with on your entry. The other person also MUST list you as well in order for you to be placed into the same flight. You would then naturally wind up in whichever flight was the lower of the two of you so no additional actions needed beyond that signup with th eappropriate requestApril 19, 2017 at 8:20 am #38170

Ya I know, we just have people in our group already playing up, some dramatically, so for them to play up even more might take some fun out of it for them. I will probably bite the bullet and just play up on my own and let the rest of them play closer to their handicaps. Just had such a good time with that crew over the years it will be hard to replacate.April 25, 2017 at 7:30 am #38220
Ryan – Not sure if this is appealing to you, but.. some of our larger groups (with wide age/handicap ranges) are planning to opt for the ‘just for fun’ flight. You are able to run your own tournament among yourselves by whatever rules you play at home and we still have 5 prize payouts.April 27, 2017 at 11:54 am #38246Ken DelaneyParticipant
Your WA index is just that (which is in fact, like Scott said, your (2) lowest differentials from the previous year).
Harry, the problem with not entering your tournament scores proactively is if your current index at home (Not the WA index), is lower than your WA index. Those unentered scores could affect your home index and make it lower or slightly higher.
If you perform OUTSTANDING in the WA like me every year, then you never have to worry about all the aforementioned LOL….. 😛
