Hello THMGC members, It is my job to communicate handicap rules to you according to the USGA.
2016: Playing alone and necessary peer review: To further support
the key System premise of peer review, scores made while playing
alone will no longer be acceptable for handicap purposes. This change
underscores the importance of providing full and accurate information
regarding a player’s potential scoring ability, and the ability of
other players to form a reasonable basis for supporting or disputing
a posted score. (Section 5-1: Acceptability of Scores)
All scores for handicap purposes, tournament, or non-tournament are subject to the application of Equitable Stroke Control (ESC)
Before posting a score, you are required to adjust individual hole scores using the ESC Guidelines below.
