2020 has more changes to golf. The new World Handicap System
The idea is to make handicaps universal throughout world in case you have a match with a Brit, Scot or Canadian.
New formula is Course Handicap = Handicap Index x (Slope Rating/113) + (Course Rating - par).
GHIN as of today is wrong, it lists white tees as a PAR 70, so SUBTRACT 2 strokes to your handicap until it is fixed.
This means your Handicap will be lower than you are used to. So will everyone else. Also, handicaps will be updated every time you post. We will have obvious rules on that (like post it right after the round please). It will also only use 8 best of 20 scores. This will also lower your handicap. So will everyone else. There are other factors worked in like weather/conditions. Those of you who want to know, here are the slope and rating from each tee box.
Example of 14.3 Index
14.3 x 129/113= 16.32 + 73.7 = 90 - 72=18
Index Men Rating Slope HDCP
14.3 Blue 73.7 129 18
14.3 White 70.2 125 14
14.3 Gold 66.7 116 9
