This month we respond to media articles concerning some Golfers manipulating their handicaps to win competitions.
With the first month of 2014 behind us, and with all of us back into the swing of things both work and golfing wise, it’s time to look back at 2013 and share a few interesting stats on how the year unfolded. We also explore the topic of handicaps becoming invalid and being shown as N/A.
This month we cover the significant handicap changes that were implemented over the past three years and provide you with a sneak preview of our new Golfer Login section which is due to go live soon.
In this month’s news we advise of the South African Golf Association's (SAGA) decision to follow the lead of major golfing countries and license the United States Golf Association (USGA) course rating system, and discuss the importance of peer review as the main control in the handicap system.
This month we give you the latest handicap statistics for the period 1 January to 30 June 2013 as well further insight into why golfers need to adjust their handicaps when playing a competition off a tee with a different Standard Rating from the rest of the competition field.
This month we unveil the new SAGA Handicap card, remind you about the recent changes made to the SAGA Handicap system and give you the results of the golfer survey which we ran at the beginning of this year. We also highlight the reasons for the need to adjust handicaps when using different tees and introduce you to a new partner focused on providing all card holders with great deals on golf equipment and accessories.
This month we remind you to please assist the SAGA by completing our online Golfer Survey, we look at some interesting scoring statistics from 2012, discuss our long-term study of Better Ball competition winners and encourage you to take advantage of the final days of the Castle Lite Challenge.
