  1. So the new handicap system did away with ESC but you still have to write down your actual score for each hole during a round, right? If I make a 9 during a round I still have to use that for my gross score. It only gets adjusted when going into ghin. I don't get to write a 7 on my scorecard.

  2. Never understood what the issue is with people trying to lower a handicap, if you only put in good rounds to lower your handicap its only going to effect that person if they don't perform to it. the people you want to worry about are the ones who don't put rounds in to have a high handicap to benefit their given strokes in a match.

  3. Been using the WHS since inception and I’ve only had one PCC adjustment due to the poor conditions. In Scotland where I play the weather can be extremely difficult to contend with for a large part of the season. How is this going to be addressed from next year?
