Playing Handicap

Only 40 days to go!
Yes, 2 November is fast approaching and will be on us before you know it!
We are nearly at the end of the WHS teach-in modules (last one next week) and this week's segment focuses on Playing Handicap.
The four most important aspects of Playing Handicap are :
* It is only used for competition purposes
* It ensures equity to calculate competition results (via Handicap Allowances)
* Golfers do not need to do anything to calculate it (it is generated before their round)
* Golfers should continue to play in the mindset of their Course Handicap in competition rounds
