    World Handicap System

    http://www.englandgolf.org/news.aspx...ontitle%3dNews

    I just hope it's not based on the US method of every round counts even if it's 3 holes etc

    About time the slope system was included over here. Handicaps are truly portable then.

    If they started planning this in 2011, how long will it take them to implement it, considering they are talking about everyone using the same course rating system?

    I'm surprised the handicap system is not already universal. How are handicaps calculated differently around the world now?

    So... are we all getting a cut then?

    Callaway X2 Hot 3/5 Woods
    Callaway X2 Hot 3 Hybrid
    TaylorMade R11 Irons 4-SW
    Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2 Notchback

    Handicap: 2.5

    There is a reason why the Fairway Dodger hits it like a girl!

    Agree that it's sometimes nice to just play friendly games of golf for fun, without having to worry about your handicap. On the other hand, a valid CONGU handicap can be based on as few as 3 rounds a year. Either system can be manipulated by bandits! 🙄

    Is that how it works in America?

    Balls to that. I'll give up competitive golf if that's the plan.
    Some clubs
    Some baws
    Hunners of broken tees
    and a Snickers that was best before Oct 2011

    It's an average of your last 10 rounds or so I believe.
