    Re: Non Qualifiers

    In Nov when the fairways become difficult to define our Parkland course goes to Non-Q Comps & 'Exceptional Winter Rules' ie. Pick-n-place on short mown & clean & drop from knee height in the rough. We also utilise Winter H/caps which are adjusted using CONGU rules.... unfortunately playing too many singles in my view.
    2Blue H/cap started on 9.9... 45 Q Comps later I'm on 10.3

    It may be something to do with exactly how the question or discussion is worded and exactly how the response is worded.

    A good 100yds, maybe more. Its a shame as it turns a good risk/reward par 5 into a short by par 4 standards hole, but thats what you've got to expect if you want a good putting surface in the summer

    Handicap 18. Bag full of Taylor Made with a bit of Dunlop thrown in.

    If its over 100 yards the SSS must be reduced by 1

    Surely that is at odds with:

    17.3/1 Adjustment of Handicaps in Non-Qualifying Competitions
    Q. The Handicap Committee in our club has taken the decision to make competitions Non
    Qualifying for the duration of the preferred lie period. Resulting from this decision a number of
    competitors who played below the course SSS in such competitions are seeking a reduction in
    their Exact Handicap. Is this permitted?
    A. It is a fundamental tenet of the UHS that handicap adjustments can only be applied in Qualifying
    Competitions when handicaps are adjusted, upwards and downwards as appropriate, in relation
    to the CSS. To create a situation where handicaps can only be reduced, would distort the
    balance on which the system is based. To reduce the handicaps of those players scoring below
    the SSS in Non-Qualifying Competitions is considered to be an unacceptable abuse of the
    system. To permit the UHS to operate as intended, all competitions should be run, whenever
    possible, as Qualifying Competitions
    . A number of dispensations for winter play have been
    granted by CONGU® to encourage this, including preferred lies and use of artificial mats.

    I know it says "should".

    No question asked, more a statement from both authorities during a CONGU seminar.

    They use the word 'should' to give the flexibility that clubs wanted.
