Handicapping 101

Handicap_101

When players post scores using accurate course and slope ratings, the handicap index should represent the players scoring potential. To understand how this works and why you must post all your adjusted scores to have a valid index with the MWGA,  including the penalties for not being current and accurate, review the Handicap_Guidelines.

 

To help you understand how to get to the GAM website and to actually post a score, see GAM-Posting-Instructions

 

If that just wets your appetite for more knowledge and a more in depth understanding, read the USGA Handicap Manual.
