PostSubject: Changes to the USGA Handicap   Wed Nov 25, 2015 9:02 am

Have you guys heard the new changes to the USGA handicap system?
http://www.usga.org/articles/2015/11/key-changes-to-handicap-system-for-2016.html

One of the significant changes is this:
 - Playing alone and neccessary peer review
To further support the key System premise of peer review, scores made while playing alone will no longer be acceptable for handicap purposes. This change underscores the importance of providing full and accurate information regarding a player’s potential scoring ability, and the ability of other players to form a reasonable basis for supporting or disputing a posted score. (Section 5-1: Acceptability of Scores)

The Canadian PGA had rejected it. Let's see who else will follow, any comments from the R&A and any of our own Singapore golf clubs reject it.
