WHS – What’s the difference between the 3 Handicaps?
In the previous CONGU system players had one handicap – their Exact Handicap. With the move to the WHS, there are now 3 handicaps that players need to understand.
Going forward players will be required to have all 3 handicaps on their scorecard. The new scorecard design will have space for each handicap.
You will see all 3 handicaps when you sign into a competition on the computer or on your phone.
