On January 1, 2020, the World Handicap System officially launched in the United States, delivering the first universal Rules of Handicapping for all golfers. For the first time in the U.S., every Handicap Index will now be computed through a centralized database to ensure consistency and integrity in every number.
On January 6th, golfers will receive their first revision under the World Handicap System. The new calculation will average the 8 best of your most recent 20 differentials. Because of the new calculation, your Handicap Index is likely to have a slight change.
