WHS - Transition Handicaps

Transition Handicaps 

In order to move from CONGU to WHS handicaps, all players' current Handicap Records will be reprocessed using the WHS principles. The calculation will identify the best 8 of the last 20 Qualifying Scores, if posted during the last 2 years, and factor in:

• The adjusted Gross Score (Score Differential)
• The Course Rating (or SSS)
• Any PCC (or CSS) adjustments
• The Slope Rating of the tees played

The above picture is an indication of what might happen to handicaps, but as it says it is very difficult to predict and aspects considered when the slide was designed may have changed.

If a player has submitted less than 20 scores in the last 2 years, the calculation will be done in a similar manner to the method of allocating new handicaps, as shown below.

Players will be able to see their expected Transition Handicap and their Low Handicap Index (Anchor Point) at the PSI screen when the handicapping software is updated around September 2020.

Players are encouraged to submit plenty of scores between now and November 2020 so that their Transition Handicap Index is a good reflection of current playing ability. 9 hole scores are acceptable and clubs are encouraged to run 9 hole competitions to help with this.

If a player has no Qualifying Scores posted in the last 2 years, the Transition Handicap will be calculated on the basis of the 3 lowest scores being equal to their current playing handicap. So a player with a 20 handicap will have scores of 20, 20 and 20 on their Scoring Record and their handicap at Transition will be (20 - 2) = 18. 

So there's an incentive to get 3 Qualifying Scores in this year!

Once again if you would like to see what your Handicap Index would be if the WHS were introduced now please email Glenn McGlade and he will run it through his calculator and let you know in due course.
