——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-Handicap News from Chairman Gary Lennon and Committee members Chuck Bija and Bud Slobodian:
The newly-restructured Handicap Committee consists of Gary Lennon (Chairman), Chuck Bija and Bud Slobodian. With the Men’s Club Board’s help and direction, the Committee is hard at work prioritizing their functions – stressing issues that impact the way we play here at PVCC and the way we structure our tournaments. All this needs to happen while maintaining compliance with the SCGA/USGA.
The basis of having a fair and equitable Club Handicap System lies in the members’ hands. Individuals must post their scores in an accurate and timely fashion. Since 1/1/2020 when the USGA adopted The World Handicap System (including updating a player’s index daily), a “timely fashion” means you must post your score the day you play.
A recent review of our active members shows that there are many players who are not currently posting in a timely fashion. This may be caused by the year of the Pandemic, or the fact that you have to wear a mask to go to the posting kiosk in the Men’s Locker Room, or maybe you’re having technical difficulties with the mobile app or on-line software at home. All of these issues can easily be overcome. Just ask for help. The bottom line is, as PVCC Men’s Club Members – with official GHIN indexes – it is our responsibility to post scores accurately and timely.
Questions or comments can be addressed to Gary Lennon (631-707-4772) or (email@example.com) or the other Handicap Committee members.
