I'm not on the committee.

We use IG and can check any other member records via the website. (Although it does not shows GP rounds submitted directly tot he WHS portal via the app

I assume Scottish Golf works in the same way as England Golf and you can check a players record for your own club on that.

This is a main part of peer review.

You can see all the of rounds in IG that have been entered either on IG or EG apps. Look at the page which shows all the rounds and then click on the link top left "WHS® Handicap Index - n.n", the link is the n.n Handicap Index. Useful for checking how many qualifying cards someone has entered when they are being flagged by the competition software as not having sufficient as IG only looks at IG entered cards.

The Scottish golf website allows you to look up any players record - you’ll need to know a competition they have played in - and can then access their record from there. I think you can also search for a player and access their record that way too.

Since 1 Jan we've had 4 comps.

One chap has won 2 out of 4. He's only played in 2 of them!

He also won a hcp club knock out last year.

He used to be off about 4, now off 9 then 8. Clearly his handicap it too high.

Is there any mechanism to reduce his hcp under whs?
It doesn’t matter that he won 2 comps - what matters are his scores!

Still amazes me the conversations that go on about this...

"I had 39 points on Saturday, I won B flight but I've gone up...How come!?"

"What score did that replace?"

"What do you mean?"

"What score dropped off your last 20?"

"Oh, no idea. Where do I find that?"

":mad:...I'll look it up for you"

"How can you do that?"

"Club website. Also do you have the IG app on your phone?"

"The one with the bar balance on it?"

"Yeahhhh .... that one..."

"Yep here it is"

"Ok let's have a look"

"What are you looking at?"

"Your scores"

"Oh, are they on there?"

"Yeeeeeesssssss....here, look"

"Oh right, ummm what are the different colours? What are those yellow ones?"

"They're your counting scores, I mean your best 8 out of your last 20"

"Riiiiiight"


"Hang on a second, I just need to look at something on the club site....
OK found it.
So what's happened is, on Saturday your lost your oldest score out of your last 20 and it was a counting score. In fact, you lost a 43 points, that must have been that comp you won, right?"

"Oh yeah, the Joe Bloggs Salver, tough one to win that ;)....."

"Yeah ha ha. But anyway, you have lost a 43 points and replaced it with 39 points, it's actually done on gross but your round on Saturday was worse than the one you lost, so your average score differential is higher now, so your handicap has gone up..."

"Hmmmmmmmmmmm
But I won B flight, how come I've gone up....?"


"😱😱😱😱😱😱😱 I need a drink"
