Handicap Corner

April 1 is right around the corner. It may still seem like winter, but in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut, April 1 is the official start of USGA handicap season.  You must post all scores played in these states from that date on, as long as you played according to the rules of golf with at least one other player.  The handicap seasons in Vermont, Maine and upstate New York start April 15.  If you're lucky enough to escape some or all of the winter, you must post all eligible scores from states that have longer USGA handicap seasons.  States that have a year-round season include those on or below a line that extends from Virginia through Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, southern Utah,   southern Nevada and California.  If you are also a member at another club and that club is a member of the USGA GHIN handicap system, you should have only one GHIN number for both clubs. If you have multiple GHIN numbers see Tom Sullivan or your other club to get the accounts merged.  Any scores you post at your second club should automatically adjust your handicap index at Wyantenuck.  If your second club is not a member of the GHIN system (some Florida clubs fall into this category), you need to post your scores twice -- into your local handicap system and online into the GHIN system (at www.mgalinks.org).
