The World Handicap System
Beginning in 2020 a brand-new set of Rules for Handicapping will be introduced globally.
Your Handicap Index may change - But that’s ok! Finally, players around the world will have an apples-to-apples handicap. Your new Handicap Index will be more responsive to good scores by averaging your EIGHT best scores out of your most recent 20 (currently, it’s 10 out of 20 with a .96 multiplier). In short, your Handicap Index will be determined by your demonstrated ability and consistency of scores. In most cases for golfers in the U.S., it will change less than one stroke.

Great Feats in Golf
We lost one of area's legendary players when Carl Bidwell passed this past week at the age of 83.  Carl won numerous championships both at NCR and throughout his many years of competitive play.  He was inducted in the Dayton Golf Hall of Fame in 1998 and routinely posted a score better than his age carrying a 7.1 index through his last rounds of golf in May.  
There are many hard courses in the Miami Valley and "of course" it is relative to the talent we have.  However, we bet most golfers would agree, the hardest course is the one between your ears. 

To take steps in improving your mental game, join us on Sunday, October 27th at NCR CC as we welcome internationally renowned sports psychologist, author and professional speaker Dr. Bob Winters
