|WHS-GHIN APP |
|For those of you somewhere warm, if you see something a little different when you post a score on the GHIN App beginning Monday, it won't be your mind playing tricks on you. The GHIN App is just one of the new features that roles out across the GHIN-WHS Network. The app should automatically refresh, but if not you can always download here. |
Next Week we will show you the new GHIN Kiosk for when you post at your club this Active Season, which begins on March 15th.

|oUR aREAS Last Ace of the Decade |
All indications are the last Hole in One of the decade was made by Ron Rehling on December 27th as he aced the 143 yard, 3rd Hole at Meadowbrook @ Clayton GC. Ron has been playing the game for 55 years and this was his first one.
Let's hope his next one does not take so long!
The second to last ace came on the Day after Christmas when Jeff Kujawa, aced the 5th Hole on the Vintage Course at Yankee Trace.
We have definitely had some nice weather around the Holidays this year!

|WHS Change Summaries |
|Subject #5: Exceptional Score Reduction|
|OLD WAY: When a player submits two or more Tournament Scores (T-scores) within a 12-month period that are at least 3.0 strokes better than their Handicap Index, they are eligible for an automatic Handicap Index reduction.|
|NEW WAY: When a player submits a score that produces a Score Differential of 7.0 strokes or more below their Handicap Index, they will be subject to an Exceptional Score Reduction.|
If the Score Differential is 7.0 to 9.9 strokes better, a -1.0 reduction will take place. If the Score Differential is 10.0+ strokes better, a -2.0 adjustment will take place.
|WHY: By considering all scores, a player’s Handicap Index will be more responsive to exceptional performances in competitive and recreational play. The adjustment is straight-forward and applied automatically.|
