Nourishment on the CourseWho grabs a hot dog and beer on the turn?
Who feels sluggish by the end of the round?
Nutrition during the round is just as important as pre and post round nutrition, but is often overlooked. First and foremost, hydration!
Daily water intake should be half of your body weight in ounces and half of your daily intake should be consumed during the round.
Electrolytes should be included but skip out on the sports drinks as they add unnecessary sugars. Add a pinch of unrefined sea salt to your water but you shouldn’t be able to taste it!

|Subject 10. Course Handicap Calculation and Application|
|OLD WAY: Course Handicap = Handicap Index x (Slope Rating ÷ 113)|
|NEW WAY: Course Handicap = Handicap Index × (Slope Rating ÷ 113) + (Course Rating – Par)|
|WHY: Beginning in 2020, Course Handicap values will change more from tee to tee, as they will represent the number of strokes needed to play to Par. |
This new calculation will allow players to compete from different tees without any adjustment – unless a difference in Par exists.
Players will be able to determine their Target Scores (the score they’ll shoot if they play to their handicap) by simply adding their Course Handicap + Par.
