Greaser, Junior Player of the Year

Our Junior Player of the Year is a brand new award started just this year, primarily due to Austin's outstanding Junior Career and this summers play.  Austin was the 10th-ranked high school senior in the country in the Rolex Rankings which led him this fall to start playing for the University of North Carolina's Golf team currently ranked 23rd.  His World Amateur Golf Ranking currently sits at 413 having been as high as 355.  He made it through the US Open Local advancing to the Sectional at Springfield CC, Qualified for the US Junior that was held up at Inverness and lost in the Quarterfinals to the eventual champion Preston Summerhays.  He closed his Miami Valley season the next week by being a CoMedalist in our US Amateur Qualifier at Moraine before heading to Raleigh to begin his collegiate career.  Congratulations to our 2019 Junior Player of the Year,  Austin Greaser.

THE WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM
Beginning in 2020 a brand-new set of Rules for Handicapping will be introduced globally.
Net Double Bogey

The maximum hole score for each player will be limited to a Net Double Bogey. This adjustment is more consistent from hole to hole than the Equitable Stroke Control procedure. Net Double Bogey is already used in many other parts of the world and the calculation is simple: Par + 2 + any handicap strokes you receive.
