World Handicap System / GHIN Help


WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM

Leaderboard Systems will interface with GHIN and the new World Handicap System (WHS).  WHS aims to bring six different handicap systems together into a single set of Rules for Handicapping, enabling golfers of different abilities to play and compete on a fair and equal basis, no matter how or where they play. A single WHS will pave the way to consistency and portability.  LS will calculate the new WHS formulas and automatically post your gross and/or adjusted scores to GHIN.  There are additional factors that will now go into determining your net score; course handicap by hole and weather conditions along with your individual handicap.
