CONGU should adopt the USGA Golf Handicap System
Golf handicaps in the UK are overseen by CONGU. Central to the UK system is SSS (Standard Scratch Score), a course rating system designed to establish how many shots a scratch golfer would take playing any particular course. The UK system allows only qualifying competitions and a maximum of ten supplementary scores to count towards handicap calculation. The USGA system is superior because 1. The Slope system allows course to be rated for higher handicap players 2. The best 10 of the most recent 20 rounds played count toward the handicap. 3. The USGA Handicap Index is a more accurate reflection of a players ability regardless of which club they below to.
