An Update on Viewing Your Projected Handicap Index

Posted on 23/10/2020

In the past 24 hours, Scottish Golf has started to run an initial Handicap Index Calculation ahead of the World Handicap System coming into play on 2nd November.

Golfers will notice that a Projected Index is now available to view in the Scottish Golf App and over 4,000 new users have already downloaded the App in the last 24 hours.

We would like to advise all golfers that this is a projected index and may change as we run all the data through the calculator. Additional scores may be added to a record as the calculator runs its process and a final index will not be published until late next week, but we wanted to start giving golfers an idea of what it may look like as we get closer to our WHS go-live date.

With one of the most significant changes to the way Handicapping is delivered across the world, this is a milestone moment which will see Scottish Golf calculate almost 370,000 CDH numbers and records currently available on the CDH database. When running this much data through a system at one time, it is likely there may be some anomalies which we will continue to review over the coming days, and once we go live, golf clubs will have the tools to be able to do an adjustment to align any anomalies.
