Happy new year, everyone! Have any of you had the opportunity to give the new WHS a try? I've got three rounds in already this year, and am finally able to post the scores in GHIN, either on the App or the website. I had to reload all of the people I had listed as "friends" in the old system in order to get their indices for our regular play, which took a while.
So far, I'm pleased with the new GHIN App, with a couple of exceptions. First, I don't see a way to quickly change the list of golfers for a given round, to add/subtract people as I move from one course to another. Second, and perhaps more confusing, is the new Course Handicap calculator. To give an example, today I have an 8.6 index. As I enter normal courses that I play frequently, I see some rather odd, to me anyway, results. One of the courses I play has three tees from which I play depending on the group: Blue at 72.1/127; Yellow at 69.4/122; and Red at 66.1/108. When I ask for my course handicap for each set of tees, this is what comes up (in the same order): 10, 7, and 2(!!!!). For another course, the Blue tees (72.8/127) come up also as 10; the Forest tees (70.3/120) come up as 7; but the Silver tees (68.1/116) come up as 7 also. Yet another course is similar to the results for the second one: Blue (72.0/135 - 10; White (69.9/125 - 8); and Silver (66.7/117 - 8). Up until the change, I would have expected 10 or 11, 9 or 10, and either 8 or 9 for each of these tees at each course. Has anyone else noticed this? Does anyone have an explanation? I also use both The Grint and GolfLogix to record scores. I've not seen that either of these yet has the same course handicap results.
Have a great golf year. And remember, FootJoy makes everyday playable.
