GolfNewsRI Begins Series on New World Handicap System
GolfNewsRI has begun a four part series, this being part one, regarding the new World Handicap System implemented by the USGA.
“With golf season in Rhode Island all but underway, it is important for players to have a basic understanding of the system, as it is a little different. I’m trying to learn it myself,” said GolfNewsRI co-founder Joe Calabro.
