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. 

The USGA began rolling out the World Handicap System in January of 2020. 

“Millions of golfers from over 35 countries around the world are now experiencing the benefits of the new system which is designed to be consistent, inclusive and modern,” writes the USGA.
