Handicapping

World Handicap System

Effective January 1, 2020

The World Handicap System (WHS) aims to bring six different handicap systems together into a single set of Rules for Handicapping, enabling golfers of different abilities to play and compete on a fair and equal basis, no matter how or where they play. A single WHS will pave the way to consistency and portability.
