Don't you have to play at least 3 rounds within 12 months to maintain a handicap ?

Probably a new member ...but I thought he would be ineligible to play in a major comp before he had entered 3 others to get an appropriate one for major ones

If he holds a CONGU Handicap and did not submit the required number of qualifying scores last season, his handicap has lost its competition status.

If it is a condition of your knockout competition that players must hold a competition handicap, he shouldn’t be in it if he doesn’t have one.

It is of course possible that he has submitted 3 Supplementary Scores that you don’t know about and does have a competition handicap.

If the competition is open to those who hold a non-competition handicap, that might seem surprising but is entirely up to your club and you get on with giving him a comprehensive gubbing, 8 strokes or no.

I had a similar thing last year and when I questioned it I was told he was playing on a medical exemption.

I should have thought of that one too considering that’s how I have retained competition status for this year.

I have sent an email to the secretary for clarification...there was an issue last year where our major foursomes knockout comp had a finalist pair who did not have valid handicaps so the other pair won by default!...to say some of the earlier losing opponents were not happy was an understatement!

Just been told by the secretary that the oppo had submitted 3 cards "mid summer"...but these did not show up in the new computer system so I am sure they will get further enquiries about this

HTF did he get given a 14? Unless he was less than forthcoming about his previous handicap history when he joined your club and submitted his three cards, your handicap secretary seems to have dropped a bollock.

Had the same at our place. Guy came from course next door off 6 and was given a 14. Won the first comp with a net 61!!

 Another handicap secretary dropping a bollock?   Must be  a growing number of  of singular men out there. 

 It shouldn’t happen, of course. In allotting a handicap to a new member who has previously held a handicap, you must take the previous handicap into account.

he said he had played about 10 comps a year from when he was off 6 so that would be make him off 8/9 and he had been adjusted by a full shot a couple of times due to poor play but I still struggle to see how he got to 14...
