Handicaps

The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis.

Having a handicap index allows golfers to participate in more events (those that require a handicap index), have a measurable means of tracking improvement, and allows score adjustments to even the playing field when playing with golfers of different skill levels.

EWGA Cup Midwest Regional Qualifier Update
September 9-10, 2017
Marble Falls, TX


ewga_cup_2017_green_day_one.jpg
Fort Worth was represented at the 2017 EWGA Cup Midwest Regional Qualifier on September 9-10 at Horseshoe Bay Resort in Marble Falls, Texas.

The Texas Tee Birds had previously advanced to the Nationals in this same tournament in 2014 where they came in third place.

The 2017 Team included Janet Case, Jody Fountain, Terry Rolan, Linda Carter, Jeanne Green, Mary Ann Green, Tami Bopp, and Diann Goodman. They rented a condo with four bedrooms and four baths on Lake LBJ which allowed them to spend more time together as a team. The beautiful back deck allowed them to enjoy the view as they anticipated and allowed them to relive the day's golf adventures.

The Midwest and Central Qualifiers were held at the same location but on alternating courses. The first day of competition for the Fort Worth Team was a Four Ball Match Play competition. The teams consisted of Janet Case/Jeanne Green, Mary Ann Green/ Diann Goodman, Jody Fountain/Terry Rolan and Linda Carter/Tami Bopp. Slick Rock Course had an adjusted slope rating of 72.0 / 127. The team fought hard and ended up with 2.5 out of a possible 4 points.

Day 2 of the competition was on Apple Rock course with a slope rating of 72.2 / 126. This was by far the harder of the two courses but the team was ready to fight to the finish. The elevation changes were breathtaking to look at but hard as heck to adjust to as most of the team went to 16 – 18 holes before accepting the fact that it was not their year to advance. They only won 2 points out of a possible 8 to finish 12th out of the 13 teams (ouch).

Congratulations to the teams that did advance:
  • 1st Rocket City Angry Birds from Hunstville, AL
  • 2nd San Antonio Aces from San Antonio, TX
  • 3rd Windy City Winners from Chicago, IL
  • 4th Houston Grippers & Sippers from Houston, TX
  • 5th Fore Des Moines from Des Moines, IA
In a class act, Houston’s Team Captain, Zona Trahan, came over to the Fort Worth Team table at the Awards Ceremony and thanked the Fort Worth Chapter for sending a box to Houston in the spirit of Hurricane Harvey’s Relief efforts. Zona reported that thankfully, all the Houston EWGA players suffered minor damages to their homes, but some family members lost homes.

Although Fort Worth did not win their matches, they were all thrilled to spend time on the gorgeous courses and see friends and players they've enjoyed competing against in previous years.

It is such blessing to be a part of an organization that allows a group of golfer friends to travel to destinations with beautiful golf courses and to take time to foster friendships that will last a lifetime.

PACE OF PLAY

TIPS TO KEEP IT MOVING

Being a short hitter isn’t the cause of slow play, being inaccurate however does add time to the round. What you do – or fail to do – between shots sets the pace of play, not the number of strokes you take.

Following the guidelines below will keep things moving along smoothly, earning you the approval of the marshal and the gratitude of the group behind you. 

Things you can do to keep up the pace of play:

  • Before starting the round, load up your pockets with tees, divot repair tool, ball markers and an extra ball.
  • Play “ready golf”: whoever is ready to hit, goes ahead – especially shorter hitters who can’t reach the group ahead.
  • Develop a concise pre-shot routine and limit the number of practice swings you take.
  • If you think your ball may be lost or out of bounds, hit a provisional ball, so you don’t have to go back.
  • Limit the time you search for a lost ball.
  • When riding a cart, drop off your partner at her ball and proceed to yours. If you’re the one riding along, take several clubs with you and start walking down the fairway after you’ve hit instead of waiting to be picked up.
  • If you’re playing into the green, take your putter with you as well so you don’t have to go back to the cart.
  • Leave your bag or cart on the side of the green that is towards the next tee.
  • Study your putting line while others are putting and hole out instead of marking your ball.
  • The first one to putt out, picks up the flagstick and replaces it when everyone is done.
  • Don’t linger on the green to mark your score card. Proceed to the next tee and mark cards there.
And the best way to keep up the pace of play? Always, ALWAYS keep up with the group ahead of you! 

VOLUNTEERS / LEADERSHIP

Volunteers are important to the success of the Fort Worth/Metroplex EWGA.
Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one's ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them.
-Harriet Naylor

Feeling inspired? Want to get involved, but don't know where to start? Joining a committee or volunteering for an event is a great way to meet members. We're all busy women, but it is very satisfying, and just plain fun, to work with and get to know other women who enjoy this challenging game as much as we do.
