I am trying to submit my handicap (USHandicap) to the Myrtle Beach World AM. One of the requirements is that you identify a Pro or Chairman. My group is the Kinston Area #285. We don't have either... and the form will not let you submit without filling out that section..

Anyone else have this problem. If you do, how did you resolve it?

All clubs in US Handicap should have a chair. Log in to your account and roll your cursor over My Game. From here you should be able to click on My Local Club, and from there your club's Chairperson will appear near the bottom right of the view. Clicking on this person's name will give you an option to send a message to them requesting assistance.'

We work closely with the folks that run the Myrtle Beach World Am, so let us know if you run into any issues.

Thanks.
I have sent the two named "Chairmen" a message. Hopefully, I will get a response in the next day or so.

I played in the spring classic this year and now I’m entered in the fall classic and I don’t remember having to do that in those tournaments. What’s the difference in the tournaments?

The World Am is their signature event so they take the handicapping issue to a higher level. The spring and fall tournaments have 2-300 players and is a bit easier for them to verify handicaps. The World Am has what, 3,000 players this year?
I've never played in it but it looks like a great time and a pretty good deal as well.

This is my third year going to the world am tournament it's great time and they are a stickler with your handicap. Once your signed in the next year is a lot easier.

I did it for 3 or 4 years. It's a pretty decent deal if you take advantage of the 19th hole food and you drink a lot. Although I enjoyed it, I quit going because it typically was 5-6 hour rounds so it wasn't conducive to bringing family with me. Add in an hour of travel each way some days. If you play too well you will get DQ'd. You have to play just out of the top 4-5 players and hope they get dq'd so you have a shot at the championship round. I'd much rather go with friends and play 2 rounds a day.

Hopefully the chairman of your club is active on the site (the great majority of them are not) or you at least have his phone number and email because if you shoot scores that are even the least bit below what you're expected to play to then the World Am committee will want to verify your handicap. If they can't get in contact with your club chairman then you're SOL and will be DQ'd.

That's the problem with this site. They get someone to volunteer to be a chairman in exchange for a free handicap. Then the chairman does nothing to enforce club requirements and basically goes AWOL when he loses interest. In your case, I see that he at least logs on and posts scores. Now, proving to the World Am that he organizes club tournaments for peer review of your scores may be an issue beings as there isn't mention of a single tournament on your club page. Good luck!

I wish I had less oI wish I would’ve looked here for this information first! I need to correct my my handicap form I provided World AM. How would I go about doing that?

You.can edit your scores if that's what you mean but even if you edit them your handicap only unpdates on the 1st and 15th of the month.
