Special Note:

 

Ø  Cap (previously ?Anchor?)* [already in effect]

  • Note ? Change of terminology from ?Anchor? to ?Cap?: There has been a significant amount of discussion in the sports
  • media in recent times around the term ?Anchoring?. This term is generally used in the media with reference to the new Rule of Golf
  • that The R&A is to introduce on 1 January 2016 which will alter what is permitted in making a golf stroke.
  • GA has already had some feedback expressing a view that it is unhelpful to have ?Anchor? (or ?Anchoring?)
  • serve both as a high-profile Rules of Golf term and also as a high-profile handicapping term. As a result,
  • from the time the new handicap system becomes fully operational on 23 January 2014, the term
  • ?Anchor? will be changed to ?Cap? within the GA Handicap System.
