new handicap requirement
Beginning in 2019, in order for a player to qualify for Division I, which would allow you to compete for the championship round, you must have an established USGA handicap upon entry into the tournament. You will be required to provide your USGA GHIN number when you register. To get your free GHIN number, follow the instructions on the handicap information page. Handicaps as of July 1 will be used in the selection of the top 120 players in the field eligible for the championship divisions.
