England Golf have now launched their innovative new App, My England Golf (MyEG), which allows golfers to stay up-to-date with their Handicap Index as part of the World Handicap System (WHS).
The app, available now to download for free in Apple and Google Play stores, follows on from the official transition on 2nd November to the new WHS for the 1,800 golf clubs and 630,000 golfers across England.
England Golf has created the app to provide golfers with the ability to access their Handicap Index on the go, as well as to easily keep track of their overall playing record on a regular basis.
The Course Handicap calculator is another unique feature of the new My England Golf app.
This function will allow golfers to cross-reference their Handicap Index with whichever set of tees they will be playing from on a particular day, for any course in the country, in order to work out their Course Handicap.
There is also the opportunity to link up with fellow golfers all over England and follow their progress by creating a ‘Friends’ group.
A golfer’s Handicap Index will be updated at the end of a day where a new score is submitted using an average of the eight best scores from their previous 20 rounds. This information will now be instantly available through the My England Golf app as well as the ‘My England Golf’ Platform on the England Golf website.
