Interest ing article on giving hints to handicapping committees aa to what they should and should not do in regard to members With the most of the points mention ed I although not with them I was asked quite recently If I was in favor of raising a players handicap after it had been If a players handicap has been fairly adjusted on hs I am not in favor of raising it simply because he is slightly off color and can not play to as I have always maintained that he will come back to his old form and possibly go I have often advised players who have spoken to me about not being able to play their handicap as they had beea in the habit of and who were having a lot of unnecessary worry over their lapse of lay off altogether for a week or a and when they started they found in a verv short time they were playing as well as in fact were able to return bet terscores than they had done pre Nearly all players have the same experience but I do not and never did consider that a sufficient reason to increase any players handi I have known who were treated rather and were asked to do the next to impos sible to win a competition on the handicaps alloted to them by the com Why they should have been placed on the marks they had was more than I could as their average games didnot warrant them being so heavily In cases of that kind I and have fav them being raised to a mark where they at least had a sporting chance of pulling off a With scratch I am against and always have been of allowing them any handicap at all pimply be cause they have gone off their even although they may have been playing under their the great er part of the for if he is a player entitled to be on scratch ItIs up to him to bring himself back to the form of a scratch I re member an instance happening in the first club I was connected It was my third year and I had been very successful in competitions and won my first club championship although my handicap was There were of four scratch play ers in the Near the end of the season a very prize was donated to the club to be played for by stroke been made plus 2 in the One of the scratch players approached the han dicapping committee with a plausible tale of being off color and not having a The committee being sym pathetic and without seriously con sidering what they were doing gave him a handicap of 2 I was told by one of the members before the competition what had been I felt ratier amused and said I know the reason why it has been but I am afraid they will regret for you are not keeping me keep ing yourselves The result the competition proved1 the exscratch player wiping by 1 stroke from a 15 handicap play ed to form under most condi tions deserved the a heavy ailing all the The handicapping committee felt a little sore over It but they bad themselves to With my plus 2 handicap I finished two strokes behind the win Members who play regularly should be handicapped on their average Generally three are accepted as a but if the committee think It advisable they are quite justified In asking any player to jreturn five or With beginners it ii not always good policy to place them on the lim it mark as la so often and beginners should not expect or that they should be in the prize list in their first Although all handicaps should be an near as pos sible arranged to give every one a fair chance ot the beginner should be kept wejl In hand for a time until he begins to shpw his true then hlu handicap jtan be pro perly I do not want auy begin to think that I wish to bo too sev ere on them far from I believe the average beginner will admll that the players Who have played tor two or three seasons and whose handicaps have been reduced from the say to the middle and who have still to win their first ore en titled to the if any there should over Their turn will come along all Some young players strike their form very and come on so fast that it is difficult for the handicap pers just to know where to place They make no mistake in plac ing them in ft mark where they will be safe they can afford to wait for their Innings amongst the If a player does not return scores and the committee cannot get any idea of his he should be barred from taking part in any or made to play from Members should do all in their power to assist the handicapping com mittee and givo them all the informa tion about themselves as well as any others they know To say what system of handicapping is the best Is not so The Calkin system Is well recommended and ap proved by the Royal Canadian Golf Association and copies of the system and handicap table can be supplied by the Canadian Gdlfer who are willing to forward them to any match I think the local secretary should apply for a copy and if workable should
