    The Flaws with the New World Handicap System from “The Pope of Slope” Dean Knuth

    The Flaws with the New World Handicap System from “The Pope of Slope” Dean Knuth

    723: On January 1, 2020 the World Handicap System went into effect in the US along with several other countries around the world. In the US, this new system replaces the old USGA GHIN. Our guest is Dean Knuth, who was a charter member of the USGA Handicap Research Team and also created the USGA Course Rating System in 1976, then later the Slope Rating System to make handicaps more reliable and portable. Hence his nickname “The Pope of Slope”. He’s not a fan of the new WHS nor how it was implemented. He joins us to break it down. He also discusses the latest development in his latest venture as the co-founder and creator of the High Heat 257+ Drivers, Fairway Woods, and Hybrids designed so that amateur golfers can hit longer and straiter shots.  

    Here’s an article that explains features of the new WGS. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/five-keys-to-the-new-world-handicap-system And here’s what Dean had to say in a GolfDigest followup. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/voices-the-flaw-in-the-new-world-handicap-system-dean-knuth

    The Lost Art of Playing Golf featuring co-author Karl Morris

    719: “Golf is meant to be chaotic!” Once we understand that inconsistency is built into golf, then maybe we wouldn’t be so hard on ourselves. This week we speak once again to Karl Morris. Karl and his co-author, Gary Nicol (ep713 “If You Aim at Nothing, You’ll Hit it Everytime) help us to improve our game by improving our demeanor and approach. In their second book, “The Lost Art of Playing Golf” we learn more about the various elements of game improvement that have been lost while we focus trying to reach perfection.

My Fave and the BEST Golf Podcast

Fred's the real deal. He has interesting guests. His own insights are great. He admits when he's wrong, and he doesn't try to hide when he doesn't understand or agree with something. He challenges his guests as well, in a non-confrontational way that pulls more out of them. The bonus in all of this is that his show is FUN and HELPFUL to new golfers or those who've been hacking around courses for decades. Keep doing what you're doing, Fred!
