Inactive Scoring Record

Q.  A player’s Handicap Index® has become inactive. How can a Handicap Index be reactivated?

A.  A Handicap Index is issued through the player’s golf club, not the USGA. The USGA does not have access to individual scoring records or computation service data. Therefore, the player should contact the golf club’s Handicap Committee or the local authorized golf association for assistance. A complete listing of authorized golf associations can be found at http://www.usga.org/HDCPLicensedAssoc/licensed_associations.asp.
