Have an official USGA handicap? Ever notice that when you look at your past scores, it doesn't show the date of those scores? Well, it wasn't always like that. The USGA changed that policy ahead of the 2008 golf season. Here's an excerpt: "The most significant revision clarifies the definition of 'peer review' to specify the information that must be provided in connection with a scoring record. As a result of these changes, peer review will become more sensitive to privacy-related concerns." Privacy-related concerns? We'll translate: Golfers didn't want nosy bosses knowing exactly when they were on the course.
