LGU raises handicap limit

The new handicapping system in women's golf has prompted the Ladies' Golf Union to increase the handicap limit for their championships this year.

"The changes will not affect the quality of the fields but will merely allow the championships to be well supported and continue to prosper," said LGU secretary Julie Hall.

The limit for the British women's amateur championship at Little Aston from June 9-13 and British strokeplay championship at Stirling from August 19-21 rises from four to five.

The girls championship at Holyhead from 4th -8th August goes up from eight to 10 and the seniors championship at Powfoot from 29th September - 1st October from 10 to 12.
