Golf is one of the few sports in which players can compete against themselves, along with paddleball and seeing how many potatoes they can eat. Put yourself to the test with this Groupon.
$9 for a One-Year USGA Golf Handicap Subscription ($18 Value)
An annual subscription lets players earn a USGA Handicap Index after logging their scores for five consecutive 18-hole rounds. The handicap card can then be printed from the website and submitted for use in tournaments and league play.
Like a 24-hour caddie, Golf Pipeline empowers golfers to make tee times, keep tabs on improvement, and follow the on-course exploits of their fellow club swingers. After signing up and creating a profile, golfers enjoy access to the website's tee time reservation system, where they can search for available time slots by date, time, location, and cost, and then invite contacts from their network, Facebook, or LinkedIn to join them. The score tracker lets golfers log rounds and monitor their own performance trends such as stroke average, putts per hole, and greens hit in regulation. If they choose to join a Golf Pipeline USGA handicap club and log five rounds in the system, golfers can submit the data in exchange for a USGA Handicap Index—a helpful number to know when assessing one's own game and betting their parents' house on a round of golf.
