USGA Tournament Management rollout to begin this month
Posted February 13, 2017 - Western Pennsylvania Golf Association - Contact
The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association will start its rollout and support of the new USGA Tournament Management product to all interested Member Clubs beginning February 15. The two versions of the product available are USGA Tournament Management Club (TM-Club) and USGA Tournament Management Club Premium (TM-Club Premium).
The USGA Tournament Management product matrix shows the differences between the two products. Each Member Club will need to determine which version best suits the club’s needs. TM-Club will be provided at no charge.
Both TM-Club and TM-Club Premium will replace versions of the Tournament Pairing Program (TPP). Neither TPP Client nor TPP Online will be able to connect to the GHIN Service for the verification of a Handicap Index® or the National Course Rating and Slope Database™ after December 31, 2017. TPP Client will still be operational without the ability to update a Handicap Index® via the GHIN Service.
The WPGA has sent notification of the rollout plan to all tournament administrators at WPGA Member Clubs. Credentials will be issued for TM-Club upon request on a first come, first served basis. After the user’s account has been created, a visit will be scheduled by WPGA staff for product training.
The WPGA will also be conducting a product overview/training seminar on Tuesday, April 4.
The WPGA is committed to providing the best club solutions for tournament administration and handicap computation to all Member Clubs, and we look forward to working with all interested parties to achieve this goal.
