Doesn't the way handicaps are calculated get changed next year?

If these new rules are so insignificant as you all seem to be arguing, then you should have no problem letting your next match opponent play by the new rules while you play by the old. Right? It's plain old logic you see. Transitive property and shit. Oh, so you would have a problem with this scenario? Not equitable you say? Well, I agree.

I am not entirely sure, but what I heard is the changes in the handicap systems are postponed to 2020 (or possibly even later).

Anyway, as I understand it these changes won't actually create a single handicap system that is the same throughout the entire world. Individual federations are allowed to define their own ways to implement the system. I guess the European federations will still be using the stableford system whilst the USGA may still be using a modified strokeplay based system.
