    Legalized Sports Betting and the Tour

    I think it is safe to say that the TOUR is all-in *snickers* on the legalized sports gambling bandwagon. This does not bother me at all. I think gambling should be legalized across all jurisdictions. I don't participate currently, but I might dabble if it becomes legally available in my state...

    Cancelling U.S. Handicap account

    I know a lot of members on THP get their handicaps through US Handicap. It was a good affordable option that worked great for members who don't have a club where they can get a handicap.
