Caitlyn Jenner -- I Won't Have Bruce's Handicap

Caitlyn Jenner I Won't Have Bruce's Handicap

6/3/2015 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner has to start from scratch on the golf course, because we've learned the official golfing organization will NOT recognize her golfing prowess based on her days as Bruce Jenner.

Bruce was a fantastic golfer -- his average golfing score was only slightly above par. In other words, if par was 72, Bruce's average was around 77. In golfer's lingo, he had a handicap of 5.3. A handicap is an important status symbol in the sport.

Here's the problem ... the U.S. Golf Association won't allow Catilyn to use Bruce's handicap. The USGA says it's now irrelevant what Bruce achieved and Caitlyn has to start fresh, based on what she does from this point forward.

But, there's a silver lining. Women get a better handicap than men for the exact same performance. So, assuming Catilyn can play as well as Bruce, she'll end up with a lower (better) handicap.
