You will be asked to submit your handicap index (if changed since last submission) before each tournament round you play. Indexes will always be due on Mondays prior to each tournament date. The field in each tournament will be divided up in to multiple flights, based on handicap index. Players will compete within their flight for prizes and Player of the Year Race points for that tournament.
The allocation of prizes will be as follows (awarded to each flight in each tournament)

A Players' course handicap for each tournament starts with the handicap index that is submitted/updated prior to every tournament round. Course handicap for each player are then calculated using the handicap index that is submitted/updated prior to every tournament round. Course handicap for each player is then calculated by using the World Handicap System (WHS) calculation to convert your handicap index into a course handicap for your tournament round. The golf course rating (difficulty) and set of tees being played is also part of the equation to figure out a Players' course handicap. As usual, the course and set of tees being played is also part of the equation to figure out a Players' course handicap for the day.
All you need to do is keep your handicap index current, and TGA will take care of the rest! Your course handicap will be uploaded to TGA Live Leaderboards before play begins
Mobile phone scoring for each group allows the field to easily see where they stand on a real-time leaderboard throughout the round. All players can view live net scores, gross scores and real time standings within your flight!
