The event registration system (TPP) previously used by Western has been replaced by the USGA's new Tournament Management system. In order for you and your partner or teammates to sign up for tournaments, open days and special events, you MUST create a profile in the system. Here are some things to need to know:
1) You must have paid your Western dues and you MUST create a profile in the USGA's Tournament Management system (aka Golf Genius).
2) Have your GHIN number handy when registering as you need to enter it in your profile.
3) Encourage your friends to create their profile in the system, too. Any player without a profile will be unable to be included in a foursome or team/partner event.
4) Board members will be available to help you register at the following events:
-Opening Meeting at Chartiers on 4/11
-Rules Seminar at Shannopin on 4/19
-Afternoon Open Day at Green Oaks (followed by drinks and dinner) on
5). If you prefer to seek assistance by phone, please call:
-Terry Teasdale or Mac Wolfe from the West Penn Golf Association
at 412.826.2180. (Do not leave a message on the WGAWP phone)
-Christine Haythorn at 412.328.6421
-Patti Mansfield at 412.580.1040
