Below is some additional information and frequently asked questions:
Q: Why and when will I need to create a digital profile with a unique email address to log into the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com?
A:In order to improve data security and golfer privacy, golfers will need to create a digital profile to access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com beginning in January 11, 2021. Users are required to have a unique email address to create a digital profile and access the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com.
Q: How do I add my email address to my profile so that my digital profile can be created?
A: You can email the MGA to update your profile within the USGA Admin Portal.
Q: After January 11, 2021, how will I access the GHIN mobile app and ghin.com with my digital profile?
A: When creating a digital profile, you will set a password for your account. You will then log in to the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com with your email address or GHIN Number and the password that you created.
Q: Will I have to update my USGA GHIN mobile app?
A: Yes, you will have to make sure your USGA GHIN mobile app is updated beginning January 11. Once your app is updated you log in with your digital profile.
Q: I share an email address with my spouse/partner, can we log in with the same email address?
A: No, only one digital profile can be tied to one unique email address. The first person to set up a digital profile will “claim” that email address. Another email address must be provided for the other golfer.
Q: What if I do not provide an email address, how can I post a score?
A: If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to create a digital profile and log in to the GHIN Mobile App or ghin.com. You will be able to access a Club Kiosk or have your Club Admin post a score on your behalf.
Q: Will I be able to post a score for my child?
A:Yes, your club can assign you as a guardian for a child. When we launch the digital profile feature in January 2021, you will log in and see a “Change Golfer” link on the GHIN Mobile App and ghin.com. Here, you can change who you are viewing/posting scores for.
