The United States Polo Association (USPA) has announced the latest handicap changes. The most important change concerns Hilario Ulloa, his handicap will be raised from 9 up to 10 goals. Over the past weeks he played an impressive high goal season with his team White Birch at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, Florida. In Argentina his handicap had already been raised from 9 goals up to 10 goals by the Argentine Polo Association (AAP) in December 2015, following his stunning performance for team Alegría at the 2015 Argentine Open.
Further changes: Facundo Sola was raised from 8 to 9 goals. He has won the 2016 USPA Gold Cup at the end of March with his team Dubai and was placed second at the 2016 U.S. Open Polo Championship. Julián de Lusarreta, who won the U.S. Open on the past weekend, was raised to 7 goals. Jejo Taranco was upgraded from 6 to 7 goals as well. Grant Ganzi was raised from 1 to 2.
