||Handicap Calculations: Handicaps are determined by what tee
box you are playing and at what course. Yesterday at Two
Rivers you played Yellow tees with a slope and rating of 67.0 /
111 and tournament handicap was 19. Had you played white
tees your handicap would have been 20 based on slope and
rating of 69.8 / 116. Your handicap, as you see above is
different based on the course we are playing. Your "published"
handicap is based on our home course of Country Hills playing
the white tees, so If I send out general a list of players not
specific to an outing and it lists a handicap it will be based on
white tees at Country Hills .
Our computer software uses USGA rules and guidelines in
calculating an index. This index is recalculated twice a month on
the 1st and the 15th using the best ten of your most recent 20
scores (see USGA handicapping on line for more detail). If you
do not have a history of 20 scores the calculation uses fewer
than ten best. The idea being your index is a fair representative
of the potential score you are likely to score, thus an equalizer
for our competition.
||Tie Breaker Rules: Since we changed to USGA handicapping
we are using the USGA recommended tie breaker:
>If net score is same:
- System looks at holes 10-18 net, if still tied
- Looks at holes 13-18 net, if still tied
- Looks at holes 16-18 net if still tied
- starts at 18 and works back until a winner is found all net.
