How we Handicap

 USGA Handicap Manual

Handicap Setup for this League is as follows…
Handicap is 90%
Number of scores handicap based on: 15
Minimum number of scores needed before a handicap can be calculated: 3

AHMGA1
For example, if a player has 20 scores, the underlined parameters above are used to determine which scores to use for  handicapping.

The differentials for these scores are calculated…

AHMGA2

Use the differentials to calculate a handicap.
Out of the 15 available calculated differentials the 3 highest and 1 lowest differentials are discarded (not used).
Differentials ‘used’ are added together…
7+9.1+10.8+5.8+8.7+7.7+10.2+8.0+6.7+5.7..etc.. = 88.5

Then divide by the total number used.
88.5 / 11  = 8.045

Handicap Percent is 90 so –
8.045 x .90 = 7.24 (Digits after hundredth place are deleted)

Now convert the handicap to a ‘course’ handicap using the slope of the course being played.

We will use the back 9 that has a slope rating of 104 from the White tees from this webpage:
