|WHS Change Summaries |
|Subject #9: Importance and Determination of Par|
|OLD WAY: Par has little significance because a Course Handicap represents the number of strokes a player receives in order to play down to the Course Rating of the tees being played – not Par.|
|NEW WAY: Par will have an important role within the World Handicap System, requiring Par values to be more precise. The local Authorized Golf Association will determine Par based on yardage and effective playing length guidelines – while also considering how the hole was designed to be played.|
|WHY: The Course Handicap calculation will include a Course Rating minus Par adjustment, which will enable a Course Handicap to represent the number of strokes a player receives to play down to the Par of the tees being played.|
Additionally, the maximum hole score for handicap purposes will be a “Net Double Bogey,” equal to Par + 2 + any handicap strokes the player receives. Also, when a player does not play a hole, “Net Par” must be recorded as their score for the hole. Net Par is equal to Par + any handicap strokes the player receives.
Both procedures benefit from more accurate Par values.
