|Subject #3: Basis of Handicap Index Calculation|
|OLD WAY: When a score is submitted, it is converted to a Handicap Differential based on the Course Rating and Slope Rating of the tees that were played. Uses average of 10 best differentials out of most recent 20, and the result is multiplied by .96.|
|NEW WAY: When a score is submitted, it will be converted to a Score Differential based on the Course Rating and Slope Rating of the tees that were played. In addition, a Playing Conditions Calculation will be included to account for any abnormal course or weather conditions.|
The Handicap Index calculation uses the average of the 8 best Score Differentials out of the most recent 20 – with safeguards added to prevent extreme upward movement (see #4) and automatically reduce a Handicap Index if an exceptional score is posted (see #5).
|WHY: An 8 of 20 system will allow for greater responsiveness to good scores and eliminate the need for a bonus for excellence. Safeguards add integrity to the system and support Handicap Committees.|
