|Recognizing that a couple of the questions in the Checklist Material (As of 10/18/2018) are automated in the Software we provide to you as a member club therefore you may not be as familiar with the intricacies of the calculations we have outlined the answers to the 5 situations asked in the Club Compliance Checklist.|
|Thanks for completing this checklist as it's a requirement for all clubs who issue Handicap Indexes !|

|In a four-ball match played on a handicap basis, Player A has a Handicap Index of 2.0 and is playing a set of tees with a Course Rating of 74.7 and a Slope Rating of 137, Player B has a Handicap Index of 7.2 and is playing a set of tees with a Course Rating of 72.8 and a Slope Rating of 129, Player C has Handicap Index of 8.5 and is playing a set of tees with a Course Rating of 72.8 and a Slope Rating of 129, and Player D has a Handicap Index of 15.5 and is playing a set of tees with a Course Rating of 70.7 and a Slope Rating of 125. Using the Course Rating of 70.7 as the base tee and adding the difference in the Course Rating for A, B, and C, how should each player’s Course Handicap be allocated for this format?|

|The Committee is informed a member has not been posting scores. The Committee approaches the member who admits to not posting several high scores. The member informs the Committee scores were not posted to keep their Handicap Index low so they could enter a competition. What options are available to the Committee in this situation?|
|C. Both A and B are options for the Committee|
|Player A has a calculated 10-2 value of 24.2 and has two exceptional T-Score Differentials that average 18.2 (both that are more than 3.0 from 24.2) and 7 total eligible T-Scores.|
The difference between the 10-2 calculation and the two best T-Scores is 6.0 strokes.
Based on the Handicap Reduction Table, what would be the Handicap Index?
|B. 22.3 (24.2 - 1.9 Table Value) (Automated through our Computation Service)|
