|- Why am I a 12?|
|- "But I'm a 13!!". |
As a Tournament Director how do you respond to these types of questions, particularly 5 minutes before the shotgun start ?
Fortunately, Golf Genius has thought of this and has built the Handicap Analysis page to answer these sorts of questions. This tool can be found under the Rounds Menu for your event and is a great resource to look and see how Playing Handicaps are computed.
As we know, understanding handicaps can sometimes be overwhelming and this Handicap Analysis tool will help everyone better understand how they are computed, even in the most complex cases.
When using the Handicap Analysis tool, you can select what tournament playing handicaps to look at specifically. For instance, you may have an individual stroke play tournament played at 95% of the playing handicap and a skins game played at 50%. Obviously, the playing handicaps will be different for both events.
To see how a specific player's playing handicap was computed, just click on the players name and you can view how their handicap was computed in detail.
If you would also like to make this tool available to your players, you can add the Handicap Analysis Portal Page (Example) to any of your event portals.
If you are interested in more information on this process, please contact Dave Miller at the Golf Association.
