Median Handicap Formula
Below is a Example of how we Handicap our League.
Highest and Lowest rounds will be thrown out as the season progresses.
3 Points a Hole
A-Player vs. A-Player = 1 Point
B-Player vs. B-Player = 1 Point
Team Total vs. Team Total = 1 Point (Ties will split the Point)
Handicaps come into play on all three available points each hole. the difference in handicaps are spread out through the hardest handicap holes. Team #1's A-Player has a handicap of 4, Team #2's A-Player has a handicap of 6 the difference being 2 is reflected on the score card on holes with handicap 1 and 2. Both B players have a handicap of 6 so no strokes for the "B" player match. Lastly team # 1 has a combined team handicap of 11 and team #2 has combined 13 again the difference is 2, again on handicap holes 1 and 2 (holes4&15) team #2 gets a stroke off for team score match.
Hole #1 scores as follows.
A-Player match: team #2's 4 beats #1's 5 = 1 point for team #2
B-Player match: both players 6 tie = .5 for each team
Team total match:#2's 10 beats #1's 11 = 1 point for team: #2
hole 1 team #2= 2.5 points team # 1= .5 point
Hole #4 scores as follows (strokes are given to team #2)
A-Player match: team #2's gets a stroke so 5 is a 4 which beats team # 1's 6 = 1 point for team #2
B-Player match; team # 1's 4 beats team # 2's 5 = 1 point for team #1
Team total match: team #2 gets a stroke so 10 is a 9 which beats team #1's 10=1 point for team#2
hole 4 team #2 = 2 points team # 1 point
Each match 54 points are distributed. Points accumulate every week and teams are ranked within division by total points.
