Hi all,

 

I recently submitted 3 scorecards to gain an initial handicap.

 

See details of these 3 rounds below:

  1. DSR 78, Scratch Rating 75, Course Par 74, Gross Strokes 108 (34 over par)
  2. DSR 76, Scratch Rating 74, Course Par 74, Gross Strokes 111 (37 over par)
  3. DSR 76, Scratch Rating 74, Course Par 74, Gross Strokes 99 (25 over par)

All round were played at Liverpool Golf in NSW off women's red tees.

 

I was given an initial handicap of 31.6 but I can't seem to work out how this was calculated.

 

I'm following the instructions on Golf Australia's website (https://www.golf.org...3365-source.pdf) but they do not result in 31.6. 

 

Can anyone explain how the above 3 rounds were calculated to an initial handicap of 31.6?

 

Thanks in advance!

That makes no sense - should be wholly based on your best of 3 which was 25 over and with such a high DSR should have been played to 23 over less slope

Slope is 134 so that should be more like played to 19.4


It's like they used your highest score not your lowest - some clubs just enter the same score 3 times for initial handicap - does your Golflink have the 3 cards showing correctly?

Ummm I haven't done a new handicap for a while but when I did it last this was the instructions from Golf Aus.

The 1st 3 cards were processed as stroke

The player was only playing against the scratch rating for the course, No DSR involved

Stableford points for the 3 rounds as per instructions for processing a stroke round into golflink

That is say for your round of Gross 99 and your Stableford points for the day should be a minimum of 47 and the same applies for your other rounds...

Fredy (Effing ridiculous electronic device) does some magic and spits out your starting handicap....

Your 1st 3 cards are not counted in the system as rounds 1 - 3 for calculating your handicap, your 1st round with the recently allocated GA of 31.6 will be the 1st card of 1 - 20 for handicapping purposes....

So if in your 1st comp game of a daily handicap of 36 you play to the 3rd round quoted above you will blitz the field and your handicap will not be 36 the next day.......

For your information the link following is the current instructions for handicapping instructions

Hopefully that helps

Enjoy your first comp round Ms Bonnebell

Aren't the scores for blowout holes reduced to 3 over par for that hole (might be 4 for ladies) and the adjusted results added to come up with the player's score?

Pretty close to what your average score of 32 over was, seems fair to me.

Very old school maths and has nothing to do with the current system !

 

3 x gross scores - 108 + 111 + 99 = 318

Scratch rating -         75 + 74 + 74 = 223

 

318 minus 223 = 95 average divided by 3 = 31.6

I'm here all week :)

You might not be far off the mark there, Jon.

I have known a newbie to take a lesson or two and the Pro estimates a likely handicap which then becomes the official golflink entry.

"What about using the proper GA methodology?" I ask. "It'll all come out in the wash in due course", I'm told.
