USGA HANDICAP SYSTEM
- The USGA Handicap System is by and large being universally followed as it allows each player to have a Handicap Index from which a Course Handicap can be derived for play on any rated golf course in the world
- The basic premise of the System is that every player will try to make the best score on each hole in every round, regardless of where the round is played, and that the player will submit the score card for every round played
- Handicap Differential – It is derived from the formula :- Adjusted Gross Score – Course Rating x 113 ÷ Slope Rating
- Handicap Index The average of the 10 lowest Handicap Differentials is multiplied by 0.96, worked out to one decimal place e.g. 12.83 or 12.89 will become 12.8
- Adjusted Gross ScoreAdjusted Gross Score is the Gross Score adjusted by the Equitable Stroke Control which sets the maximum number of strokes for a hole (irrespective of it being a par 3,4 or 5) depending upon a players handicap, as under :
- Course RatingIt is assessed by IGU. It measures the playing difficulty of the course for a scratch player under normal playing conditions. It makes the game fairer for all as on a more challenging course a player is given more strokes.
- Slope Rating It is also a measure of the playing difficulty of the course, and is allotted by IGU.
- Course Handicap The formula is :- Handicap Index × Slope Rating ÷ 113
- Manual Assessment of HandicapThe USGA software automatically works out the Handicap Index and Course Handicap. However, when a handicap seems incongruent to a player’s level of play, the DGCLS Committee may manually adjust the handicap. It would help if members while playing notice such incongruities, and bring it to the notice of the Committee in writing.
