St. Joseph’s Golf League – 2017 Handicaps
How the Handicaps will work for 2017. This will not only align with the way some of the software
systems do it, it also allows for anyone to be able to figure out their own handicap. By using the 4 lowest
scores of the last 8 rounds keep them fresh and could be updated weekly. This should also help with
preventing anyone trying to pad their scores by sandbagging.
Your last 8 scores will be collected, anything over the last 8 scores are considered expired and will not be
used. From there the lowest 4 scores will be used for Handicap.
Jason’s Scores:

Jason’s lowest scores from his last 8 rounds were +6,+9,+5,+5 these will be added and divided by 4
(6+9+5+5)/4 = 25/4 = 6.25
This will be rounded to a 6 HC
Scott’s Scores:

Scott ’s lowest scores from his last 8 rounds were -2,+5,+4,+4 these will be added and divided by 4
(-2+5+4+4)/4 = 11/4 = 2.75
This will be rounded to a 3 HC

St. Joseph’s Golf League – 2017 Handicaps

If a person does not have 8 scores posted yet their handicap will be based on number of scores
available. There first day on the league their handicap will be what they shot on that day.
Tim’s Scores:

Tim’s first week he shoots a +9, for that week he will be a 9 HCP when he calculates points.
Tim’s second week he shoots a +8 his handicap will be adjusted to (9+8)/2 = 8.5 rounded to 9 HCP when
he calculates points.
Tim’s third week he shoots a +7 his handicap will be adjusted to (9+8+7)/3 = 8 HCP when he calculates
points.
Tim’s fourth week he shoots a +6 his handicap will be adjusted to (9+8+7+6)/4 = 7.5 rounded to 8 HCP
when he calculates points.
Now on Tim’s 5th week he will go into that week as an 8 HCP (because he now has the minimum of 4
scores).
