Maximum strokes for a round


Some leagues limit the number of strokes a player can receive in a round. If your league has such a restriction, please select your maximum strokes from the drop down menu shown in Figure 3 below.


Figure 3: Maximum strokes allowed for the round.



Example: You set the maximum strokes to 9.  John has a handicap of 15 and plays Bob, a golfer with a 2 handicap.  John is entitled to 13 strokes (15-2=13).  However, because of the limitation he is only allowed 9 strokes.
