Calculating a Handicap based on 1 score

TM allows you to calculate a handicap for players using just one round. To handicap players:

  1. On Tournament Parameters tab, make sure the box labeled "Use player's INDEX to calculate his/her handicap" is NOT checked.
  2. Select Tournament Sheet tab.
  3. On the Tools menu, click Automatically handicap players.
  4. Select the method to use. Three methods of handicapping are available. See below.
  5. Type in which flight to handicap or type ďALL" to calculate handicaps for all players.

 


Scheid System

The Scheid System is the United States Golf Association's "callaway" style handicap system. It is a "worst holes" system for un-handicapped events, much like the Callaway System. However, unlike the Callaway system, which almost always assures the golfer with the low gross score wins the low net competition, the Scheid system is designed to give all players an equal chance to win. The system uses the following table to calculate handicaps:

Peoria System

Another alternative is to use a hole score selection system, often called the "Peoria System". With this system, the tournament committee secretly selects a par-3 hole, a par-5 hole and four par-4 holes from an 18-hole course. The par-4s should be representative in difficulty with two chosen from the front nine and two from the back nine. TM calculates the handicap by adding the player's strokes over par on the six selected holes and multiplying that number by 2.8. This will become the golfer's handicap...to be deducted from his gross score. Furthermore, no more than a maximum of three over par on the par-3 and par-4s, and four over par on the par-5 is allowed.




System 36

This system allows you to calculate handicaps based on the number of points a golfer has won.  The standard formula is..


Handicap = 36 - points won


But the default value 36 can be set to any value.

How points are awarded is setup on Tournament Parameters.
