Playing Handicap Calculation
The following is causing some consternation over here prior to implementation in November.
Note: The calculated 18-hole and 9-hole Course Handicap is rounded to the nearest whole number, with .5 rounded upwards, for the purpose of:
> Applying adjustments for maximum hole score (see Rule 3.1) and when a hole is not played (see Rule 3.2).
> Where applicable, calculating a Score Differential.
Otherwise, the full calculated value is retained and rounding occurs only after the Playing Handicap calculation.
Given that the individual stroke play allowance is 95%, how are players currently using WHS determining their playing handicap? eg 95% of 15.3 or 15.2
