This is the first I've ever heard of this, but if your formula is right (and it should be close enough for a good comparison), then my anti handicap is 3 strokes higher than my real one. My stroke average for anti is 87.4, average for handicap is 82.5, and the average for all 20 scores is 84.9 (highest score is 91, lowest is 78). The only discrepancy I can see is that in figuring the anti-handicap this way, you don't take into consideration the slope and rating of the various courses you've played. Mine would be a bit closer if the entire handicap formula was applied to the anti scores as well. I used the course rating for my home course for the differential in my calculation as the results were quite skewed when I just used par 72.
