Sorry, but if the course rating were 80 with a maximum allowable slope of 155, a 61 still "only" gives a differential of -13.8.

No it wouldn't be anywhere near +20. Here's Phil's: http://www.golfdigest.com/golf-tours-news/blogs/local-knowledge/2013/06/yes-some-tour-pros-have-a-handicap-phils-is-52.html

Tiger's would be probably a little bit better. Still well shy of even +10.

Well isnt competition courses much harder than a normal course. (And I meant +20 on that round not hdcp). Plus Phil must be terrible if he is only 5 strokes better than a scratch golfer. (Also tiger is much better). If that is true though that gives me hope if I am only 10 strokes worse than Phil mickleson!! Also he should have a really good hdcp because he can shoot so low and high. It dosnt count the highs but it will count his 59 1/2

Nick, do you read threads or just start posting in them?

This link is from early on page 1: http://thesandtrap.com/b/the_numbers_game/calculating_the_handicap_indeces_of_the_pros .

That's interesting. He has so many rounds very close to each other. And no I don't read them unless they are a page long.

As you can see, Ben Hogan was once the course record holder with a 64 in 1951. I'm not sure if ratings have changed over the years, but current course information from the tips are: 6,256 yds; par 71; 70.4 rating; 120 slope.
I think tommy gainey holds my course record with 60

Simply put, his handicap is calculated to be "stupid good".

The only pro I could find when doing a geographical GHIN search was Bubba Watson in FL ... he was a +7.7 last time I checked

I did the math for a few pros a couple of months ago.  Rory, I think, and somebody around 50th and somebody around 100th on the money list, and their caps were like +8, +6 and +6.  Not too shabby.

 

But I think the big difference between pros and the rest of us is in our anti-caps.  The bottom 10 of our last 20, not the top 10.  My handicap would probably go up by 5 or more strokes, whereas the pros would probably go up by one or two.

He's only got 8 scores posted.....going back to 1992, so I'd call that one invalid.  :-)
