I have a handicap and have enjoyed learning about how it all works. But I'd love to understand the percentage handicap for tournaments. I'm playing in one this weekend. It is a 2-man best ball and they are giving us credit for 75% of our caps.
What is the strategy behind this?
Is it because we are already getting best ball?
Is it to reward better caps since they won't cost them as many strokes?
And is there any trick to applying it to how we score in the tournament or it seems?
Thanks in advance for insight.
