OK, so we can all dream.........
But lately I've been carding some rounds at 1 and 3 over par. It's likely a matter of time before I do actually get a sub par round and it got me to thinking about figuring a handicap, especially for those that often shoot under par.
My home course is a par 72 71.4/135.
When I shoot a 75 I know that my differential is 3.0 75 - 71.4 = 3.6 then 3.6(113/135) = 3.0 Pretty straight forward
But what if I shoot a 69?
69 - 71.4 = -2.4 BUT if I do -2.4(113/135) the differential actually increases to -2.0 ????????
OR do I inverse the slope and do -2.4(135/113) which decreases the differential to -2.9 ?
AND lets confuse it even more........................
Lets say the average of my 10 best is -2
Do I multiply that by .96 thus raising it again or would I now use 1.04 to decrease the number
OK math guys.....let me have it
