I'm wondering how your Blue tees would have a lower Slope but a higher CR than a Blue/White (shorter?) combo, I don't think I've ever seen that before. Beyond that, I'm wondering how you went from the equation for Course Handicap, which calculates the numbers shown in your Index column, to get the Course Handicap column. To me, the Index column numbers should simply be rounded to get Course Handicaps of 0, 4, and 7. That's also what I get from the USGA Course Handicap Calculator page.
DDA played the Blue, my calc in my spreadsheet had him at -1 and it was confirmed our pro.
I never had a chance to speak with the pro to ask where the strokes would fall.
We were playing a "Nine Point Game" and yes we generally played off the low ball.
Half the fun was ribbing Didier (yes he's French) in the end I lost 3 bucks to him, so he got the last laugh...
I just want to confirm that he should have been giving back a stroke on #8 a par 3.
Have you ever tried arguing with a Frenchman?
Here's how this could work: Playing the Masters, you got a spotter at every green. He messages your caddie (a series of claps or yells "mashed potatoes", or maybe just sends a text) to signal what has been happening all day at that green, such as, everybody is missing right. Or is this already happening? Is this allowed?
