The USGA Handicap System This handicap system calculates a players handicap using the course rating and slope rating.
Handicap differentials are calculated for a players last 20 rounds (or all available rounds if less than 20), then the lowest differentials are used to calculate the handicap. The number of differentials used depends on the number of rounds available as follows:
The average of the handicap differentials is then taken and multiplied by 0.96 to give a final figure. This figure is then trucated to 1 decimal point (not rounded), to give the players handicap. This system can be amended to suit your particular golf society by using the advanced settings.
