Establishing handicaps for players that have more than 20 rounds on record is easy:
You average the 10 best differentials, and round down to the nearest whole number.
But what about those players that don't yet have 20 rounds on record? How many of their rounds count?

The answer lies here:
Rounds Differentials Counted
0-2 0
3-4 1
5-6 2
7-8 3
9-11 4
12-14 5
15-16 6
17 7
18 8
19 9
20 10
While the numbers may seem arbitrary, they are actually derived from the USGA handicap schedule with the difference that USGA handicaps require 5 rounds in order to establish the first score, and follow a similar structure after that. This has the effect of getting players handicaps much more quickly, but keeping them somewhat low until the 15th round where they begin to stabilize.
