If this thread:

http://odgc.ca/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5794&highlight=handicap

is still valid as the means of calculating handicaps, then, if I've done things right, my single best round (of three played thus far) came off the short tees at Fortune at TOSS 7. I shot a 66 that night.

So, I calculate my differential for that night as:

(66-45)*113/82

21*1.378

28.938

Should be a handicap of 28.9, right? (but the handicaps thread shows me with a HC of 26). I really only ask because I want to make sure my home recording system (for rounds outside of TOSS and ODGC events) calculates HC in the proper manner.

Cheers,
Mark

I know they post how to calculate handicap but nobody ever actually does it!

Close. You've correctly calculated your differential for the round, but your handicap is an adjustment of that. It's buried in another thread somewhere, but there is a correction factor of -10% applied to your differential to get your handicap. Take that away, and you get 26.0.

Ahhh, 10%. Knew I was missing something. I'd originally been using the PGA 4%, or whatever it was, and when that didn't work out, I couldn't figure it out any more.

Thanks!
