Pual, I shot -8 with about a -6.5 avg.
I did some more figuring trying to weigh how fair this ended up playing out.
The system is trying to Level everyone at a score of around 50.
If you average 50 your handicap is 0.
My average was below 50 so I had to give shots to those over 50 avg.
If you average all 21 handicap adjusted scores the average is: 49.62.
So based on the numbers it looks like it worked fairly well.
This is a system published online by Chuck Kennedy several years back.
This system uses 80% of scratch/par is what the USGA uses for handicapping.
50 as par, was one of the sheets he had available it seemed to be a good number for the bartlesville course.
DGU also has a system available online, but it costs.
I have run 2 or 3 small events using 100% of the difference in 54 several times.
It seemed like MOST of the time the highest handicaps EASILY won.
So I thought I would try the 80% factor and it seems to work well.
The guy that averages 65 has an easier chance to shoot 55 than...
Me whose average is 47.5 and my best is 42 only room for 5 more shots...
(Thats what happend last night Matt Miller playing left handed shot 54 with about a 65 avg)
65 has about a -12 handicap, 47.5 has right at a +2 handicap.
That is 14 strokes difference in handciap.... But the raw scoring average difference is 17.5.
So there is a little buffer for the lower scoring pros
since they don't have as much room to go low.
Thats why 50 seemed like a good 0 handicap number..
Fair ??? .... Seems like it did Fairly Well.
