Someone asked why, since its a handicap league, are there seperate divisions (ladies and juniors, mens)? I have always figured out the Hcaps with the mens division as a par 54 and the ladies as a par 56. I grouped the juniors (new this year) with the ladies as par 56 as this seems to be a fair assessment of where their scores lie, statistically. If the Juniors want to play with the mens division I will move them and adjust their Hcaps accordingly.
For further clarification:
If you noticed some Hcaps dropped significantly while others had no or little change. Kari D and Dana K especially. Kari played 2 seasons last year plus her Lenora round from the Gwinnett Open. Dana played only 1 season and her round from the GO made her just eligible to have her own Hcap. Kari shot a 62 (-4 strokes off her Avg) and her Hcap dropped 1.1 strokes.
Dana shot a 63 (-5 strokes off her Avg) and her Hcap dropped 2.8 strokes. Because Dana has fewer rounds the difference between her previous Avg altered her Hcap more than Kari's. Hope that helps and NICE SHOOTING Dana and Kari!!
Also showing marked improvement from his 1 season last year is Joe J! His -6.1 Hcap dropped .9 and another even par(or better!) will adjust his Hcap significantly.
If you have any questions about how I have figured the Handicapping feel free to ask here or PM me.
