Digitla conversion tabel vs. printet conversion table

We see golfers more likely to try another Tee when using a digital conversion table

Many golf players face a dilemma when choosing a tee box for their round. They may wonder if they should play from the back tees to challenge themselves, or from the forward tees to enjoy a shorter and easier course. However, choosing a tee box is not just a matter of preference or ego. It also affects the course handicap, which is the number of strokes a player receives or gives based on their handicap index and the difficulty of the course. Therefore, playing from a different tee box can change the course handicap significantly. For example, if a player has a handicap index of 15 and plays from the back tees with a slope rating of 130 and a course rating of 72, their course handicap is 17. However, if they play from the forward tees with a slope rating of 115 and a course rating of 68, their course handicap is 13. This means that they would receive four fewer strokes on their scorecard if they play from the forward tees. This information can help golf players make an informed decision about which tee box to choose. They can see how much their course handicap changes by playing from different tees, and how that affects their chances of scoring well. Whit a digital conversion table they can see at a glance how many strokes they would gain or lose by moving forward or backward, and how that compares with other players. This can also encourage them to try different tees from time to time, and experience the course in new ways. Choosing a tee box is an important decision that can affect the enjoyment and the outcome of a golf round. By knowing their course handicap for all tee boxes, golf players can make an informed decision that matches their abilities and expectations.

World Handicap System

The World Handicap System

Your Handicap Index may change

Finally, players around the world will have an apples-to-apples handicap. Your new Handicap Index will be more responsive to good scores by averaging your eight best scores out of your most recent 20 (currently, it’s 10 out of 20 with a .96 multiplier). In short, your Handicap Index will be determined by your demonstrated ability and consistency of scores. In most cases, for golfers in the U.S., it will change less than one stroke.

You need to know your Course Handicap

In the new system, your Course Handicap will be the number of strokes needed to play to par. This will result in greater variance in that number and presents a change, as historically, it has represented the number of strokes needed to play to the Course Rating. This is a good thing, as par is an easy number to remember. The target score for the day? Par plus Course Handicap. The Course Rating will now be inherent within the calculation to be more intuitive and account for competing from different tees.

Net Double Bogey

The maximum hole score for each player will be limited to a Net Double Bogey. This adjustment is more consistent from hole to hole than the Equitable Stroke Control procedure. Net Double Bogey is already used in many other parts of the world, and the calculation is simple: Par + 2 + any handicap strokes you receive.

Your Handicap Index will be revised daily

One way that handicapping is being modernized is a player’s Handicap Index will update daily (which would provide a fairer indication of a player’s ability in the moment) if the player submitted a score the day before. On days when the player does not submit a score, no update will take place.

Safeguards in the new system

The new system will limit extreme upward movement of a Handicap Index, automatically and immediately reduce a Handicap Index when an exceptional score of at least 7 strokes better is posted, and account for abnormal course or weather conditions to ensure that scores reflect when a course plays significantly different than its established Course Rating and Slope Rating. These safeguards help maintain the accuracy of a Handicap Index, greater integrity within the system and promote fun and fair play for golfers of all abilities.
