<<Russ has 23 scores prior to event #4 





so the underlined parameters are used to determine 





which scores to use for handicapping. 












2. The differentials for these scores are calculated...

Only the last 5 scores are considered for handicapping. 

















The equation for calculating a differential is ... 







Diff = (Adjusted Gross Score  Rating) x (113 / Slope) 















3. Use the differentials to calculate a handicap. 





Out of the 5 available calculated differentials the 






1 highest differentials are discarded (not used). 






Differentials 'used' are added together... 






6.0+7.9+6.0+7.0 = 26.9 


















Then divide by the total number used. 






PreHandicap = 26.9 / 4 
PreHandicap = 6.725 
















Russ is a regular player, so according to the 






handicap setup the Handicap Percent is 96 






Handicap = 6.725 x 96 

Handicap = 6.45 (Digits after hundredth place are deleted) 












Convert the handicap to a 'course' handicap using the slope of the course being played. (Grandview Golf Course) 

Handicap = Handicap x (Slope / 113) 






Handicap = 6.45 x (120 / 113) 







Handicap = 6.85 


















Final Handicap = 6.85
