When calculating a player's handicap there is standard method unless you are playing in a league that requires an USGA handicap. The problem with an USGA handicap is the number of rounds required to calculate the handicap. The USGA handicap requires twenty (20) previous rounds. Many golf leagues do not play 20 rounds in a season. In our opinion this handicap was designed for golfers that play more than once a week.

These are only a few examples used by the golf leagues using this service. A feature of this website is to allow any part of the handicap formula to be adjusted to match your golf league.
