What is a Modified Stableford ? Rather than counting the total number of strokes taken as in typical stroke play golf , a Modified Stableford involves scoring points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole. Good play earns points and poor play takes away points.
24 Handicap Player A handicap of 24 would give you one shot for every hole plus one extra for the 6 most difficult holes. Therefore, 2 shots for holes with a SI between 1 and 6 and one-shot for holes with an SI of 7 to 18, giving a total of 24 .
How it works: The most common scoring format in Australia , Stableford awards points based on your net score for each hole; the player with the most points is declared the winner. One point is earned for a net bogey, two points for a net par, three points for a net birdie, four points for a net eagle and so on.
Stableford Points Scoring The system works on an handicap basis so players of varying handicap levels can compete against each other on an equal par. For example a player with a golf handicap of 28 would get 2 extra shots on the 10 hardest holes definded by the SI and one shot for each of the remaining 8.
A quota is a number based on a player’s past points performance. Players are awarded points for each hole. If your quota is 12 and your point total for a round is 14, you are a +2 (12-14 = +2) for the round. The player with the highest Plus/Minus for the round is the winner.
High Handicap The highest allowed handicap by the USGA is 36 for men and 40 for women. However, anyone with a handicap above 20 is generally considered to have a high golf handicap .
If the handicap was 7 or less, or if the SI was 11 or more, the player would have got no points, because the par rating would not have been adjusted. If the handicap was 26 , then the player was allowed two shots, that would have made the hole a par 6, so 2 points would have been awarded here.
For example, a 36 handicap would increase the score by 2 on all holes and a 45 handicap would increase their score by 3 on the 9 hardest holes (rated 1 to 9) and by 2 on the 9 easier holes (rated 10 to 18).
Instructions Subtract any stroke penalties from individual hole scores as the game is being played. Add up a player’s raw scores for each hole (minus any penalties as recorded during the game). Add up individual totaled scores and divide by the number of players on a team if you’re competing in groups.
If a golfer plays off a 22 handicap then they will receive 22 shots during the course of the round – 1 on each of the 18 holes and 2 strokes on those holes which are rated in difficulty of 1, 2, 3 and 4.
What is your handicap if you shoot 100 ? If you shoot around 100 for 18 holes, your handicap is roughly a 28 ( 100 -72 = 28).
The stroke index is a numbering system used in handicap golf competitions. Normally the table is included on the scorecard and lists the stroke index of each hole, a number from 1 to 18. Handicap strokes are given at holes where the stroke index of the hole is less than or equal to the number of strokes given.
