It would get even more complicated than that. What about matches that finish early. What about our last truly competitive round which was anything but.I've always had an issue with matchplay being used for handicaps....and I hope it doesn't come into force here....
At an Old Pharts vs Whippersnappers gig a few years back, I partnered a now ex- forumer in the 4bbb.
I contributed nothing...Zero...not a sausage....not even a putt for a half.....
How can a display like that be used to determine a handicap..?
How can a "most likely score" be generated from playing 1/4 of a round..?
We played Greensomes, both drive, choose the best one and play alternative shots from there. We got smashed 7&6, both played terrible, nowhere near our handicaps. They played very well, certainly better than their handicaps would suggest.
So Mr Handicap secretary, how are you sorting that one out?
