Cheers. Good idea, I've forwarded him the spreadsheet. Calculating handicaps for WHS is best done using spreadsheets and calculators, rather than asking us regular folk to try and apply mathematicsIn scrambles, mixed tee adjustments are still required.

For 4-person scrambles, the adjustment is equal to a quarter of the difference in Course Ratings and added for each person playing from the higher rated tees. Important: rounding of the team Playing Handicap is only done after summing all the individual unrounded allowances and adjustments.

Afraid it does not work on my IPad WJEMIn scrambles, mixed tee adjustments are still required.

0.75 would be subtracted from the team handicap

Thanks. My mistake and I am wrong thinking the 0.75 would be rounded to 0.8 when calculating the team handicap.0.75 would be subtracted from the team handicap

The 0.75 is not roundedThanks. My mistake and I am wrong thinking the 0.75 would be rounded to 0.8 when calculating the team handicap.

These are added together and the sum is rounded to a whole number. That is the team handicap.

Have you tried looking at the calculator. You can see how it works if you try different handicap indices.

Thnks.Really sorry butstill does not work. Downloaded the pages, numbers and another to Ipad pro without success

I don't know what all that is. It is simply an Excel spreadsheet. Can you process excel om Ipads?Downloaded the pages, numbers and another to Ipad pro without success

We had a Texas Scramble at the weekend and the winning Groups were 54.4, 54.7 and 54.8.

I was led to believe the scores should be in whole numbers. I.e 54, 55,55.

Please confirm this is correct and where it is stated. it would not matter for the winner in this case but the 3rd place team could move to 2nd if they had a better back 9. Please clarify.

I have no interest in the final outcome other than having the result correct as I am not in the top 3

Thanks BB, really appreciated

How did your club arrive at decimal scores? The team handicap is expressed as a whole number so the net score for the team must be a whole number. Ties are resolved by the conventional 'back 9, back 6' etc or by however the Committee has declared in the terms of competition.

Maybe the Committee decided that using the non-rounded team handicap in order to minimize/eliminate the work required to do break ties? Even if the Committee is wrong, it's right!How did you club arrive at decimal scores? The team handicap is expressed as a whole number so the net score for the team must be a whole number.

I'd imagine because so many seem to be doing it differently.How did your club arrive at decimal scores?

This year has seen the following round here: Using the old system / using the new system / using the new system but not rounding the decimal point / using the new system but imposing a handicap limit.

I sometimes wonder how many members of comp committees can actually read.

Perhaps they don't like or agree with what they read? Imo, there should be some independence for Committees so they can meet their own needs and wants.I sometimes wonder how many members of comp committees can actually read.
