Just looked at my best 8 from last 20 scores and number 20 is included which will be deleted after Saturday which is a Stableford Comp..

My HI at present is 18.4 and number 20 has the following from EG App:- score 92, Course22, Slope133,Handicap Diff. 17.8, Course Rating 71.1.

Can one of you WHS experts tell me what Stableford points I need to keep the same or improve and would it be any different if a Medal. A breakdown of the calculation would be appreciate.

Thanks
If you are losing a score of differential of 17.8 from your best 8, you'll want a score that at least matches that to stay the same, so that will replace it in your top 8. It depends on what tees you are playing from in terms of what that actual score needs to be. If the same tees, then likely 92. But, it also depends what the PCC was on the score you are losing, and what the PCC will end up being on Sunday. If you have a bad score, look at the scores (score differentials) in your current worst 12, as the best one of those will end up replacing the one you lose.

In the past if I played an ‘away’ course in an Open there was a CSS for Home and Away players.

Is there still going to,be a differential with a playing Condition Calculation being in evidence which in the past invariably meant a higher CSS for away players?
From memory of when we had the original briefings I think not because the WHS effectively makes it a level playing field as far as handicaps are concerned.

We have a Greensomes next week. 40% lower plus 60% higher course handicap. Are the individual resulting figures worked out to a whole number then added together or as before worked to 1 decimal point, added together and THEN calculated to a whole playing handicap number.

Hope this makes sense.

CH for each player calculated to whole number.

Just looked at my last 20 scores and I'm on my way to a big increase. The next figure to be replaced is far and away my best score and as it currently stands will be replaced by a score 12 shots worse. To add to that, my next 3 scores contain two more of my top eight. I am looking at a 4 shot increase unless I can get my act together over the next couple of weeks.

Isn’t it 40% of higher and 60% of lower?
