4 Ball Better Ball Club Comps – Update from Barry

For those members playing in the 4BBB pairs knockout competitions and those playing inter club matches please note that England Golf have now changed the handicap calculation as follows.

Firstly, find the course handicap for each player for the course being played (white, gold or bronze). From the four course handicaps, calculate the difference between the lowest handicapped player and each of the other three competitors. Once you have established those three handicaps (the lowest player is always off scratch) you take 90% of that handicap as the playing handicap. The playing handicap is rounded down if the decimal is 0.1 to 0.4 and rounded up if the decimal is 0.5 to 0.9.

I had not appreciated England Golf had planned this change when I set up the summer knockouts so the rules stated in HDIDo are incorrect. Please now apply this formula in all 4BBB matches.

Best wishes

Barry Woledge
