The new, World Handicap System is sheduled to launch in 2020.
– The handicap will be calculated from the average of the best 8 of the last 20 eligible handicap rounds
– The calculation of the handicap formula will be based on the average of the best, most recent, scores
– The maximum score per hole for handicapping purposes will be the equivalent to zero Stableford points (net double bogey)
– The maximum handicap will be 54 for both genders
I will put here more details as soon as the official description is issued.
