Upon joining the OGT Optishot Tour all New Players will be allocated a -10 Index Handicap as a starting point and will be adjusted for each event as follows.

Please note ESC is now used on all league golf holes. I wont go into too much detail but basically all 10 handicaps or lower can not make more than a double bogey, for handicap purposes ONLY. All rounds that are in our system have been computed and a new total score with ESC included has been calculated. This helps remove blow up holes which are not reflective of ones ability, which is the purpose of the handicap.

Your Handicap will be calculated as follows

Event 1 - Handicap -10

Event 2 - Handicap set to (Lowest Gross - Course Rating) x (113/Slope) ( Eg Lowest Gross Score was 80 on Course Rating of 75, x 113/Slope Rating of 140 so Handicap would be 4)

Event 3 - Handicap set to (Lowest Gross - Course Rating) x (113/Slope) - 1 ( Eg Lowest Gross Score was 80 on Course Rating of 75 x 113/Slope Rating of 140, = 4, -1 so Handicap would be 3 )

Event 4 - Automatic Handicap System takes over, however manual adjustment may be done as above depending on what system allocates as opposed to performance over last 2 events

Event 5 - Fully automatic Handicap system in place, points awarded based on final position and also eligible to win the Event overall

The Automatic Handicap system takes the average of the best 4 out last of 8, the best 4 out of last 9 or the best 5 out of the last 10 rounds, with the net score being calculated using the same formula as the manual adjustments above

Propose handicap limits of -15 to +10 this season.

Also for players returning for this year you will start (including qualifiers) playing on the handicap you finished last season on, with in effect your last 9 rounds all having been played to that handicap.

The system will then be as usual, so your handicap wont probably change all that much for first 9 rounds until all of last seasons rounds are out of the calculation, thats why its worth playing handicap qualifiers to establish a new baseline as will get 6 new rounds worth of data into the calculations, so will only have 3 of last years left in the calculation.

New players your system will work as per this thread, obviously taking into account the handicap upper and lower limits

Hopefully this way will get all settled down by the end of the first proper tour event, and hopefully be a nice smooth transition into the new season. Please bare with me on this, first time we've done any of these things but think me and my excel are all up to date and ready to go :)
