We ask every group playing in ORLGA competitive events to keep 2
scorecards for golf rounds. The first will be kept by ORLGA for the
year-round ringers competition, and as the official tournament scorecard.
The second scorecard kept as a backup scorecard will be the handicap
Tournament/Ringers Scorecards should be printed clearly and include:
Handicap scorecards should be submitted for every round of golf played whether at home or away.
We ask every lady playing a round
of golf, whether it be a competitive round, a casual round, or 9 holes, to
submit a scorecard for handicapping purposes and post the correct score
for handicap calculation. Scorecards for rounds played outside OR
contain specific slope and course rating values which may be requested when posting
these outside scores.
Handicap scorecards should be printed clearly and include:
ADJUSTMENTS TO HOLE SCORES**
Unfinished Holes and Conceded Strokes
A player who starts, but does not complete a hole or is conceding a stroke must record for handicap purposes the "most likely score". An "X" should precede this most likely score. There is no limit to the number of unfinished holes to which you can apply the most likely score; however, you must complete 14 holes for an 18-hole round (7 to 13 holes for a 9-hole score).
Guidelines for determining a most likely score
Example 2: Sue and Pat are partners in a four-ball stroke play competition playing the 5th hole. Sue has a maximum handicap score of 9. Sue lies 8, 17 feet from the pin. Pat lies 5, 20 feet from the pin. Pat holes the putt for a 6. Sue picks up her ball on the hole, because Sue cannot better the score of 6 by her partner. Now, Sue's most likely score for the hole with 2 strokes would be a 10; but her maximum handicap score is 9. Sue should record X9 on the scorecard because the most likely score may not exceed the player's maximum handicap score.
Holes Not Played
If a player does not play a hole or plays it other than under The Rules of Golf (except for preferred lies and tournament special rules), the score recorded for that hole for handicap purposes must be par plus and handicap strokes the player in entitled to receive on that hole. This hole score, when recorded, should be preceded by an "X".
This procedure should be used to record scores for any remaining holes if you have completed at least 14 holes in an 18-hole round or have completed between 7 holes in a 9-hole round.
Example: Mae is playing in a stroke play competition and lightning strikes before she hits her tee shot on the 16th hole. She quits. Mae is entitled to 2 handicap strokes on hole 16 which is a par 5, 1 handicap stroke on hole 17, a par 3 and 1 handicap stroke on hole 18, a par 4. Mae must record X7 for hole 16 (par + 2 = 7), X4 on hole 17 (par + 1 = 4) and X5 for hole 18 (par + 1 = 5) as shown below.
Maximum Handicap Score:
Net Double Bogey will be used when a player's actual score or most likely score exceeds a maximum number derived using the formula below.
Sue has a course handicap of 24.
Sue scored a 9 on hole 5, giving a Net Double Bogey of 8 (5 + 2 + 1 = 8), a 10 on hole 10, giving a Net Double Bogey of 7 (4 + 2 + 1 = 7),
and an 11 on hole 16, giving a Net Double Bogey of 9 (5 + 2 + 2 = 9).
Sue's adjusted score 108 is posted for handicap purposes.
Sue's Handicap Scorecard:
Please use a diagonal slash to indicate use of Maximum Handicap Scores on the Handicap Scorecard as shown below.
Example 2: Pat has a course handicap of 18. Pat scored 84 on the same course in a tournament without applying Maximum Handicap Strokes, one terrific score for Pat. However, on the 5th hole she scored a 9. Pat records an 84 for the tournament score but must use a Net Double Bogey adjustment (5 + 2 + 1 = 8) when posting for handicap purposes. Pat must post an 83 for handicap purposes.
