Handicap calculations changed today for those with eight or more rounds.  High and low scores are dropped before calculating handicap.

Some dates for you...the first half will end on week 11 (6/6/2019).  As we've done in past years, double points will be awarded for those who play on league night.  No bonus for makeup rounds.  Show up and bring your A game!  In addition to double points, following week 11, current handicaps will be applied to the first two weeks of league (the handicap setting rounds) and I will award points for those rounds as well.  For week 12, we all start with 0 points and current handicaps to compete for the second half points lead.  The winner of the first half will play the winner of the second half on week 23 for the championship.  There may be a trophy of some sort this year...

4/12/2019 Update

Eight people showed up for week 3!  Chris again logged the hot round with a 65 (-1).  Jane shot a smoking hot 77, her best round at MGO to date, and takes the preliminary lead for week 3.  I will accept make up rounds for those who couldn't make it until Sunday night at Midnight.

 Some insight into how handicaps and points are calculated. 

Your handicap is calculated by subtracting 66 (course par) from your average score as determined by the last 2-6 rounds played, multiplied by .9.  This extra .9 exists to balance things out because it's much easier for a person who shoots in the 80s to cut 10 strokes off than it is for someone who shoots in the 60s.  During the first two years of league, I experimented with different point factors and found .9 to be right for this league.  

Points are determined as follows:

1 point for playing each week

1 point for each other player that is beaten or tied after handicap is applied.

x points to the winner where x = the week number.  This means that as the season goes on and handicaps become more accurate, winning is just a little better than the prior week.

The spreadsheet is updated and I look forward to receiving some make up rounds by Sunday night!

 

4/9/2019 Update

Thirteen people showed up for Week 2!  Welcome to our new players this year, Aiden, Chris, Izzy, and Jared.  Chris had the hot round with a 61 (-5).  Those with two rounds recorded have been assigned a handicap and point distribution will start this week.  For those who missed week one, don't worry...the points scale as we go.
