Competition Play Conditions
Performance Against Target
CONGU use a Mathematical Modelling Formula that they devised to provide a quantitative relationship between how a player should perform over a calendar year (the Target) and her/his actual playing performance. The actual formula will not be released and is protected by legal restraints.
Using the PAT algorithm, if a player’s performance is better than her/his Target then a handicap reduction will be recommended or should it indicate that a player’s playing performance has fallen short of her/his calculated target, then a handicap increase would be recommended.
The Target is different for each handicap category
