World Handicap System 2020 – Memory of Low Handicap Index
Memory of Low Handicap Index
- A Player’s lowest Handicap Index is remembered within the handicapping formula
- It provides a reference point against which the current Handicap Index can be compared
- This helps to ensure that the player’s current Handicap Index cannot stray too far away from their demonstrated playing ability in too short a period of time.
- If the new Handicap Index is more than a certain number of strokes above the Low Handicap Index, the Cap is triggered
