HANDICAP

The Callaway System is a handicap algorithm designed to provide a handicap estimate based on one round of play. The Callaway 'handicap' can then be used to calculate a net score for that round. The Callaway system is quite popular for company outings and tournaments where most  golfers do not have handicaps. It is also relatively straightforward to  calculate. We explain the Callaway calculation below.  The Callaway system is a "worst-holes" calculation, in that it uses up to six of the player's worst holes in a round, adjusted by a 'factor,' to obtain a handicap. That handicap is then subtracted from the player's gross score to obtain a net score.
The net scores for all players can be compared to see who will win the
tournament prize. Use the table below to calculate your Callaway handicap. First, look up your gross score on the left side of the table, and find how many holes you will need to use to calculate your handicap.

Adjustment factor for handicap
 
  • Worst scores cannot be used from the 17th and 18th holes (it is too easy to
    throw the last few holes if a golfer is ahead)
  • For any worst score that is greater than twice the hole par value, only
    twice the par value should be deducted (in the spirit of ESC)
  • Once the scores are added up, round up any fractions to the next higher
    number (e.g. a 7 on a par five that counts as half a worst score should be
    rounded up to a 4)

Finally, adjust the sum of those scores by the
adjustment factor. To find the adjustment factor, look up your score in the
above table. At the bottom of the table, in the same column, is the adjustment
factor. If your sum of worst holes is 18, and your gross score is 89, than your
adjustment factor is +1 and your Callaway handicap is 19.

Your net score
is simply your gross score minus your Callaway handicap (in the above example,
your net score is 89 - 19 = 70).

Here is an example: Imagine a Callaway
tournament where you shoot a 95. You look up in the table and find that your
Callaway handicap is your 2 1/2 worst scores plus an adjustment factor of +2.
Your four worst scores are an 8 on a par 5, a 7 on a par 5, a 7 on a par 4, and
a 7 on a par 3. But, your worst score, the 8, took place on the 17th hole and
therefore cannot count towards your Callaway handicap. In addition, because your
7 on the par 3 is more than twice the par value, it can only count as a six
towards the Callaway handicap. The resulting handicap is 7 + 7 + 6/2 + 2 (Adj
Factor) = 19. Your net score is 95 - 19 = 76.
