...also, in the Callaway system, the largest handicap permitted is 50. For example, if a player scored 8 on every hole of a course that had par values of 4 on every hole, he would be entitled to a deduction of 7 1/2 holes with a gross score of 144. So, according to the table, the calculated handicap would be (7 * 8) + 4 + 1 = 61. In the Callaway world, this would be reduced to 50 resulting in a net Callaway score of 144 - 50 = 94. 144 - 61 = 83 would be incorrect. I don't know if the Scheid variation has the same restriction.
Good catch there. I've updated my Callaway sheet to include the maximum of 50 for a handicap although the sheet only goes up to a maximum score in the 120s before it decides to call it quits... I guess my assumption was that if someone shoots that high a score they probably need to be on the range not the course!
This is the first time I've checked back on this in a while. It's good to see these sheets are getting some play!
