Scoring Differential


We use this process to determine our team members.  The process take into account the difficulty of the course and the rating.  This will give us a better representation of the ability of the player.  An example would be if you played at Edgewood and shoot a 79 vs playing at Eagle Valley East and shooting a 79, your Edgewood differential would be lower due to the higher rating and slope.

To determine the Handicap Differential, subtract the USGA Course Rating from the adjusted gross score; multiply the difference by 113, and divide the resulting number by the Slope Rating. Round the final number to the nearest tenth.

BJAC and Hogan Cup Teams, two players each. The “fairest” way we found is to use the differential since it is based on the rating and slope of the course. We use the lowest 4 differentials (out of a possible 7 rounds) of the player from the *asterisk events listed on the Level 3 schedule. By taking the best of 4 differentials it allows players to throw out a high round. Each of the four male players that have qualified can choose which team they would like to play on, starting with the first-place qualifier through the fourth place qualifier.

GJAC team is made up of four female players and we use the same qualifying process taking the top 4 players.
