Qualifying for events or teams will be done using SCORE DIFFERENTIALS.  This process takes into account the player's score along with the rating and slope of the course being played rather than just the score that the player shoot.  This give us a better representation of the ability of the player.  For example, if a player shoots 79 at Edgewood-Tahoe and a 79 at Eagle Valley East Course, the score differential from Edgewood-Tahoe would be lower based on the more difficult rating and slope.

Below is the USGA formula to determine the Score Differential.
