1) I noticed in the score card, under the points, there is/are grey shaded box with underlined figures. What does that mean?

2) Also Can I say that strokes received is the same as course handicap?

Am a PC holder (assuming handicap index of 36.4) and played in 1X18 holes course yesterday. The course handicap chart indicated course handicap of 40 for handicap index 36.4 @ SR of 124.

I tried the course handicap calculation: H.I. X S.R. / 113 = 39.9 (round up 40). However, while using the software, it only shows 37. Hope someone can enlighten me why is it so and how is it tabulated.

Hi oceanmist73,

The grey box with underlined number means that you hit the green "in regulation" (G.I.R.)

For the handicap calculation, the EGA formula is the following:
Playing Handicap (strokes received) = Exact Handicap x (Slope Rating / 113) + (Course Rating par)

It's the one used by the software. USGA and probably other GA use a different formula. There is currently no way to change that formula in the software I'm afraid.

Regards,

Math
