If your course holds a 2 man scramble (handicapped), what is the method that they handicap it ??
I need this info for an upcoming event
When we played in the Father/Son they had that format. They averaged the team handicap and then gave 40% of that number. So I was in as a 5 and my father in law was a 7. We had a team handicap of 6. We got 2 shots.
OK--but where did the 2 shots you got come from? Did higher handicaps get more shots, and lower handicaps get less??
I saw one being played years ago where they either added both handicaps or took an average but it was something like this::
Team handicap 0-9 had to give 3 or 4 shots
Team handicap 10- 17 gave 1 shot
Team handicap 18 -25 got 3 or 4 shots
and so on..
I just don't know how to handicap a scramble so its fair.. It will be a field of about 40.
They get to pick their own partner and handicaps will range from 2 to 25
