USGA Handicap or Not ?

 Hi, 1st year with GolfSoftware and I was under the impression that this program would provide a real USGA Handicap. I posted my own six scores of 42,39,38,45,41,41 with a rating of 35.1 and a slope of 126. My handicap calculated out to a 4......its set at %100
I can't understand how this is a USGA handicap.


In the program, you decide what type of hcp you want it to calculate. It can calculate USGA/RCGA or custom handicaps. It sounds like you are looking for a 9-hole USGA hcp. This help article tells more about how to set up your program for USGA hcps. http://www.golfsoftware.com/help/hsd/hs.html?USGARCGAMode

Hope this helps!

ok.....so when I click on SETUP and then HANDICAP CALCULATION PARAMETERS it only gives me two options: either CUSTOM HANDICAP or DO NOT CALCULATE A HANDICAP
I can't find where to select USGA Mode.......

 

Probably because you are calculating hcps for 9-holes. You'll have to set up the Custom Handicap using the USGA formula.

Hope this helps!

ok...so how would I set up Custom Handicap using the USGA Formula?
and while Im here....how do I switch an Alternate player to a full-time player in my league?

 

In your help manual, go to 'Custom Mode' and scroll down to find how to emulate the USGA system. http://www.golfsoftware.com/help/hsd/hs.html?USGARCGAMode

Feel free to email or call us to talk about your alternative player.

Hope this helps!
