On reports why do some golfers have a asterisk (*) beside their name?

On some reports, an asterisk (*) will appear to the left side of a golfer's name. This indicates that his\her handicap or index has changed since the last handicap revision. If you do not want these asterisks to appear on reports, calculate new handicaps twice. In other words, calculate new handicaps, then immediate recalculate handicaps again. The second time you calculate handicaps the handicaps will be the same, thus the asterisks which indicate a change in handicaps will be removed.
