Handicap is a measure of your potential as a golfer, it is used to allow players of different skill levels to compete against each other.
Your current handicap is displayed in the upper right corner of the Handicap page. The rest of the information displayed on this page is determined base on whether your handicap is calculated or overridden.
For a calculated handicap, your last 20 scores are displayed. Scores that are included in the handicap calculation are denoted with an asterisk to the right of the Handicap Differential. For a full explanation on how the calculated handicap is derived, please refer to the Handicap help article.
When a handicap is overridden, it remains static and does not change unless you update by editing your profile. A note appears underneath the current handicap indicating that the handicap has been overridden.
