Here is some information on the handicap system and the handicap results up to this point. If you played both weeks thus far, you now have an official handicap that will be used against your score the next time you play. If you have only played one week, you still have one more week to go until you get an official handicap. The next time that you play, your $5 entry fee will still be spread out amongst the payout ($2), 50/50s ($2), and ACE POOL ($1) to help give you some value until you do get your actual handicap. If you have not yet participated in the league, you will need to get 2 rounds in before you get an official handicap. Your $5 will be spread out like outlined above so everyone has a shot at winning some money. EDIT: If you have not established your official handicap yet, you will play in a separate division until you do so. In other words, you will not be competing directly against the players that are getting their handicaps figured in. Just wanted to clarify this...
Dave Mac and I are trying to figure out a way to incorporate PDGA Ratings and River City Ratings for first timers. Until we figure out a way to make it work, everyone will just have to deal with the 2-week qualification process. Like I stated above, I am still providing a good value for your $5, so hopefully this doesn't discourage anyone from coming out and participating for the first time...
BTW, if you would like your previous/current rounds to be PDGA rated, I am still working with the PDGA to make this happen. With any luck, this will be taken care of by next Monday...I think they have had enough time to recover from the PDGA Worlds already!
EDIT: After talking with the guys at the shop for a bit, we decided to modify the handicap percentages a tad so that they would be a bit more accurate. Also, instead of rounding down to full numbers only, we decided that half-strokes made sense as well.
