Using the Handicap System to improve your Pace of Play
Has this ever happened to you? You're playing a casual Saturday round of golf with friends and the course is packed. You hit your drive and then after a brief search discover that it's out of bounds. You know the Rules of Golf require you to return to the tee and hit again, but the next group is already on the tee waiting to hit and the group in front of you has left the green. It's not practical to return to the tee, but what can you do?
No worries! The Handicap System has you covered. Using Section 4-2. Holes Not Played or Not Played Under the Rules of Golf, you would simply record Par plus any handicap strokes you are entitled to receive on the hole (based on your Course Handicap). If you want to finish the hole, go ahead and drop a ball and play on, but score the hole as above marking that score with an "x" to note that it wasn?t played according to the Rules.
Check out this video to learn more about using the Handicap System to help with Pace of Play.
If you skip a hole or don't play it according to the Rules of Golf (incl. Mulligans) you must post a score of Par plus any handicap strokes you would receive. For example, if your course handicap is 18, you will receive 1 stroke on each hole, so any hole you do not play would be scored as Par + 1. If you play at least 7 holes you can post a 9 hole score using this method to score the un-played holes. If you play at least 13 holes, you can post an 18 hole score using this method.
If you start, but do not complete a hole, or are conceded a stroke you must record the score you most likely would have made had you finished out the hole. Scores in a Competition are generally not Adjusted until posted for handicaps.
