Handicap Computations:

Handicap Index = Multiply the Average of the N best Handicap Differentials by .96

Where:
N depends on the lesser of the actual number of rounds played or 20. N=10 with at least 20 rounds played.
Handicap Differential for each round = (adjusted score - Course Rating) x (113/Slope Rating)

Course Handicap = Handicap Index x (Slope Rating/113)
