Incomplete Rounds

Golf League Tracker requires that you enter all hole scores for each player (or mark the player as absent) to complete a scorecard. If a player has an incomplete round because of a rainout or some other circumstance, it is suggested you follow the USGA process when a round is incomplete:

  1. Scores for unplayed holes must be recorded as par plus any handicap strokes that the player is entitled to receive on the unplayed holes
  2. Handicap strokes are determined based on the player's FULL Handicap, and not what the player might be receiving in a match play situation

Example 1:

  • 9-hole league
  • Player is a 6 handicap for 9 holes, which means he would get a shot on the 6 hardest holes
  • Holes 8 and 9 are unfinished
  • 8th hole is the 9th hardest, he would not get a shot, and you would enter par (3 + 0 shots = 3)
  • 9th hole is the 4th hardest, he would get a shot, and you would enter bogey (4 + 1 shot = 5)
Hole 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Par 5 4 4 3 4 4 4 3 4
Hdcp 9 13 5 15 1 11 3 17 7
Score 5 5 4 3 5 3 5 3 5

Example 2:

  • 9-hole league
  • Player is a 12 handicap for 9 holes, which means he would get two shots on the 3 hardest holes, and 1 shot on the next 6
  • Holes 7, 8 and 9 are unfinished
  • 7th hole is the 2nd hardest, he would get 2 shots, and you would enter double bogey (par 4 + 2 = 6)
  • 8th hole is the 9th hardest, he would not get a shot, and you would enter par (3 + 0 shots = 3)
  • 9th hole is the 4th hardest, he would get a shot, and you would bogey (4 + 1 shot = 5)
Hole 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Par 5 4 4 3 4 4 4 3 4
Hdcp 9 13 5 15 1 11 3 17 7
Score 5 5 4 3 5 3 6 3 5
