Have you ever seen the PGA International Tournament in Castle Rock, Colorado, teenage home of the HGA founder and wondered what it would be like to keep score that way? We'll here's a handicapped Stableford system to play like the big boys. Here's how it works.
First the Stableford System: Score is kept by points rather than strokes. Eagles or better are worth 4. Birdies are worth 2. Pars are worth 0. Bogies are worth -1. Double Bogies or worse are worth -3.
Now the Handicapped Stableford System: Score is kept by your Handicapped score and the points are the same. So if you handicapped score is an eagle or better are worth 4. Birdies are worth 2. Pars are worth 0. Bogies are worth -1. Double Bogies or worse are worth -3.
At the end of the day all Stableford points a tallied and the purse is split by the total points and distributed to each player by points.
Stableford scoring cannot go below zero, so if you're on zero you can be aggressive. And better yet you can still earn a couple of points on the very last hole!
Please keep your regular score on the HGA score card and your Stableford Score in the Games section.
Enjoy the game of this Colorado kid!
