    I understand the fixed number. Makes it easier for everyone to know when to stop. I think a 9 is too penalizing on a par 3 and not penalizing enough on a par 5. I tend to think double par max would be a much better solution.

    Par is irrelevant, a 9 is a 9. Total number of strokes is all that matters


    Here is my 2.5 Cents due to inflation. 🙂


    Current Method = Max 9: Example a Par 3
    Low Handicap 18 or less = +6 or maybe +5 if given 1 stroke
    High Handicap 19 or more = +5 or maybe +3 if given 2 strokes.

    New Idea = Double Par: Example a Par3
    Low handicap 18 or less= +3 or maybe +2 if given 1 stroke
    High Handicap 19 or more = +2 or maybe +1 if given 2 strokes.

    So we need to ask what would change if the Max was moved from 9 to Double par.

    1. Flights would be the same, all flight would compete against them selves. So no change…

    2. One could say that moving to double par would decrease the length of the rounds, and yes less strokes taken per person would result in speeding up the rounds. So a Good Change…

    3. Some would say that Double par would give an advantage to the Higher handicapper, which I would say that they are not in your flight…

    So in the end from what I see it would only effect the final day/Championship round where all flights compete against each other? Maybe? but if that is the case then the Max 9 rule could then be used for this one day.

    Am I missing or leaving out any factors?

    Currently, from what I see Double Par is a Win Win.. For potentially speeding up rounds.

    Hi William. I like it as well. The “hard 9” isn’t the fairest way to do it, or speed up play. I think there might be a change in this eventually, but not for a while. Great comment Sir!

    think it should be triple net bogey, although I’ve played in a lot of tourney’s where it is double net bogey
