Players tee off and complete their rounds, playing stroke play and scoring in the normal fashion.A player's handicap for the round will be calculated based on the score on those 6 secret holes.A modified Peoria handicap is calculated by adding the player's strokes over par on the selected holes, and multiplying that number by 2.8. This will be the player's allowance to be deducted from the gross score. The maximum hole score for allowance purposes is three over par on par-3s and 4s, and four over par on par-5s.Example: A player scores 98 for a round. The player is 11 over par on the six selected holes.11 x 2.8 = 30.8 = 31 Stroke AllowanceGross Score: 98Net Score: 98 - 31 = 67*Just want to follow along?
