2019 - Handicap Index Guidelines:
We would like to continue to make this TOUR as competitive and enjoyable as possible, while providing a fair and equitable opportunity for players of all skill levels to compete. The integrity of our TOURevents is important to us and our participants, and the following requirements have been put in place...
A verifiable ACGT Tour handicap index will be used. This index is the total average of all individual golfers ACGT Tour Scores. This index will take preference over GHIN or any other handicap indexes. If you do not have a Tour handicap index, you are still eligible to compete in the Tour Event. The ACGT Tour will put you into a flight based on 80% of your USGA Verified Handicap Index or an Average Score. The ACGT Tournament Committee will record all tournament scores into the NEW Tour Handicap Database which is available for public viewing now at Handicap Database
. Two ACGT Tour Scores are needed to create a ACGT Tour Handicap Index. The ACGT Tour will kepp 2 years plus the current season on file to use as a tournament index.
In addition to the tighter ACGT Tour Index Guidelines above, The following Handicap Adjustments Explanation will also pertain to Tour Events:
USGA Section 9 Handicap Competitions Rule States: The committee may, in an exceptional individual case, modify a player's handicap before or between rounds of a competition.
In the event that a ACGT Tour golfer shoots an exceptional tournament score on any event date and requires handicap adjustment for the Next day of, or next Event, the following formula will be used. (3 shots or better below their handicap) In these cases, the amount of shots below your course allowance was divided by two and subtracted from your Handicap. For example, if you shot 3 shots below your handicap, or a 68, 1.5 strokes was deducted from your previous handicap. That becomes your index for the next round/event. However........The ACGT Tour Handicap & rules committee will track these golfers. If any adjusted golfer shoots above his unadjusted handicap, HE WILL RECEIVE the unadjusted index value. The ACGT Tour will strive to protect the integrity of the handicap process for the rest of the 2018 Tour Season & Playoffs.
