Preguntas frecuentes

How are the handicaps calculated?

  • Handicaps are calculated by taking an average of the best scores from a number of recent scores.
  • The number of scores averaged and the number they are selected from can both be specified in the plugin settings.
  • Where a player has less scores that the number of scores averaged then all their scores are avaraged to calculate the handicap.
