Stableford Scoring

Awarded Shots with Stableford Scoring

Your tee scorecard stroke index is numbered which golf holes you will be awarded shots.

These Awarded Shots will allow you to correctly calculate your stableford points. For each shot of your handicap, you must assign it to a hole.

If you have a handicap of 7, you would be entitled to 7 extra shots. Therefore you would be awarded one extra shot for the 9 most difficult holes, SI of 1 to 7.

Examples

18 Handicap PlayerA handicap of 18 means you would be awarded one shot per hole.  24 Handicap PlayerA handicap of 24 would give you one shot for every hole plus one extra for the 6 most difficult holes. Therefore, 2 shots for holes with a SI between 1 and 6 and one shot for holes with an SI of 7 to 18, giving a total of 24. 

You get points for net score.
1 point for one over par. 2 points for par. 3 points for one under par
[birdie] and 4 points for two under par [Eagle]
Say you were 18 handicap then you would get a shot allowance on every hole
i.e.:

Hole 1.  Par 4 Stroke index 9

If you scored 5 . Then on the card you would show
5/4 for 2 points
If you scored 4.Then on the card you would show
4/3 for 3 points
If you get a birdie then it would be
3/2 for 4 points

If you are down in 2 (eagle) then it is 2/1 for 5 points.

Count back golf scoring

Countback – this is how it works
Especially if you are new to the game, you may have wondered how come the other guy won when you had the same score? Well, the system used to decide is known as count back and is employed when two or more players finish with equal scores. It works by checking back as follows until there is one player clear:Best back 9Best last 6 holesBest last 3 holesBest last holeBest front 9Best holes 4-9Best holes 7-9Best 9th holeIn 14 hole, 12 hole and 9 hole competitions the same system is used with the following variations:14 hole competition:   Back 7, back 3, last hole, etc.
12 hole competition:   Back 6, back 3, last hole etc.
  9 hole competition:   Back 5, back 3, last hole etc.In stroke play competitions exact handicaps are used before countback is implemented.

How many golf clubs in bag?

How Many Golf Clubs Can You Carry?

Carrying the right clubs may help in better golf scores on the course.

Knowing how many clubs you’re allowed to carry is vital if you’re playing in a match play competition or open tournament. The Club rule that local golf associations adhere to about the number of clubs allowed in a player’s bag. Having too many clubs may result in penalties that could make a quality round of golf go South.

Club Limits

According to the Randa.org & USGA, a golfer is allowed to have 14 clubs in his bag. This may include three woods (driver, 3-wood and 5-wood), eight irons, (3-9 iron and pitching wedge), and putter. These are the standard 12 clubs in many golf bags. If the golfer starts with a number of clubs in his bag less than 14, he can add to the number of clubs until he reaches 14.

Borrowing Clubs

In 1988, the USGA altered a rule about club-borrowing that allowed a player to borrow a club from anyone. The borrowed club could be used throughout the remainder of the round. However, in 1992, the USGA changed the rule back to the pre-1988 interpretation that allows you to borrow a club only from a partner you’re teaming up with during a tournament.

Penalties

The penalty for excess clubs is assessed in various golf formats, including the popular stroke and match play formats. Randa.org & USGA requires that golfers in violation of the club limits have the excess club be declared out of play. The club is declared out of play by the golfer’s match-play opponent or fellow competitor in a stroke play competition. A golfer will incur a two-stroke penalty for each hole where the extra club was used, with a maximum penalty of four strokes per round. Match play penalties require a golfer to deduct a hole he won for each penalty up to a maximum of two holes per round.

Extra Clubs

When choosing your 14 clubs, you can usually add two clubs to the normal allotment of 12 clubs in the bag. The last two clubs can be a hybrid driver for use on the fairway and a wedge for the golfer’s short game. Or you may choose to use two wedges, which can include a lob wedge or sand wedge. The lob wedge provides better lift, while the sand wedge may help with those tough bunker shots.

Hybrids

The hybrid golf club is a combination of a wood and iron that can help condense the number of clubs in a bag. Some hybrids look like an iron and some more resemble a 3-wood. The hybrid is counted as one of the clubs in the golf bag but can serve multiple purposes on the course. A hybrid can be used off the tee, as a replacement for long irons and sometimes for chip shots around the green. By using a hybrid, you may be able to eliminate a fairway wood and 3-iron, allowing you to add another wedge in your bag.
