A person needs to play at least 10 rounds of golf before you are eligible for a handicap. Once you’ve played your 10 rounds hand in your score card at the end of the match. Your handicap will be 96% of the average of the best 10 of your previous 20 scores. In golf the lower your score the better your handicap is. Some of the more advanced Golf Watches let you program in your current handicap and then it will be reflected in your ending score.
