5.   From Congu

Singles Matchplay Competitions 18-Hole Matchplay

White tee C/R 67.2 Slope 113 

Red Tee C/R 72.0 Slope 129 

Norman and Norma both have a Handicap Index of 15.0. Their Course Handicaps are 15 and 17 respectively.

For singles match play the stroke allowance is 100% of the Course Handicap. In addition, because the players are playing from tees with different Course Ratings, the competitor playing over the higher rated course receives the difference in the CR values added to the Course Handicap after the application of the stroke allowance.

In this case Norma receives an upward adjustment of 4.8 strokes (72.0 – 67.2) after the stroke allowance is applied (Rule 6.2b (i)).

Norman’s Playing Handicap = Course Handicap = 15

Norma’s Playing Handicap = Course Handicap + Difference in CR = 17 + 4.8= 21.8 rounded to 22 Therefore Norma receives 7 strokes for the match.
