Learn how to calculate handicap and calculate your own for free with as little as 1 score.

Your handicap is calculated based on the your most recent 20 rounds of golf. Depending on how many scores you have, a subset of those scores will be used to determine your handicap.

Here is an exact breakdown of how many rounds are used:

If you have 1 or 2 or 3 rounds: best 1 score

If you have 4 or 5 rounds: best 2 scores

If you have 6 or 7 rounds: best 3 scores

If you have 8 or 9 rounds: best 4 scores

If you have 10 or 11 rounds: best 5 scores

If you have 12 or 13 rounds: best 6 scores

If you have 14 or 15 rounds: best 7 scores

If you have 16 or 17 rounds: best 8 scores

If you have 18 or 19 rounds: best 9 scores

If you have 20 rounds: best 10 scores

If you have more than 20 scores, your 20 most recent ones are used for handicap calculation.

Once the number of rounds to use is determined. For each round used you calculate the round handicap. Which is calculated by the following formula:

(score - realPar) = Round Handicap
