Handicap Differential

A Handicap Differential is the difference between a player's adjusted gross score and the USGA Course Rating™ of the course on which the score was made. 

The difference is then multiplied by 113, and then divided by the USGA Slope Rating® from the tees played and rounded to the nearest tenth.
