What is a Handicap in Golf?
The golf handicap is a brilliant device for equalizing the game and giving not-so-great players the opportunity to compete against great players without being at a disadvantage.
The lower the player’s handicap, the better they are. So, when competing, handicaps determine how many strokes the lower handicap player gives to golfers with higher ones. This way everyone in your foursome can compete – and bet – against each other in a fair manner.
