One-round Handicap System
The Scheid System computes a handicap based on hole-by-hole scores of a single 18-hole round. It is useful for computing handicaps for a group of unhandicapped players or for players with no playing history on which to base a handicap.
The Scheid System produces approximately equal net scores near par. A calculated Scheid handicap cannot exceed 50 strokes. Generally, an event using the Scheid system rewards skilled golfers who score consistently. Like most one-round handicap calculations, the Scheid System suggests to every participant that they were almost a winner.
The Scheid System is also available for handicapping a Scramble of unhandicapped players.
