Full Allowance or 7/8ths?
Peter StovoldThe issue of handicaps raises its horny head on a regular basis. In particular the issue of full allowance or 7/8ths.
Why if someone has a genuine handicap of 23 shouldn’t they be allowed their full allocation of shots? Why should they be cut to 7/8ths?
In my opinion the handicap system was designed to give all competitors in an event an equal chance of winning and to provide a level playing field. And I don’t see why we should mess around with a system that is accepted right around the world. I am sure there are lots of opinions on this and I would love to see them aired.
