A score differential which is at least 7.0 strokes or more better than the player’s Handicap Index at the time the round was played.
Score can be from any format of play, competitive or general play and this is not restricted to competition scores.
When a player submits an exceptional score, the handicap formula applies an additional adjustment to the player’s updated Handicap Index.
This adjustment is in addition to any reduction caused within the 8/20 calculation.
The Handicap Committee can override the adjustment if they deem necessary.
