    Six Easy Steps For Figuring Your Golf Handicap Index

    The first step used to figure your Handicap is to take the scores from your most recent last five rounds (These rounds should be 18 holes each).

    The Second Step: Using your scorecard, or the official USGA website. Look up the course slope and rating that you played for each of the rounds.

    The Third Step: Subtract the course rating from the score you made on that course.

    The Fourth Step: Multiply the number you get by 113.

    The Fifth Step: Divide that number by the slope of the course. This number is the differential.

    The Last Step: Take the lowest of your five differentials and multiply it by 0.96, and you will have calculated your Golf handicap.

    If you're looking for an easier way to do this, and keep up with all of your golf rounds and statistics then use our free handicap tracker. It'll figure your handicap for you, as well as keep up with all of your golfing statistics and rounds.
