Caps on Increase in Handicap - POSTER
The WHS limits the upward movement of a Handicap Index by applying a Soft Cap and a Hard Cap based on the player's Low Handicap Index from the previous 12 months.
The Soft Cap will suppress upward movement by 50% after a 3.0 increase over a player’s 12-month Low Handicap Index has been reached.
The Hard Cap will restrict upward movement to 5.0 over the Low Handicap Index from the past 12 months.
