Exceptional Score Reduction - POSTER
ESR is a procedure for handling certain scores which may indicate the player’s true ability. The ESR rule considers all scores and not just tournament scores. If a player posts a score that produces a score differential 7.0 strokes or better than their Index at the time the score was submitted, an automatic adjustment is made. The existence of the ESR applies an adjustment to up to 19 of the player’s previous scores retroactively, which in turn, automatically adjusts the player’s Handicap Index. When a player has multiple scores with an ESR adjustment, the effect is cumulative. Along wih Daily Revisions, ESR will have the effect of immediately lowering a player's Handicap Index.
