Stats FAQs

What’s a certified scoring average?
It is an adjusted scoring average, weighted toward more recent scores and current playing trends. A golfer’s score is adjusted for the par and length of the golf course played and reflects the player’s ability to make par on a given hole compared to other players of similar ability. (Please note, this is not a USGA Handicap Index.)

How is it calculated?
Each score is adjusted for yardage and par against an overall average for courses. Then, the scores played are evaluated on a historical basis to predict more accurately your next score.
