Par Tournament Explained
A player is allocated a handicap for the 18 holes which in par will be allocated them an extra stroke on certain holes. The Individual Par competition challenges them to beat their own par. If players do exceed their par, they score a ‘+’ (plus) for the hole. If players equal their own par, they are said to have halved the hole which is scored with an ‘O’. If par is not achieved, a ‘-‘ (minus) sign is recorded. At the end of the round, the plus and minus signs are added and the net result is written in as so many ‘up’, ‘down’ or ‘halved’. A player is allowed their full stroke handicap and the strokes are taken at holes as indicated on the card. Where the handicap is more than 18, two strokes will be allowed on the number of holes that the handicap exceeds 18. These strokes will be taken in the same order as followed for the first 18 holes unless the index goes beyond 18. Once again, when marking the scorecard, the number of strokes taken must always be shown for holes where an ‘O’ or ‘+’ is scored. Thus, the card records both strokes and plus, half or minus.
