2. TRIAL AC HANDICAP DOUBLES VARIATION  (Appendix 5, 2013)

Following discussions about the advantage enjoyed by handicap doubles pairs in which one of the players has a very low handicap, the Handicap Committee asked the AC Laws Committee and Council to exercise its power under clause 27(b) of the CA Constitution to authorise the adoption of the following temporary variation of the laws. The variation will be mandatory for tournaments organised by the CA in 2013, and may be used at other events if advertised before the start of play.  

  1. Law 43(a) is replaced by:
    NUMBER OF BISQUES TO BE GIVEN
     Law 37(b)(1) does not apply. The number of bisques to be given by the lower-handicapped side to the higher is the difference between their handicaps. The handicap of a side is calculated by taking the mean of the indexes associated with the trigger points for the handicaps of its members, finding the nearest trigger point with an index equal to or lower than that, and taking the handicap associated with it.

    For example:   

    Pair A  

    -1 and 18

    -> (2250 + 1000)/2 = 1625 -> 1600 -> Hcp 4

    v

     

     

    Pair B

    4 and 9

     -> (1600 + 1300)/2 = 1450 -> 1450 -> Hcp 6

    So B receives 2 bisques (whereas under the standard system A would receive 2 bisques)
